You reach out for the fragrant, pricey, salon-style shampoo to give your hair a lovely, fragrant wash and feel refreshed. But haven’t you missed a step? How about conditioning your hair to keep it soft, smooth and tangle-free?
Hair conditioning will heal your damaged and lackluster hair to make them smooth, silky and shiny.
Here are five reasons that explain why using top hair conditioners is so important:
Nourishment – When you shampoo your hair, it not only removes dirt and dust but also zaps out the crucial nutrients from the scalp and hair. The only way to restore the nutrients is to use a good, quality hair conditioner. Otherwise, you would end up with rough, unruly and weak hair.
Moisturizes – Usage of shampoo leads to loss of moisture from hair which can lead to hair loss and roughness. A good hair conditioner restores the lost moisture and keeps your tresses soft and silky.
Protects – Hair conditioning protects your hair from rough weather and changing environmental conditions. Whether it be a harsh summer afternoon or a chilly, cold winter evening, hair conditioning would ensure that the hair stays healthy, thick and lustrous.

From The Tips To Roots – The tips I.e lower end of your hair needs special attention as they are in the growing stage. Start from your hair tips and work your way towards the roots to give the nourishment required for the hair to grow.
Avoid The Scalp – We all make this mistake of applying hair conditioner to the scalp. But the application of hair conditioner is to coat the hair shaft for making the hair cuticles lie down. Therefore, apply conditioner only to the hair and not use it on the scalp.
Hair coloring and straightening leads to raising the scales on cuticles which results in loss of smoothness and shine. Hair conditioning reverses the damage and provides essential nutrients to the hair.
