Conditioners: Get silky soft locks
Thought all hair conditioners were the same? It’s time to think again because the Sephora hair care collection contains products aimed at all hair types and needs. A quality hair conditioner is a valuable addition to your bathroom cabinet because it protects your hair in a way shampoo that doesn’t. While shampoo opens up and cleans the hair follicle, it doesn’t moisturise your hair or add extra hydration. Using a hydrating conditioner after shampoo will not only moisturise your hair, it will use a blend of active ingredients to soften your hair, too. Why use a moisturising conditioner when you have naturally oily hair? Why bother with a treatment conditioner if your hair isn’t suffering from damage? See where we’re going with this? Ensure your hair conditioner is matched to your needs and you’re bound to see better results. The Sephora range includes deep conditioner, thickener conditioner, hydrating conditioner, treatment conditioner, volumising conditioner, repair conditioner, treatment conditioner and plenty more. Could one of the following better meet your needs than your current hair conditioner?
How to use hair conditioner
It may seem straightforward but if you’re using conditioner for the first time, there are a couple of tricks you should know. Applying conditioner is different to using shampoo because the focus isn’t on creating a lather around your scalp. Instead, you should apply conditioner to the ends of your hair and the length. Too much conditioner around your roots can leave them feeling greasy. The aim is to moisturise your hair so be sure to focus on the end sections which are most at risk of splitting. You should leave conditioner on your hair for at least two minutes before washing it off. This gives the formula plenty of time to moisturise and soften your hair. Ensure you wash it away with warm water for a soothing treatment.
Different types of conditioner: which should you pick?
Ever considered adding a conditioner to your self-care routine? Head to the supermarket and you’ll see hundreds of types lining the shelves. Which one should you go for? The words ‘moisturising conditioner’ and ‘volumising conditioner’ may jump out at you, followed by ‘leave in conditioner’ and ‘treatment conditioner’. While these types of products all have slightly different functions and ingredients, they all have the same overriding mission: to soften your hair and leave it feeling healthy. Depending on the condition of your hair and the type of results you want to see, there are a couple of conditioners that might suit you:
If you suffer from dry hair, consider a moisturising conditioner or a hydrating conditioner. These products give tired hair a new lease of life with extra nourishing ingredients. The Verb Hydrating Conditioner from the Sephora collection uses quinoa protein, Vitamin B5 and amino acids to expertly smooth hair and add shine.
For ladies looking for a volume boost, opt for a conditioner that adds body to the roots of your hair. Improving strength to each individual hair is a great way of adding friction to your locks which in time can lead to more lustrous, volumised locks. Use a volumising conditioner to boost the look of thinning hair and create the appearance of a fuller, healthier head. Many of the Sephora volumising conditioners include luxurious ingredients like sea salt and natural algae extract to recreate the look of tousled, beach hair. The Volume Conditioner by Verb is a bestseller that uses vegetable keratin proteins and sunflower seed extract to provide volume, strength and hydration.
Treat your hair to a deeper, longer treatment with a leave-in conditioner. These highly moisturising formulas improve manageability between shampoos by softening your hair and gently easing away tangles. For smooth, healthy and manageable hair, leave-in conditioner is every man's must-have.
Hair that’s been damaged by the sun, styling devices or too much product may be in need of a little extra TLC. That’s where repair conditioner comes in. With double the kick of regular conditioners, it blasts dry hair with a nourishing blend of hydrating ingredients. Tangles don't stand a chance when up against repair conditioner!
Treatment conditioner can prevent damage when used regularly. Unlike a repair conditioner which works to combat damage that has already been done, a treatment conditioner strengthens your hair before it gets to that stage. One of the key benefits of treatment conditioner is its ability to prevent breakages. This means no more dry hair that snaps at the first sign of stress. Instead, hair remains flexible and able to withstand brushing, styling and external factors like the weather. Brittle hair, be gone!
If you’re hoping to soften your hair, let your wishes become a reality. Natural keratin in hydrating conditioners ensures that intense moisture and natural shine is delivered to every strand of hair. Many products in the Sephora collection include essential vitamins including pro-vitamin b5 for a healthy dose of amino acid. Moisturise your hair the same way you moisturise your skin and it's sure to look more lustrous for it!
SOS rescue conditioner
Heat styling products, pollution and sun exposure are all known to damage your hair. Luckily, it’s rarely too late to turn around damage when using the right treatment conditioner. SOS hair conditioner ticks all the boxes when it comes to protecting, repairing and adding shine back to damaged locks. It’ll soften your hair and boost your confidence!
Thickening conditioner targets every strand in a bid to improve hair health and strengthen locks. Not only will it target split ends to help improve hair health, thickening conditioner will also add body to your hair and strengthen it to last the test of time. Use thickening conditioner daily to see gradual, lasting results.
For a hair conditioner that will not only clean your hair but help keep its colour bright and vibrant, invest in a colour-save conditioner. Even light shades like blonde will stay bold and beautiful thanks to the carefully-selected formula which expertly locks colour into the follicles. The Sephora colour-save hair conditioners contain UV protection to stop hair bleaching in the sun, while also protecting it from harmful damage. You can’t hope for more than that!
