Wrapping up your in-shower hair routine with conditioner makes all the difference. Not only do your tresses feel softer, it actually acts as a seal that locks in the benefits of your shampoo and creates an invisible shield against damage and frizz. That's why every time you wash those locks, don't forget to slather some on. Below, we round up some of the best conditioning picks around for you to try:
1. Dove Intense Repair Conditioner
This conditioner works deep within the cuticles to help repair damage from the weather or heat styling. It uses keratin actives to nourish the strands and build its resistance against breakage. If you have dry hair, you can count on the patented moisture serum likely to fight frizz and split ends.
