Beauty ABC: Why do we need a conditioner?

Beauty ABC: Warum brauchen wir einen Conditioner?

First of all, the question is: Is a conditioner different from a conditioner? No, conditioner is just the English term for good old conditioner. That's settled, now we can address the really important question: What can a conditioner do? The answer to that is: A lot.

Essentially, the conditioner is something like the moisturizer for your hair. And just as you don't skip the final care after cleansing your face, you shouldn't do the same when washing your hair. Shampoo and conditioner differ in the composition of their ingredients and therefore have different effects. The shampoo frees hair and scalp from dirt and sebum residue and opens the cuticle layer of the hair. This makes them more susceptible to harmful influences such as UV rays and heat - but also more receptive to care. And this is exactly where your conditioner comes into play.

How-to: Use conditioner correctly

It wraps itself around each individual hair like a protective coat and smoothes the cuticle again. This means the hair is smooth and has a healthy shine. In addition, it is now protected again from harmful environmental influences, which reduces the risk of hair breakage and split ends. Since less moisture can escape through the closed cuticle layer, a conditioner after washing your hair is an absolute must, especially for dry hair.

You already use a conditioner, but afterwards your hair hangs flat and there is no volume to speak of? Don't worry, there are a few tricks you can use to get around this problem:

1. A lot doesn't help much! Depending on the length of your hair, an amount of conditioner the size of a hazelnut to a walnut is sufficient.
2. Conditioner only belongs in the hair lengths, not on the scalp! Because this is exactly where it unnecessarily weighs down your hair and robs it of its volume.
3. Rinse thoroughly! Because residue from conditioner makes the hair greasy. So rinse with lukewarm water until your hair feels “squeaky”.

Hair treatment: backup for your conditioner

The excuse “my hair can’t handle conditioner” no longer applies. Especially since there is the right product on the market for every hair type. If your hair is dry, it's best to use a leave-in treatment that doesn't need to be rinsed out and keeps the hair moisturized for a long time; Fine hair that gets greasy quickly enjoys a build-up conditioner, while damaged hair gets new structure with a repair conditioner.

As great as a conditioner is, you still can't trust it with your hair alone. Even if it is used every day - and it should be! – he cannot do the intensive care work alone and needs regular support from a hair treatment. This should also suit your hair type and be used once a week. It's best to use a product without silicones, as they do more harm than good to the hair.
