Posted on May 31 2018
Do you ever wonder whether the conditioner you are using is the best one for your hair? With so many to choose from, using the wrong one won't leave your feeling and looking its best. We're here to help you make an informed decision on which type is right for you.
Conditioner helps restore moisture as well closing and sealing the cuticle layer of your hair after washing. It also helps reduces tangling and frizz, increases shine, and helps make your hair more manageable. Conditioner is important for your hair, but there are so many to choose from. You won’t find a conditioner that will work well on all hair types. Choose a shampoo based on your needs and scalp and a conditioner based more on the ends of your hair. Here's a brief rundown on conditioners to suit the most common hair types.
People with oily, flat hair, read this...
If you are used to having oily hair, you may tend to skip conditioner all together, however some girls find that not using conditioner makes your hair feel even worse. The right conditioner can actually help with an oily hair situation. Avoid conditioners that are hydrating and moisturising as they tend to have oils and can cause your hair to become heavy and appear limp. Keep your eye out for volumizing, strengthening, light and balancing conditioners - these will tend to be less moisturising, therefore not producing too much sebum. When using conditioner keep the product away from your scalp. Only apply to the ends and be sure to spend extra time rinsing. We love the DeLorenzo Control Conditioner for oily scalp and hair.
