What Kind of Conditioner Should One Use?

Posted by Krista (Tampa, FL) on 02/05/2006

I have thick coarse hair and would like to try one of these treatments, but you suggest not to use conditioner after a treatment or at all. If I don't use conditioner my hair feels like straw. I couldn't imagine it after using acv and peroxide. Any suggestions? Thank you.

You can try coconut oil to make the hair more supple, but it needs to be mixed with some tea tree oil and lavender oil to be any effective. Conditioner is nothing but silicone chemicals we chemist used all the time, it is sometimes trimethicone or simethicone or dimethicone, which is a silicone compound we used in hair products to make it smooth, but less greasy looking than used in the 1950s. Yes, you can use a conditioner, if only your condition of hair and scalp is gone. However most products that you are using might in fact be the cause of your problem. This is why I have a tendency to recommend to stop everything until you treat the problem first.
