Using heat while deep conditioning is an easy way to help infuse your hair with more moisture. The use of heat helps the conditioning agents penetrate the hair shaft. I use my Gold N’ Hot heating cap when I deep condition and sit under it for 30 mins to an hours.
Other ways to incorporate heat when deep conditioning:
- Soak a towel in hot water (not scalding hot) and wrap the towel around your head.
- Sit under hooded dryer for 20-30 minutes
- With use of a hair steamer or steam room/sauna if one is available to you.
