The Behentrimonium Chloride 2% Conditioner is one of three core hair heroes from The Ordinary, each formulated with the same ingredients-first, results-driven ethos that made their affordable skin care essentials so beloved by Team Cult Beauty (and the rest of the beauty industry too!). Think: less fluff, less filler, more of what your hair and scalp actually need. Behentrimonium chloride might not be something you’re all too familiar with (yet!), but in true The Ordinary form, the brand has narrowed in on one of the hardest working in hair and made it the star of this ultra-effective formula — while ditching the unnecessary ingredients other brands typically use to bulk out formulas, but that can actually just leave hair feeling limp and weighed down.
With a minimalistic-yet-effective formula, the Behentrimonium Chloride 2% Conditioner will help to condition, soften and detangle hair without unnecessary, filler ingredients.
The star ingredient here — as the name may suggest — is behentrimonium chloride. Though you might not have heard about this ingredient much, it’s likely on the INCI list of some of your favourite conditioners, and The Ordinary have tailored this lightweight formula to hero it at a 2% concentration (a low potency that still allows for the full efficacy of the ingredient). This helps to condition your mane (yes, even if its colour treated!) while adding plenty of slip and helping to detangle strands. In turn, this makes brushing or combing through your hair a whole lot easier, leading to less damage and stress in the long run.
