In ancient times, women wore long hair and used rinsing lotions to rinse their hair to make it look smooth. With the increasing damage to modern hair, it is difficult for rinse lotions to meet all the ingredients needed to repair damaged hair. Consumers therefore prefer quick-acting products for special care restorative solutions. This is how conditioners are created, which close up the epidermal scales of the hair, making it smooth and combable, healthy and soft, and more effective than rinsing lotions in replenishing the hair and repairing damaged hair.
It is generally believed that hair has a negative electrical charge. After shampooing with shampoo (mainly anionic detergent, soap also belongs to this category), it will make the hair with more negative charge, thus generating static electricity, resulting in combing inconvenience. After using conditioner, the main component of which is cationic quaternary ammonium salt can neutralize the molecules with anions remaining on the surface of the hair, and leave a uniform single molecule film, this wonderful layer will bring a series of benefits to the hair: soft, shiny, easy to comb, anti-static, and make the mechanical damage to the hair and damage caused by chemical perm, electric perm, hair dye by a certain degree of repair.
The surface layer of healthy hair consists of a complete set of hair scales and natural secretion of oil constitutes the protective film of hair, too much washing, perming and dyeing, sun exposure will destroy this natural protective film, resulting in the loss of moisture from the cortex, making the hair dry, lose elasticity and softness. Only with regular use of conditioner can a protective film be formed to protect the hair from damage.
Hair conditioners are mainly composed of surfactants, co-surfactants, cationic conditioning agents, lipid enhancers, oils, chelating agents, preservatives, colors, flavors and other active ingredients. Among them, surfactants mainly play the role of emulsification, anti-static and anti-bacterial; auxiliary surfactants can assist emulsification; cationic conditioning agents can play a soft, anti-static, moisturizing and conditioning effect on the hair; fattening agents such as lanolin, olive oil, silicone oil, etc. in the conditioner can improve the nutritional status of the hair, so that the hair shiny, easy to comb; other active ingredients to dandruff, wetting, sunscreen, vitamins, hydrolyzed proteins, Plant extracts, etc. give a variety of functions to the conditioner, common on the market are anti-dandruff conditioner, conditioner containing aloe vera or ginseng, etc.
