Do you condition your hair after you shampoo it? No? Let us tell you this is the most common hair care mistake!


Conditioning your hair is a very important step in hair care. In fact, it's one of the most basic ones! This is key for making it soft, smooth and tangle free. 

A conditioner helps keep each strand of your hair healthy, adding to your hair’s natural shine and moisture! No matter what your hair type is – you need to condition it. And condition it right. And how to use conditioner you may ask? Here we have put together some steps that you should follow, if you want happy healthy hair on your head! 


• Choose the right conditioner: Once you have identified your hair type it is important that you use a conditioner meant for your hair conditions in order to get maximum results.

Choose one of Sunsilk’s range of conditioners that have been created for every hair type.


• Start from the tips of your hair: The lower end of your hair has been growing out for a while and is older than the hair right at your roots therefore it needs special attention.  

It is a common mistake to apply conditioner on the scalp, just like you apply the shampoo.

But it is in fact the ends of your hair that require regular moisturising to stay healthy, a portion of the hair that is often ignored.


•Your scalp does not need conditioner: The primary function of the hair conditioner is to coat the hair to make hair cuticles lie down. Colouring and heat styling lift the scales on your cuticles, taking away sheen and smoothness. Therefore the conditioner acts to repair the damage caused and repair your hair with essential moisturisers. Your scalp doesn’t need that.


• Time it right: After you shampoo and rinse your hair, it is usually dripping wet. The conditioner will not stay on well at this stage. So try drying it gently with a towel after you rinse out the shampoo and then apply the conditioner for maximum results. 


• Apply it right: Using your fingers work the conditioner into your hair ends. You can even use a comb to do the job thoroughly. Once you have done this wait for at least 3 minutes before you rinse out the conditioner.
