I deep condition about once a week, shampoo every 2 weeks. How do you guys use just regular conditioner? I don't really see how it works in my haircare routine and am curious as to how others use it and how beneficial it is; is it necessary to just use regular conditioner?

My hair is left feeling super soft, strengthened and deeply hydrated and it makes my detangling process so much easier. Now when I am pressed for time then I will pull out one of my regular rinse out conditioners and apply it to my freshly cleansed hair and let it set in my hair for 5 minutes. It leaves my hair feeling really soft, moisturized and makes detangling my hair a breeze. The usage of both deep conditioners and regular conditioners have both been beneficial to my hairs overall health. Which is why I continue to use both.

I use regular conditioners to wash my scalp and to aid in detangling. Some DC's are just not good detanglers. I also have very dry hair and will use a DC in place of a regular conditioner though on a daily basis (the ones that detangle like CJCR). If I want to amp up the moisture I use my heating cap.

How do you style your hair? This may make a difference in why you don't feel the need for it. I wear my hair curly and shrunken 98% of the time in a wash and go- so it needs that moisture. I shampoo about once a week and cowash about 1-2 times in addition to shampooing. I do protein treatments with conditioner about once a week, and overnight pre-poos with coconut oil when I use shampoo.

I use regular rinse out conditioners to cowash/detangle my hair and sometimes style in a pinch.
I shampoo my hair every other day (occasionally stretch it to three days) and use a regular rinse out afterwards each time. I use a deep conditioner once in a blue moon, if I feel my hair's particularly dry.
I think, like lolo said - it depends how you style your hair as to what you need to do.
3b in South Australia.
I usually shampoo my hair every two weeks, or sooner if I have used a lot of product and it feels unclean. deep condition every week. id say my hair is 3c/4a, quite defined, dry curls. My wash and goes will last for a few days with ecostyler gel but I only occaaaasionally use regular conditioner to detangle in the shower, but not very often - Ive had the same one since last october. I'm a huge fan of leave-ins though. I guess everyone is different.. as so far I have not found it necessary, but my hair is quite short, about APL when straightened, so this may be a reason as to why I havent needed more conditioner yet
I cowash once a week with regular conditioner and deep condition once a week.
I deep condition once a week, sometimes twice a week and I think I condition my hair normally 2 or 3 times a week, I wash my hair once every 2 week and co wash it once a week. But I also use conditioner when I don't wash my hair, but with wash n go's and then I leave a little in my hair. I don't always do this, only when I need the extra moisture in my hair, which I usually need during summer
I don't do moisturizing treatments yet, but when my hair may need some protein I use a conditioner specially for protein RO (let in for 5 - 10 minutes) because I rather don't leave proteins in.
For a pre-WnG I apply coconut oil overnight.

How long do you usually let in the conditioner at a moisturizing DT? Is some heat always needed?

Fimu, I haven't done a deep treatment that isn't specifically a protein treatment in a long while but when I do strictly non-protein deep treatments I never use anything more than body heat. I do let them sit for at least 20 minutes up to an hour. I place a plastic cap on my head, and cover that with a towel so that more heat is generated and if anything drips down out of the cap the towel absorbs it. I would leave it in a max of 20 minutes if I had a hooded dryer.

I use certain conditioners to help me detangle and some times for styling if I'm short on products or trying to save money
