If you are missing a good leave-in from your hair care regimen, then you are missing a key ingredient in the perfect-hair-of-your-dreams recipe.Let’s break it down by the different type of leave-in conditioners you can find, and how each of them are amazing in their own ways beyond the obvious heat protection benefit. Be sure to look for the key words listed below when picking out your new product!
Moisturizing leave-in conditioners are the OG’s. They are beneficial for anyone across the board. Moisture is the essence of healthy hair, and without it our hair would be thirsty, breaking, and unruly as hell. Afraid of the word moisture because you’re afraid to get oily? Opt for a spray leave-in product as opposed to a cream which will still give you all the benefits without weighing it down.
Where my fragile babes at? You know, the ones who are addicted to going lighter at every appointment and just cant live without their hot tools?(please tell me I’m not alone here.) You will definitely want to look for a protein leave-in. Every color appointment, and every swipe of your iron is breaking down your hair’s natural protein. It’s crucial to give some of that protein back, and a leave-in is a great way to keep it locked into your hair until your next wash.
With the right products, you coarse-haired babes have some of the best hair out there. Full of body and can normally hold a style for days on end. So, for those with this type of hair, you’re going to want to find a good, smoothing leave-in conditioner to help tame the frizz down and keep it in place where you want it to be. It will be jam packed with silky oils, moisture, and nourishment to keep your hair looking fly, without fly aways.
And For All The Curly Girls
Curly hair tends to lack moisture, and that is a fact. If you are someone who has curly hair without frizz, we recommend a moisturizing leave-in like we discussed above. If you do have frizz, then we recommend a smoothing leave-in. Pair that with your favorite curl cream and let the magic happen!
