Cleansing conditioners are the latest beauty trend to hit the shelves, not only are people busier, but we’re all becoming a lot more savvy about what’s good for our hair and what isn’t – so now there’s no need to buy two separate products for washing your hair; you can simply buy a single super duper one instead. It’s a much needed addition to your hair care routine.
Cleansing conditioners are the answer to many healthy hair questions, helping to keep your hair nourished and balanced. Although oily hair isn’t the best look, if you don’t manage to maintain any oil at all, your hair will be left looking limp, dry and dull. On the other end of the spectrum, too much and you’ll look like an Italian film star from the 60’s.
So what’s the solution?
Cleansing conditioners are made with shampoo-free formulas that don’t strip your hair of its essential oils and cleanse your hair too. Your locks are left smooth, shiny as lusciously hydrated. There are little to no sulphates, so it naturally leaves your hair tamed and less frizzy with the added bonus of extra softness.
Are they just for damaged, dry hair?
No, cleansing conditioners can be used for aging and curly hair; as curls prevent all the natural oils from reaching the ends.
