Conditioning your hairThe Fail: Unless your shampoo and conditioner bottles are Herbal Essences and speaking to you in the first person, you're probably not reading the tiny print on each of the bottles. And why would you? You know the rules by heart: lather, rinse, and repeat. And when you condition, you probably apply from roots to tips and think the longer you leave it in, the better the conditioning power. But as damaged as your hair is, the hair closest to your roots is new growth, and thus healthier than the length of your hair. Which means your roots don't need that heavy shot of conditioner.
The Fix: Instead of coating your whole head in conditioner, start at ear-level and apply your conditioner all the way to the ends of your hair. You'll be wasting a lot less product and end up with lighter, less-greasy roots after your shower.
