Rinse-Off Excess Water

When you apply hair conditioner, the locks must not be soaking wet. They must be damp. The product works best with damp locks and prevents hair fall as well. Once you are done washing your strands with a shampoo, twist them together with light hands to rinse off excess water. You can also wrap a towel for 10 minutes after washing, and apply a hair conditioner after that.

Apply Only On Length

Hair conditioner is not for the scalp or roots, but it is for the length. Take some amount in your hands, and rub the palms together so that the product spreads evenly on your hands. Apply it on the length in the downward direction. It will help you achieve smooth locks.

Keep It For A Few Minutes

The hair conditioner needs to rest on the locks so that it can start working. Therefore, after applying the product, leave it for at least 2-3 minutes before rinsing off. It will help tame the frizz and prevent hair fall due to breakage.

Rinse Every Inch Of Strands

When you have done waiting, rinse your hair thoroughly. It is one of the biggest hair care mistakes. It will help you get rid of any slipperiness. A pro tip for every woman is to comb her hair before washing. It will detangle the locks and prevent hair fall during washing and conditioning.

Myths Around Hair Conditioning


Conditioner Makes Hair Oily

Not rinsing properly or applying excess shampoo or oil can also lead to oily hair even after the wash. Use the right amount of every product and follow thorough rinsing. You will never complain about this issue again.

Conditioner Is Applied Only To Tips

No! Conditioner is not only for the tips, but it for the entire length, except for the roots and scalp. If you apply it from the base of the scalp to the tips, you will extract the maximum nutrients from the product. It will also make your locks shiny and smooth.
