Why is Conditioner Important?
Lots of people say you shouldn't use conditioner if you want to save your hair. That's incorrect, however. Properly using conditioner is essential if you wish to repair and save your hair.
It's not uncommon to hear men only using shampoo during their showers. Today's beauty industry tends to focus more on women's products and for whatever reason, that seems to have convinced a lot of men that only women need to use hair conditioner. This is not true. Your hair deserves conditioner as much as any woman's hair does.
Hair is basically built up of an inner layer and an outer layer. The outer layer is basically a protective cover of microscopic, overlapping cells. When these cells are damaged, they become frayed, cause hair to look and feel rough. Not only that, it will also be less effective at protecting the inner layer. This increases the risk of hair breakage. This kind of damage can often occur as a result of overexcessive shampooing. By applying conditioner, you work to smooth down the frayed and roughed up cells on the outer layers. This is why hair looks and feels smoother. In addition, your hair will also look and feel silkier and healthier.
How to Apply Conditioner?
There is a right and a wrong way to apply conditioner. One of the most important starters is to look at frequency. Shorter hair, for example, only needs to be conditioned about one to twice a week. Shorter hair can receive plenty of nutrients from the scalp, so conditioning every day would just overdo things.
However, different hair types require and ask for different treatments. Short, extremely curly hair asks for conditioning after each shampoo. For more information on treating curly hair, we suggest looking up the so called curly girl method.
As a general rule, though, less is more. This includes how you apply conditioner to your hair. Conditioners are meant to hydrate, moisturize, and smoothen your hair. They're not meant for cleaning your hair, like shampoo is. Applying conditioner as if it were shampoo isn't going to be effective.
It's recommended to avoid applying conditioner directly to the scalp; apply it to the remaining parts of your hair, instead. Make sure the conditioner gets into the ends of your hair, in particular. This is the part of your hair that needs a bit of extra love, care, and nutrients than the hair that's closer to your scalp.
So now you’re probably wondering…
How Does Fortero Revitalizing Conditioner Help With Hair Loss?
Fortero Revitalizing Conditioner is a hair loss conditioner. The lack of hair conditioner is actually more damaging to your hair than it is helpful.
As a matter of fact: The lack of conditioning hair properly has been tied to certain types of baldness in men.
As mentioned before, your hair is essentially made up of two layers; an inner and an outer layer. The outer layer of the hair shaft is called the cuticle. The cuticle is made up of microscopic scale-like cells that protects the inner layer, which is made up of proteins. It can be roughened by shampooing. Aside from the aforementioned increased risk of breakage, by not properly conditioning your hair, it can become severely clogged with dirt and grime. Your hair will get less chance to properly grow, as a result.
When you overwash your hair, you might worsen the damage done to your cuticles. Instead of solving the problem, you're making it worse. That's why proper conditioning is so important.
Fortero Shampoo and Conditioner provides a two-fold solution to these problems:
1. Utilizing transformative carbonic acid to break up the proteins that keep the hair follicles clogged
2. Working to smooth down roughened hair cuticles and preserve the inner layers of your hair from damage
Complete Your Hair Routine with Fortero Thickening Shampoo & Conditioner
It's impossible to properly focus on just one aspect of the body and hope that everything works out. By combining Fortero Revitalizing conditioner with Fortero's Carbonic Acid shampoo, you keep your scalp clean and dandruff free, and your hair moisturized and smooth. This can make all the difference. This way both your hair sacks and hair ends get all the nutrients it needs to grow as healthily and optimally as it can.
3 effective ingredients to make your hair stronger:
・Hydrolyzed Keratin: To support the hair from the outside and restore damaged hair from the inside by filling the minor gaps throughout the hair shaft.
・Ginger Root Extract: Contains nutrients that provide your hair follicles with nourishment and helps address scalp inflammation.
・Sugar Cane Extract: The high moisture content promotes increased hair growth by soothing and helping the scalp to attract water and then to hold onto it.
Let’s take a closer look at the three main ingredients that make up our revolutionary conditioner: hydrolyzed keratin, ginger root extract, and sugar cane.
What is Hydrolyzed Keratin?
Keratin is actually part of the makeup of your hair. It’s a protein that’s responsible for the health of your hair, making it a great component to add to a conditioner.
The keratin in your hair can be easily damaged by a variety of things such as too much sun exposure and the overuse of hot hair care appliances.
So, including it in our conditioner as a key ingredient makes a lot of sense.
Hydrolyzed keratin is a larger molecule of protein that gets broken down when applied to the hair and it comes in contact with water.
The process of breaking down allows the keratin to pass through the cuticle’s outer layer and into the inner layers of hair where it can be absorbed and do the most good.
Penetrating below the cuticle layer allows the hydrolyzed keratin to repair inner hair damages.
Further benefits from hydrolyzed keratin include the fact that it:
・Creates a protective barrier for hair
・Reduces frizz, breakage, and excessive shedding
・Moisturizes limp, dry, or broken hair
・Tames unruly hair
・Can increase volume
・Restores shine and luster

Ginger Root Extract
Ginger root extract has been proven to stimulate hair follicles and subsequently promote hair growth. This powerful root also contains many vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids that combine to strengthen your individual hair strands. And when your hair is stronger and more fortified, it’s not going to fall out as easily. Ginger root extract also contributes to restoring moisture loss. Constant exposure to the sun can leave hair dry and brittle, but the ginger root is a wonderful, natural solution to that problem.
Sugar cane also contributed to promoting hair growth. It’s a great source of antioxidants, which can help hair resist the damaging rays of the sun.
Sugar cane also combats dryness in hair and on the head. Scalp dryness is a common issue many deal with. Sugar cane juice nourishes both your scalp and your hair, making both stronger.
