Has your hair been feeling rough, brittle? Is your hair prone to tangle and snap at the ends? If the answer is yes, then it’s time to use a conditioner. Conditioning your hair after shampooing can make hair softer, smoother and less prone to breakage and tangling. Whilst using the ProTress Essential Scalp Therapy Shampoo and Lotion 12 Week Treatment Pack, we recommend conditioning your hair, independent of the treatment at least every other week.
Whilst shampooing your hair, the cuticle, which are the outer layers of the hair strands are rubbed together, which causes the cuticles raise. Raised cuticles makes hair strands feel rough, look dull in appearance and more likely to tangle or snap. See diagram of cuticle below.
So how does conditioning our hair make it softer, smoother and less prone to breakage and tangling? Well, a GOOD conditioner (emphasis on GOOD), smooths the hair cuticles. A smooth cuticle is healthier, shinier, thicker in appearance and has more elasticity. Conditioner also balances the pH levels in your hair as well as sealing hair moisture.
