The Uses of Hair Conditioner
- It softens your hair:
Yes, it is definitely good to use a shampoo for your hair, but if you don't use a hair conditioner after shampooing, your hair will miss that final sparkle it deserves. Shampoos are perfect but the conditioner is what gives a final touch of perfection to your hair.
Without conditioners, your hair can be a little rough. Try using the conditioner and experience your hair become as soft as a feather.
Although shampoos work hard to remove all the impurities and give you smooth hair, it is really in need of a conditioner's support to achieve flawless hair.
So, now you know what to do. In order to get soft and smooth hair, make sure you use a conditioner after shampooing.
- It detangles the tangles:
Hair tangles can be a serious pain and irritation for many. We know and we empathize with you which is why we suggest you to use a conditioner for your hair, so that you can set yourself free from the annoyance of tangles.
After your hair gets cleansed, it becomes dry and rough, making your hair strands entangle upon each other very quickly.
So this is where the conditioner makes an entry to play its role. When you use a hair conditioner, it detangles your hair and keeps it downwards, giving your hair a fine and smooth look.
- It guards the hair cuticles:
Out of all the benefits, this is the most important role the conditioners play - it protects your hair cuticles.
Not sure what cuticles are? Here is a new piece of information! It is nothing but the outermost layer of the hair, which is formed from the dead cells.
When you condition your hair, you create a shield around its cuticles, protecting them from pollution and the adverse effects of heat styling tools, such as hair straighteners, hair dryers etc.
- It moisturizes your hair:
Now that you know shampoos clean your hair and wash away the dirt, you must also know that it sometimes damages your hair cuticles. It removes the important and necessary oils from your hair and scalp, which is no good news.
This is when the conditioner needs to be used to do its magic. Using it helps in filling back the amount of moisture that has been lost, to your hair strands. Also, while this happens, your hair turns out to become stronger and you can see a reduction in hair fall, which is definitely a good news.
- Hassle-free styling:
When you condition your hair, you make it become more soft and glossy. This will give you the freedom to style your hair easily, as per your wish.
So, for better styling, don't forget to use a conditioner for your hair.

We made it easy for you, didn't we? Just follow these 6 steps on how to apply conditioner and have silky and shiny hair!
Leave the conditioner on, but for how long?
Well, it has to be noted that the duration differs for different kinds of conditioners.
If you are using a normal hair conditioner, you must leave it on for one minute, as mentioned above earlier.
However, that is not the case when it comes to the leave-in conditioner, as it has to be left on between one and three minutes, which makes it an average of 2 minutes.
Lastly - the deep conditioner. This one's duration is quite longer when compared to the other two. Here, you must leave it on between 10 to 30 minutes, and make sure you use it just once a week.
So, while you condition your hair, always check which type of conditioner you are using and have an eye on the instructions given on the label of the bottle.
How much conditioner should you use?
If you think you can apply how much ever conditioner you want on your head, we would like to give you an advice - don't think of it or repeat it ever again.
When it comes to using conditioners, the less is actually more. So, the lesser the amount, the better it is.
Now if you ask how much you should be using particularly, the ideal amount is 2 quarter-sized dollops, depending on the length and thickness of your hair.
