Quick Deep Conditioning Treatments for When You Ain't Got Time

When working from home first became the norm back in March 2020, the vast majority of us Black girls probably assumed we would have all the time in the world to take care of our hair in-between meetings and Zoom calls — wrong.

Turns out, instead of giving us more time for ourselves, working through a pandemic has actually made a lot of us busier. Plus, with the lines between work life and home life constantly becoming more blurred, our previous designated wash day from the "before" days has likely turned into whenever you have time.

But regardless of how busy we may be, one aspect of haircare we can't skimp out on is deep conditioning — we just need a few options that work quickly.

That's why we rounded up six deep conditioning treatments, with options for every texture, that will give you ultra-soft, smooth curls and coils in around 10 minutes.

Our picks, ahead.
