Do any of you ladies deep condition on dry hair, how do you do it? And what benefits have you seen for this?

You can always try it on dry hair and see what happens! (And let us know!) I'm thinking that doing it while wet will still be very beneficial. And if you use heat (warm towel, warm microfiber cap, etc.) and leave it in for longer periods of time to soak in, I bet it will be even better! But I'm no expert, so these are just my opinions.
I have 3c hair that I haven't straightened in over 5 years. It's just past shoulder length when dry, and almost waist length when pulled straight.

there is a thread about this somewhere on the board

basically I dont do it because I want to clarify my hair of styling products so the DT can absorb into the hair better. I just make sure to squeeze out the excess water after I shampoo so my hair is not loaded with water and prevent absorbtion of the conditioner.
Thick coarse 4b hair. Holy Grail: Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. Trying to grow it to bra strap length. Currently collar bone length.
I actually just did this last week as I posted on another thread with great results.

I used Cantu leave in and coconut oil which I piled on my hair that was sectioned into 4. I sat under the dryer for 20 min, and rinsed. I got better curls than I have ever gotten using any other products or methods.

Originally I had planned to co wash after the DT, but since my curls looked so good, I just went with it. I tried it again several days later with the same two products on wet hair and did not get nearly as good results. My hair was soft and I am sure just as conditioned, but my hair LOOKED better with the DT on dry hair.

ummm....well on another board (don't know if im allowed to say its name) but they had a loong thread about this

basically people said that if they cowash daily that they applied the conditioner to their dry hair because it allowed their hair to soak up the conditioner (cuz hair is often comparedt o a sponge)...then they left it on for like 30 minuted to an hour and then they rinsed it out....

i do this sometimes...i like it

i like suave coconut

Hmmm. Maybe I'll try this by adding honey to one of my cheaper conditioners... I never would have done this without this thread, so thanks for getting me to try something new!

I always towel dry my hair before DCing, my hair abosorbs the product better. Sometimes I DC on non-wash days on dry hair.

I Do it all the time. Its the only way that I get perfectly define curls.I leave conditioner in on dry hair for about an hour with a platic cap on. Then I rinse, squeeze out water then add
creme of nature leave in to hair. The end result is soft shiny curls all day. hth.

10. Do I need to apply heat every time I use your conditioner?

I use heat every time I use my conditioner because otherwise it is a waste to use it without it. Heat of course makes the hairshaft swell open and the product goes inside. Without the heat you are merely wasting the product. I generally only deep condition on the weekend unless I am getting dry breaking hair. On Wednesday I simply wash and put my Dew on then dry my hair.

Prior to doing the Coppola Keratin treatment, I deep conditioned about once a week...I would put a really good conditioner in my hair, comb it through, put a shower cap over it and sleep with it in...in the morning, I would just rinse it out and my hair looked fabulous! You have to be careful about deep conditioning though...if you do it too much, your hair can break.

I just started dry deep conditioning two weeks ago. I bought AOHR. The deep conditioning instructions say to put in on dry hair. I was skeptical at first but I tried anyway. I put the conditioner on at night and rinsed in the morning. My hair was extremely soft. I am going to try it with my other conditioners too.

PS. I added honey and olive oil one time. Unfortunately I do not think my hair like honey. My hair was squeaky feeling. My hair was much better with just the olive oil.

So how does one dry deep conditioner? Wash your hair, lets it dry all the way and put conditioner in it? Thats going to be a lot of conditioner. lol

i think you just put it on your hair dry (no washing). so if your hair is funky or not clean you probably need to not do it then. i do it when my hair doesn't need to be cleansed first....

i'm going to ask the instructor at the natural hair bootcamp (see the 4a thread)....if it's best to deep condition on wet or dry hair.

i always deep condition on dry hair (except after a color, then i do it after color is washed out).
i was told by carlos at mario diab (formerly at devachan) to always deep condition on dry hair. i've found it's made a BIG difference, my hair is so much better.
i apply the conditioner as soon as i wake up, place a plastic cap on, then have breakfast, whatever.... 1/2 hour to 2 hours later i shower and rinse out conditioner.

You can use it on dry unwashed hair.But i think dry washed hair will be better because that hair will be product free and it will absorb the DC more than if your hair isn't washed and it's coated with product.But both ways are good
