Conditioner is the most underrated hair care product. It is often neglected or given secondary preference. But actually, it is a powerhouse product that needs a special mention! Your hair wouldn’t be as soft, smooth and nourished post a hair-wash had it not been conditioned. Yes, that’s the magic a conditioner does to your tresses.
While we all have different hair texture, it can sometimes get confusing as to how often you should condition your mane. To help you get over this confusion once and for all, we’ve put together a definitive guide.
Skipping conditioner for your hair type is a strict no-no! Thicker tresses may be healthy; however, they need extra hydration to remain moisturised. Therefore, you may need a little extra product to ensure that each and every strand is properly penetrated.
Even on days when you don’t have time for a proper hair-wash, skip shampoo but not conditioner. Just wet your hair and apply conditioner. This way, you’ll be able to maintain the health of your mane. You can try the Sunsilk Lusciously Thick & Long Conditioner which provides your hair with essential nutrients to give you long-lasting volume.
BB pro tip: Pamper your tresses using a deep-conditioner at least once a month. This will prevent damage, promote elasticity and add shine and lustre to your mane.
Thin hair is more prone to tangling and breakage. Instead of reaching for a comb to detangle every now and then (and losing out on a bunch of strands in the process), it’s best you condition your hair every other day.
Conditioning is a way gentler option as opposed to brushing and tugging at your strands. You could instead comb your hair while in the shower as you apply conditioner to your ends. Try a volumizing conditioner such as the TRESemmé Beauty Full Volume Conditioner which is infused with amino vitamins and adds bounce to your mane.
BB pro tip: Indulge in regular scalp massages. Doing so will stimulate blood flow into those hair follicles and add volume to your thin, fine locks.
Factors such as heat, pollution, dust and over-use of heat-styling tools could make your hair dry and limp. Dry hair screams lack of moisture, and that’s exactly why you need a moisturising conditioner to improve the health of your tresses.
Get your hands on the Dove Dryness Care Conditioner and condition every other day, your tresses need it. Other protective measures to keep dryness at bay is to include a conditioning cream, oil or leave-in spray to give your hair an added boost of moisture after a hair-wash.
BB pro tip: Treat your hair to a deep-conditioning hair mask at least once or twice a month. If not luxury treatments, simply make your own DIY hair mask at home using natural ingredients such as yoghurt, mayonnaise or egg from your kitchen shelf.
Colour-treated hair sure needs extra care and attention. You don’t want your strands to turn dry, dull and lifeless few months into the treatment.
During the hair colouring process, your hair comes in contact with chemicals that can strip it of its moisture and natural oils, making your locks dry and limp. It is, therefore, important that you deep-condition your hair one to two times a week along with the regular conditioning.
While you need to condition your hair regularly to keep your strands healthy and nourished, deep-conditioning will make your strands soft, smooth and at the same time, fight breakage. The TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Conditioner With Olive oil and Camellia oil is your safest bet for colour-treated hair.
BB pro tip: Avoid using a protein-based deep conditioner because too much protein can actually make your hair stiff and brittle.
