4 Steps to Conditioning Your Hair for Maximum Results
Step 1: Choose the right conditioner
Just like one glove doesn’t fit all sizes, one conditioner is not right for all hair types. You need to identify just what your hair needs and then use it regularly to see the desired results. For example, for straight hair you can use Sunsilk’s Perfect Straight Conditioner. or Sunsilk Dream Soft & Smooth for curly hair to add extra moisture.
Step 2: Know where to start
A common mistake made with the hair conditioner is, where you apply it. Wrong application can cause the scalp to get oily very quickly, making you actually disbelieve the quality a conditioner can add to your hair and eventually discontinuing its use. The ends of your hair need the nourishment that a conditioner provides instead of your scalp, so start from the end tips and work your way up along the length. Do not apply conditioner on the scalp at all!
Step 3: Leave it on for 2-3 minutes
Applying a conditioner is not enough, what is more important is how long you leave it on for, so that it can work for your hair. Usually after you shampoo your hair, it’s soaking wet, which makes it hard for the conditioner to penetrate into it. Instead, squeeze all the excess water out of your hair before you begin applying the conditioner, and then leave it on for about 2-3 minutes, to see the conditioner work its magic in your hair.
Step 4: Be consistent
Just like a diet or exercise, results will only show if you do something consistently. So, if you want to have smooth tangle-free hair, applying a conditioner sparingly is not enough. You need to condition your hair with every wash. It is only after regular usage that you will see the benefits of using a conditioner, and see the result you have been longing for – silky smooth and tangle-free hair.
