Can you believe we’ve been talking about how to use conditioner for nearly two decades? When Pantene introduced its 10-minute miracle treatment in 1998, it was revolutionary. Now, we’re just as obsessed with our conditioners as ever—and for good reason! Conditioners are crucial to maintaining your hair’s health and helping keep it strong, smooth, and soft. But why? And what makes them different from other hair care products? In this article, we’ll explore how conditioning works and why you should be using it on your locks every time you shower.
Stop Mysterious Breakage
Every day, your hair is exposed to various environmental factors that can cause it to break. These include:
- Heat styling tools like blow dryers and curling irons.
- Brushing or combing your hair when it’s wet.
- The sun. (This is especially a problem if you live in a sunny area.)
In order to prevent these things from happening and causing breakage, there are some things you can do:
Make Tresses More Manageable
Conditioner can help you fight frizz, make hair look smoother, and feel more manageable. If you struggle with tangles and knots in the shower, conditioner will make it easier to comb through your hair without causing breakage or split ends.
Conditioner also helps protect against damage from heat styling tools like curling irons and flat irons by coating strands of hair with a protective layer that acts as a barrier between the high temperatures and the strands themselves. Over time, this can reduce the appearance of split ends by making sure they don’t happen in the first place!
Help with Hair Growth
Conditioners are often overlooked for their ability to help with hair growth. In fact, conditioner is one of the best ways to keep your hair looking healthy and prevent it from breaking off at the roots.
Conditioners can also make your hair softer and more manageable, which can be especially helpful if you have curly or coarse strands that are prone to tangles. Many people who use conditioner regularly find that they need fewer haircuts because their ends don’t split as easily thanks to the extra hydration provided by conditioner use!
Keep Color Vibrant
In order to keep your color looking vibrant, you’ll want to use a conditioner that is specifically designed for color-treated hair. These products will help bring out the best in your hue and prevent it from fading prematurely. This can be done by using the conditioner after shampooing or by using it as part of your daily conditioning routine (which we recommend).
A great way to make sure you’re getting proper hydration is by adding a leave-in treatment into your regimen. It will give you nourishment without weighing down your locks like other products might. You can also use a detangler before brushing or running fingers through wet strands with fingers wet with water for extra protection against heat damage
By conditioning the hair, it maintains health and provides a better foundation to style the hair.
Conditioner is an important part of a hair care routine, especially if you have colored or bleached hair. It helps to maintain the health and strength of your hair while also providing a better foundation for styling.
Conditioner works by penetrating deep into the cortex (the middle layer) of each strand, coating it with emollients that add moisture back into your hair. This helps keep it looking smooth and shiny instead of frizzy, wiry, or dull—and it can help protect against breakage during styling too.
We’ve highlighted the main reasons that you should use conditioner, whether it’s to prevent breakage or keep color vibrant. But most importantly, we want you to know how much we care about your hair! If you still have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
