These two can make a runny conditioner super thick. If you like your conditioners thicker than a snicker then add either Shea butter or castor oil to your conditioner to make it more pliable.
If you add too much of either one you will end up with pure oil which is not quite what you would want in any conditioning product anyway.
5. Hydrolyzed protein
When you start using this ingredient I promise you will never stop. Hydrolyzed protein is the only protein that can penetrate your hair strand.
It is found in the highest quality protein products because of this very fact. If your hair is heat damaged, colored or just a bit wimpy and you need something to fix it fast then hydrolyzed protein will definitely help.
You can add just a small amount to the moisturizing conditioner(affiliate link) to enhance it and give your hair the boost it needs. You can purchase hydrolyzed protein from amazon or you can get it from a company that sells just ingredients or raw materials.
What if you are ‘ok’ with the conditioner you have but you want to strengthen your hair some more adding vitamins could do just that.
Now girl don’t go grinding up your Elongtress pills and then throwing them in your conditioner, I mean using capsules like vitamin E(affiliate link) that are so great for your hair when used topically.
Vitamin B5 – also known as pantothenic acid – which is fortified with pro vitamins that improve damaged hair is great for this purpose. You can get B5 in capsule form just like you would vitamin E(affiliate link) which makes it very easy to add to your conditioner and a perfect conditioner enhancement.
If your conditioner is having trouble delivering moisture retention then add this vitamin to it to get it to do what you need it to do.
Now in some cases some conditioners might be just straight duds; they are too runny to do anything and in that case we would say still do not throw them away. You can use them to make deep conditioners with avocados, bananas or other ingredients that you might have in store.
What do you add to your conditioner to enhance it?
