Use the Suave “conditioner” and not the shampoo for overnight. The Suave natural Rosemary mint conditioner and the Aussie is what I was using in this video.
If you are not seeing growth it isn’t because your hair isn’t growing is simple, you are not retaining length or in other words your breaking off the ends of your hair. Learn your hair and what works best for you.
Baggy Method/ Green House Effect
Works well if one is short on (awake) time.
Leaves hair really soft next morning.
Great at bringing back moisture to hard strands, or hair with too much protein.
Has a similar effect as the GHE method (pretty much the same thing except there is a conditioner in your hair), thus acting as a growth aid.
Can cause a moisture overload if hair is already super moisturized. This can lead to mushy, breaking hair.
Unnecessary as most products have an optimum absorbtion time of 30 mins
Itchy scalp afterwards (in some people)
You may catch a cold from the constant moisture on your head
If you decide to proceed with overnight deep conditioning sessions, try these few tips to make your experience more pleasant.
If it makes your hair feel mushy, use a conditioner with a little protein like ORS replenishing conditioner or an oil with an affinity for protein like coconut oil. Also start with dry hair which has less moisture thus, preventing a moisture overload.
If your scalp is itchy, try adding an essential oil to the mix like tea tree or peppermint. Also don’t apply the conditioner to your scalp, use it on your hair only, and instead, opt for a natural oil on your scalp.
Do you make deep conditioning an all nighter or do you prefer a quickie?
