Function of the conditioner
To understand the function of the conditioner, it is first necessary to know that the shampoo acts by opening the cuticles of the yarn to remove excess particles of dirt and grease. "The conditioner is a product whose function is to return to the scalp some of the oil that was taken by the shampoo," explains the tricerologist Valcinir Bedin. "But that does not mean it's always necessary, especially when it comes to oily hair."
The conditioner is also responsible for closing the cuticles (outermost layer) of the threads that were opened during the wash. When the cuticles of the hair are aligned, the wires become soft and easier to comb. So if you have the chemicals, such as tincture or progressive, it is essential to use the conditioner after washing to prevent the chemical from flowing down the drain. "The ideal is that if you choose shampoo and conditioner on the same line because they were designed to work together," explains the tricologist. Noted?
Types of conditioner
If you notice the shelves in the supermarket, you will realize that there are a huge variety of types of conditioners: some promise maximum hydration, others are suitable for colored threads. Understand how each of them acts on your wires:
Moisturizers: Most conditioners are moisturizing. This means they return the oil and nutrients withdrawn by the shampoo during the wash. Products with oil in the formula act directly to recover this oiliness and are indicated for dry and dull wires. Moisturizing conditioners can be used by all types of hair.
Antioxidants: Are the conditioners indicated for yarns with chemistry, such as stains and progressive. This type of product avoids the formation of free radicals, molecules formed by external agents, such as pollution and heat (enters this equation sun, flat and dryer), which unbalance the functioning of the body. Free radicals cause oxidation of dye pigments and color fading and antioxidant conditioners combat the problem.
Cleanliness: The novelty, which for the moment can only be found in gringo lands, has not yet arrived in Brazil. It is a 2 in 1 product: it is shampoo and conditioner at the same time. Without sulfate (one of the most common detergent types in shampoos) and with a formula consisting of 1/4 cleansing agents and 3/4 hydration, the product moisturizes and cleans the wets without foaming. For this reason, it is indicated for hair curly and curly, naturally drier.
How to use the conditioner correctly
Washing the wires correctly is the basic criterion for having beautiful wires. To do this, you must pay attention to the temperature of the water, which must be cold or warm so you do not open the cuticles too much. The conditioner should be applied only on length and tips, never at the root - this can cause dandruff! Ah, when rinsing, completely remove the product from the wires. Leaving a little product on the wires for easy brushing can leave the wires heavy and dull. In this case, you may prefer to use a leave-in after bathing.
The conditioner returns the hydration that the shampoo removes. This type of product has specifics for each type of hair and it is recommended to use it only in the extension of the hair.
If your hair is damaged, the tip is to use the Silk Instant Restore Conditioner, which restores the wires from the inside out. If it is the case of replenishing the nutrients that hair loses with age, you can use the INOAR BOMBAR Hair Hydrating Kit.
Or even want to deeply purify the hair, the G HAIR THERAPY PROGRESS MASK has antioxidant properties that leave your hair looking dazzling and healthy.

