3 Benefits of Deep Conditioning Your Child's Natural Hair
Have you ever deep conditioned your child's hair? What did you use? How did you do it?
If you have answers to these questions, make sure to comment below... now, let's get into the benefits of deep conditioning your child's natural hair.
First...WHAT IS DEEP CONDITIONING?
Deep conditioning is a treatment process that infuses moisture into the hair strands and if your conditioner contains protein, it can help strengthen the hair in the process.
One complaint that parents/caretakers have of their child's hair besides growth is the fact that it is not soft enough. The degree of softness varies depends on the age of the child and texture of the child's hair. Deep conditioning helps to bring in adequate moisture into hair that is dry and brittle.
Deep conditioning hydrates the hair strand especially when using as a preventive measure. When hair is not properly hydrated, it will lead to breakage. When deep conditioning is done regularly, it reduces the risk for the hair to break unnecessary.
Elasticity in natural hair is one of the signs of healthy hair. When your child's hair has elasticity, it will not break easily. If you take a strand of hair and stretch it, if it breaks easily and you have not been deep conditioning, then you might want to incorporate it into your child's regimen.
It just takes 15-30 minutes to deep condition. Make sure to incorporate some form of heat to get the best results.
