Hey guys, I just wanted to know if you can condition your hair before or after deep conditioning. Since I'm going to be washing and deep conditioning my hair once or twice a week once I unbraid my hair, I'm wondering where my regular conditioner will come in.

sounds like a waste of product unless you are asking about co-washing?  if you are talking about co-washing then you would use the regular conditioner to wash your hair and deep condition before or after. deep conditioning once a week is more than enough.

i don't use a regular conditioner (just putting it on my hair for a few minutes) before doing a dc.  i will shampoo and then do the dc.  i only use regular conditioner in addition to dc if i detangle before my dc (and the dc has no slip).  i use my regular conditioner as a detangler.

now that i am doing the tightly curly method, i haven't dc'ed yet....i just use a heavy regular conditioner and leave it on...if i use a dc, i would slightly rinse it and leave that in too.  no, regular conditioner....i would only use it to detangle (if the dc has no slip).

I use my normal conditioners to co-wash and as ingredients for my homemade leave-in, deep conditioners, and treatments. the only time I'll condition my hair quickly is if I'm in a rush or something, and that's rare.

use regular conditioner (eg. Vo5)  to co-wash before deep conditioning with another conditioner that's meant for deep conditioning (e.g Motion CPR)

I do this as well. This method is excellent if you have color treated/bleached hair.

Deep conditioners are meant to be used without a regular conditioner. HOWEVER, my hair is very dried out, and the only way to get it as soft as possible is to do BOTH each time I wash (every 2-3 days). For people with healthier hair, you should only need DC without conditioner once a week. But if you've got a lot of damage to repair, you may want to try both and see the difference it makes.

Since my hair is dried out, but likely a little protein deprived as well, I sometimes like to mix conditioners together. Sometimes I'll use two deep conditioners together, or, my favourite, is Herbal Essences Hello Hydration and Honey I'm Strong. They compliment each other very well, and give me the perfect amount of protein and moisture that I need.

Everything works different for everyone, so it doesn't hurt to try something and see the results. Sometimes if I'm running low on conditioner I'll just mix it in with the DC and wash it out together. Remember, you'll get the best results if you rinse with cold water!
