Let's get started...

One way to care for your hair is to condition it. A conditioner revitalizes hair. But before you purchase the first conditioner you see on the supermarket shelf, know first the different types of conditioners available and exactly what type of conditioner you need.

For example, if your hair is prone to breakage or gets easily damaged, you need a conditioner type known as a "reconstructor," which has protein as its main ingredient for strengthening hair. If you have lackluster, limp hair, you need an acidifier, a conditioner that has a pH of 2.five to three.Five, to close your hair's cuticle layer so you're left with a more shiny and elastic hair. A moisturizing conditioner is greatest for dry hair since this type of conditioner contains humectants, compounds that attract and retain moisture in your hair. For hair that is regularly subjected to heat (blow dryers, hot rollers or hot irons), use a conditioner type called thermal protector, which contains polymers that absorb and distribute heat and protect your hair from heat damage. For tangle-prone hair, a detangler will create a "shield" of polymers on your hair shaft and close hair cuticles that cause tangling.

Depending on your hair's condition, deep condition your hair once a month or once a week. Deep conditioning helps make your hair healthy by strengthening it and making it more elastic. For a cheap but natural and effective conditioner you can make that's suitable for all hair types, mix a cup olive oil with one egg and half a lemon to an even consistency. Apply the mixture to your scalp and hair strands, let it stand for about 30 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
