Abstract:  Although hair care products have evolved and improved over the years, hair and scalp are still subject to damage from a variety of processes, such as coloring, curling, straightening, and drying. Even daily combing and brushing can disturb the surface of hair. These effects make hair weaker, causing it to appear dull and lifeless. Conditioners are used to combat the effects of this damage by improving the surface characteristics of hair. These postshampoo treatments are far from merely cosmetic, however; hair conditioners may be used therapeutically, both to improve chemical or physical damage and as vehicles for active ingredients that treat conditions of the hair and scalp such as head lice, dermatitis, seborrhea, and hair loss.
