A random query but is it okay to leave intensive conditioner on over night? My hair is horrid atm, really brittle and yuck. Thankfully being cut on Friday as it needs sorting out. I need to cope with it in the interim and it needs a good condition.

Any ideas if okay? I can't see why not. Thanks.

I wouldn't. You might sort of scorch your scalp. <vague>

Yes it will be fine, I've done it many times before when I used to have dyed hair. May take a bit more rinsing tomorrow morning as it kind of dries in. Another good thing to put on and leave on overnight is coconut oil

Aha, thank you. I have coconut oil. That might be safer. Good point!

Yes, it'll be fine, probably do it good.

I don't know but I read an interview with Jerry Hall who swore by liberally dousing her hair in olive oil and wrapping it in cling film for as long as possible 😊

Thank you wise Myers. flowers. My hair is most grateful. Good point re clingfilm.

I do this about once a fortnight.

Slather it with intensive conditioner, wrap in a plastic bag with a turban thingy over the top (I do it when dh is working away!). My hair (long and curly) loves it.

Yes, definitely you can. I put either intensive conditioner (John Frieda or Kerestase) or coconut oil on my hair before bed, cover with a hair net, put on an extra pillow case and rinse or wash out in the morning. I do this every week or two and it leaves my hair fabulously soft & silky smooth.
