There are probably a few awesome things you could do with your conditioner which you didn’t know about, and that’s okay because it’s a very tricky hair product to get to know. Here are some things you should know about this conditioner:

You can style with it – Conditioners aren’t just great for when you’re in the shower but the perfect tool to use if you’re looking for that beach wave look. All you got to do is spray a tiny amount of leave-in conditioner to your damp hair, comb your tresses and braid it.

Condition before shampooing – It sounds totally ludicrous but it adds volume to your hair. Now you can have an envious extra bounce!

Choose the right one – Choosing the right conditioner can be hard but work with the hair you have. For example, if you have thick and greasy hair, you might want to choose a conditioner that hasn’t got a lot of oil in its formula. If you have flat and thin hair, go for volumizing conditioner.

Stay away from the roots – Not a lot of women know this but you shouldn’t be applying conditioner on the roots of your hair. Start from the ends of your hair to the mid-length – that’s where its needed most.

Conditioners can be damaging – If you use a conditioner that’s silicone-based, you can bet that your hair will be ripped off its natural nutrients. Always look for conditioners that’s marked “silicone-free” to keep your hair healthy and shiny.
