Whether it's a perm, straightened hair, or a trendy balayage — we have all subjected our hair to one chemical treatment or the other at some point in our lives. Let’s be honest, the temptations are many, and it’s easy to fall for the latest fad. But no matter what your treatment of choice may be, it's important to follow a solid hair-care routine to maintain healthy-looking strands. Using the wrong products can leave you with lacklustre, damaged locks that tangle easily! And the one thing we're turning to revive our locks is conditioner. They smoothen your hair cuticles and prevent moisture loss, thereby making your hair smooth, shiny, frizz-free and easy to detangle. Read on to see our top picks of conditioners to take care of chemically treated hair…
- 01. For coloured hair: TRESemmé Pro Protect Sulphate Free Conditioner
- 02. For maintaining straightened hair: TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner
- 03. For heat damaged hair: Dove Intense Repair Conditioner
01. For coloured hair: TRESemmé Pro Protect Sulphate Free Conditioner
Fun fact: if you have dyed hair, sulphate-free conditioners are better for you because they won't strip away the colour or dry out your hair. Opt for the TRESemmé Pro Protect Sulphate Free Conditioner for coloured hair since it's infused with the goodness of Moroccan argan oil and will provide a long-lasting vibrancy to your hair colour. By retaining moisture, the shine enhancing conditioner is about to be your saviour when it comes to salvaging dyed hair.
It also comes with a no sulphate, no paraben formula and is used by New York stylists. Trust me when we say this, but this conditioner can give the expensive conditioners prescribed by salons a run for their money!
02. For maintaining straightened hair: TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner
Whether you want to manage your chemically-straightened tresses or just want to feel something other than frizz, the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner has got your back. With no added sulphates and parabens, and infused with keratin and argan oil, this conditioner nourishes and strengthens the hair strand that may have been destroyed due to chemical treatments to give you straighter, smoother and shinier hair.
03. For heat damaged hair: Dove Intense Repair Conditioner
Sometimes, you've got to call a spade a spade and term chemically 'treated' hair as chemically 'damaged hair.' If your four-month-old perm has left you with dull, unmanageable straw-like looking hair that breaks easily, and your dip-dye strands have all but fallen down, you need to use the Dove Intense Repair Conditioner for some instant revival. Formulated with keratin actives, the conditioner controls external signs of dryness while nourishing strands to help them look their best. Say goodbye to tangled, dry, brittle ends, and hello to smooth, detangled hair.
