What is Leave-in Conditioner?

As the name implies, leave-in hair conditioner hydrates and conditions, but does not need to be rinsed out. Yet, some confusion still remains about how to use leave-in conditioner and how to choose the best leave-in conditioner. We’re going to demystify it all and give you pro tips on finding your dream leave-in hair treatment.

What does leave-in conditioner do?

Most likely, you already use a rinse-out conditioner after shampooing (if not, find your best conditioner now!). But did you know it’s not enough? While regular conditioner does moisturize the hair follicles, the effect wears off relatively quickly and its benefits are limited. When you follow up with an after-shower leave-in conditioner, you’re giving your hair the royal treatment!

How to find your best leave-in conditioner

For specific hair concerns, your regular conditioner probably needs a bonus boost. That’s when a specially formulated leave-in conditioner for fine hair, dry hair or curly hair does its magic.

There is a variety of leave-in conditioners on the market with different names like “leave-in hair treatment” or “leave-in conditioner spray.” Look for ingredients and benefits that satisfy your hair’s needs, the season and how you style.

How often should I use a leave-in conditioner?
After shampoo and rinse-off conditioner, leave-in conditioner is the third step in every complete hair routine. It’s best to choose a three-step system formulated to work together, like Whole Blends Honey Treasures or the Fructis Grow Strong Thickening trio.

Can I sleep with leave-in conditioner in my hair?
Yes! Leave-in hair conditioners are designed to keep delivering their extra benefits long after they’re applied.

Can I replace my regular conditioner with a leave-in hair treatment?
It’s not recommended because leave-ins are made to pick up where normal conditioners for hair leave off. Look at leave-in conditioners as the final word in beautiful hair!
