Shampoos are designed to remove all the dirt and oil from your hair. Conditioners are designed to leave your hair soft, silky and manageable. Picking a conditioner can almost be as complex as picking a shampoo. There are several things that you will want to consider before you head out to buy a conditioner: you hair type, texture, color, condition, health and length. All of these factors work together to help you pick the conditioner that is just right for you. Look below for your hair type to find out more about what conditioner you should choose:
- Normal Hair– For normal hair, your options are endless. You can opt for creamy conditioner if you want extra body or normal conditioner if you just want to keep things simple. Another option is to use a shampoo-conditioner in one if you always find yourself being rushed in the mornings.
- Dry Hair- For dry hair, you will want to find a conditioner that is specially formulated to repair dull, unhealthy looking hair. You will also want to find a conditioner that will help restore moisture and vibrancy to the hair follicles. Look for rich, creamy formulas and use daily.
- Thinning Hair– You will not be able to find a magic formula for thinning hair in a shampoo or conditioner. However, it is possible to find a conditioner that will help to make your hair appear thicker. You will want to find a conditioner that promised to help make hair follicles fuller and more stable.
- Oily Hair- Many people who have oily hair think that they shouldn’t condition their hair at all because it will only make it appear oilier. Even if you do have oily hair, you should condition your hair. If you wish to condition you hair only every other time that you shampoo, that would be okay too.
