Like the Solid Shampoo, Solid Conditioner is a concentrated form of liquid conditioner that provides you with 24 oz conditioner in the size of a 2.5 oz bar without the plastic waste!
Wild for Oregon Solid Conditioners are formulated with a unique blend of conditioning agents, emollients, nutrients and vitamins compressed into a solid bar to turn into conditioner when mixed with water in your hair.
What Makes a Conditioner Work?
It's All About the Charge
Our hair has a negative charge; the more damaged or chemically treated, the higher the negative charge becomes.
A conditioner should:
Only ingredients with a positive charge will meet these needs. These ingredients lay on the outside of the negatively charged hair shaft and are resistant to being washed right down the drain so they can work their magic until the next time you wash your hair.
Lotions and oils are anionic (or neutral) in charge. They do not provide protection or slip, or any of the properties characteristic of a hair conditioner.
We use plant-based conditioners to do the heavy lifting of your hair's conditioning needs.
These conditioners also serve an important function; they blend all the other ingredients together with the water in your hair so that it becomes a velvety, soft cream!
We use different combinations of emollients in each conditioner to acheive various results. These emollients nourish and provide slip for the hair. Some even mimic silicones without the adverse effects!
Silicones are commonly used in hair conditioners and styling products to smooth the hair shaft, control frizz and provide a shiny appearance to the hair. They have a tendency to buildup along the hair shaft, however, and are not easily removed. Harsh cleansers containing sulfates are usually needed to strip hair of silicones, so then a viscious cycle occurs; sulfates harm your hair causing dullness and frizz, so you use silicone conditioners and leave-ins to make it look better, but then you need the sulfates to clean it all out!
Our plant based alternatives provide all the benefits of silicones, but wash out with our mild, coconut derived shampoos the next time you wash!
Nutrients and Vitamins
In addition to the nutrients and vitamins in the plant-based emollients, we add dl-panthenol(Vitamin B5) into each conditioner (and shampoo, actually). Vitamin B5 is a natural component to healthy hair. Replenishing this vitamin improves hydration, elasticity and softness of both hair and skin. This is great not only for your hair, but your scalp as well!
Hydrolyzed proteins are also added into each conditioner. Our hair is made up of proteins, and adding a hydrolyzed protein to the conditioner replenishes our hair and helps strengthen, smooth, and voluminize our hair.
