Just like shampoo, conditioner is a fundamental step in your hair care regime. While shampoo is great at removing dirt and grime, shampoo also removes your natural sebum. Why is removing sebum a problem? Sebum is the body’s natural oil, and is vital for hydrated, healthy hair! Therefore, your conditioner’s main job is to replenish the moisture taken from your hair during shampooing. But that’s not all! Conditioner also protects your hair from damage by coating the hair cuticles, smoothing the hair, detangling those pesky knots, and making it soft and shiny.

There’s no right or wrong when it comes to how often you should condition your hair – it ultimately depends on your hair texture, length, colour and the frequency you use styling tools. Generally speaking, you can use conditioner every time you shampoo to replace the hair’s natural oils. Those with naturally dry hair may need a little more assistance to help retain moisture evenly across their hair, so a hydrating conditioner is recommended. Alternatively, those with oily hair need only to use a small amount of conditioner, while those with super fine hair should use a light conditioner that won’t weight their hair down.
The best conditioner for curly or frizzy hair is one that locks in moisture to keep your locks extra sleek and shiny. However, not all curls are created equal, so it’s best to determine your unique type of curl before selecting a conditioner. Those with curly, coarse or frizzy hair may benefit from a conditioner with a buttery, thick consistency for extra hydration, while finer curls should use a light, foam conditioner to avoid weighing down their hair. A popular conditioner used by curly girls of Australia is AG Hair Natural Boost Conditioner.
