Why are conditioners needed?
Our hair is exposed to a range of factors which can damage or weaken the hair fibre, such as:
Heat styling
Chemical treatments
Grooming practices

Damage can lead to the hair looking dull, feeling rough and being difficult to manage. Conditioners are essential of our cleansing routines in maintaining the integrity of the hair, by smoothing the hair cuticle and leaving the hair feeling softer and shinier, helping to restore a healthy hair condition. Aside from conditioning benefits, conditioners can also deliver additional benefits such as UV protection, colour retention, anti-frizz, strengthening and more, catering to individual hair types and needs.
