7 Things You Never Knew You Could Do With Your Conditioner

It does more than just make your hair super soft and shiny. Here's the proof…

1. Soften fabrics

Keep a bottle by your washing machine and use it in place of fabric softener. It does the exact same job at half the price.

2. Take your makeup of

If you're fully desperate and there's nowhere you can get proper makeup remover from, the smallest bit of conditioner can rescue you. Dab some on a cotton pad and gently wipe over your face, then rinse it off.

3. Care for your cuticles

There's a few cuticle creams out there that are just a tad too greasy - so instead, try dabbing a little bit of conditioner onto your nail beds before you push them back.

4. Tame annoying static hair

Frizzy or static hair is the bane of most people's lives, so to save yourself put a tiny bit of conditioner on your palms, rub together and lightly smooth over your hair to keep any flyaways at bay. It'll smell quite good too!

5. Detangle your locks

Fill an empty spray bottle with water and a dash of conditioner and shake well. Spritz it over wet hair to avoid a knotted nightmare. A cheap choice for your gym bag too.

6. Fix stubborn zips

Conditioner is technically a lubricant so if you have a stiff zip, rub a bit of conditioner on either side of it to get it going again.

7. Shave your legs

Conditioner is the best alternative to shaving cream because not only does it give a close shave, it also moisturizes at the same time. And is way cheaper.
