Nearly every hair type can benefit from the use of leave-in hair conditioners, but they’re even more useful if you’ve noticed that your hair is dry, damaged or frizzy in places.
Leave-in conditioners are a particularly popular pick for people with curly hair, as they can be used after towel-drying to protect and boost curls without weighing them down. But whatever your hair type, you’re sure to experience smoother, glossier hair if you incorporate leave-in hair conditioner as part of your hair care routine.
What is the purpose of leave-in hair conditioner?
Leave-in conditioners give your hair additional moisture, detangle individual strands and help to keep hair protected from damaging influences like heat products and UV rays.
Colour-treated hair and hair that is regularly straightened, curled or waved can benefit from the nourishing and protective properties of a leave-in hair conditioner, but that’s not to say it’s just designed to aid damaged hair. If your hair is naturally frizzy or you find that many shampoos leave it feeling dry, a leave-in conditioner is an easy way to replenish moisture and keep every strand looking its best.
Is it OK to use leave-in conditioner every day?
Experts advise using leave-in conditioners a few days a week at most, rather than every single day. That’s because using conditioners every single day can cause product build-up, though it is possible to mitigate this by avoiding conditioners that contain silicone, which weighs down your hair and can make it slippery to style.
We recommend using leave-in conditioners once or twice a week, to give your hair a deep nourishing boost.
