Conditioning your hair is valuable if you are losing it from genetic balding because when you comb it, you want the comb or brush to slide through the hair not pull on the miniaturized hair. Miniaturized hairs are fragile, and rough brushing or styling your hair without conditioner is not a good idea. I always recommend that my patient used a wide-toothed brush when combing because it doesn’t pull on the hair at the root.
