The One Conditioner You Should Stop Buying From The Drugstore, According To A Dermatologist

Using a conditioner is essential as it’s needed to condition the hair follicle and keep your hair healthy and looking shiny. But, not every conditioner is made equally. In fact, there’s one type of conditioner that dermatologists say you should steer clear of because it’s formulated with irritating and potentially harmful ingredients.

New York dermatologist Dr. Sejal Shah suggests avoiding conditioners that contain preservatives–specifically propylene glycol.

"Preservatives like propylene glycol can also cause scalp irritation, which can also lead to hair loss,” Dr. Shah tells BustleInstead, she stresses that it's important to use conditioners that contain proteins that will help strengthen the strands and promote moisture. 

Not sure which conditioner you can trust? Dr. Shah recommends using 1790's Silk Protein Conditioner because it's free of propylene glycol and doesn't have heavy waxes or oils that will leave behind a residue. 

 

This formula uses silk protein, which helps the hair hold ten thousand times its weight in moisture and delivers healthy, shiny, silky-smooth hair. 

TRY IT: 1790 Silk Protein Conditioner ($5.99)
