FAQs

How long do I leave in natural conditioner?

There is no set time limit for leaving in natural conditioner, but a good time marker is around three minutes for each wash. Once you put your conditioner in, you can either wait around for those minutes to pass before rinsing it out or start washing your body or face before rinsing out your conditioner. That timeframe should be long enough for your hair to absorb all the nutrients from your personal care product.


If you’re talking about one of the best natural conditioners for deep conditioning, we recommend leaving it in for as long as your bottle tells you to. Some deep conditioning conditioners should be left in for up to 30 minutes. And, with those types of products, it may be best to only use them on shaving days when you’ll be in the shower longer than normal.


What does conditioner do for your hair?

Whether you’re using conditioner for curly hair, damaged hair, fine hair, or dyed hair, there’s one thing they all have in common, conditioner helps to restore your hair (both breakage and split ends) and protect it from any further damage that could happen.


Here are some other things your conditioner does for your hair that you may not have known about:

  • Natural conditioner can add volume and body to your hair
  • Conditioner smooths hair cuticles and makes it easier to manage
  • Natural conditioners can soften hair to make it feel (and look) nicer and shinier
  • Condtioner products can moisturize hair and control frizz (Amazing!)

Conditioner does so much for your hair, it’s no wonder why pet owners also use a good conditioner on their furry friends, too. A natural conditioner for dogs can ease dry skin and also help with other skin issues like itchiness.

What happens if you mix conditioner with hair dye?

Interestingly enough, many people out there mix their hair dye with conditioner, and there can be benefits to doing so.


First off, hair dye can be full of harsh chemicals that really take a toll on your hair each time you decide to sport a new look. Your natural conditioner can help protect your hair from some of those chemicals in hair dye. Secondly, some people use one of the best natural conditioners with their hair dyes to try and lighten their color up a bit. This is done to achieve a color they may not be able to produce on their own. Lastly, a reason someone might mix their natural conditioner with their hair dye is because conditioner will leave hair feeling silky and smooth afterward, while appearing shiny, too.
