Some things work best in pairs – socks and shoes, milk and cookies, shampoo and conditioner. Yet many people skip conditioner altogether because their hair is naturally oily, which is a huge misconception. Every hair type needs a conditioner, especially now that you are stuck at home and there’s less sweat and grease in your hair. Washing your tresses frequently without conditioning can make it look dry, dull and damaged.

Instead you should use this time at home to treat your tresses to some deep conditioning to get a shiny, soft and manageable mane. Here are five ways in which conditioners can be a lifesaver during lockdown.


01. Shine on those video calls

Shine on those video calls

Conditioning your hair for two to three minutes can make it smooth and shiny. Most conditioners have the tendency to give instant and effective results, especially when it is from a known brand like TRESemme. Try using the TRESemme Smooth and Shine Conditioner. This particular conditioner has the goodness of Vitamin H, silk protein and argan oil, which leaves the hair smoother and shinier than before. Apply it on your hair after shampooing and watch how healthy and happy your locks appear on those endless video calls you have to make every day.


Weekend hair spa

Just because the salons are shut does not mean your hair doesn’t need pampering. You can still manage a weekend hair spa at your home using the simplest hair product; you guessed it right – conditioner! All you have to do is apply the TRESemme Spa Rejuvenation Conditioner evenly on wet hair and wrap your hair in a hot, damp towel. Relax while the conditioner (infused with hydrating marine minerals complex) works its magic. Rinse off after 10 to 15 minutes for spa-like results.


03. Damage repair

Damage repair

Conditioners are a saviour for anyone with damaged hair. If you use heat styling tools almost every day or your hair is damaged from swimming in chlorinated water, a conditioner can help address this problem. Look for one that is specifically formulated for damaged and dull hair. The Dove Hair Therapy Intense Repair Conditioner contains keratin actives that not only repairs damaged hair but also protects hair from future damage.


04. Manageable mane

Manageable mane

After cleansing, your hair tends to become rough and dry as the natural oils are stripped off. This can cause it to become entangled quite easily. The Sunsilk Nourishing Soft and Smooth Conditioner makes hair smooth thanks to it containing a fusion of five natural oils and egg ceramide complex, thereby preventing tangles. Applying conditioner regularly will make hair more manageable and easier to style.


05. Summer dandruff problem

Summer dandruff problem

When your strands are dry, the scalp works overtime to produce enough natural oils to compensate for the dryness. This often leads to greasy hair. During summer this problem gets worse and can lead to scalp infections as well as dandruff. Using the Dove Dandruff Care Conditioner along with its shampoo partner helps treat white flakes and itchy scalp, which is common in summer. The best part is, unlike most anti-dandruff solutions, Dove contains micro moisture serum that nourishes the hair while helping you get rid of dandruff.
