Deep Treatments & Oil Treatments

What's the difference between a deep conditioner and oil treatment?

Deep treatments help to smooth the cuticle, giving your hair a healthier appearance. Before using a deep treatment, you should always shampoo the hair to remove any dirt or build up. To be effective, deep treatments should be applied to the hair, particularly the ends the hair, and left on for a few minutes (15 to 20 minutes). The best deep treatments or conditioners are water based.

Each strand of hair has 3 layers: medulla, cortex, and cuticle. Deep conditioning affects the outer layer of the hair (cuticle). Think of the cuticle of your hair like you would the shingles on a roof. When shingles are in place on a roof, they overlap and lay down flat. The same is true of healthy hair. With damaged hair the cuticles stand up and away from the hair shaft giving your hair a dry frizzy look. Deep treatments help to smooth the cuticles by filling the gaps with nutrients that help the shingles to lay flat.

In addition to a deep treatment, a hot oil treatment can be done. Hot oil treatments are applied to dry hair before shampooing. Left to sit on the hair for a few minutes and rinsed out. Oil treatments are in the form of a liquid. Hot oil treatments minimize damage from styling by sealing in moisture and preventing frizz. Hot oil treatments soak into the hair.

When should I use a deep treatment or oil treatment?

If your hair is dry, frizzy, brittle or unmanageable, you need a deep treatment.

If you have dry scalp, dandruff, split ends, breakage, dry hair or seriously damaged hair a hot oil treatment should be used regularly.

Should I apply the treatment to wet or dry hair?

Deep treatments should be applied to damp hair.

Hot oil treatments should be applied to dry hair.

Should I shampoo my hair before or after?

There is no need to shampoo your hair after a deep treatment as you would like to retain moisture from the deep treatment. You may shampoo your hair after a hot oil treatment to rid your hair of excess oils.

Why use heat i.e. sit under a dryer?

Heat makes the hair shaft expand so that the treatment is absorbed. Example..when it's hot and humid your hair becomes frizzy because it is expanding to suck up the moisture out of the air.

Why should I rinse out my conditioner with cool water?

Cool water makes the hair shaft contract sealing in the nutrients from the deep or oil treatment.

What are the best hair oils?
