Deep Conditioning with ORS Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner

Spring has been outrageously unpredictable here in Colorado with snow coming at us only a few days before Memorial Day.  The nerve!  Thanks to all of the back and forth in temperature and my kids being sick, I fell ill recently and hadn’t felt up to doing my hair.  Well, of course I was styling my hair but I hadn’t given it that much needed TLC it deserved.  I knew that I was due for a deep conditioning treatment so I figured I would grab a couple of those conditioning packets while at the grocery store.  I opted to buy the larger bottle since we’re heading into swimming season soon and my hair will need it then too.  The product I’m talking about is the ORS Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner.

About 80% of the time  I rock curly styles because of how time consuming it is to straighten my hair.  When I finally do go straight, I like to go as a long as possible until I wash it again because I don’t want to waste all of that effort.  Right after I straighten my hair it is very lightweight and flowy which I love.  In my last post I discussed how to achieve those results.  After about a week or so, my hair starts to feel heavy.  That’s when I like to change things up a bit with a braid out for something different.  Unfortunately, it took a long time for me to find what worked for a successful braid out on straight natural hair.
