Conditioning: A Key Part Of Hair Care
by admin August 15 2019
It's pretty common for people with busy lives to cut out things that seem unnecessary from their routines to save time. We cut corners where we can, like not eating a full breakfast, not doing a full face of make-up … even shower time is cut short. Conditioning seems like a skippable step, right? However, it's actually incredibly important for the health and vitality of your hair and plays a crucial part in how easy it is to style it.
You'll need to know the structure of hair in order to understand why it's so important. Under a microscope, you'd notice that a strand of hair looks like flakes. The top layer of hair, the cuticle, is made up of cells that overlap to protect the core of a strand, the cortex. If cuticle cells aren't overlapping properly, the cortex is exposed and is easy to damage. If the cuticles don't lay down smooth, they get caught on other strands which leads to tangles and frizz.
On the daily, our hair is exposed to heat, wind, and pollutants. Although heat is the leading cause of damage, all can leave your hair vulnerable.
This is why conditioner is so important. The ingredients bond to the hair strands, smoothing the cuticles back down. Even after the conditioner is washed out, your hair is protected, smooth, shiny, and soft.
Every time you shampoo, follow it up with conditioner. Don't skip it! It might even save you time since it makes it easier to comb out and style later on.
You might think conditioner weighs down the hair, but that only happens if it's not rinsed out enough. Use small amounts and focus on the ends of your hair where it's needed the most.
If you have dry, thick, or curly hair, deep conditioning treatments might be needed along with your standard conditioning. Ask your Avanté stylist if you need the additional treatments and they'll help you find just what you need.
It's also important that your hair is trimmed regularly since split ends can cause more damage and make your hair frizzy.
