01. Chemically treated hair requires special care
If you think you can bleach your hair and get away with using just any regular old conditioner, you're dead wrong. Chemically treated and coloured hair requires special care since it may be more damaged and dry. And to take care of them properly, you need to turn to a sulphate-free conditioner. Using a sulphate-free conditioner can help preserve the colour and ensure your hair doesn't turn dull and dehydrated. The TRESemmé Pro Protect Sulphate Free Conditioner can help with this. This sulphate-free formula contains Moroccan argan oil that will provide gentle care to chemically treated hair and lend it a healthy shine.
02. Regular conditioners can act as leave-ins
If you've been on the hunt for a solid leave-in conditioner but have come up short, your trusty hair conditioner can help. Opt for Love Beauty & Planet Natural Argan Oil & Lavender No Frizz Conditioner if you’re looking for that extra touch of moisture and shine. The conditioner is free of harmful chemicals, parabens, silicones and dyes and is vegan and PETA certified cruelty-free. Mix a tablespoon of the conditioner with a few tablespoons of warm water. Add in a couple of drops of lemon juice, and shake it well in a spray bottle. Spray it onto your hair post-wash, and you'll notice a huge difference in your tresses since the conditioner will make your hair look smooth, shiny, and frizz-free. Plus, the conditioner will keep your tresses smelling oh-so-good, thanks to the hand-cut French lavenders in it. Total win!
03. Using a conditioner can 'shave' you
#SorryNotSorry for the pun. But since more and more women are turning to shaving, did you know that you can swap out a shaving cream with a hair conditioner? Conditioners can coat the hair on the body thoroughly and give you a smoother, softer shave, making your legs look like they belong in a razor commercial. Also, just having personally tested this hack, I can attest to this — and you should try it too!
04. Detangling your hair became a whole lot easier
Fun fact: If your knots are driving you nuts, and the hair fall that accompanies detangling isn't making life easier, combing your hair with conditioner can help. After your wash, simply apply conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Take a wide-toothed comb and comb your hair. This will help detangle your hair in a breeze. If your hair is susceptible to breakage, use the Dove Hair Fall Rescue Conditioner since it instantly detangles wet hair and improves manageability while smoothing out the hair too.
