Tips & Tricks: Number Two

Several years ago, my youngest sister gave me a couple little deep conditioning tips. You see, I had been ogling the Ouidad Deep Treatment, because I had been reading so many rave reviews about it. However, the joker was $50 for 8 ounces (8.5 now)!!! I just couldn’t see myself spending that much for a conditioner. *$18 for 8 ounces of Carol’s Daughter Tui Hair Smoothie was already hurting my wallet!!

So, my sister says to me one day, “I don’t think it’s the conditioner per se, I think it might be the technique.” She tells me to allow my DC to cool for 15 minutes after I remove the heat source and then, put my regular daily conditioner over the DC before*rinsing them both. Well, I tried this shortly thereafter and it really seemed to make a difference in how my hair felt after rinsing the DC!! You know how your hair will feel great with conditioner in it? But some conditioners, once rinsed, don’t seem to leave any of the benefits you felt while they were in your hair? Well, after rinsing using this technique with the Carol’s Daughter Tui Smoothie and some Pantene (I think) my hair felt smoother, more supple and as if the moisture from the DC was better retained.

These are the actual directions for the deep treatment from Ouidad.com:

1. Completely saturate clean, damp hair with 2 oz. of treatment on shoulder length hair – a bit more on longer hair.
2. Cover with a shower cap and heat with blow dryer. Allow warm product to remain for 12 minutes.
3. Before rinsing out, add a conditioner to hair. Then rinse both products; allow a little coating to remain.

Under the Deep Treatment section of the Styling Guide,*it indicates,*”Before rinsing, add a daily conditioner to seal in the treatment”*(emphasis added).*My guess is that allowing the DC to cool is recommended based upon the same principle as using cool water to rinse conditioner. As heat will raise the cuticle layer, allowing the hair to cool after removing the heat source facilitates the relaxing/closing of that layer. Then, applying a daily conditioner over the DC somehow helps to further seal the moisturizing agents of the DC into the hair strand like using an oil or butter to seal a water-based moisturizer! That’s just my conjecture.

Anywho, I’ve been employing a modified version of this technique for many years now with much success. Since the beginning of the year, my weekly DC regimen has been as follows:

Section hair into 4.
Apply approximately 2 ounces of DC of choice *(currently, Darcy’s Botanical Pumpkin Seed Conditioner or Shea Moisture Raw Shea Moisture Retention Deep Treatment Masque)*to wet, but not dripping, hair (or 0.5 ounces per section). I ensure the section is thoroughly covered with DC and then twist it until I have four DC covered twists.
Gather four twists together and use rounded-tooth jaw clip to secure ends near top of head and don plastic cap.
Apply *heat for a minimum of one hour (usually a Winter hat).
Remove heat source and allow hair to cool for a minimum of 15 minutes.
While hair is cooling, dilute about a half ounce to one ounce of daily conditioner (currently, Aussie Moist) with approximately 6 ounces of filtered cool water in a dye applicator bottle (I dilute the conditioner because I thought the instructions said a “conditioning rinse.” I’ve applied the daily conditioner full strength in the past, but didn’t notice any reduced benefit when I began diluting it. So, I continue to do so, since it allows me to extend product!)
In shower or sink, pour entire bottle of diluted conditioner over twists, fully saturating them.
Rinse conditioner with cold or cool water (if in sink, I rinse from side to side, never upside down). Rinse well, but not “squeaky clean.”
I believe that one of the major reasons that my hair retains length and stays well-moisturized throughout the week is due to a consistent DC regimen. Though I know there is controversy out there related to deep conditioning and deep conditioning with heat, I’ve always noticed improved hair health and length retention when I deep condition at least once a month. I have achieved the longest hair I’ve ever had in my life since I began DC’ing every time I wash, which is typically once a week.

I've watched this blogger's videos before and like them, and I've *loved* adding heat to my DCs, but I hadn't seen this particular post. I just always rinse out my DC after I take the heat cap off, but this sounds interesting, so I'm gonna have to try it!

hmmm, heat for 1 hour? How would you go about doing that? I can't hold a blow dryer to my head for an hour, and the whole "warm towel" trick never works.

? Did it say 1 hour? (Idk, I might have missed something.) My Hair Therapy heat cap definitely gives off heat for at least 20-25 minutes. I was figuring on just doing that amount of time and then letting my hair "cool off" for 15 minutes as described. I'm too impatient (read "lazy") to hold a blow drier for that long.

ETA -- !! It does say for 1 hour! Hmmm...Well, since she recommends this technique so highly, I'll give it a try for an hour.

She did say she uses "a winter hat" maybe she just puts a knit cap over the whole thing.
Be Happy!

Type:2b/3ab?
Texture:Medium/fine
Porosity:Normal
Elasticity:Normal

Experimenting with too many products to name here. All this great info keeps my head spinning.
I put a bag on my head then a winter hat over it - toasty warm!

I've done a hearing pad before, but if I'm going to leave it in for longer than 5-10 mins, bag and hat works wonders! I've even taken the bag off and slept in just the cap.

Sounds like a good tip. Standard principle of sealing. I'm going to try this with my next deep condition

This last time I did a PT and DT I wrapped my plastic wrapped head in a towel (turban style where it twists at the top of your head) and stuck a heating pad in between the flap of the towel and my head. My head stayed very toasty. :]
CG as of Feb. 2012
combination hair.
2c on top - low elasticity
3a&b scattered underneath - normal elasticity.

I found a dryer attachment at Sally's- it's basically a fabric-y bonnet. I attach it to my dryer and relax.

^^Love that idea. Considered buying a portable heat bonnet (i.e., smaller/cheaper version of the ones st the hair dressers), but just didn't want to lose the space when not in use. That sounds like a great alternative!

I love it. It really isn't meant for drying hair, but it's perfect for my PTs and DTs.
