How To Find The Best Conditioner For Your Hair

How To Find The Best Conditioner For Your Hair

Finding the perfect conditioner can transform your hair from dry and dull to silky and smooth. Keep reading to find out how to choose the right conditioner for you and discover the best conditioner for dry, damaged, frizzy or bleached hair. 

Step 1: Determine Your Hair Type 

We’ll let you in on a secret: knowing your hair type is key to finding the best conditioner for you. Look in the mirror and assess: 

  • Density: Take the front section of your hair and pull it to the side. If you can see your scalp, you have fine hair, and if not, it’s on the thicker side. 
  • Shape: Is your hair straight, wavy or curly? 
  • Health: Does your hair feel dry and damaged? Does it lack shine and volume? 

Step 2: Assess The Damage 

Choosing the best conditioner involves understanding your hair health and what has caused damage.  

  • Colour damage: Do you dye your hair often? Colour treatment can weaken hair and cause breakage, so you’ll need to choose a conditioner that restores bonds. 
  • Heat damage: Heat tools can cause serious damage, leaving hair dry and brittle – a repairing conditioner is the answer. 
  • Split ends: Noticing lots of frayed ends? Don’t worry! A leave-in conditioner can bring hair back to life. 

Step 3: Know What To Look For 

Once you’ve determined your hair type and assessed the damage, you can start looking for the best conditioner for you. Here’s what to look for: 

  • Fine hair: Volumising conditioners are best, as they strengthen and thicken the hair. 
  • Thick hair: Avoid adding extra weight with a lightweight conditioner. 
  • Straight hair: Opt for a smoothing conditioner to seal the cuticle and prevent frizz. 
  • Wavy or curly hair: Reduce frizz and avoid weighing down the hair by using a lightweight, hydrating conditioner. 
  • Dry hair: Leave-in conditioners and nourishing formulas are your best friend! Add moisture and hydration to reduce dryness. 
  • Damaged hair: The best conditioner for damaged hair will have a strengthening formula to repair and revive.
