How to Deep Condition Fine Curls

Posted by Customer Care on

Fine curls love deep conditioning treatments but a lot of products on the market can be too heavy. Finding the right amount of 'weight' that your hair can support is key. You want your finished style to be bouncy and light, not heavy and greasy. 

The Trepadora range balances this desired 'weight' amazingly well across all curl types. There was a conscious decision not to use Shea Butter in the range as this can feel and appear heavy for some. The key with the Trepadora range is to use the correct dose for your curl type. This may take a few times of trial and error but start with less and build up. 

Product Recommendation:

We would recommend our Quinoa Repair Deep Conditioner which benefits from quinoa, a complete protein. This gives the hair a smoother and silkier feel. It forms a protective barrier to protect the hair from environmental stresses, retains moisture in the hair and provides essential nutrients.

How To Use:  

Smooth generously onto freshly washed, detangled hair and leave on for 3-5 minutes. For a more intense treatment, cover with a plastic cap and sit under a warm dryer. Leave on up to 10 minutes and rinse thoroughly.

When to Use

If you’re hair isn’t prone to breakage or dullness, it can be hard to know when to use a treatment.

What to look for:

  • If your curls are tangling. Knots and tangles are one of the things that come with curly hair, but if you are finding yourself detangling more than usual, or finding it harder to detangle, you may need to treat your curls.
  • If your curls aren’t as shiny.
  • Your curls are experiencing more frizz. This could be down to dryness. 
  • If you have clarified recently.

Over conditioning

Be careful not to use a deep treatment too often. This can leave your curls oily and flat. Most treatments need to be used weekly, but for finer hair types, once every two weeks should be ok. 

Over conditioning - what to look for 

  • An oily feel to the hair.
  • Flat roots. If your hair is normally bouncy, flat lifeless roots is a sign of weighed down hair.
  • Stiff hair. If your hair feels dry or stiff, this could be because of a protein overload. Deep conditioners work with proteins to repair the hair shaft, an overload will coat your hair too much, making it stiff.
