Conditioner, the Ally for Dry Hair

Manufactured with hydrating and nourishing agents, these hair products are perfect for revitalizing dry hair. We reveal all their advantages and provide advice on choosing and using them effectively.

Conditioner. What is it?

It is a treatment applied to damp hair immediately after washing with shampoo. Depending on the hair type, there are suitable conditioners: for oily, damaged, colored, curly, intense brown, or bright blonde hair. And, of course, there are also formulations suitable for dry hair. They are developed with specific active components and ingredients tailored to the needs of each hair type. While conditioners are part of haircare routines today, they are not meant for washing hair but for treating it.

Advantages for Dry Hair

Conditioners are typically designed with hydrating active ingredients because healthy hair is well-nourished and, above all, well-hydrated. For dry hair, it's essential that conditioners are richer to preserve moisture.

The conditioner can quickly become the best friend of dry hair because, with its hydrating active ingredients, the hair becomes soft and shiny from the first use. Whether it's aloe vera, sweet almond oil, shea butter, or silk protein, the results are impressive. However, it is over time and with repeated use that you can determine if the conditioner suits your hair type well or if it's necessary to try another with a different active ingredient, perhaps more effective or suitable.

Hair can be dry for two reasons: it may lack hydration and therefore water. In this case, you should choose a conditioner to retain water in the hair fiber or capture it from the surrounding air. For this, the formation of a barrier with aloe vera, ceramides, amino acids is recommended.

They can also be dry due to a lack of lipids, meaning they are not sufficiently nourished. Typically, the hair is also dull and brittle. Conditioners with nourishing active ingredients will be suitable: royal jelly, honey, butters, and vegetable oils that nourish the hair, forming a protective barrier that prevents water from evaporating from the hair fiber.

Thanks to its components and care action, the conditioner strengthens the hair, making it shiny and soft in the long run.

The Haircare Routine to Adopt for Dry Hair

Of course, a poorly chosen or misused conditioner can leave the hair oily or flat. The products we put in our hair must be chosen precisely according to their nature. The first thing is to discover why the hair is dry so that you know how to correct it. A professional hairstylist can be a good advisor to get to the root of the problem.

Every day, hair is attacked by pollution, stress, sun, cold, or smoke. This weakens them, especially if they are naturally dry. For very dry hair, the use of a conditioner is recommended two to three times a week. Over time, when the hair regains some vitality and tone, it will be possible to space out the applications.

After shampooing, wring out the hair and apply the conditioner to the lengths and ends, avoiding the scalp and roots. Massage the hair gently before waiting for 2 to 3 minutes for the treatment to take effect. Finally, rinse the hair well as the conditioner may weigh it down. When running your fingers through the hair, the effect is already noticeable: they become softer, easily detangled, and smoothed.

To dry the hair, it is best to limit the use of the hairdryer, which risks removing all the benefits of the conditioner, and favor a microfiber towel that absorbs water more quickly.
