Hair Quickie: All hair is not created equal therefore you can not expect a particular hair technique to fit all either. For instance, just like texture black women have varying levels of thickness when it comes to their strands. Women with what is considered “thin” hair have often been told to only condition the ends of their tresses. This being because it was believed that ends tend to be drier thus needing more attention. Moreover, another reason is because the weight of the conditioner was thought to be too heavy and could weigh down the hair.
Nevertheless, the truth is that fine locks are very fragile and need the support of conditioner in order to avoid damage. Water only makes thinner hair more prone to breakage because hair can stretch up to 30% in length. Applying conditioner not just on the ends of strands but at the roots will help add moisture and give limp hair extra strength. If you are still afraid of product weighing your thin hair down too much stick to a light conditioner inside of a thicker cream or formula.
