The Benefits of Conditioning Your Hair

Have you noticed your hair feeling dry and brittle? Does it seem like no matter what you do, it just won’t stay hydrated and healthy? If this sounds like your experience, then you may need to start conditioning your hair. Conditioning your hair has many benefits that can improve the health and appearance of your mane. Let’s take a look at why conditioning is important and how to get the most out of it.

What Is Hair Conditioner?

Hair conditioner is a leave-in cream or liquid that helps to moisturize, detangle, add shine, and protect the hair from environmental damage. It works by coating the outer layer of each strand with a protective layer that locks in moisture, making it less prone to breakage. Hair conditioner also contains ingredients such as proteins, vitamins, oils, and minerals that help nourish the scalp and promote healthy hair growth.  

How Does It Help?

The most obvious benefit of using conditioner is that it makes your hair softer and more manageable. Regular use of a good quality conditioner will not only make combing through your strands easier but will also help prevent split ends caused by excessive brushing or styling. Conditioners also help protect against heat damage from blow drying or straightening tools, as well as environmental factors such as wind and sun exposure. Additionally, they can provide some UV protection so that your color-treated tresses don’t fade too quickly in the sun.

If you think your hair needs a deeper conditioning treatment, then you should use a hair mask weekly. We recommend using the SEA+SOLU Moisture Melt mask with the Moisture booster and Strength booster for added protection and hydration.                                                                            

Another great benefit of conditioning is that it helps to keep moisture locked into each strand so that the cuticles don’t become dry and brittle over time due to lack of hydration. This can help reduce fizziness while allowing for maximum curl definition when styling curly hair textures. Lastly, conditioning helps keep scalp health in check; regular use can help reduce dandruff while promoting healthier looking locks overall!

Why is it so important to condition my hair?

Conditioners will help to reduce the friction between the hair fibres in both wet and dry hair and thus lead to less breakage of the hair.

To get really technical hair is negatively charged (sort of like static electricity) but is insulated by the hair’s protective lipid layer. Most high cleansing shampoos also contain negatively charged surfactants which leave the hair even more negatively charged.

The result of this is that after shampooing the negative charges on each hair fibre repel each other leading to friction between hair fibres and this can lead to breakage when the hair is brushed.

Conditioners prevent this by neutralizing the electrical negative charge of the hair fibre by adding positive charges. The negative charge of the hair is attracted to the positively charged conditioner molecules, which results in the conditioner getting deposited on the hair. So conditioners neutralize the electrical charge of the hair fibre, and thus lower the friction between the hair fibres. Leading to less breakage, easier combing and more smooth and shiny hair!

Which conditioner you use depends on your hair type, product preference (leave-in or wash out) and the results you are trying to achieve as each product will have different active ingredients. This is exactly why we have created a customisable range at SEA+SOLU so you have can a bespoke haircare regime without the need to for spend a fortune on a large number of products.
