Deep conditioning is essential not only for transitioning hair but also for maintaining healthy natural hair. There is a number of amazing benefits that come with this step but the most important (at least to me) is that deep conditioning prevents damage/breakage, it helps your hair retain moisture, it promotes the elasticity of your hair (that bounce), and it also adds shine. Although you don't apply the conditioner directly on your scalp it promotes growth as well. How?? Healthy hair grows! You have to care for the hair you already have or else it's going to break off at the ends just quickly as it grows. If you want to grow your natural hair it's really crucial that you understand that. Your focus shouldn't be why isn't my hair growing? It should be how can I retain all my length? But anyways! Back to what this post is actually about! There is a lot of great boosters you can add to your deep conditioner to make it work a little harder.
