Does conditioner make hair greasy?

Have you ever not put conditioner on your hair because it makes it greasy? If so, we have just the article for you; read carefully. There are so many false myths about hair care floating around out there, and a classic example of this is that conditioner or a hair mask makes your hair greasy, when in fact this is completely untrue.


Conditioner softens hair, conditions hair, locks in natural moisture, helps with detangling and adds shine. What it doesn’t do, however, is make your hair greasy. If you have ever noticed that your hair is greasier than usual, it is probably due to one of the following reasons:


  1. Rinsing is essential, both between shampooing and conditioning and at the end. Make sure you wash the product out fully so that hair looks soft and silky. 
  2. Do not apply conditioner to the roots. This can lead to a greasy scalp, which in turn can weigh your hair down, leaving it feeling lank and lifeless. 
  3. Choosing the most suitable conditioner for your hair type is key, as the composition of the conditioner also plays a major role. Ideally, go for conditioners with low molecular weight formulas, as they are suitable for all hair types. 
  4. Quantity can make all the difference. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair, we will need to use more or less of the product. Ideally, we recommend applying a tangerine-sized amount for longer, thicker hair and a hazelnut-sized amount for shorter, finer hair. 

If you skip the conditioning stage in your routine, you will notice that the ends of your hair will become weaker and weaker, especially when it comes to detangling.  Protecting the hair fibre from the inside is fundamental for strengthening the hair against external aggressions.
