It is a question of hydrating or fortifying the hair. The deep care being greasy, it is better to do it before shampooing.
The shampoo allows you to wash, remove excess material and lighten the hair. We make sure to use a shampoo that does not go against the effects of deep care.

What deep care after a protective hairstyle?
Deep care is a long-lasting moisturizing or repairing treatment. Concretely, it acts in depth unlike ordinary care which forms a protective barrier on the surface. There are three different treatments:
#1. Deep moisturizing care
If you have dry, rough, brittle and difficult to style hair, it is better to opt for a moisturizer. The latter compensates for the lack of hydration by nourishing the hair in depth. To seal in hydration, it is advisable to perform regular leave-in treatments or apply brilliantine.
#2. Deep protein care
When the hair is damaged following a change of season, a change of protective hairstyle or overuse of the straightening iron or the hair dryer, it is recommended to apply a protein treatment. The latter repairs the cracks in the hair fiber and strengthens it by filling in the lack of keratin. Be careful, however, not to abuse this treatment, at the risk of drying out the hair.
#3. The nourishing oil bath
It nourishes the hair but does not hydrate it. Each oil has its specificity. For textured hair, it is better to capitalize on vegetable oils such as papaya oil for example.
