What your hair actually needs is moisturization. It’s what’s required for locks to feel soft, smooth, hydrated. This means adding the moisturizing elements found in effective shampoos and conditioners, much the same way we do in products we use for our face or body. To help, look for products with silicones and fatty alcohols, and search out terms like “intense moisturization,” depending on what you think is right for your hair type.
