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 This means they return the oil and nutrients withdrawn by the shampoo during the wash.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.