Attention to wash, dry and moisturize is key to conquer resistant wires
Rolled, flat, curly, light or dark. No matter what your hair type, surely you have wanted a wig to raze with shampoo commercial effect. And for that invested in creams, accessories and beauty salons. But it's likely that you've forgotten a "small" detail: the scalp. It is that each hair rises and therefore inherits the qualities so as defects. If this region is with excess oil, skin or constantly dirty, there is no court to resolve, the locks will always have the same problems.
Dermatologist Valcinir Bedin explains that the roots of the hair are the basis for strong wires. "The neglect of the scalp can cause dandruff, scaling, excessive oiliness and even damage the hair nutrition." The good news is that just a little attention to ensure healthy roots. Check the care following scalp.
1. At the time of washing
You are adept at a nice hot shower and even wash your hair every day? The tactic may even be relaxing, but it's probably detonating your scalp - and in different ways. First, hot water stimulates the sebaceous glands of the region, responsible for the production of oils, which work more than normal. But the excess water resulting from daily washing will remove the natural oils, stimulating the glands to work harder to compensate for the lack of sebum. The result is the appearance of greasy double that can clog the pores that give way to the hair, and consequently hinder the distribution of such oil, important for full hydration by wire.
To avoid a disaster, Valcinir Bedin recommends that the washing is done with water at lower temperature than 25 degrees and preferably on alternate days. So you avoid the damage caused by excess water, without allowing the accumulation of dirt. "For very oily hair, if it fails to merge washings, is essential to observe the water temperature, which should be warm to cold," says the expert.
2. Rinse well
The hairdresser Marilia Kikuchi, technical Condor consultant, says that the accumulation of products at the root of the hair can also clog the pores (hair follicles) of the scalp, which is where the hair comes out, damaging the wire nutrition. "This is common with the products of the type" 2 in 1 ", which add shampoo and conditioner in one formula," he explains. "In general, people do not fully remove this hair product, and the remnants end up accumulating in the scalp." But the problem can happen with any other product. The expert recommends conditioners and lotions are not applied directly to the root and the shampoo is thoroughly removed after cleaning.
3. Moisturizing to combat desquamation
Many people suffer from dryness of the scalp. The expert recommends that care when there is flaking, which can be caused by temperature drop: "In the cold, sweating is diminished, so there is dryness of the scalp and possibly flaking" he explains. There are specific products that can moisturize the scalp without letting it with slick appearance and not clog the pores of the scalp. Active ingredients such as urea and ammonium lactate, for example, have high emollient power. "While the lactate promotes hydration leather retaining water, urea has the main function moisturize and soften the hair," says Valcinir Bedin. Remember that the products that moisturize the scalp are not the same used to moisturize the wire. Use a hair mask in the region for this purpose can therefore aggravate the situation.
4. Dryer and flat iron
For the wires are no products activated by the heat of the dryer and flat iron to give the necessary protection. But what about the roots? There is no product capable of mitigating the damage from excessive heat, the only solution is careful to do these procedures. Dermatologist Valcinir Bedin recommends keeping the dryer at a minimum distance of 30 cm from the root of the hair and flat iron to about a centimeter and a half of the scalp. The expert also makes the warning: by most popular and practice that the flat iron has become, we must remember that it damages the hair and can not be used as often.
progressive, permanent, permanent brush and other chemical procedure can trigger wires. The same danger runs the scalp. These products are acidic and therefore can burn and generate scaling scalp. "Ideally, the professional make a sensitivity test before applying the product," guides the hairdresser Marilia Kikuchi, technical consultant of the Condor.
6. Food nourishes the scalp
hairs are composed of substances acquired through food, so a proper diet is crucial for the nutrients reach the scalp and constitute a fine wire. The dermatologist Ademir Júnior, member of the Brazilian Society of Aesthetic Medicine, explains that amino acids and proteins (meat, eggs and milk), for example, stimulate the growth and strengthening of the wires, while zinc (nuts, seafood, germ wheat and yeast) stimulates growth and reduces oiliness, and omega-3 and omega-6 (found in functional oils) help in wire hydration.
7. Seek medical attention if ...
Shampoos, conditioners and lotions easily found in pharmacies can indeed help control problems like dandruff, for example, but if the discomfort does not improve, it is best to consult a doctor. This is because the hair roots can hide very serious problems such as eczema - one peeling starting commonly with an allergy - psoriasis of the scalp, and even alopecia areata, which is one of the ways in which hair loss can manifest. "The doctor can also diagnose the problem more precisely, differentiating dandruff flaking, for example, and prescribe more effective drugs," explains Valcinir Bedin.

The importance of using Conditioner! July 26 2016A good shampoo combined with the nutrients that the hair must bring excellent results, after all, we tested it almost every day. Now, the conditioner is abandoned by many women. But is that most people know their role and benefits for hair? Let us understand then why use it!
What does the conditioner?Before understanding the function of conditioner you need to know how to act shampoos hair. In addition to its active treatment, the basic function of shampoo is to cleanse the hair and scalp, removing its oiliness. In this wash, shampoo opens the scales of the cuticle to make hair cleaning. As the shampoo removes all the oiliness of the wires, the hair becomes electric, so it is necessary to open the scales back to close to prevent the hair is dried with appearance and dull.
That's where the conditioner comes in. The conditioner has the function to return the natural oils of the hair was removed by shampoo, leaving it as close to the natural. The conditioner closes the hair scales, eliminating wires of electricity, acquiring an invisible protective layer that facilitates combing and provides nutrition and shine to the hair when dry.
What are the benefits of conditioner?The basis of all conditioner is to neutralize the hair electricity, closing his scales, leaving more pliable and shiny hair. But today conditioners have different active ingredients in their formulations, which besides its basic benefits, depending on the assets it contains, provide the hair:

Although the conditioner has many advantages, its use should be moderate and removed completely from the hair, because the excess will produce an increase of sebum, leaving hair heavy and dirty look.
Conditioner x hair typesIn oily hair

The comb cream to have a heavier formula is most appropriate for frizzy hair, curly, for the same models the clusters taking the volume. The leave also models in the hair, but goes beyond that, by not penetrate the wires, it forms a protective layer, so it is also recommended before the use of flat iron or dryer
