Our next question is: do you take the time to condition your hair after you shampoo it? If not, let us inform you it is the biggest hair faux pas yet!
Conditioning your hair is a very important step in your hair care routine. It's in fact one of the most basic steps as it's the key to soft, smooth and tangle-free hair.
Conditioning helps keep each strand of your hair healthy, adding to its natural shine and moisture. No matter what your hair type, you need to condition it. And condition it right. But what is the best way to use conditioner? 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 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. Unfortunately, it's a portion of the hair that is often ignored.
• Your scalp doesn’t need it: The main function of hair conditioner is to coat the hair in order 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.
• Choose the right time: After you shampoo and rinse your hair, it is usually dripping wet. The conditioner will not stay on well at this stage. That's why try towel drying your hair lightly right 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 ensure the conditioner penetrates thoroughly into the hair. Once you have done this, wait for at least 3 minutes before you rinse out the conditioner.
