How to choose the right conditioner

There are so many ‘conditioners’ out there. From Leave In to Regular Conditioner to Deep Conditioning Masks, it can be confusing to figure out which to use and when. We enlisted the help of our resident hair expert, Stephanie Sey to shed some much needed clarity.

 Deep Conditioner

Deep conditioners provide an intense shot of moisture which penetrates deep into the hair fibre. They usually contain moisture boosting ingredients with healthy fats like Avocado oil and Vitamins for repairing the hair. Deep conditioners should be used weekly for dry damaged hair and bi-weekly/monthly in all other circumstances.

TIP: Heat is usually used when deep conditioning to turbo charge the moisture boosting process!

 Leave In Conditioner

Leave In conditioners add further moisture after the washing process and help make the styling process manageable. They can be used to help retain moisture for longer when used as part of the LOC method (Leave In, Oil and Cream).

For fine hair types, use lighter formulas or use as a moisturiser like Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave In Conditioning Spray

For thicker hair, use creamy thicker formulas like Anita Grant Curl Conditioning Double Cream Intensive Leave In

Regular Conditioner

Conditioners restore moisture lost after shampooing. They help with detangling and adhere to the hair fibre, improving look, feel and texture of the hair.

Relaxed Hair

There is no difference in the conditioning practices between relaxed and natural hair. However, should use more protein treatments than moisturising for relaxed hair. _jamaican_black_castor_oil_strengthen_grow_restore_treatment_masque

Locs

Avoid heavier oil based conditioners, as they will be difficult to rinse. Use lighter conditioners.
