Oh, we’re with you when you tell us that the struggle to get perfect, smooth and conditioned hair, is real! But what if we also tell you that there is a way to fight back the frizz and land manageable hair almost instantly? And that too with the use of one kind of product! Yeah, we are talking about leave-in hair products mainly used to condition your hair and give it a desired shine and smoothness. These leave-in hair products come in different forms and meet various hair needs. And well, we are here to decode all you need to know about them!
Well unlike your regular shampoo or conditioner that needs to be rinsed out, leave-in products can be left in your hair until the next wash. Most leave-in hair treatments are designed to do something specific and are available in different types such as pre-shampoo, deep conditioners, detanglers, leave in creams, serums and even finishing sprays that aid in hairstyling. Remember, for best benefits, all of the above here need to be applied from the mid lengths to ends of your hair, avoiding your scalp.
For what it’s worth, we need to point you in the direction of this one leave-in detangler we tried, and fell in love it. We will tell you why in a bit. But there has simply been no going back from Motions Active Moisture Leave-In Detangler spray. Not only was it easy-peasy to use and nice and dreamy with the way it smelt so absolutely divine, but it also left our hair looking shiny and oh so manageable. It probably has got to do with the use of ingredients on this particular product – Argan oil, Shea butter and Coconut oil, a blend we all know now, works the best with curly, coarse or dry textures.
While we told you a little more about the varied types of leave in products above, we’d like to shed some more light on the different forms of leave-in products and by that we mean the consistency or viscosity of what to expect inside your leave in product. (Only, in case you wondered… ever!) So let us tell you that it could either come in a cream, spray or gel format. And to reiterate, you can leave them on the mid lengths to ends of your hair to instantly condition and moisturize it, even without a rinse. Sounds great, right? A leave-in product does save us a whole lot of time, especially if you’re in a hurry and do not want to use a regular rinse-out conditioner. While we will tell you that shampooing your hair should always be followed up by a conditioner, we know there are days when you need to make an exception. Leave in conditioners are the perfect solution to those days. Just applying a leave-in conditioner after hair wash will make it easier for you to detangle and style your hair quickly.
Well, we cannot leave out mentioning dry shampoos when talking about leave-in conditioners. The best part about them is you do not have to wash your hair after using a dry shampoo, it works to absorb the grease on your scalp and refresh your hair almost instantly. Save you from having a bad hair day! As such you see, dry shampoo is probably the only leave in you apply at your roots or scalp and also helps refresh or prolong a certain style or blow out in between washes.
As leave-in products work instantly, the process to use them is pretty simple. In case of oil-based leave-in cream or gel, just pour a liberal amount of it into the palm of your hands and then apply the product throughout the hair, barring your scalp. You can comb through to make sure that the product is evenly applied to all sections of your hair. Sprays can be more ideal at times, as they are slightly more light weight so they won’t weigh down your hair. We’ve had our own spree of trial and error before we finally landed on the TCB Naturals Leave -In Spray. It is enriched with shea butter and coconut oil which helped hydrate our hair. Even a little goes a long way with this product and it locked in moisture in our hair through the day!.
Well, we think that you’re now ready to wing it with leave-in hair products but do make sure to pick the right one that fits your hair requirements. In case you are looking for more products to help you out, read about these products that will leave your hair shiny and smooth.
