Do you deep condition your hair?

Do you deep condition your hair? If not, you could be missing out on some great hair benefits. Deep conditioning involves soaking the hair in a serum treatment for a minimum 5 minutes up to overnight and can be done every time you wash your hair or just once a week. It’s a flexible, tailorable way to restore your hair’s luster, shine, health, bounciness, and hydration.
Deep conditioning your hair is the latest trend to keep your hair shiny, hydrated, and healthy. It’s simple and tailorable to your needs. Deep conditioning methods range from in-shower conditioners to leave-in’s to overnight treatments. You can even make your products at home by utilizing stuff in your kitchen (products like coconut oil, butter, eggs, and avocado make great deep conditioning mask ingredients!). Deep conditioning should be done as needed. For some, this is 5 mins in the shower every time they wash their hair, for others, this is a leave-in treatment overnight once a week. Deep conditioning can be done as much or as little as you need.
Below are some benefits to deep conditioning your hair on the regular.
Damage prevention. Deep conditioning your hair regularly helps prevent split ends and keep hair healthy and moisturized. The only way to treat split ends is to prevent them from occurring. So don’t skip out on the deep conditioning! It’s a crucial part to your hair care routine.

Vitamin E for hair growth

Thanks to a recent study conducted by Tropical Life Sciences Research, we now have a new home remedy for minor hair loss.
According to the study, individuals in a double-blind study were given either vitamin E or a placebo to determine if vitamin E fights hair loss. The results showed that the individuals that were given vitamin E had a 35% increase in hair growth.
How does it work?
Vitamin E is an antioxidant. That means it has healing properties. Vitamin E can help prevent tissue damage as well as hair follicle damage. This in turn promotes healthy hair growth.
When vitamin E is applied to the scalp, it gets to work reducing inflammation and repairing tissue damage deep in the follicles.
How do you use it?
Vitamin E is sold in capsule form at most drug stores. These capsules are soft and can be punctured with a pin to release the gel from the inside.
This gel is safe to use as a topical skin or scalp treatment. It can be combined with olive, coconut, grapeseed, sesame, or carrot oil. Once the gel and oil are combined, apply the oil mixture onto clean hair. Massage into the scalp to promote blood circulation for added benefits.
To see desired results, you should apply vitamin E to your hair at least 2-3 times a week. You can also take the vitamin in its original capsule form to promote healthy skin and hair from the inside.
If you have noticed very minor hair loss, thinning, or just want to improve the texture and health of your hair, using vitamin E may help. Be sure to rule out any underlying medical conditions that may be causing the change in your hair.
If you have more aggressive hair loss, it is unlikely using vitamin E will show any real benefit. Once hair loss begins, it almost always continues to progress and worsen as time goes on. Therefore, if you wish to save your hair, it’s very important you begin preventative measures now.
