It’s no secret having thick textured hair requires moisture. One way to lock moisture into the hair is to give it a good deep conditioning treatment. When it comes to deep conditioning relaxed or texlaxed hair, the extra moisture is definitely necessary. Now I’m not one to keep going in and out of the shower after shampooing then conditioning so deep conditioning after my hair has been in a towel is not really my fortay. My laziness is why I choose to do my deep conditioning on my dry texlaxed hair. (What is texlaxed you ask? Read all about it in the suggested posts down below). I like for my hair to be saturated by conditioner instead of water anyway so doing it this way makes me feel like my hair is just soaking up the good stuff.
I’ve been trying new deep conditioners lately and nothing has really wowed me. That is until two weeks ago when I was in the beauty supply store and ran into an update on a classic haircare product. Queen Helene has released Cholesterol with Argan Oil Hair Conditioning Cream and it is the bomb!!! I’ve used it two weekends in a row and it has my hair soft, manageable and truly conditioned.
If you followed my hair journey over on the Kay’s Ways YouTube channel, you know I’m no stranger to mixing up concoctions when it comes to deep conditioning. Since Queen Helene Cholestorol products is a brand that I can trust, I was comfortable enough just adding oils. In this case, I used my holy grail hair care oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, 100% Pure Argan Oil and a new oil I’ve been using, Almond Oil that I’ve purchased from Mielle Organics. I’ve been using this Almond Oil for about a month or so now and I can say I’m really digging how soft it makes my hair so adding it into my deep conditioning mixture was a no brainer.
Before applying my deep conditioning mixture, I went in with my favorite prepoo. I haven’t really talked about it here on the blog yet, but it’s been featured in plenty of my hair videos over on the YT. This Tropic Isle Living Strong Roots Pimento Hair Growth Oil is the business. The hair closest to my scalp feel like roots for real, growing in so thick and strong. When I apply this prepoo oil to my scalp and massage it in, the oil runs down the shaft of my hair just straightening out all that thickness that I’m dealing with. You’ll get to see exactly what I mean in the deep conditioning demo in the video down below. The Tropic Isle Living Strong Roots Pimento Oil definitely helps to reduce any of the tangles in the roots I used to get. You can see how thick my hair is in the picture, yeah the fact that you can see none of the nozzle let’s you know this bush is serious in there. But at 5 months post now, I’m approaching the time to texlax my hair again before the summer kicks in and my hair gets too hot to handle.
I went in and applied my deep conditioning mixture all throughout my hair using my hands but parting it in between almost as if I was applying a relaxer to it. I knew I had some things to do around the house so I let my hair sit underneath a plastic cap along with my Thermal Hair Care Hot Head deep conditioning cap for a couple of hours before I rinsed it out and washed my hair in the shower.
(BTW if you was thinking about purchasing your own Hot Head, now’s the time. They are having a Mother’s Day special, 10% of orders now through May 4, 2015. Check out Thermal Hair Care here)
At 5 months post relaxer, my hair is still pretty manageable. I’m still able to finger detangle for the most part, well except them roots; I told y’all it’s dangerous in there. It’s only until recently, after that dreaded Winter we had that my ends are feeling dry and needing the extra love of deep conditioning. Once I relax it next month, I’ll be trimming my hair again to remove alot of this over processed ends that have been growing out.
The pictures from this post were taken last weekend but I loved the outcome of it so I filmed it for the Kay’s Ways YouTube channel this time around. Feel free to catch my whole Deep Conditioning Relaxed Hair | 5 Months Post Texlax video down below.
The cost of the Queen Helene Cholestorol with Argan Oil Hair Conditioning Cream and the fact that I’m loving these results will have me wanting to deep condition more often, even if only on my dry hair 😉 Besides this deep conditioner, the ones in my stash haven’t really given me life so I’m down for some suggestions. What’s your favorite deep conditioner? Let me know in the comment section down below.
Until next time, Stay Blessed Beauties!!!
Keep Up With Kay!!!
