If you keep natural hair, then deep conditioning is an essential hair treatment.
Natural Hair Girl: How to make deep conditioners at home
Are you frustrated with keeping your natural hair? Then, you should try deep conditioning.
This is different from leave-in and rinse-out conditioners. Deep conditioning is the application of mostly natural substances that penetrate the hair deeply and restore damaged hair, and which you do not rinse it off.
The point of conditioning your hair is to repair, rebuild, replenish and revitalise hair brutalised by sun, heat, or bad products. It is usually done after shampooing and using a rinse-out conditioner.
A good deep conditioner should have protein and low molecule fatty acids.
How to deep condition your hair?
1. Make your hair wet
When your hair is wet, then nutrients can penetrate it. Whether you want to deep condition your hair before or after shampooing your hair, it must be wet.
2. Moisturise your split ends
The ends of your hair are the most dried part and dry hair usually causes split ends. That is why moisturising all the parts of your hair including the tips is essential.
3. Cover your hair and apply heat
After applying deep conditioner to your hair, then you should cover it with a shower cap and add a little heat to it. You can create heat by covering your hair with a damp towel and then letting it marinate for 20 minutes.

Olive oil is a great way to moisturise your hair, and eggs add the required protein your hair needs.
Break an egg and add two spoons full of olive oil to it. Add two spoons of water to it.
2. Honey and coconut oil
Honey is also an effective moisturiser and contains certain vitamins, enzymes and minerals.
Coconut oil typically works wonders for hair follicles.
