What the Conditioners actually do?

When you use shampoo on your hair it makes your hair and scalp basic (alkaline). In that case the scales of your hair (yes, hairs have scales like a snake) or cuticles stands up. The hair has a tiny pipeline inside in which flows natural oil. When the cuticles stand up, it stops the natural oil from coming out. Thus, your hair becomes very dry.

The conditioners are acidic. They remove the alkaline effects of the shampoo from your hair. Thus, they help the scales to lie again. The flow of natural oil started again which makes the hair oily and shiny.
