How Conditioner Benefits Your Hair

April 15, 2022

If your hair seems dry and frizzy and doesn’t seem to want to cooperate with you it may simply need a little TLC. When your hair is dry it often tangles easily and won’t hold your hairstyle as well as it should. Deep conditioning treatments can solve these issues and make your hair more manageable. But do you know how conditioners benefit your hair? 15

So, how does conditioner work? To understand how conditioner works, first, we have to understand the structure of the hair. Each strand has two parts: the inner layer called the cortex, and the outer layer called the cuticle. The cells of the cuticle stack together like tiles forming a protective barrier.

The cuticle cells of healthy hair are stacked tight against the other to protect the cortex from environmental stressors. When strands have been damaged the bonds of the cuticle cells loosen and the cells raise up leaving holes where the cortex is exposed. This creates a rough surface that tangles and frizzes easily.

This is where conditioner really shines as a hair care superhero. Conditioner saves the day by smoothing down the cells of the cuticle. This relieves dryness and eliminates frizz, leaving hair smooth and shiny. With each strand’s protective layer locked back into place, hair is strengthened and protected from further breakage or damage.

Deep conditioning treatments and masks penetrate even deeper into the hair shaft to replenish lost moisture and strengthen the cortex before locking down the cuticle to seal strands and prevent future damage. Deep conditioning restores luster and shine, improves elasticity for less breakage, enhances body, and leaves hair feeling silky and soft. Deep conditioning regularly with a product like Unite’s 7SECONDS Masque will keep your strands in optimal condition.
