- The conditioner acts as a barrier while you workout, preventing the hair from absorbing sweat and toxins into the hair shaft.
- The conditioner keeps the hair soft during washing process. In this case you will be co-washing your hair which is a conditioner rinse. All you do is wash the conditioner out, apply your leave-in conditioner and/or oil then go. That’s it!
