How to use conditioner: 4 different methods

Colder months can wreak havoc with your hair, and you may find your locks looking less than their best at these times. In fact, breakage, dryness and frizz can make a frustratingly regular appearance from autumn through to spring.

But luckily for us, hair care products like leave-in conditioners and deep conditioning masks can give your tresses that extra boost they need. Just like our Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food range, which covers all bases – it’s a wash-out conditioner, intensive hair mask and a leave-in conditioner all in one.

Our new conditioning innovation, Garnier Ultimate Blends No-Rinse Conditioners will help you save water with every wash, all the while leaving hair intensely nourished without weighing it down.

Our Ultimate Blends Hair Care ranges give you complete control over what type of nourishing treatment your hair needs on any given day – without you having to use multiple products.
So, how exactly do you use them? Follow our key steps for hair care satisfaction.

How to use a No Rinse Conditioner


Save water with every wash, make the switch to No-Rinse Conditioners. With an average of up to 7 liters of water used every time you condition your hair, why rinse the goodness off?

Blended with 98% Natural Origin Ingredients and No Silicones for a natural feel, Garnier's No Rinse Conditioners are formulated to intensely nourish hair without leaving residue. Here's how to use Garnier Ultimate Blends No Rinse Conditioner to nourish and detangle hair.

Ready to take on the nourishment from your No Rinse Conditioner that leaves no residue?


Step 1: Prep your hair

Apply your shampoo of choice to wet hair and rinse. Check out our range of Garnier Ultimate Blends Shampoo bars, for zero plastic waste for the planet. 


Step 2: Get out of the Shower

After shampooing, turn off the water, get out the shower and take your pick from the Garnier Ultimate Blends No Rinse Conditioner range. We have four different blends for different hair needs.


Step 3: Apply No Rinse Conditioner

Apply a small amount to the lengths and ends of your wet hair, no need to rinse.


Step 4: Style & Go

Once the product is evenly distributed through your lengths and ends, dry your hair with a hair dryer or let it dry naturally for a soft and silky finish.


How to use a rinse-out conditioner


The most-common way to use a conditioner is to apply it immediately after you’ve shampooed your hair, then wash it out. By using a conditioning formula as part of your standard routine, you can find your hair is shinier and smoother after washing. Here’s how to use Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food as a wash-out conditioner to fight frizz and flyaways.

Step 1: Prep your hair

Following the instructions on the bottle, apply your Garnier shampoo of choice to wet hair and rinse. Shampoo is an important preparatory step to ensure that your hair is clean and ready to absorb as much nourishment from your conditioner as possible, without weighing it down.

Step 2: Apply Hair Food

Take your pick from the Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food range, based on your individual hair needs, and scoop out a small dollop of product. Massage it into wet hair with your fingertips in a circular motion, working the product in from root to tip.

Step 3: Rinse

Once the product is evenly distributed through your hair, let it rest for a couple of minutes – as you would a standard conditioner – then rinse out thoroughly, working from your scalp down to the end of each strand.



How to use a hair mask

When you really need an extra boost of moisture, apply Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food as a hair mask. This method conditions your hair right down to the roots – reducing the appearance of dryness and breakage.

Step 1: Prep your hair

A hair mask should never be applied to an unwashed scalp. So wash your hair, following your shampoo’s instructions, then rinse and towel dry your tresses.

Step 2: Apply Hair Food

Divide hair into sections and apply Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food to your strands from root to tip. Gently comb your hair to release tangles as you work your way through each section. Once all your tresses are covered in product, wrap your hair up in a towel. This will help seal in your Hair Food mask, for maximum absorption. Depending on how damaged your hair is, leaving it on for as little as 3 minutes can make a big change to your locks.

Step 3: Rinse

Once you’ve left the mask on for your desired time, lather with cool water, then rinse off.



How to use leave-in conditioner 

Want to go a step beyond regular-use, mask? Use Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food as a once-weekly moisturising leave-in treatment.

Step 1: Prep your hair or not

What’s best about using it as a leave-in is you can use it on wet or dry hair on the go.

Step 2: Apply Hair Food

Scoop a small amount of the formula into your hands and apply to lengths to tame frizz and leave hair super smooth.
