3 Reasons You Need to Start Heating Up Your Conditioner

As the weather gets colder, you should kick some heat into your beauty routine! Our friends at Mane Addicts just outlined the hack that'll keep your locks looking luscious during the cooler seasons.

Hair conditioning is probably the most essential part of your hair care routine. It's literally the remedy for all hair problems. While a quick three-minute soak and rinse may leave our hair feeling soft and more manageable, we can always do a little extra for longer-lasting results. Let's talk heated deep conditioners.

Benefits

Besides feeling superluxurious, heated deep conditioners strengthen your strands and enhance the way the rest of your products work. See some of the awesome benefits below:

  1. Opens Cuticles
    If you have tightly shut hair cuticles (or low porosity) heat will open them right up! The heat allows your conditioner to deeply penetrate your strands.
  2. Moisture Restoration
    Since your hair is soaking up all the goodies, moisture is restored inside out. Talk about soft hair for days!
  3. Enhanced Conditioner
    Get the full effect of your conditioner by adding some heat! A proper heated conditioner takes time — we're talking 15-30 minutes. The heat prepares the hair for absorption, therefore allowing the product or mixture to work its magic. The time length allows your tresses to marinate in all of this goodness.

Ways to Use Heat

Heated conditioners can be done with . . .

  • Hooded dryer
  • Bonnet dryer
  • Heated cap
  • Steamer
  • In-shower: If you're short on time, you can apply your conditioner to your (wet or dry) hair, hop in a hot shower, and rinse the conditioner out when you are done.
  • Hot towel: Put a plastic cap over your conditioned hair and wrap a hot (actually, more warm than hot. Don't burn yourself!) towel around your head.
