How often do you deep condition?

My natural hair has a tendency to become extremely dry, so I try to DC at least 3 to 4 times a month. I cannot give you a specific number of how many times a day you should be DC’ing, but the more moisturized your hair is the healthier it will be. Moisture helps retain length and overall gives hair a more appealing look.

In the beginning of my natural hair journey, I was a “product junkie”. I bought every product I seen and had to learn that not every product works for my hair. One product I still use every now and then to DC is Olive Cholesterol by Hollywood Beauty.

This product will help condition and shine hair. It is lightly scented, creamy and has left my hair feeling extremely soft and more manageable. 

How to apply this product: 

1. Apply the product from the roots to the ends of your hair.

2. Cover your head with a plastic shower cap for 10-15 minutes.

3. Rinse out the product, apply a leave-in conditioner and style as desired.

4 Reasons You Should Love Coconut Oil

Virgin Coconut Oil should be a product that is a staple in your everyday routine because you can use it for so many things. Spectrum’s Virgin Coconut Oil, displayed in the image above is my favorite. I prefer refined, however, in most cases it does not matter which version of the product you use.

Here are 4 reasons you should LOVE coconut oil:

1. You can cook with it!

If you already use Olive Oil as a healthier alternative to cook, Coconut Oil is just as good. It adds more flavoring to your food and is a very light oil when heated.

2. Coconut Oil is a great moisturizer!

No one likes the sight of dry hands… use coconut oil the next time your skin looks and feels dry!  It is great right after a shower for silky, smooth skin and can even be used as a facial cleanser and moisturizer.

Since using this product, I have pushed my scented lotions to the back of my dresser. I no longer have to mix vaseline with my lotion. Coconut oil lasts all day!

3. Coconut oil helps with hair care.

If your hair and scalp is prone to dryness, using Coconut Oil will help wonders. Not only does it moisturize your strands but it helps with retaining length by making hair more soft and manageable. You can use it as a leave-in by applying and then styling your hair. It can also be used alone or with a deep conditioner to rinse out.

4. Coconut Oil has health benefits

Health is essential, especially when it comes to monitoring what is being put into your body. Coconut Oil can be ingested through pills and used as a dietary supplement. Ingesting coconut oil can help aid weight loss, strengthen nails, promote hair growth, promote smoother skin and even whiten your teeth!
