Alphabet Challenge: Deep Conditioning

First attempt at the Alphabet Challenge.


This week’s alphabet is “D”, and I decided to go with deep conditioning, one of the products that I struggled with for the most part of my adolescence. I inherited my mother’s wavy hair that is both fine and dry. You would think that it would be any better now that I am here in the dry and now, blazing hot Texas, but no, they were just as bad as it was back home in Malaysia.

The drugstore products hasn’t helped me since I’ve been here. I’ve tried several deep conditioning / mask products from various brands, such as  TRESsemme Protein Renewal Creme, TRESsemme Rejuvenating Mud Mask  and Garnier Fructis Fortifying Deep Conditioner. I was on the verge of giving up drugstore brand until I found Aussie – a so called Australian brand.

Despite chopping my hair off, the back of my hair is constantly dehydrated. Ranked #4 on Total Beauty, the 3 minute miracle is supersedes Redken, Origins and Bed Head at $3. What more can you ask for?


Unfortunately for me, three minute is not sufficient to condition my hair. Instead, I would soak my hair for about 90 minutes before I rinse the product off. Personally, it doesn’t bother me as I have my shower cap on the entire time. I put about a handful of the product on my hair each time, and each bottle lasts me for a good ten washes.

90 minutes may seem time consuming for most, but a lot can be done while you have your shower cap on. I can usually do two loads of laundry, paint my nails, and do a facial all at the same time. Think of this self-pampering time you can get in less than $7 every week!

In order to keep my hair hydrated at all times, I will have to deep condition my hair about once every five days. That’s $3 for every two months. Where can you possibly find a deal like that?
