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
In a Clairol Professional survey 33% of the respondents reported that they preferred to have their hair colored in a salon rather than risk doing damage at home. 50% of the participants said they liked their colorists best because of friendliness while only 38% valued good advice about haircolor or the fact that the colorist kept up on the latest trends.
