Synthetic Polymer Hair Conditioners are designed for use on very badly damaged hair. A polymer is a compound consisting of many (poly) repeating units which create a chain.
When the hair which is a natural polymer, is so severely damaged that it cannot be conditioned by normal protein conditioners, a synthetic polymer may be necessary to prevent breakage and correct excessive porosity.
Daily Hair Tip
Professional hairstylists often use a "rat" to create a full French twist or updo. A rat is a special form used to wrap hair around.
