How to apply homemade hair conditioners
Traditionally hair conditioner must be applied in wet hair after shampoo i.e washing your hair clean with a shampoo. It is not necessary to condition your hair after each hair wash but it is better to do so as hair conditioners gives your hair soft, silky and shiny look. For regular quick hair conditioning, apply your hair conditioner to washed hair and let is remain for 3-5 mins and then rinse it of with water.
The other way to condition your hair is deep conditioning. Apply your store bought or homemade deep hair conditioner to washed wet hair. After application you will now want the conditioner to sit on your hair for sometime so that it goes deep and nourish your hair. Take a shower cap and wear it such that your entire head is covered so that the conditioner does not dry up quickly. Incase you do not have a shower cap you can cover your hair with warm towel also.
Now sit and relax for 1-2 hrs and then rinse your hair.
