If you’re still experiencing dry, brittle hair after using your usual wash-in, wash-out conditioner, you may need to consider using a leave-in conditioner. These are like a second frontier for hair care and can provide much needed moisturisation to hair in need of a boost.
Benefits of using leave-in conditioners
After cleansing and conditioning, using a leave-in conditioner further assists in improving the manageability of hair by making it smoother, more flexible and can also strengthen its structure according to Haireducation.
A good leave-in conditioner should also give your hair slip which will make detangling easier.
When should a leave-in conditioner be used
A leave-in conditioner should be used after cleansing and conditioning the hair. Some leave-in conditioners can also be used as daily moisturisers.
Types of leave-in conditioners
Leave-in conditioners come in various forms; liquid sprays, lotions and creams.
If you have very thick and coarse hair a creamy leave-in will be suitable for your hair. If you have fine hair then a light product like a lotion or leave-in spray will be appropriate. Note that leave-in conditioners will either be protein-based or moisturise-based depending on the ingredients it contains.
