Deep hair conditioning treatments???

Hello everyone! I currently use a "cleansing conditioner" instead of traditional shampoo/conditioner (this is an all-in-one that contains no SLS), but I was wondering if a deep conditioning treatment is necessary periodically. I am just not sure that it would do anything since, technically, your hair is "dead" anyway. I mean, can you repair something that is "dead" so-to-speak? I can see where if you have dead/split ends-cutting/trimming your hair would be beneficial, but will a deep-conditioning treatment help...CAN you repair your hair/add moisture to it? Any thoughts would be appreciated! THANK YOU! Love, Linda :D

Hi Sirsha! Thank you for replying to my post! I need all the advice I can get! I will try once per week at first and see how that goes, but your suggestion for twice per week if needed is very much appreciated! I am a little nervous that I won't be able to get all the oil out of my hair...a little confused on the process *scatterbrain*, but I am sure going to give this a try! Sweet Almond oil sounds WONDERFUL!

Thank you Helmi! I do have a question though: So, if I understand the procedure correctly, you put Olive Oil on moistened hair...do you wrap it in a warm towel, or can you just leave it uncovered for the 20 mins? You said to wash as usual and use apple vinegar water AFTER you wash it? Is this just a mixture of "apple vinegar" and water? I'm so sorry...I am just not familiar with how to do this, but I am very excited! I kinda need to be "walked" through it! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your advice! Love, Linda :D

Hi Linda: Any and all kinds of hair conditioning treatments will work magic for your split ends, dryness, brittle hair. If you feel your hair is healthy, do these treatments every 2 weeks (depending on how the result outcome is). But if you've got rough, dry, hair do it twice a week. Also try oil treatments (any oil should do, but I'd go for sweet almond or coconut oil!!!)

Linda, I'm so embarrassed by my mistaken words! Glad you're laughing! One conditioner which comes to mind is "L'Oreal's Total Repair Five Damage-Erasing Conditioner." There are many more, but the olive oil Helmi suggests works beautifully as well.

While no conditioner can truly repair damage, it can smooth hair and *prevent* breakage. The best deep conditioner I've is pure olive oil. I put it on moistened hair and let it set for 20 min. Then wash as usual and rinse with apple vinegar water.

LOL Gigi! I knew what you meant, though! *wink*...and THANK YOU for your advice! Do you have any suggestions for conditioner that works well for color-treated hair? (thanks in advance)!

Excuse me--I meant "hair" being dead (is my face red!) A deep conditioner will coat the hair's cuticle and make hair more responsive and manageable.

For optimal hair health, I have learned that deep conditioning is truly necessary for your hair. I completely understand what you are saying about the head being "dead" anyway, but a great conditioner will soften strands, add volume (depending on the product you use), stop you from pulling hairs with a comb or brush, and leave a high-gloss sheen.
