How I Deep Condition During Fall/Winter Months
Its Fall! I love this time of year, despite it never getting too cold down here in Florida, I love to whip out my cute jackets and booties. With minimal humidity it the best time to wear my natural hair out. But one thing about the weather changing so drastically is the effects it has on our hair. Now, I love the weather because it isn’t as humid but the cold does dry out our hair. This is the time to take extra care of our hair to avoid any breakage; it is crucial to keep your hair conditioned and moisturized. I have included my deep deep (lol) conditioning regimen below to assist in a healthy, moisture balanced hair.
2 oz almond oil
2 oz Jamaican black castor oil
1 oz olive oil
1 oz coconut oil
Mix these 4 oils in a bottle and place in cup of hot water to warm (this will melt the coconut oil).
Apply to dry hair from scalp to ends, massaging into scalp.
Cover hair with plastic cap or heated therapy wrap and leave for 30-40 minutes (or up to an hour like me).
Shampoo and Condition
I recommend using your normal shampoo and conditioner that has been working for you.
I used Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil deep conditioner. I apply a generous amount to my hair (not my scalp) making sure to cover from the root to the ends. I then put my plastic cap back on and sit under my hooded dryer for about 15 mins. I then rinse with cool water. and style like normal.
*You can make any necessary changes to this regimen if something different works for you.*
Jamaican Black Castor Oil assists in moisturizing and strengthening hair, since using this oil I feel the thickness in my hair. Olive oil is great for shine and provides long lasting moisture which is perfect for the winter months. Almond oil promotes hair growth preventing breakage. Finally, we all know about the wonderful and many benefits of coconut oil. All of these oils combined are essential is keeping my hair healthy. I repeat this regimen at least every two weeks because my hair tends to get dry. If once a month works for you then that’s fine as well.

I have all of these ingredients. I’m definitely giving it a try this weekend!
I’ll see if I can try this regimen this weekend.
I absolutely love deep conditioning. In the summer I was doing it once or even twice a week. Now that it’s getting cooler I’ve been fighting a cold and avoiding having a wet head as often.
I love a good prepoo. I’ll be using yours next time though
Hey Adrienne! There are many other deep conditioners out there. I would recommend trying another and see how it is on your hair. I switch between a few different deep conditioners depending on how I’m feeling and how they type of results I am looking for.
