Natural Hair Tip 101

The conditioner you select is perhaps the single most important element in your regimen. We demand a lot from our hair, and conditioner products are what make (or break) a healthy hair care regimen. Conditioners restore moisture lost to the shampooing process and improve the hair’s manageability. Because they are meant to adhere to the hair’s cuticle and produce long-lasting effects that remain after rinsing, conditioners play the most critical role in maintaining the hair’s protein /moisture balance. Conditioners are important because they are specifically formulated to help us achieve one of the two healthy hair characteristics: strength or softness. Although conditioners are usually formulated to both strengthen and soften the hair, they almost always tend to be better at one than the other.” ~Audrey Davis-Sivasothy, The Science of Black Hair. p.83,84
