When it comes to hair cleaning, it is shampoo that catches much more attention than conditioner. Actually, I am quite confused by this situation. As far as I am concerned, although shampoo do play an important role on hair cleaning, there is no reason for us to deny the necessity of using conditioner. For me, it is nice to have a great shampoo, but in the case of limited budget, I would prefer to have a great conditioner and an ordinary shampoo.
In our daily life, a large number of women may neglect using a conditioner after shampooing our hair. In their opinion, it is unnecessary for them to apply conditioner to their hair because their hair is too short, too fine a texture, too greasy or the hair doesn’t tangle enough. In fact, this is such a wrong opinion. Conditioner is supposed to be used by everybody. You just can not image how important conditioner is.
It can not be denied that using a wrong conditioner can weigh your hair down and make it greasy (or greasier). However, this problem can be solved by opting for appropriate conditioner. Totally repudiating the importance of using conditioner because of this stupid idea is not a reasonable action. Conditioner do bring numeral benefits to your hair, which will be totally missed out on if you just skip the conditioner all together.
After having your hair colored, you will suffer the consequence that the hair color will fade quickly or the hair will get dried out, brassy and messy easily. You may wonder why this situation will happen. After digging into the functions of shampoo, you will know the answer. Shampoo is designed to remove oils, dirt and other nasty things that build up on your hair off your hair. While you are shampooing your hair, the cuticle of your hair will rough up a bit and then your hair will tangle a little. Roughed up cuticle is blamed for tangling the hair. You can imagine the cuticle of each hair strand as the shingles on a rooftop. Generally speaking, all those shingles should be smoothed down and pointing in the same direction. After a tornado running across,part of the shingles may curl up or even break off, leaving the rooftop in chaos. If the hair cuticle is roughed up to a great extent, the roughed up will begin to stick and twist together. After that, the total image of the hair will just look like the messy rooftop.
As conditioner can help balance the PH level of your hair, it can assist in ensuring that the cuticle is smoothed down to the surface, preventing tangles and making tangles to release easily. Besides, keeping the PH level does good to locking in the hair color, as well as maintaining the moisture balance of your hair. With smooth cuticle, the hair is sure to look healthier, shinier and have a better body and bounce.
In addition to the benefits above, many conditioners come with extra benefits, including UV protection and offing essential nutrients which are essential for keeping the health of the hair and scalp. With the aid of conditioner,your hair can reduce frizz, define curl or increase volume easily, which should be the base of hair beauty.
As I have mentioned before, the reason why many women skip the conditioner is that it is just too heavy and greasy for their hair. Actually, most of the time, most women do not realize that it is all because of their using inappropriate conditioner. It is all known that different kinds of hair require different hair products. No matter how great a conditioner is, it can not achieve its best result unless it is in its right place and proceeded properly. It is essential to find te right conditioner, use it correctly and rinse it very well to get the most benefit out of the product. Rinsing the hair improperly when using conditioner is the number one issue reducing the product effect. To smooth the cuticle down, it is necessary to keep a solid 30-60 second rinse in warm water.
In case that you feel like your conditioner is too heavy, you can try a lighter moisture conditioner and make sure to rinse it well to get its most benefits. If you are unsure of your right conditioner for your unique hair type, it is recommended that you talk with your stylist about it and ask for a piece of better advice.
