leave-in conditioner, hair moisturiser

When it comes to keeping tresses hydrated, no rinse products such as leave in conditioner and hair moisturiser are popular choices. However, they have different formulations and have different use.

Leave in conditioner

This should be used on damp hair after a good thorough washing. It’s a bit diluted and meant to be absorbed by hair. You can apply it on a daily basis if needed. It is used for conditioning hair and to keep it supple for easy styling. Some products have strengthening or heat-protecting properties. It is also lighter compared to hair moisturisers.

Hair moisturiser.

It can be applied on dry or wet hair to keep it hydrated and supple. Some formulations may be dense so check which is specially formulated for your hair type. It is used to retain moisture in thick, dry hair. Apply as needed until the next washing. This is best for thick, curly hair strand as it can weigh down hair.

    It’s well-known that leave-in conditioners should be in everyone’s rotation during the winter to help keep hair moisturized and healthy in harsh weather. While it’s important to switch up your hair care just as you would your skincare each season, but what I believe is that leave-in conditioners shouldn’t be abandoned once the weather starts to warm up.

    This really doesn’t work for everyone. I know it says “dry hair” but my hair always reacts weirdly to leave in conditioner. It gets super frizzy and hard to control. Does anyone know why that is?

    I rarely use leave-in conditioners because I have oily type of hair and it tends to oil it even more. I use hair masks and regular wash-off conditioners and my hair is still healthy. i guess leave-in stuff is good for some hair types, thick and long above all.
