How to Use Conditioner for Your Healthy & Gorgeous Hair
While many of us shampoo our manes regularly, we often overlook the importance of using a conditioner. Conditioning is basically the second step in the hair-washing process. Not only does conditioner help detangle and soften your locks, but it also protects your hair from damage and adds a healthy shine. The solution to your hair woes is as easy as a flip of the bottle cap, but applying it properly can make all the difference. To help you, Godrej Professional experts are here with tips on how to use hair conditioner and all the dos and don'ts!
Now let’s proceed with the steps on how to use conditioner after shampoo.
How to Use A Regular Conditioner:
While using a conditioner seems like a simple task, there are a few tricks and tips that can make all the difference. First, we'll take you through the steps of how to apply hair conditioner:
- First, wash your hair with the sulphate-free shampoo, which is suitable for your hair type.
- Lather it at the roots and then work it through the lengths of your hair & rinse out the shampoo.
- Squeeze out any excess water from your hair so that it's damp but not dripping wet. This will help the conditioner penetrate your hair better.
- Evenly apply the Conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your damp hair.
- For long hair, spread the conditioner from the chin level and down. Don’t apply it to your scalp.
- Run a wide-tooth comb through your hair to work in the conditioner.
- Let it stay on your hair for at least three minutes before rinsing it off.
How to Apply A Leave In Conditioner:
- To use a Leave in conditioner wash your hair with either just the shampoo or professional shampoo and Conditioner both in the shower.
- Towel dry your hair to remove excess water. Your hair should be damp, not dripping wet.
- Use the Leave-in conditioner evenly across freshly washed damp hair and comb through.
- Use your fingers to work through your hair if needed. You can also use it for everyday styling.
- Do not apply on the scalp.
Choosing the Right Conditioner for Your Hair
Choosing the right conditioner for your hair can make a world of difference in the overall health and appearance of your locks. Different hair types have different needs, so it's important to choose a conditioner that's tailored to your hair type. If you have fine hair, look for a lightweight, volumizing conditioner. If you have curly or coarse hair, a richer, more moisturising conditioner may be better. Depending on your hair needs, choose conditioners specifically formulated for color-treated hair, anti-dandruff conditioners, or deep-conditioning treatments for damaged hair.

Now that you’ve learned how to pick and how to use a hair conditioner, take note of the mistakes you need to avoid when it comes to using conditioners.
Mistakes To Avoid While Using A Hair Conditioner
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 our experts think you might be doing wrong:
1. Saying No To The Conditioner
Skipping conditioner never works well for anyone! Post a shampoo rinse, a conditioner is needed to restore the hydration and moisture in your tresses. 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.
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 the concerns faced. Keep in mind that a conditioner works best when it is combined with a complementing shampoo.
3. Leaving Behind Conditioner Residue
You might feel the need to skip out on conditioners because they might make hair greasy. 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 as residue build-up is common which can weigh your hair strands down and make it appear greasy or dirty.
4. How Much Conditioner Should You Use
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 moisturise hair. So the next time you are using one, take a coin-sized amount in your palms and apply it evenly.
5. You’re Not Leaving It In Long Enough
Invest sufficient time on the conditioner after you’ve applied it. If you rinse it off right away, it is of no use to your hair health. The product needs time to be absorbed by your 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.
