overnight DT

I'm thinking about doing an overnight Deep conditioning treatment. Do you guys recommend this or not? Does it make a difference?

How do you do it? Do you sleep with a t-shirt (as if you were plopping) or with a shower cap?

ETA: do you put your DT on wet or dry hair?

I usually just put some virgin coconut oil in my hair, braid it, and then sleep with it like that. I sometimes use ojon restoratives but I like the coconut oil more. It makes my hair behave better when I do the DTs.

I do a DT every week (i have one that's only available in the Netherlands) but it doesn't seem to help. That's why i'm going to do it overnight.

Doesn't your pillow get all greasy, hockeymoof??

If I do a real heavy oiling, I will lay a towel down or something so it doesn't get on my pillow, but usually it's just a real light oiling and my hair seems to soak it right up.

When I want to do an overnight DT, I will wash and apply the DT as soon as I'm home from work. I let it dry in my hair and then sleep on it. I use Jessicurl's WDT. It dries kinda producty but I can sleep on it pineappled without worrying about getting my pillow wet. Then when I wake up and rinse, it's super soft and silky.

I shampoo once a week so the night before, I'll rub in a mixture of coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil (just a few drops of each), put my hair into a bun and wrap a satin scarf around my head. I mainly use the satin scarf to keep the oils from rubbing onto my pillow case and ending up on my face since I'm very prone to breakouts.

I use coconut oil and conditioner. I don't use enough conditioner to get my hair really wet or producty because I hate "baggying" my hair when I sleep. I apply the mixture to dry hair and really work it in, in sections. I tie my hair with a satiny scarf afterwards.

In the morning, I either co-wash or shampoo it out. I use about 1 tbsp of coconut oil, and about 3-4 tbsps of conditioner, but then my hair is very dry, quite thick, and not very porous, so needs a lot of product before it starts to react to it. People who typically use very little product would probably use a bit less of each. HTH
HAhaha I thought it sounded strange, I kept thinking about it. But I thought what the heck... if she likes it
