Ah, conditioner. The essential to any hair care is a good, high-quality conditioner to smooth out and hydrate your hair. But not all conditioners are built equally, and not all of them are going to answer your specific needs.
We all know one size fits none. So stop trying to buy a conditioner if you’re not sure it’s going to work for you. It’s time to step up your conditioner game and make it work for you. A personalized conditioner crafted especially for your unique hair is the key to the perfect, balanced mane.
The Dangers of Cheap Conditioner
We’ve all been there. When you’re in a pinch, hair care seems like a far cry from the top of your list of expenses. In tough times, we’ve all reached for that cheap bottle of conditioner from the grocery store, drug store, and yes, even the dollar store.
While these conditioners can seem like lifesavers when you literally don’t have the funds, they can cause long-term, lasting damage to your hair that will ultimately cost you more down the line.
Take a look at the back of that cheap bottle of conditioner and you’ll see some very foreign, unpronounceable ingredients. Petroleum jelly, sodium lauryl sulfate, polyethylene glycol, and benzene—they don’t sound… great, huh? The truth is, these ingredients lead to some serious problems for your hair and your overall health.
Aside from the nasty buildup and moisture loss for your hair, these chemicals are listed as actual toxins and can lead to hormonal issues and even cancer. Not trying to scare you, but that cheap conditioner could be costing you a lot later in life.
This is why it can be worth the extra few dollars to invest in a conditioner that is made for you with healthy, more natural ingredients.
Why You Should Take Conditioner Personally
No matter what your hair issues are, you deserve a conditioner that is designed for you. Even with the best conditioners, they don’t do any good at all if they don’t address your unique issues. Getting your own Prose Conditioner can be a worthy investment if you have any of the following issues.
Dry, Dull Hair
If you miss the luster of your hair from years ago, you need your conditioner to hydrate those strands. Since your dullness can be caused by a myriad of different issues, not all dull hair is alike.
Things like climate, water temperature, diet, and exercise can affect the sheen of your hair. The first step to more moisturized hair is water, by the way. And since we’re on the topic, you should wash your conditioner out in cold water for a more glowing look and better health for your hair overall.
A personalized conditioner that’s made for your unique causes of dry hair is essential. If your hair is dull and dry from a cold, dry climate, your needs are going to be different from someone who lives in a place high in humidity, and your conditioner should reflect that.
Serious Damage Control
If you’ve put your hair through a lot (we’ve been there, you’re not alone) you need to restore its health to make sure it lasts longer and stays healthy.
If your damage comes from dying your hair over and over again, it’s going to need slightly different care from those of us who bleach our hair or use a lot of hot tools on it. Customized conditioners are made to address your source of damage, to reverse that trauma you’ve inflicted on your hair.
Every Hair is Different
And your conditioner should be, too.
