We can not stress enough on the importance of using a hair conditioner to keep your hair smooth, tangle and frizz free. But did you know that your hair conditioner does more than just condition your hair?
If you are the kind that tends to move on to a new conditioner without entirely finishing the old one, we are here to your rescue, as there are a lot of things that you can do with leftover conditioner. From quick beauty fixes to little tricks that make life easier, hair conditioner is an all-round wonder product.
Here are 5 stellar ways you can use your favourite conditioner other than just on your hair...
Very evidently, hair conditioners are loaded with moisturising and nourishing properties, and hence come to your rescue when you have to groom your nails too. All you have to do to replace your cuticle oil treatment is to massage a tiny bit of conditioner into your cuticles, leave it there for 5 minutes and rinse off. Welcome, soft, groomed cuticles.
As a body scrub
Another great use for a conditioner is to use as a DIY body scrub. The simplest way to do this is to mix some conditioner with a few tablespoons of coarse brown sugar. Add some fresh lemon juice to this mixture and mix well. The brown sugar exfoliates your legs and the conditioner works as a moisturising agent.
Heals cracked heels
If you are someone who constantly suffers from cracked heels, a bottle of conditioner is your best friend. The moisturising properties of the conditioner provide the necessary nourishment to your heels to make them soft and crack free. You can massage a pea-sized amount of conditioner on the affected areas each night before bed, cover it up with a pair of socks so that it is absorbed into the skin to make your legs feel softer than before.
As a makeup remover
Going to bed without erasing the day’s makeup is the biggest skin care sin you can commit. But if you have run out of makeup remover, simply reach for your bottle of conditioner and use it as a makeup remover. Simply massage some conditioner on your face and wipe it off using a swab of cotton to remove makeup. Follow this by rinsing your skin with hot water to eliminate the excess oils.
As a leave-in hair conditioner
Your hair conditioner is the easiest way to make your own DIY leave-in hair conditioner with. You can do so by adding a tablespoon of conditioner, a few tablespoons of warm water, along with some drops of lemon juice and essential oil for scent together in spray bottle. Sprtiz this on to your hair after each hair wash and see your hair look shiny and moisturised.
