A deep conditioner is to the hair what a mask is to the face. It looks like a luxury or add-on, but it’s actually sometimes necessary. We put our strands through a lot. Some of it is intentional, like a dye job or relaxer. And sometimes, it’s simply a by-product of our environment, such as air pollution and secondhand smoke. But regardless of the source, subjecting our hair to the extra stress means that it deserves a little extra love, too.
