Shampoo Vs Conditioner honestly there is no simple answer as to which is more important. Both are very important parts of your hair care routine.
The main difference is that shampoos contain cleansing agents to cleanse and remover dirt and build up. While conditioners don’t contain any cleansing agents they do contain conditioner agents. Some mild shampoos can include conditioning agents similar to those found in conditioners.
So why do we need to use both or do we need to use both?
Shampoo is great and we all need to cleanse our how either regularly or less often. The most important part about shampoo is the how to! ONLY shampoo your scalp, you don't need to create a big bubble sensation all the way to the ends of your hair. In fact shampoo your ends can dry then our and even damage your ends. So still with the scalp only. If you use a lot of styling products or don't wash regularly you may need to shampoo twice - but only the scalp.
Everyone needs condition and by everyone we mean everyone! Some people even skip the shampoo and go straight to conditioner and use it has a co-wash. This is simply using conditioner as your shampoo, scalp and all massage in and rinse. We have had many clients switch to this method only to find there hair much more conditioned and healthier. Co-washing is not for everyone, for example people with oil scalp will not benefit from it. Also people with fine hair should avoid applying conditioner to there scalp and concentrate on the mid lengths and ends.
The main thing with both shampoos and conditioner is to make sure you are using a good quality product that is the right type for you hair. What you hair might need now from a shampoo and conditioner may not be what it needs when you need to purchase more, so don't be afraid to ask your hairdresser what exactly your hair now.
