WHAT IS A LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER?
Leave-in conditioner is a hair care product that is applied after a person cleanses their hair, which is left in the hair until the next washing. Leave-in conditioners help calm tangled hair, help control frizz and give a little moisture to dry hair. Most leave in conditioners contain moisturizers, silicones, protein and other strengthening and moisturizing agents. The products come in various forms including sprays, thick creams, and thin liquids.
Hair stylists often say that moisturizing the hair is just as important as moisturizing the skin. For people who feel their hair is dry, it may be time to investigate a few leave-in conditioners that might resolve this problem.
WHY IS A LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER IMPORTANT?
Leave in conditioners enhance conditioning that your hair has already received. When you condition your hair, you have restored suppleness and elasticity to your hair. When you rinse the conditioner out, you may lose some of the elasticity even though your hair is still conditioned. Using a leave in conditioner will help your hair hold on to the conditioning that it has already received. They will provide additional conditioning and help your hair hold on to moisture.
