Tips for conditioning your hair

All types of hair need a conditioner –even oily hair. Whilst some people prefer to use conditioners only on special occasions, the regular use of conditioner will help protect your hair cuticle and, thereby, protect the natural shine and beautiful condition of your hair. Even hair that is in ‘perfect’ condition needs gentle protection, especially if it has a tendency to be dry. Conditioners also help neutralize static electricity.

For your regular conditioning application after shampooing, follow these steps:

1. Thoroughly rinse out the shampoo.

2. Apply a sufficient amount of conditioner to cover hair lightly and evenly.

3. Allow the conditioner to remain on hair for 60 seconds while you gently massage it through.

4. Rinse thoroughly with warm water until hair feels smooth and tangle-free.

5. Use a wide-toothed comb to gently smooth out any remaining tangles.

    I find using conditioner once in a while rather than everyday actually keeps the hair healthier. I also found that washing my hair every 2 or 3 days actually keeps them nice for longer

    Conditioning hair so important.After awhile you will notice a big difference! If you think your hair feels to greasy when you condition it try deep conditioning it about every two days. Some peoples scalp produces the oils found in conditioners very fast! To keep your scalp healthy and your hair growing without using conditioner at all, try vitamin E!!

    I've heard drenching your hair with mayonaise and a small amount of olive oil and leaving it there for about five to ten minutes then washing it out really conditions and softens you hair.

    Prepare your skin/hair care products for immediate use. Use only fresh ingredients. Create the skin/hair care products for your skin type. Use a non-metallic (ceramic, glass, enamel) containers, metal can have chemical reactions with natural products. It is best to use a small but powerful food processor or blender to make a smooth paste.Keep all substances away from your eyes. Some substances (ex: lemon, alcohol) used in recipes can irritate the eyes. Always cool finished products to a comfortable temperature to apply to the skin.
