It’s time to start preparing for an Australian Summer and we’re asking you “Are you conditioning your hair enough?” It can be difficult to know how many times to wash and condition your hair a week, given that it can start to wreak havoc on your colour and depending on your shampoo and conditioner, can create product build up.
But as we head into long days by the beach and pool parties, it’s important to know how often you should be conditioning your hair. Believe it or not, this will depend on your hair and there isn’t a one size fits all answer. Check out the tips below that best suit you!
Do you have thin hair?
If you have thin hair you want to condition every other day. This is more so to help with detangling your main to help with breakage. You may want to try a volumising conditioner such as evo bride of gluttony volume conditioner and comb through gently in the shower.
Or we absolutely love Kevin Murphy Young Again Oil. You can use this once you are out of the shower. All you need is a small pump, smoothed onto the hair, then after 2 minutes, gently comb through.
Do you have thick hair?
If you have thick hair you should be conditioning every day. This doesn’t mean you have to shampoo every time, but you should be trying to wet your hair and treat it with a little TLC everyday – especially if you love the beach. Once a month you may even want to try a deep conditioning hair mask such as the evo the great hydrator moisture mask. It’s deeply moisturising and helps to prevent frizz.
Do you have coloured hair?
If you have coloured hair it’s imperative you treat your hair with a deep conditioning treatment once a week as well as conditioning. This is because hair that's been coloured or bleached has been stripped and its ability to retain moisture isn’t as good as uncoloured hair. Never fear, you don’t have to stop colouring your hair!
