Hair Care Tip: Cheap deep conditioning

submitted by Anna, Ithaca, NY USA

Something that I do when my hair gets dry, for example during the summer or after swimming, is to use a regular conditioner (I prefer Herbal Essences conditioner for dry/damaged/permed hair) as an intensive treatment. What I do is squeeze out excess water, comb in a palmful of conditioner, then step out of the shower and blow dry for about 5 minutes. Then, I get back in the shower and rinse it out. It's a simple and inexpensive way to get great results. I know that some people leave in their conditioner but I don't like the sticky feeling my hair gets. Blow drying/adding heat works wonders because it opens up the cuticles in your hair shaft and allows the conditioner to penetrate.

My hair is shiny, conditioned, and tangle free and it smells great after.
