Growing Longer and Healthy Hair Tips

Deep conditioning provides nutrients to the hair follicle that it needs to hydrate and nourish the hair for a shinier and healthier head of hair. Deep conditioning your hair will put moisture back to the hair, strengthen, and prevent breakage by increasing hair elasticity. Deep conditioning should be done regularly especially if the hair is exposed to heat styling tools, chemical treatments and other harmful elements. Deep condition can be use as a prevention measure as well. It should be used prior to using heat styling tools, protective styles that will be worn for a long period of time and so forth.
