Just when you think you have the perfect hair routine down packed someone always throw salt in the game. There seems to always be a “newer” more “improved” method that supposedly is healthier for your strands than the last thing you tried.
Well for once we’re making it easier, and giving you an old school method that has simply come back with a new name. We’re bringing back a super effective cap conditioning method that will instantly replenish moisture to dry and damaged hair. While many of us probably refer to this method as deep conditioning , “the streets” have given it a new government name – baggying.
Baggying takes deep conditioning to the next level, using an overnight green-house type effect on your hair. In short, replenishment for your hair is created by covering your strands with a processing cap and hair scarf for 8-12 hours, helping to lock in moisture and non-damaging heat.
Whether your hair is chemically processed or in its natural state, learn a throwback way of correctly adding life back into your strands with this easy step-by-step baggying guide.
Step 1: Start with clean dry hair and add a small amount of conditioner or moisturizer to your strands (a little goes along way). Try AVLON’S KeraCare Butter Cream Everyday Moisturizer, 8oz, $15, avlon.com
Step 2: Comb product from scalp to ends for even distribution, and cover with a plastic processing cap.
Step 3: Secure the processing cap with a elastic headband and then cover the cap with a head scarf or bonnet. Let sit overnight.
Step 4: Next morning, remove cap and style as usual. If hair is still moist let air dry or blow-dry on low heat.
We recommend baggying twice a week. But remember this is a restorative method so once you notice your hair returning to a healthy state it’s best to stop until needed again. Believe it or not, too much moisture can cause breakage to your strands.Related Posts
