Hair Conditioners For Every Asian Hair Type
Just as your skincare regimen would be incomplete without a moisturiser, similarly, your hair care routine would only be half effective without a hair conditioner. Using a hair conditioner is one way to replenish moisture, sheen and life to your locks. Skipping conditioner on the regular could eventually lead to frizz, hair breakage and split ends. You especially need to condition your hair if you regularly use heat styling tools and colour your hair.
The best way to use a hair conditioner is after you have rinsed out your shampoo. Comb the product through the lengths using your fingers, staying clear of your scalp. Not all conditioners are made equal though, so we’ve rounded up the most suitable ones for every hair type.
