Because it adds a lubricant to the hair shaft, a hair conditioner will do the following: * It will make your hair easier to comb and manage. * It will impart luster to your hair. EFFECT OF HAIR CONDITIONER Q. How does a hair conditioner Work? Does it affect the hair fOllicle or just the surface of the hair? A. A hair conditioner supplies body luster and bounce to a hair shaft that has been damaged by excessive tinting, bleaching, teasing, permanent waving, or straightening. An Overprocessed hair shaft has a COarse, Porus texture and often suffers from a shortage of natural oils. A hair conditioner supplies additional oils and, in effect, fills in the gaps in a coarse hair strand. The activity of the hair follicle is influenced by physiological factors such as diet, general health, and age. An externally applied product like a hair conditioner, therefore, cannot affect it.
