Should You Use Conditioner in Your Hair?

Should You Use Conditioner in Your Hair?

When you wash your hair are you the type that uses shampoo and conditioner? Maybe you’re the type that has always passed on using conditioner thinking it’s really not necessary. Sure it’s an extra step, and an extra product to buy, but conditioner definitely has its merits. If you’re on the fence as to whether to use it or not, here’s some information that may help you make up your mind.

How Long is Your Hair?

One of the biggest deciding factors when it comes to using conditioner is how long your hair is. The longer your hair, the more important conditioner becomes. If you have long hair it is recommended you use conditioner each time you wash your hair. For guys with shorter haircuts, there is still plenty to be said for conditioner, but you probably don’t need to use it each time you wash your hair. Usually once a week is sufficient.

Prevent Damage from Happening

Conditioner works to hydrate your hair which can prevent damage from happening, or at least cut down on it. If you have dry, brittle ends, then conditioner is all the more important. When you shop for conditioner make sure you pick one that is suited to your hair needs. For instance, those guys who color their hair will want a color-safe conditioner. This will not only treat the hair but also prevent the color from fading.

Condition Your Scalp

Now here’s something interesting that people don’t always realize. Sure the conditioner is great for your hair and helps it to stay hydrated, but did you know it also helps your scalp? That's right. It can also condition and moisturize your scalp, which can be especially important in the cold winter months.

Make Sure to Rinse Well

Just as with shampoo, you will want to make sure you rinse the conditioner out of your hair very well. If it is left on your scalp it can cause your scalp to get oily and greasy, which will then work its way into your hair very quickly. A light conditioner tends to wash out much easier than heavier conditioners.
