It's no secret that conditioner is essential to healthy, great-looking hair, but do you know how to make the most of yours? It may seem as simple as apply, wait a few minutes and rinse, but to get the best results, there's a little more to it.
To find out how to make your conditioner work for you, check out the haircare tips below!
Get the right conditioner for your hair type
It may sound obvious, but making sure you're using the right conditioner for your hair type is important. Always check the label to make sure you get the right kind, otherwise the benefits will be lost on your strands.
Apply it to towel-dried hair
If you feel like your locks aren't as manageable as you'd like, try drying them off with a towel before applying your conditioner next time. Generally speaking, the more moisture you can remove beforehand, the more conditioner your hair will absorb.
Avoid leaving it on for too long
To maximize the benefits of your conditioner, you should only leave it on for as long as it says on the bottle. After all, it has been specially formulated to work on your hair for that specific amount of time!
If you can feel that all of the conditioner has been absorbed into your hair, don't hesitate to add more, especially to the ends. This is particularly important for long locks as you'll need enough conditioner to nourish and hydrate all of your hair.
Don't wash your hair too often
Over-washing can cause your hair to become dry and brittle, even if you use conditioner every time. Try to wash it every other day at most. In between washes, use Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray to absorb excess oil at the roots and keep your mane looking fresh.
