It is generally recommended to deep condition once a week. This can be a pre-shampoo treatment or a masque, but It is also important to figure out if your hair is in need of protein or moisture.
Take the Hair Test
Take a strand of hair and stretch it. If it barely stretches and snaps you most likely need a moisturising treatment like our Miracle Maca Moisture Balm rather than protein. If the hair stretches more than it should and then breaks, you probably need protein. Our Quinoa Repair Deep Conditioner is the perfect protein treatment, and is great to use once a week. Some of us even use it as our rinse out conditioner we love it so much!
You can also test by how your hair feels. As a rule of thumb stringy or limp hair generally needs more protein. If your hair feels tough or hard, it probably has too much protein in it. Overly soft hair that is breaking and won't style has too much moisture. Being natural is all about finding the balance!
