For When You Can Knot Be Bothered: Leave In Conditioner
As the name suggests, a leave in conditioner is applied to the hair without the need for rinsing. Anyone with knotty hair will know that these conditioners are actual life-savers. Even when you get those knots where you feel like a hair cut is a must, a spray and a good detangling brush will be enough to get you through. Many salons use them too when cutting a clients hair over regular spray bottles, as they also offer heat protectant capabilities too! There are so many reasons why you should invest in a good leave in treatment.
Benefits Of A Leave In Conditioner
Apart from removing knots in the hair, leave in conditioner has many other reasons why it deserves to be in your life. Firstly, it helps to provide added moisture into the hair. Moisture is absorbed into the hair while the cuticle is open, which in turn helps to hydrate and soften the hair. Secondly, it continues to add nutrients to the hair for days after the wash. It's said to give you a protein boost to really give your hair a boost.
Our favourite feature about these conditioners is that they also act as a heat protectant. You just apply some on damp hair before conducting a blow-dry. It will then help to act as a barrier to heat damage. In saying this, you can still use your hair protector too for added peace of mind. Finally, it helps to freshen the hair. Sometimes you just need that midweek boost to push through a few more days before washing, this is it. Between dry shampoo and leave in conditioner, you'll push the limits of hair washing!
