Use two conditioners when you wash your hair. Use one in the shower after rinsing the shampoo out of your hair. The other conditioner is a leave-in conditioner. It should be applied after you are out of the shower and you towel dry your hair. The combination of conditioners will reduce the static in your hair, as well as, leaving it healthy, soft and manageable.
Try to avoid sticking to just one brand of conditioner or shampoo. When you change brands every now and then, your hair may react positively. Another brand may remove all the buildup and keep your scalp clean and healthy.
Choosing your shampoo and conditioner can seem overwhelming. Manufacturers spend a great deal of time and money coming up with formulas for particular hair types. Use the labels on the bottles to find the products that match your hair type. Match your conditioner to your shampoo and try different brands, if you are unhappy with the results that you get.
Always use a great conditioner. When you use a good conditioner, it moisturizes and protects your hair, and adds a lovely shine. When applying conditioner, spread it throughout your hair evenly, but try to avoid the roots if you have particularly oil hair. Always rinse it out thoroughly, as any residue left in your hair will leave it looking dull.
Do not wash curly hair more than two times per week. Also you should use a detangler daily, while your hair is wet. Remember to not put a blow dryer to use on your hair, as the heat will only bring out frizz, which is less than attractive.
If you have to blow dry your hair then at least put leave-in conditioner when you do so. Using a preventative product will help decrease troublesome hair breakage. Although, it isn’t quite as effective as skipping the blow drier altogether.
If you are a woman of color, you should never use a shampoo and conditioner combo. You should instead, use a different shampoo and conditioner. These were not designed for ethnic hair and you can severely dry out your hair by using these types of products on a daily basis or even, a few days a week.
Even if you are running short on time, always take the time to add conditioner to your hair. Conditioner gives your hair much of its needed moisture, so your hair can stay healthy looking for much longer! If time is of the essence, consider using a leave-in conditioner that you can apply at your leisure.
One of the best things that you can do for your hair is to use a shampoo and conditioner in one. This allows you to knock off two steps at once, as you are cleaning and moisturizing your hair at the same time. Use a shampoo and conditioner two or three days a week for maximum efficiency.
