Conditioners and how they fit into your haircare routine

There are many types of conditioners and it can get pretty confusing when it’s time to purchase one.

What kind of conditioner does my hair need? 

How or when do I use this kind of conditioner? 

These are some necessary questions you need to answer before purchasing that conditioner and we are here to guide you to the answers you seek! 

There are three main types of conditioners; they are, Regular, Surface or rinse-out conditioners, deep conditioners and leave-in conditioners; each one treating a specific need. All of these products have their place in a good hair care routine and you will need to use each of them at different times. 

1. Surface, Regular or Rinse-Out Conditioner

This kind of conditioner is the most common. It has a creamy texture and is very easy to use. Rinse-out conditioners are designed to treat the outside surface of the hair cuticle, smoothing and protecting from potential damage. In an ideal routine, a rinse-out conditioner should come after shampooing. Apply an amount of this conditioner to the hair and work it through from root to ends, leaving it there for a few minutes, before rinsing out of the hair completely. Rinse out conditioners work well on all hair types. Use Deeva Detangling Rinse Out Conditioner after every wash.

2. Leave-In Conditioners

After shampooing and conditioning the hair, the next step of a good routine is to apply a leave-in conditioner and leave it in (as the name implies). Leave-in conditioners contain surfactants which allow the product to spread out and treat each hair strand with a thin coat of conditioner. They help your hair feel soft and moist long after wash day has ended. They should also be used for daily hair moistuizing.  Deeva Softening Leave-in Yoghurt is suitable for all hair types.

3. Deep Conditioners 

As the name implies, is designed to treat/condition the hair deeply. It’s texture and consistency is usually thicker and creamier and should be left to penetrate the hair anywhere for about twenty to thirty minutes under a heat/steam cap or at least an hour under a plastic shower cap. After steaming the hair, the product should be thoroughly rinsed out of the hair with room temperature water. There are two kinds of deep conditioners;

Protein Deep Conditioners

Protein repair conditioner can help to strengthen and rejuvenate hair that is weak and brittle;

Moisturizing Deep Conditioners

They are formulated to smooth over the cuticles and seal in all the moisture that’s been added to the hair.

Deeva’s Deep Treatment Hair Masque puts these two types of conditioners together as one product to cut down on the number of products you get and reduce wash day time.

 It’s best to use a deep conditioner once every 4-6 weeks or as needed. Deep conditioners are a must for all hair types, especially dry and damaged hair. 

So the next time you go shopping and meet an assortment of conditioners, remember you absolutely need the three kinds of conditioners in your hair care routine.
