As many of you know I am a hair stylist.. I am not currently doing hair but I was for the past 4 years or so and at my salon I charge $55 for a deep condition treatment. When girls ask for it I always say that I am happy to do it (obviously, it is business for me) but I also recommend just buying a deep conditioner for the around that same price and that way you can do them at home weekly by yourself. Some people just want the salon experience with the nice head massage and blow out but if you would rather get more bang for your buck buying a deep conditioner is the way to go. The only problem I found was that, in my salon I would put them under the dryer for 15-20 min for the heat to help open the cuticle and let all the nutrients in, and at home I didn’t have a dryer. So I rigged one. I know different versions have been on Pinterest but this is what works best for me.
I wash my hair with hot water in the sink with shampoo like normal, then I towel dry it just so its not dripping – you want it wet but not where its going to drip down your neck- then I put my deep conditioner on, clip it in a ballerina bun, wrap saran wrap around it (helps lock in the heat) – sit under my blow dryer/running shoe contraption, then rinse with cool water. It is my favorite thing to do for my hair because it makes it so silky smooth and it feels so healthy afterwards. So here is how I “set up my dryer”
DISCLAIMER: I 100% realize this is the most ghetto thing ever and quite hilarious but ya know who is seriously gonna go buy a hair dryer? And I am definitely not holding my blow dryer up for 20 minutes haha so this is what works for now
Pretty easy right? And it works like a charm!! I use my NuMe blow dryer on low speed with high heat and I wait about 15-20 min! I also shampoo with my NuMe shampoo which I just got and love and then I always switch off with deep conditioners so my hair doesn’t get too used to it but right now I am also using my NuMe deep conditioner.. it will make your hair so silky whenever I use it and I am washing it out I can never tell if I still have conditioner in there or if it is really just that silky and it really does just make your hair a dream not to mention it is SO reasonably priced and lasts you forever!!
