No Fuss Overnight Deep Condition

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

Based on my current wash and go frequency (I generally redo my wash and go every 3 days or so), I should have done my hair yesterday so that I would be enjoying second day hair today. However, sometimes life gets in the way and I don't get around to doing my hair on an established schedule. So naturally today ended up being a puff day because I needed to look presentable for work and I still wasn't really in the mood to completely redo my hair. Of course, when I took down my puff after work today, the middle of my hair was super compacted and felt really dry because water or any form of moisture hadn't touched it in a few days. Even though I definitely plan on re-doing my wash and go in the morning, I figured this would be the perfect time to quickly prep my hair for a no fuss overnight deep condition (check out my deep conditioning cheat sheet for more information on how I approach deep conditioning).

For this overnight DC - I first generously spritzed my hair with water and then used my trusty Curl Junkie Curl rehab conditioner, focusing the product on the driest areas in the middle of my head where the puff felt the most dry and compacted, as well as on the ends. The consistency of the Curl Rehab treatment (gardenia-coconut scent, pictured below) is on the thicker side and very creamy. As I applied the conditioner, I finger-parted my hair down the center into two large sections and then put each section into a messy bun with my mini scrunchies.


I then covered the hair with a conditioning cap (and then topped it off with my loc soc) to lock in the moisture and allow my body heat to deep condition my hair as I sleep. As a result of this no fuss overnight deep condition, I expect my hair to be pretty soft and easy to finger-detangle when I redo my wash and go in the shower the next morning!

  1. I may have missed this in past posts but how do you do your WnGs in the morning? Do you diffuse to take some of the wetness out?

    1. Hey Shawnystheone! It depends. Most of the time, the "praying hands" technique I use to apply the product (in conjunction with shaking and separating the curls at the end) allows me to gently squeeze/shake out excess wetness as I go along. Usually when Im done doing the WNG my hair is still pretty wet, but not dripping wet. But sometimes if my hair is still dripping wet after product application, I will bend over forward and flip my hair upside down and then take a microfiber towel and gently blot the drippies on the ends (kind of as if I am lightly scrunching the hair), being extra careful not to disturb the curls/coils that formed in the WNG. If I can figure out the best way to properly illustrate this process, I may do a blog post or a video in the future. Hope this helps!

  2. Thank you, it does! I will try it that way in a few weeks to see if it helps. I usually style at night, then ponytail when its almost dry, take down and spritz. It saves me some time in the morning but I would love to try a fresh WnG in the morning
