Cause of Dry Hair: The Important Role of Conditioner




Conditioner smoothes your hair cuticle after shampooing, locking in moisture and adding shine. If you don’t condition, your hair cuticle is likely to raise, allowing for more rapid loss of H20.

The first facts to know about the makeup of your hair is that there are  three layers. These 3 layers comprise of the  medulla, cortex & cuticle. The medulla is the innermost layer followed by the Cortex, which is up to 90% of your hair strand and where natural hair color is defined and held.  Lastly is the cuticle, the protector!

A healthy cuticle will lay smoothly over the cortex  (“think pinecone.”).   If the cuticle is damaged or harmful substances have been absorbed into the cortex your hair will most likely appear dull and lifeless – not to mention the increase of breakage.

Healthy Cuticle Maintenance

How do we keep that cuticle laying down and looking healthy? We can help rebuild hair by using conditioners that have an acidic ph level of 7.  Acids contain an abundance of hydrogen, which keeps those cuticles laying smooth for that lustrous shiny hair we all strive for.  Additionally conditioners containing amino acids (protein)  and oils will help to rebuild your hair from the inside out!
