5 Best Conditioners for Men (and Anyone Else Who Has Hair)

While some gents may be blessed with naturally luscious locks that never seem to succumb to the damaging weight of the everyday (cue *eyeroll*), many of us aren’t so lucky. So when our hair needs a little extra moisture or we notice that our dull follicles could use a quick shine, we need to lean on our old pal, Mr. Conditioner.

Unlike shampoo, conditioner doesn’t remove dirt, oil or residue from strands. Instead, it infuses them with nutrients intended to improve the overall condition or health of one’s hair. Though you may not end up using it as often as you would a shampoo, finding a good conditioner is essential to keeping your ‘do looking fresh all year long.

Not sure where to start? Check out the best conditioners we’ve found.

Composed of healing jojoba oil, aloe vera, coconut extract, and tea tree oil, the hydration remedy from Rugged & Dapper is the perfect antidote for damaged hair — and that’s why it was featured in The Manual Grooming Awards 2018. To use? Simply apply a small amount after shampooing and let it sit for up to five minutes so the mixture can seep deep into your roots and re-energize your follicle proteins. Use as needed for locks that are instantly shinier and healthier.
