What is Deep Moisture Method?

Deep Moisture Method (DMM) is a process of retaining moisture in hair.  This method involves dampening one's hair with water or mixture of water and conditioner, and applying a deep conditioner thoroughly to hair.  Lastly, sealing in the moisture with shea butter or castor oil. Finally, putting the hair in a protective style.

This method has been spreading wildly in the natural hair community. One person testifies to going from collar bone length to armpit length in 2 months, while another went from armpit length to mid back length also in 2 months.

I have never attempted this method before Have you?


  1. No I can not say I've tried this method in fact this is the first I've actually heard of it. As for myself I'm not really looking to gain much length just wanting to keeo my strands healthy. I Like my hair on the shorter side.

    I would also likely be concerned about using a DC and leaving it in my hair, thinking it may leave a bit of buildup. I normally just try at sticking to using a product as they are directed to be used. All though there are some DC's that say it can also be used as a leave in.

    I don't know I'm on this fence with this one. I can't wait to learn more about this method. Thanks for sharing for those who are new to this method like myself. Take care and enjoy your day.

    1. I always look forward to reading your comments. I love your train of thought. I know that Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque can be left in as a styler. I am also very leery about leaving in products that are not meant to be left in.
