This blog post was requested by one of my friends (Hey, Ashleigh!). She went to the salon for some bangs and was told by her hair stylist that she needed to set up another appointment for a deep conditioning treatment. Her treatment was only going to run her about $15, but that meant she’d have to pay for the wash, blow dry and flat iron too (an additional $30). Of course she can go to her stylist for the deep conditioning treatment OR she can be cost effective and do it herself (I’m rooting for the latter). So for all the newbies out there that typically go to their hair stylists when they need a deep conditioning treatment this post is for you!

4. Once the hair is completely saturated, cover your hair with a plastic cap (or if you don’t have a plastic cap on hand, then be creative and improvise with a plastic grocery bag).
5. Cover your hair with a towel or sit under a hooded dryer for at least 15 minutes but up to 60 minutes.
6. After at least 15 minutes on your hair: Rinse the conditioner from your hair and Style as usual.
