Tip 2: Find a Conditioning Treatment
Now that you've chopped your locks, look for a conditioning treatment to soften the hair to its natural texture. "Be sure to use it on dry hair," recommends Lopez. "Hair is porous, therefore wet hair cannot receive all the benefits of a deep conditioner."
Apply your conditioning treatment on dry hair and allow it to sit for at least 15 minutes. Then, rinse, shampoo, and condition as usual.
