Finding the best hair conditioner to help to repair damaged hair can be challenging. Where do you start the search? Here’s everything you need to know to make the right choice for your hair type. And, before you know it, those strands will be back to their best.
A good conditioner will protect against damage and help hair bounce back to its natural best. To determine the best hair conditioner for your hair, it’s important to understand these 2 things:
- Your hair type
- Your hair’s condition
Knowing your hair type means understanding how your hair should look and feel when it’s in top form and not under stress. Then take a look at the current state of your hair to determine its condition. We will guide you through both.
So, first thing’s first…
Types of hair
If you’re not sure of your hair type, take a look in the mirror think about this:
- Shape: is your hair wavy, curly or straight?
- Density: is your hair thick or thin?
A quick way to check your hair’s density is to take a section of hair from the front and pull it to one side. If you can see your scalp, you have thin hair, if not you’re in the thick category. Easy, right?
If your hair’s on the thinner side, help leave it feeling full and voluminous with our Aussie Volume conditioner treatment. A treat infused with Australian Kakadu plum that’ll leave those strands feeling full, thick and healthy in no time.
Now, if you’re unsure on shape, a simple way to think about it is if your hair bends. If there are some slight bends in your hair, it’s wavy. If the bends are more defined, it’s curly. If there are no bends, you have straight hair.
A hair care routine for luscious curls is different from a routine aimed to strengthen straight hair. That’s because there are different products, with different ingredients, that support different hair types.
For smooth, shiny hair, our 3 Miracle Oil Smooth is a lightweight hair conditioner treatment with Australian Macadamia nut oil that protects hair from everyday wear and tear.
If frizz is your foe, our Chill the Frizz collection, infused with Australian hemp seed extract’s is just what you need!
Wavy hair? Our Miracle Moist conditioner supports those curves so you can stay carefree and focus on the things that matter. Not sure how to care for wavy hair? We’ve got that covered, too.
Finding the best hair conditioner for your hair type also depends on your hair’s condition.
So, now you know whether your hair’s curly, wavy or straight, thin or thick, let’s take a look at the different types of damage before you and your hair snap!
Types of damage
Colour damage. Colouring hair will cause damage, especially if it’s coloured often. The chemicals used to change the colour of your strands, can weaken the hair’s structure, causing it to look dull, lifeless and even break if left untreated. Our Colour Mate conditioner with Aussie peach quandong is our choice of hair conditioner for bleached hair, or hair that’s been exposed to many colour treatments.
Over-styling. Well, we’ve got to look our best! Sometimes that means taking to tresses with straighteners or curling tongs, followed by a good dousing of product. And yep, you guessed it, all of this looks good in the short term, but can cause long-term damage. Dry, lifeless hair? This could be the problem. Don’t worry, try our choice of hair conditioner for dry hair - Aussie Macadamia infused Miracle Moist conditioner and 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Treatment.
Split ends. A sign your hair’s struggling to keep up is if the ends start to fray and split. That’s when it’s time to reach for 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Deep Treatment, our iconic damage repair conditioner.
