It is common problem that so many women use hair conditioner and hair mask but cannot see any effect. The first notice is that you should make sure your hair is clean enough before applying hair conditioner or hair mask since dirt and sweat could reduce the ability to absorb nourishments from hair conditioner or hair mask.

For example, sulphate shampoo is not always bad because it is very effective in cleaning hair and open cuticle and when you use the hair serum or hair conditioner from the same brand which is tailored to reduce the bad effect of hair shampoo, it is good idea but if you use hair conditioner from different brand which is not strong enough in hydrating your hair after using sulphate shampoo, it is bad idea..
