Condition With Care

The first few inches of your hair is only six months old — so it’s actually very healthy. Since your scalp produces sebum, which is a natural conditioner, you don’t need to add additional conditioners near the roots of your hair. If you’re going to apply conditioner, you should focus on the lower half of your hair. The lower sections would be the older ones, which tend to be drier and possibly more damaged.

Before you buy conditioner, be sure to read the label. You want to avoid conditioners containing dimethicone, a heavy silicone that gives hair shine but can weigh it down and kill volume. Look for cyclomethicone instead. Other ingredients to avoid include lanolin and petrolatum, a these can weigh down your hair and attract dirt.
