Hair Conditioners - Best Picks for Different Hair Types

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

It has never occurred to me to use a conditioner after shampooing, but my roommate suggested it because I blow dry my hair every day. Is a hair conditioner necessary or just an added expense?


Conditioned response

Dear Conditioned response,

While a hair conditioner is not absolutely necessary, it can help protect hair from the heat from a blow dryer.

In general, conditioners can help increase the shine of your hair, help dry hair, oily hair, damaged hair, and detangle. There are also conditioners formulated for colored or permed hair.

In addition, there are hair styling products that are specifically designed to help protect hair from the heat of blow drying, flat ironing, or curling irons. There are many different types of conditioners, styling sprays and hair gels, so you would need to read the label on each one to determine the best one for your type of hair and follow the directions for best results.


The best conditioner for differenty types of hair were selected by

1. NORMAL: Garnier Fructis

2. FINE: Pantene Pro-V Flat to Volume

3. DRY: John Frieda Frizz-Ease

4. COLOR-TREATED: Redken Color Extend

5. AFRICAN-AMERICAN: DevaCurl No-Poo Zero Lather
