Mischo Beauty School: Hair Conditioners 101

Which conditioner should you buy? Well it depends on the condition and texture of your hair. Your stylist will know when to use an instant conditioner for detangling only, or when to use a moisturizing or protein conditioning treatment. Let's understand the differences:

1. Instant conditioners/rinses, left on for only a few minutes, smooth the hair's cuticle which detangles the hair.

2. Moisturizing conditioners, which are allowed to work for 10-20 minutes, restore moisture to the hair, balance the hair's pH, and smooth/coat the hair shaft resulting in control and shine.

3. Protein conditioners are used to strengthen the hair and repair split ends. They are formulated to replace the protein lost in the hair. They should be used according to the manufacturer's directions. Improper use may result in breakage.

Love your hair.

Any questions, comments, thoughts?

A lot of people I know love Ojon, but when I used their deep conditioner, it made my hair spell like a rotten corpse, and my hair didn't feel so great after. I use moisturizing conditioners though, but a great protein Conditioner is GPB by Aubrey. Hugs, DE

Thanks for your rec! :)

Good info! Although I use both a treatment AND a normal detangling conditioner every day, just for the hell of it. =D

I really like the Ojon ultra hydrating conditioner...great stuff. I have the restorative treatment also. When I used their special Tawaka all purpose hair treatment / lotion as a pre poo, my hair was so soft.

To "product junkie diva": Overall my results were good... it was just the scent of the Restorative Hair Treatment that's going to take some getting use to... oh and I used the ultra hydrating conditioner too and I liked it! And that says a lot since most of my relaxer is all grown out!
