DRY CONDITIONER: WHAT IS IT FOR AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
ALTHOUGH MOST PEOPLE MAY BE FAMILIAR WITH DRY SHAMPOO AND HOW IT WORKS,...
...dry conditioner is less talked about but equally important for maintaining hair in between washes.
How Does Dry Conditioner Work?
Dry conditioner works in a similar way to dry shampoo. You can use it between washes to freshen up your hair. A benefit to using dry conditioner is that it conditions hair without making your hair look wet.
However, while dry shampoo primarily works to absorb oils from the scalp, as well as add volume and texture to hair, dry conditioner is used in other ways, such as:
Reducing static buildup (such as during winter when the air is drier)
Reducing the need to heat style, which can lead to dryness and hair breakage
Adding softness and shine
Providing conditioning with oils and other moisture-rich ingredients like plant extracts
Dry conditioners, like dry shampoos, are used typically as a leave-in product on dry hair. You can use dry shampoo and conditioner together or use dry conditioner by itself to extend your style.
While dry shampoo is used primarily to soak up oil from your scalp, dry conditioners can be used at any time to add in hydration or as a finishing spray to your style. If you’re between washes and prefer not to get hair wet, a dry conditioner may be a good option for keeping hair well-nourished while preserving your style.
Plus, with dry conditioner, there’s no need to coat hair from the scalp downward. Use it from about mid-shaft down to your hair’s ends to revitalize your look.
