What is a deep conditioner? Curls are naturally prone to dryness. Deep conditioners help restore moisture, elasticity, strengthen curls and help minimize damage. When selecting your deep conditioner, avoid any containing alcohol, artificial color, mineral oils or petroleum.
Why should you deep condition? If your curls are brittle, chemical or color treated, using a deep conditioner can help.
