Deep conditioning is great for your hair, especially if you have thick or curly hair. It hydrates to reduce frizz and split ends. You can use any deep-conditioning product that you want, including Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque, and the process is generally the same.

Step 1

Begin by applying the Shea Moisture deep conditioner to your dry hair in sections. The thicker your hair, the more product you should apply.

Step 2

Apply the deep conditioner with your hands and finger-comb it through your hair to remove any knots or tangles.

Step 3

Gather all your hair on top of your head and cover with a plastic head wrap.

Step 4

Leave the deep conditioner on for as long as you want -- at least 30 minutes. Many women sleep with the deep-conditioning treatment in for optimal hydration.

Step 5

Hop in the shower. Take off the plastic wrap and wash out the deep conditioner. Shampoo and condition your hair as usual.
