If your stylist has ever told you conditioners like Pantene might wreck your hair over time, here’s why:
Many store-bought conditioners contain silicone, which coats the hair to make it smooth and shiny. Unfortunately, this only makes the hai look healthy. Silicone blocks moisture from reaching the hair shaft, which can cause strands to become dry and brittle over time.
A far better option is gelatin, which contains keratin proteins that actually bind with hair to strengthen it. Unlike whole proteins such as egg yolk, which have difficulty bonding with hair, the partially cooked proteins found in gelatin bond easily. Gelatin adheres especially well to damaged areas, but also nourishes the entire strand as well. It helps to smooth the hair cuticle, boost shine and reduce breakage.
