Overnight conditioning

Therese1Therese1 Posts: 2,524Registered Users Curl Virtuoso
Does anyone find that overnight conditioning (with a shower cap on) is good enough for a deep condition, or does heat have to be used? Is there enough body heat generated that this works OK? I'm trying to find the easiest way possible to DC.

    Don't DC overnight. It's damaging to the structure of the hair. Anything over 30 minutes (at most) is overdoing it. Basically, keratin can only hold water for so long before it starts to break down, and that's without all the other ingredients in a DC.

    I guess it depends on your hair. My hair is medium-coarse and low porosity, so deep conditioning overnight is fine for my hair. I also leave in rinse out conditioner daily without any negative effects.

    My hair is also medium coarse and low porosity and DC overnight definitely works for me. I don't do it all the time, but when I do, my hair stays moisturized for days.

    I do this with a DC that has no protein in it and my hair loves it! My hair actually started to become more moisturized longer when I did this. The moisture levels are high enough where I don't need to do it that much anymore, but when I have time I usually try to do it or at least leave it in for 30 minutes.
