Each time that you apply a conditioner after you have shampooed your hair, a layer of product build-up forms on the hair. As this layer keeps building up, the hair’s ability to react to other products reduces. So next time when you oil your hair, or use a new product, the hair will not react to them in a way you would want them to.
