5 Mistakes To Avoid While Using A Hair Conditioner

Do you skip out on using a conditioner after shampooing your hair? While shampoos are vital for cleansing the scalp and hair, conditioners too help to seal moisture in your tresses. Hence, it is important to include them in your hair care routine. If your conditioner hasn’t worked well for you in the past, it is likely that you were making a mistake while using it. Here’s what Godrej Professional’s experts think you might be doing wrong. 

#1 Saying No To The Conditioner

Skipping conditioner never works well for anyone! It is important to understand that a conditioner is to your hair what a moisturizer is to your skin. Every time you condition your hair, you are actually hydrating and nourishing hair to make it healthier and shinier. A shampoo cleanses your scalp and gets rid of any buildup on your hair. Post a shampoo rinse, a conditioner is needed to restore the hydration and moisture in your tresses. 

#2 You’re Using The Wrong Conditioner

With a number of options available, it is easy to pick the wrong conditioner that doesn’t match the needs of your hair. It all really comes down to your hair type and concerns faced. Keep in mind that a conditioner works best when it is combined with a complementing shampoo. 

Looking for a conditioner to revive dry and damaged tresses? Then the Keracare Recharge Conditioner is for you. 

How To Use?

  • Rinse hair well with the Keracare Recharge Shampoo. 
  • Pump a small amount of the Keracare Recharge Conditioner on your palms and apply evenly from the mid-lengths to the tips. 
  • Leave it on for at least three minutes and rinse hair thoroughly.

What makes this conditioner special? The Keracare Recharge combo is specially formulated to rejuvenate dry and lifeless locks. Enriched with the goodness of wheat protein and acai oil, the combo works to deeply nourish your hair and helps in managing frizz. 

#3 Leaving Behind Conditioner Residue

You might feel the need to skip out on conditioners because they might make hair greasy and sticky. But when this happens, it is likely that you are leaving behind some conditioner residue in the hair. Make sure you rinse it out completely and leave behind no residue. If you wash your hair in a rush, residue build-up is common which can weigh your hair strands down and make it appear greasy or dirty. 

#4 Inconsistent Use Of The Conditioner

Have you been applying conditioner regularly, but feel like it isn’t working for you? This could mean that you are using too much or too little of the conditioner. Too much of the product does not guarantee effective results and too little of the product will not be enough to moisturize hair. Conditioners aren’t supposed to be applied to the roots. So the next time you one, take a coin-sized amount in your palms and apply it evenly from the mid-lengths to the tips. 

#5 You’re Not Leaving It In Long Enough

Invest in a conditioner with your time while washing hair. If you rinse it off right away, it is of no use for your hair health. The product needs time to be absorbed by the tresses to work effectively. Read the product label carefully  to understand how long the conditioner can be left in your hair strands. The ideal time is usually between 2-5 minutes. 

Pro Tip: Once you wash your hair and apply a conditioner, finish your entire bathing routine and then rinse off the conditioner in the end. 

It is easy to skip conditioners when you’re in a hurry. But take it from the experts - this isn’t a good practice. Every time you condition your hair, hair becomes hydrated and less vulnerable to damage. Moisturize your way to soft and healthy tresses!
