Life Retreat’s Friday Weekly Round Up


Did you know skipping conditioner can be harmful to your hair? Yes, the incorrect conditioner can leave your hair feeling heavy and greasy but you’ll miss out on all the other benefits for your hair by not using conditioner at all.

Furthermore, the colour of your colour-treated hair fades much quicker if you do not use conditioner. Highlights will also dry out much faster without conditioner. This is because shampoo cleanses your hair by removing oils and any other deposits with the use of cleansing agents. It is inevitable that the outer layer of your hair (cuticle) will endure some abrasion during the cleansing process. A good conditioner will repair and caress your hair cuticles back into good shape and help to restore the pH balance of your hair.

Here’s a wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat. Enjoy your weekend!
