Comments:   Natural conditioners like curd and banana really worked well on my hair. There is good list of natural conditioners in this article, now I can use these conditioners. It is good for preventing hair damage from other chemical based conditioners. Using chemical based conditioners as well as shampoos is not good for the health of the hair. It is better to protect hair using natural ingredients. Conditioning with natural ingredients does not involve wastage of money. Chemical based commercial products are nothing but money eating bugs.

Comments:   I use home made natural conditioners. These types of conditioners are the best for the health of the hair. It is also essential to find correct ingredients for your hair. If you use correct natural ingredients which will suit your hair it is beneficial for your hair. I prefer to use almond oil for my hair conditioning. Almond oil conditioning is good for dry and frizzy hair. I condition my hair with almond oil 2 to 3 hours before washing my hair. It is helpful to get smooth and soft hair after hair wash. Though it is good for deep conditioning hair, it is difficult to remove almond oil form hair.

Comments:   Pantene is a best hair conditioner. I use it twice a week after washing my hair. It gives a nice volume to hair. I love the bouncy hair which I get after using Pantene hair conditioner. I use the procedure mentioned in the article to condition my hair always. This is the best method of conditioning hair. I make sure that the conditioner is rinse of completely from hair and I do not apply it to my scalp. It can cause harm to the hair if there is a left over conditioner in on scalp or hair. It is safer to use good and branded product on your hair to avoid hair fall and damage.
