Are You Using the Right Hair Conditioner?
This is the question most people don’t think about. If it didn’t cross your mind, don’t worry. You are not alone. There are a lot of people who goes out and buy a conditioner without considering what it does to their hair. And usually the conditioner they bought doesn’t work for them thus making them change to a new one or ends up not using it at all.

Hair conditioner is usually used after washing your hair with or without the use of a shampoo. It helps restore the lost moisture right after you washed your hair. It also helps lessen tangles and static. Hair conditioner makes the hair smoother, shiny and makes the hair manageable. But not all conditioners work for all types of hair. Aside from knowing your hair type, you should also be aware of how your hair feels. That’s why when choosing the right conditioner for your hair, you should know if your hair feels oily, dry, dull, damaged or brittle.
If your hair feels Greasy or Oily:

However, there are hair conditioners that can help address your oily hair. And here are some basic tips you can do to help you manage your oily hair:

- If your hair is somewhat dry, you can look for hydrating, moisturising or balancing conditioners. But if you have damaged, brittle or very dry hair, look for conditioners that have repair or control formulations.
