Recommendations For Hair Conditioner

I was just wondering if you have any tips on a moisturizing conditioner to use. I heard that I should only us conditioner so I have been for a handful of years. A couple months back I dyed my hair and I didn't like it so I dyed it back right away. Its been a couple months sense then but my hair isn't as soft as it used to be.

I've tried many conditioners, the last two I used were Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner and Mane and Tail. They both seem to work great, but I would like to see better. I want soft, moist, silky, smooth hair that isn't greasy or dry.

After I used dye remover on my hair, it was fried no matter what conditioner I used. I wore it tied back in a bun and covered with a decorative hankie. I let it grow in grey. Try this sometime if you want the be the center of attention. I was the talk of the office for days, and days. When it grew long enough to look OK, my daughter cut it for me. The new hair had better texture than I ever had before.

As a retired hair stylist, I can tell you that the best conditioner is the one most salons use, Balsam.You can even get it at a "Dollar Store"! Use lots, let it stay on for at least 2 minutes and rinse with WARM, NOT HOT, water. The conditioners that you buy, which are scented, have perfumes, and sometimes, alcohol, in them. AVOID these as they dry out your hair!

Have you tried deep conditioning - there are a lot of reputable kinds in the stores. You put it on and leave it for 15-20 minutes before rinsing out. It's thicker than in-and-out conditioners and really helps with damage. Use it no more than twice a week at first, then once a week. Using too often will gunk up your hair. Keep in mind that hair is dead once it emerges from your scalp, so it can't actually "heal." But you can repair it temporarily until more healthy hair grows out.

I always loved Videl Sassoons Combination Finishing Rinse and Conditioner to be the one that brought my hair back to baby softness. It's a bit expensive, but when you think of it as two products in one, it's worth it. Good luck!!

As a herbalist I recommend using alma hair oil. it is made from Indian gooseberries. Use it as a treatment & you won't believe the wonders it does to your hair. It is found at all Indian grocery stores. This is the secret of Indian women for centuries!

try and get some coconut oil, it is a solid block of white substance which literally melts in your hands and you work it in to your hair, also try olive oil or almond oil any kind of warm oil , henna wax is also good and it comes in colourless versions,

When my hair was long and I beat it up a lot, I would mix vita E oil, liquid protein vegetable glycerin, a dash of eucalyptus with peanut or palm oil in a shot glass. Massage well into hair and scalp, wrap in a hot towel for 15-30 minutes and wash with a mild shampoo, lathering only once, followed by a humectant spray. Don't wash daily, try twice weekly and as my gran used to say, brush, brush, brush that hair, it WORKS.

Infusium is a leave in treatment it works great. You can get it at most stores. Also leave in condition, generic of Sebastian's potion 9 is great. Paul Mitchell's the conditioner is leave in also good. They do make generics of paul mitchell and they are good too. If you have a sally's beauty supply, they will have all of these.The very best is Redkin, more expensive but worth it. Extreme, deep fuel is the best and they also have shampoo and conditioner for fine hair, chemically treated, coarse, etc.

I will tell you that nothing in the kitchen will work.The proteins in eggs and mayo or cooking oils have bigger proteins that can not penetrate your hair shaft.Use things made for your hair.REdkin as I said is the best.

I disagree with the first poster. The proteins from mayonnaise does penetrate the hair. I use it all the time, and I can definitely tell the difference after I have used it. Just make sure to use regular mayonnaise and not mayonnaise dressing because the dressing will dry your hair out. Let the mayonnaise sit on your hair for 20-30 minutes (with a heating cap, if you choose). Then, rinse the mayonnaise out with a mixture of water and apple cider vinegar. This recipe works great for people with fine hair.

Because of the chemicals that you used on your hair, it is permanently damaged, although as one lady here said, the new growth is perfectly fine. (Called virgin hair.) These tips are all good ones, but until your new hair grows back, you will have to deal with the damage done. I personally am not a fan of kitchen products for my hair. Experts have spent long hours in a laboratory testing and re-testing products that are good for the hair, so I would rather use what they have produced. I like Paul Mitchell. Also, I would try the Balsam that was suggested, especially if it can be bought in the dollar store. I wonder if it is the "Wella Balsam" that was used almost exclusively years ago in the beauty shops.
