Leave-in Conditioners

Leave-in conditioners can be in liquid sprays, lotions, and creams.
-For thick, coarse or curly hair use a creamy leave-in conditioner. 
-For fine hair use a lotion or spray leave-in.
Leave-in conditioners can be protein based, moisturize based or balanced depending on the ingredients it contains.
-When your hair feels too soft or weak you should use a protein leave in conditioner for strength. Also, use it after highlights and bleach.
 -When your hair feels rough or dry use a moisturizing conditioner. Also use it during the winter season, when your heater is on, but don’t forget to use a humidifier as well.
Almost all professional leave-in conditioners have pH between 4.5 and 5.5

pH of the hair

pH(potential hydrogen)
The pH scale is used from 0(acidic) to7(neutral) to14(alkaline).
Virgin Hair pH=3.67
Scalp pH=5.5
Water pH=7.0
Skin pH=5.5
Pediatric shampoos “no-tear” pH=7.0

Alkaline pH (any product applied on hair that has pH higher than 3.67) may increase the negative electrical charge of the hair fiber surface and increase friction between the fibers. This may lead to cuticle damage and fiber breakage. It is a reality and not a myth that lower pH of shampoos may cause less frizzing for generating less negative static electricity on the fiber surface.
This is one of the reasons why we use conditioners.  Conditioners have positively charged polymers (cations) that will quench those negative charges.  They deposit on the hair and at the same time they provide lubrication to the fibers among other things
After using a shampoo of pH higher than 5.5, conditioner of low-pH should be applied so that besides lubricating, the electrostatic forces can be neutralized, the frizz effect eliminated and cuticle scales may be sealed.

About Clarifying Shampoo

 Clarifying shampoo- aka purifying, detox and deep-cleansing shampoo.
Even your standard shampoo and conditioner can build up their own residue over time.
If you use styling products, dry shampoo, or spend time in chlorinated pools, then use clarifying shampoo once per two weeks. If you have dry coloured hair, limit it to once a month, since clarifying formulas can strip the colour.
Without a doubt, use it before you are going to the hair salon to colour your hair.
