Common Hair Conditioner Myths Debunked
Whether you have a long hair or trendy pixie locks, you probably have your standard hair conditioning routine. Today, we’re about to know what’s really true about some common hair conditioner myths that we know since forever!
CONDITIONERS CAN WEIGH YOUR HAIR DOWN
♥ You probably heard this before. The truth is NOT ALL hair conditioner can weigh your hair down. There are some crazy variants of hair conditioners that are thick and feel heavy on your locks. Scan the ingredients and avoid products with ingredients like coconut, butter, and shea or labels with “rich in natural oils”.
APPLY CONDITIONER ON THE HAIR ENDS ONLY
♥ The hair gets damaged from root to tip, with that said it is only proper to condition the hair from root to tip, not just the ends. It is a total myth that only the ends of the hair need help. Think of the many hair products you use to style your mane, the heated tools you use to straighten and curl your locks, and even the heat of the sun and pollution that causes damage to your mane. These factors are not only damaging the hair ends but to your entire hair.
CONDITIONERS CAN MAKE YOUR HAIR FALL OUT
♥ It is a total myth that conditioners cause hair to fall out. Losing 100 hair strands a day is normal, even 150 in some cases. In fact, regular cleansing and conditioning can promote healthier hair. A gentle can protect the hair and can provide much-needed moisture for healthy looking locks. Conditioner can also stop additional hair loss by protecting hair from breakage. If you happen to see some falling hair it is because conditioner has the capacity to detangle hair, releasing those already shed strands.
CONDITIONERS MAKE YOUR HAIR GREASY
♥ Not applying conditioner on your hair because it might get too oily is a very popular belief. There are many reasons why your hair is greasy, BUT using the WRONG conditioner makes your hair and scalp oily. The best thing you can do is to find a hair conditioner that suits your needs. For example, if you have a fine hair, the best conditioner that you can use is the heavy ones.
CONDITIONER ONLY WORKS IN THE SHOWER
♥ Conditioners work and fix what needs to be fixed even after you rinsed it because conditioners are specially formulated to protect wet hair from towel drying, blow drying, and styling. In fact, we now have a leave-in conditioner that controls hair damage and at the same time gives extra hydration to the hair.
