From our “QuestionHub,” someone asked that “does dove conditioner work with any shampoo?” and whether they “can use two different brands of shampoo and conditioner?”. firstly; dove conditioner with other brands of shampoo, will it work as effective for it should have? YES!!!, with a condition such as; using the “Pantene Moisturizing Shampoo for Dry Hair“, with “Dove Nutritive Conditioner for Dry and Detangles Hair“.
These are two different brand products but will help you treat some hair issues, so as for dandruff, hair falls, split ends, and the likes. Although using this way is unnecessary; as using two different brands of shampoo and conditioner does not guarantee effective outcomes, while using the same brand will help the best outcomes in the sense that our hair care products and brands work consistency. So, choosing two different brands may not be advisable and also, you should always go for a shampoo and conditioner brand that suits your hair type, needs, or condition.
However, come to think of it this way; you finish your shampoo and still having enough of your conditioner, and maybe your friend or neighbor uses “Head and Shoulders Shampoo and Conditioner Set“, and you are using “Dove Shampoo and Conditioner Set“. Can you use two different brands of shampoo and conditioner?, also I will say YES!!! and that is if you are using it for the same hair problem.
So, I will just advise you to choose your shampoo and conditioner brands just as instructed by your hair professionals for your hair type and needs. However, as we all know that shampoos and conditioners are made with different ingredients for a different purpose such as; hair growth, cleansing the scalp, smoothing hair, moisturizing… and so on. And hardly will a matching set suit your hair need.
And don’t forget what I said earlier, that the only condition that can make you use two different brands is if you’re dealing with dry hair and scalp, dandruff, itchy scalp, and the likes. And that’s because using a more essential conditioner with your anti-dandruff shampoo could properly weaken your scalp needed benefits. For better understanding, about 40 to 50 proportion of the active ingredient in Head and Shoulders Anti Dandruff Shampoo, is (pyrithione zinc) which may deteriorate your scalp if you don’t use with the brand’s anti-dandruff conditioner.

Does Shampoo and Conditioner Make A Difference?
YES!!!. Applying your conditioner after or before or shampooing or at the same time isn’t at any time bad, and will never be. So you now ask does it make any difference, yes it makes lots of difference for your hair, as shampooing will only help you to clean your hair while the conditioner is used to help you improve your hair touch, look, and manageability, and also its major purpose is to diminish friction between strands of your hair and support smoother while brushing or combing your hair after shampooing.
Difference Between Shampoo and Conditioner:
|1. Shampoo only helps to wash and clean your hair.||While conditioner will help you make it softer.|
|2. Shampoo will as much as possible lighten your hair.||While conditioner will help to weigh it down by adding moisture and sometimes essential oils.|
|3. Applying shampoo on your hair, you will need to apply more aggressively to help your scalp, for better cleaning.||While conditioner is more efficient when you direct on the ends of your hairs.|
In fact, there’s nothing bad about applying both shampoo and conditioner, but they will be more efficient when you applied independently and adequately.
