Are You Overconditioning Your Hair? Turns Out, You Might Be

Curated via Twitter from POPSUGAR Beauty’s twitter account….

Additionally, if you ever find yourself worried about overloading your hair with any sort of conditioner or moisturizer, it’s good to be mindful of the marketed effects of the products you use as well as the ingredients that go in them, like protein treatments or any product with an emphasis on protein.

"If you’re ever worried about overconditioning your hair, just remember to apply the majority of the product on your ends and then apply the remaining product left onto your midshaft, but almost never your roots," Toth said.

"Protein overdose is a real thing, and if you are overusing a shampoo marketed as strengthening or repairing or protein depositing, then your hair can become extremely brittle and break," Toth said.

"Too much of a strong shampoo can strip your scalp and hair of natural oils and can cause dryness or, more importantly, it can cause your scalp to overcompensate and produce way too much oil, resulting in greasier, smoother, shinier hair".

It’s definitely possible for your hair to suffer from you going slightly overboard with a product or two, but conditioner itself isn’t always the culprit.
