Will Conditioner Help Thinning Hair?

Noticing your hair is thinning is a quick way to ruin anyone's day, but there are things you can do to help fight against a receding hairline. Too much shampooing can leave your hair stripped of essential oils so it's probably a good idea to ditch the shampoo a few times a week and use a cleansing conditioner instead. You'll still get the clean feeling you'd get from shampooing, but you'll gradually notice more volume and stronger hair.

'Why am I suffering from thinning hair?' I hear you ask; A number of things can contribute. Stress can play a massive part and it's that age old tale of the vicious circle. Feel stressed = your hair will fall out. Notice your hair is falling out = get stressed about it. A quick win when it comes to looking after your hair is to keep check on what you are eating. Foods high in protein, Vitamin C, Zinc, Potassium and Iron are extremely important for strength and keeping those follicles in good condition.

How to Use Conditioner

Shampoo and conditioner, for maximum benefit, should be kept separate. If you’re looking for something quick and easy, grab a 2in1 shampoo and body wash and use a conditioner on it’s own. To use, put a small amount into your palm and apply directly to your hair after shampooing. If you naturally have quite greasy hair, you might wanna avoid massaging too much into your scalp and focus on the ends instead.

Instructions on the bottle will recommend leaving the product on for a few minutes. While it is important to follow these instructions as closely as possible and you'll see the best results by leaving it to work its magic for slightly longer, if you are in a rush, feel free to wash it off as soon as you have massaged it into your scalp. Most good conditioners get to work straight away so it doesn't have to be as time-consuming.

If you get bored waiting for the two to three minutes to pass while your conditioner works in, time it so you can shave your beard, wash your body or do anything else that is part of your normal routine.

Different Types of Hair Conditioning

There are four different types of hair conditioning: Regular Conditioner, Leave-in Conditioner, Hair Repair, Deep Conditioners Each type carries its own benefits and will suit different hair types better, but regular conditioning should apply to everyone.

Regular Conditioner

These are just your everyday, rinse-out conditioners that you'll probably buy from the supermarket. The benefits these carry tend to focus on moisturising the scalp and strengthening the hair. Ideally you would use it every time you shampoo. You will start to notice a change in the look and texture of your hair after around two weeks of continuous use.

Leave-in Conditioner

While the benefits of a leave-in are pretty much the same as a regular conditioner, it does have its pros. The main difference is that instead of applying and rinsing out, you leave it on your hair until your next wash. For greasy hair, this may not be the best option but for any other hair types, you'll probably find it's a bit less maintenance.

The great thing about a leave-in is that it doubles up as a styling product. It will help to control your mane, de-frizz and give a more textured finish. Not convinced? Well you can still add your normal product on top of a leave-in for more oomph.
