A conditioner is more effective if you leave it on longer. True or False. Take this quiz to know now!
1. Conditioning the hair before shampooing can nourish fine, damaged, colored or greasy hair
Answer - True
Conditioning your hair before you shampoo can up the nutritive value of fine hair without pulling it down. While smoothening out the hair cuticle, conditioning can help to repair hair fibers if you do it before applying shampoo to your hair. Only if the hairs are not clean due to dust or pollution, then do a quick mild shampoo first then condition the hairs, shampoo again to rinse off the heavy conditioner for bouncy hairs.
2. A conditioner is more effective if you leave it on longer
Answer - False
It's not how long you keep the conditioner on your hair that is important, but how well you coat each strand of your hair is what matters. That's why you need to spend a few minutes of your time working the product evenly through your hair.
3. Conditioning doesn't allow your hair to breathe
Answer - Even if a small quantity of silicone residue gets left behind on the hair, it doesn't hamper the entry of moisture into the hair shaft. Depending on the environs, whether it's humid or dry, it'll absorb moisture or lose out moisture.
4. Which of the technique is the right one when it comes to deep-conditioning your hair?
Finger comb the product thoroughly through your hair for complete penetration
Utilize a shower comb to spread the conditioner through your hair
Both of the above
None of the above
Answer - C
In order for the hair conditioner to fully penetrate and coat your hair, distributing it evenly over your hair strands is a must.
5. What's the ideal deep-conditioning treatment time?
Answer - A
Once you've applied the conditioner all over your hair, wrap a towel that's been heated in a microwave around your head for 20 minutes. Doing this will help the conditioner to infiltrate deeper into your hair shaft.
