This technique adds moisture back into your hair that has been lost due to everyday styling, weather and products. I personally have found that doing a deep conditioner once a week, replenishes that moisture that the hair needs in order to stay healthy and grow. There are a couple ways that you can deep condition your hair. One way, is to purchase a deep conditioner. I enjoy using the small packs that you can find at just about any drug store. ORS Deep Conditioning pack is one of my favorites (cost around $2 per pack). Of course, since the packs are fairly small, I usually end up buying 2.
Tell me a little about yourself and your hair journey.
My name is Melodie Miller (@getslimwithmelodie on Instagram) and I am from Delaware. I’m 20 years old and a junior in college, studying education. I love having natural hair because it is so versatile and beautiful. It feels so good to be a part of a community in which African American women embrace their natural hair and wear it proudly.
How long have you been natural? Have you always embraced your curls?
I guess you could say that I’ve been natural my whole life, but I suffer from heat damage. I’ve been transitioning from heat damage for almost 2 years. I had a really hard time embracing my curls. Coming from a predominantly Caucasian area, I often felt pressured to have long, straight hair. I was never comfortable with my natural hair, until I actually learned how to appreciate it. Now, I don’t know how I couldn’t see the beauty in my natural hair before!
