Conditioner actually strengthens the bristles of brushes in the same way it softens hair. When used to clean brushes regularly, it can extend the life of your favorite makeup brushes. This trick even works on paint rollers.
We all knew conditioner was good for your hair but did you know that it helps to protect hair from chlorine? If you are an avid swimmer, coat the tips of your hair in conditioner before putting on your cap. After all, no one wants green hair.
Teasing your hair looks cool in the moment, but it is almost impossible to get out. Apply a little conditioner to your tangled hair while it is still dry. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then rinse the tangles out.
If you are camping or just don’t have access to a washer, you can do your laundry in a sink with conditioner. Soak the clothing in hot water and pour in a teaspoon of conditioner. Let the clothes soak for half an hour, then rinse and dry.
Conditioner can make straight hair even more straight. Mix together water, a teaspoon of conditioner, a teaspoon of salt, and a teaspoon of hair gel. Pour it into a spray bottle and shake well. Your hair will be straight but voluminous.
Fill your sink with warm water (or cold for colors). Add in a tablespoon of conditioner, then soak your silk for a few minutes. Next, rinse it and hang it out to dry. Much better than going to a cleaner’s.
Not only does conditioner polish leather, but it can also even protect it from the effects of the snow. When your boots are completely dry, coat them a little bit at a time. Buff it out with a clean rag, and you’re good to go.
We mentioned earlier that conditioner is great for helping control frizzy hair – and the same goes for hair that’s prone to a bit of static. No one likes that look. Just rub a small amount of conditioner in your palms and smooth over your hair, it will help weigh your hair down.
Make A DIY Body Scrub
Exfoliate your skin by making a super moisturizing body scrub with some conditioner and brown sugar. Simply mix some conditioner with a couple tablespoons of coarse brown sugar along with a squeeze of lemon juice. Your skin will feel oh-so-soft and smell really nice too!
Give Yourself A Pedicure
If doing home pedicures is something you enjoy doing – you should definitely be incorporating conditioner into this self-care routine. While soaking your feet, add a few tablespoons of conditioner to the water. Like we mentioned before, it’s a great way to moisturize your feet – especially those hard calluses on your heels.
