Conditioners can smoothen. But, can they repair?

Conditioners can smoothen. But, can they repair?

Ever wondered why your hair feels so smooth after conditioner? It is because they coat the rough edges of the hair, and make them feel smoother, easy to manage and detangle.

Well, this is just the basic stuff. But, let us dig a bit deeper behind the science of it!

The basic principle behind any conditioner is the proven scientific postulate that opposite charges attract. Our hairs are anionic(-) in nature while the conditioners have cationic(+) charge. And as we all know, opposites attract, just like two opposite ends of a magnet.

Now, let's understand what a typical conditioner contains:

  • Moisturiser-for restoring hydration
  • Oil-for restoring the lipids
  • Butter-for profoundly nourishing the tips of the hair
  • Cationic Polymer-the main ingredient which retains on hair


When we apply conditioner on our hair, a small portion of oil, butter and moisturiser penetrates inside hair and nourishes them. But, it is the cationic polymer that gives instant smoothening and glides effect on hair. Ideally, this glide effect remains on hair for 24-48 and gradually fades away before rewashing the hair.

Some of the heavy conditioners sold from salons can remain on hair for a longer duration. Still, in the end, no matter how useful the conditioning polymers are, they can only smoothen the hair till the time it is retained. As soon as conditioner coating is gone, the hair comes back to its original form.

So we understood how conditioner could smoothen the hair but can they really repair the hair?
Well, yes and no?

Synthetic cationic polymers (ordinary conditioners) can only coat the hair because they are positively charged and can remain on hair even after wash because of our negatively charged hair. But these synthetic conditioners do not have any nutritional value.

If you are looking at conditioners which not just coat but repair the hair from inside out, look for conditioners with natural proteins & lipids. Proteins give strength and lipids give natural manageability, softness to hair.

So, when can a conditioner repair your hair?

After any chemical treatment or a colour experiment in the salon or just in routine life, if you feel that your hair is seeking a repair, go for conditioners with natural vegetable proteins.

How to identify natural vegan protein ingredients?

Look out for natural ingredients like Soya protein, Quinoa protein, Baobab protein, Rice protein, Oat protein) and lipids (lipid-rich oils and butter-like Argan, Soya, Shea, Avocado etc. At Brillare, our formulation scientist have formulated conditioners with powerful botanical ingredients.
