Dry Hair Conditioning

Like Tree10Likes

Does anyone deep condition on dry hair? I just read the back of my AOHSR conditioner and it says for deep conditioning to use it on dry hair, and then shampoo and condition as usual. I'm...scared to try this. The conditioner works really well for me already, but if it could be even more moisturizing used dry

Anyone tried this? Did using a shampoo afterwards undo all of the good the DT did?
I do that with AOHSR, AOWC and AOGPB condishes all the time. I add a little oil to help me detangle, section my hair off and then let it sit for about 30 minutes under a cap, and then shampoo.

When I do it that way, I find my detangling time is cut down after shampooing.

I deep condition on dry hair every week (well except for the one week I do a protein treatment). But I use my coconut oil and I do it overnight. I get up the next day, water rinse, either shampoo or co-wash depending on the week, condition and detangle, rinse and style w/my whipped shea butter. My hair is way more moisturized deep conditioning this way than it ever was when I did it after washing and then sitting under the dryer.

Ooh I'm gonna have to try this. I was afraid the shampoo would scrub all of the DT moisture out (I like to low-poo and DT on the same day), but it sounds like that isn't the case.

Now that's almost December I need to get some extra moisture into my hair. This sounds like it could be the perfect way.

I never tried that with AOHSR, but I have with other conditioners and I love it. I sometimes put the conditioner on my hair and put it up in a bun before I either go to bed or go to the gym and either cowash or shampoo after. Though I use a lot more conditioner this way, my hair loves me for it.

Lately, I've been conditioning on dry hair before shampooing with SM Purification Masque with good results.

For me, shampooing dosen't undo the effects of the conditioner. This could be because I focus on shampoo'ing my scalp via an applicator bottle.

I love doing this, but I don't have the time now to wait for my hair to dry and then apply it, etc. It gives the best results but I end up using more product.

^^^ The tangling and breakage is another reason I don't do it anymore. It wasn't so much of an issue when my hair was shorter but now ...scares me to think about it

I do this all the time with AO GPB & avocado oil. It's great. It leaves my hair far more moisturized than sitting under the heating cap does.

Dry deep conditioning is crucial as I am low porosity


I shampoo, dry my hair until 85% dry with a t-shirt then apply the DC...

Yep. I deep condition on dry hair pretty regularly. Mostly because I'm lazy that way. I like to do all things with one product. I don't shampoo afterwards, I simply rinse with cold water to close my cuticles (i'm high porosity) and go on about my business. I may add a little grape-seed oil or something for a bit of shine.

I've never seen the point in shampooing it out. Is there something in the deep conditioner that you don't want to stay in your hair? I pick my products based on their versatility in use (I'm down to like 3 or 4 only): TE muds (for now, I think I may have managed to mix up a batch on my own that works just as well), elucence MBC, aloe vera gelly, IC Fantasia gel. I do various mixes with these 4 products. Ive even made a mix of the Elucence MBC, a bit of the mud, and the aloe vera with some grape seed oil and a bit of shea butter slightly melted, a tablespoon of amino acids and distilled water....priceless all-in-one leave-in, styler and sealer for me.

Works for me. I rarely have to shampoo at all because I just don't get build-up. I think most, if not all, of my products rinse out with nothing but water and some vigorous stroking. <shrugs> I'm lazy, it works for me. I do only WnG's, I don't get tangles and SSK's are rare, I don't protective style. I use a lot of protein in my mixes because I'm high porosity. My hair is past my shoulders now after being natural (w/o heat) for a year. Who knew doing nothing would make my hair thrive?

I believe I use only 5 products total in a combo of ways (SM shampoo, Suave condish, shea butter, grapeseed & coconut oil...oh and egg, evoo and mayo for my PT) other than that nada. I just don't have the time nor the patience to do anything else. My hair stays in protective styles 99% of the time and I'm hoping after this recent BC that this reggie will get me to my growth goals.

The only thing I do on dry hair is my hot oil treatment with EVOO. My hair is very dense. If my hair isn't wet conditioners don't spread well over my hair and I end up using twice as much. I have used nearly half a bottle of conditioner before trying to condition dry hair.
