Using the perfect conditioner isn't enough. Here are the steps we take to properly condition our hair and make it super soft.
1. Properly Wash
Every good condition starts with a great cleanse. Without properly cleansing the hair, the conditioner is unable to penetrate the strands and work its magic.
2. Focus On Ends
I make sure to avoid the scalp and focus the conditioner on the ends of the hair. The amount of product varies, so we start with 2 to 3 pumps and then we add more until the hair feels soft and smooth.
3. Use Fingers
I massage, rub, work conditioner through the ends of the hair. While the hair is being nourished, it's important to use gentle and loving hands.
4. Thorough Detangle
We brush the conditioner through until it is evenly distributed, the hair is soft and fully detangled.
5. Leave A Little Conditioner In
Squeeze (do not rinse) out excess condition. Leaving a little conditioner in the hair keeps the hair hydrated.
Seal With Oil
Once the hair dries, the conditioner will evaporate with the water. So we use oil to coat the hair and seal the moisture in.
