Hair conditioners and hair masks are the most common and commonly used hair care products in daily life. After cleaning their hair or wigs, many people choose to use hair conditioners or hair masks to maintain their hair. Many girls can have bright and smooth hair, which is inseparable from the correct use of hair care products. What is the difference between hair conditioner and hair mask, which are also used for hair care or wig care? Should I use a hair conditioner or a hair mask in my life?
What are the differences between hair conditioners and hair masks? To clarify the difference between the two, one should first clarify the concepts of the two.
Hair Conditioner is a lightweight hair care product that is typically used after shampooing. Its role is to soften the hair, make it easy to comb, and provide a certain degree of protection and moisture for the hair. Hair conditioner usually contains hair care ingredients, such as protein, vitamins, plant essence, etc. They can penetrate into the hair to enhance the elasticity and softness of the hair.
A hair mask is a thicker hair care product that typically needs to be applied to the hair after shampooing, and then allowed to stand for a period of time before being washed off. Its role is to deeply nourish the hair, repair the damage on the surface and inside of the hair, and increase the luster and softness of the hair. The hair mask usually contains higher concentration of hair care ingredients, such as protein, collagen, plant essence, vitamin E, etc. They can further nourish the hair and provide a stronger repair effect.
The nutrients in hair conditioners are very different from hair masks. Although hair conditioners can soften hair, make it smooth, and not easy to knot, nutrients cannot enter the depths of the hair, so hair conditioners cannot nourish the hair. From a conceptual perspective, hair conditioners can protect hair, while hair masks can not only protect but also nourish hair.
Other differences lie in their texture, use, and efficacy. Hair conditioners are suitable for daily care, making hair softer and easier to comb. The hair mask is suitable for regular use to deeply nourish hair and repair damage. According to individual hair conditions and needs, different hair care products can be choosed to meet hair care needs.
Although there are many differences between the two, there are also similarities:
Their ability to protect hair is due to surface active cations, alcohols, and silicone oils.
Both should be used after shampooing and shampooing.
Although both hair masks and hair conditioners have certain protective effects on hair, they are indeed two completely different things, and their effects vary greatly. Hair conditioner is actually like cosmetics, mainly to bring a certain softening effect to the hair. Because the hair is scaly, the overall hair is actually relatively dry and frictional. After using hair conditioner, the ingredients cover the surface, which can make the hair very smooth and smooth. Hair masks are actually skin care products for hair. The essence of hair masks is to supplement nutrients to the hair, allowing nutrients to penetrate into the hair, allowing the hair to grow better and have a good repair effect.
