Why do I need to use a conditioner?
In a great conditioner, you’ll find a ton of ingredients that will make a huge difference in your waves or curls. Hydrate is packed with slip agents, emollients, moisture sealants, detanglers, and humectants that coat your locks and flatten the cuticles. With protection like this, your hair is less susceptible to losing it's moisture and it tangles less (because the cuticles are flattened) reducing the chance of breakage.
Do I use a leave-in-conditioner after Hydrate?
Absolutely. After Hydrate, follow up with FORM Multitask Leave-In-Lotion for increased conditioning and detangling. Multitask also serves as primer for all FORM stylers.
How do I deep condition with Hydrate?
For more intense conditioning, apply to dry hair as a pre-wash or leave on clean, wet hair for about 15-30 minutes to deep condition. Use heat for best results. You can trap in heat with a shower cap wrapped in a warm, damp towel when you deep condition. As an alternative, steamy hot showers and hair steamers work well too. No hair steamer? A fabric steamer does the trick!
Can I use Hydrate conditioner as a leave-in?
Hydrate should be washed out. It should not be used as a leave-in. But no fear, we’ve got you covered there too. After Hydrate, follow up with FORM Multitask Leave-In-Lotion for increased conditioning and slip. Multitask also serves as a styling primer and a style refresher.
Can I co-wash with Hydrate?
You can, but we strongly recommend a gentle wash with either Clarify or Cleanse Shampoo instead, followed by your recommended FORM conditioner. Co-washing can eventually lead to buildup and dullness. Buildup causes additional issues such as dryness, stunted hair growth, and breakage.
Does Hydrate conditioner have any protein?
Hydrate does not include protein. For damaged, high porosity, and/or chemically or thermally treated hair, we recommend using Revive, which includes Hydrolyzed Rice Protein. Hydrate is a super hydrating conditioner formulated for unprocessed hair.
