Fact or Fiction?

Most conditioners contain silicones, but there are important differences in the silicones used today. The modern silicones in Pantene Pro-V conditioners, for example, have been created to target the damaged areas of hair so that they deposit where they are needed rather than coating the hair.

If you think that your hair is looking limp or lifeless, be sure that you are using the shampoo version to match your conditioner, as the cleaning power of the shampoo should balance the depositing power of the conditioner. In addition, you should thoroughly rinse both the shampoo and conditioner every time you wash your hair, and choose the right products for your hair. Following these guidelines should ensure that silicones do their job to help give you beautiful hair.

Verdict: Fiction.
