When I got tired of not having my hair smooth with hairspray, I decided to go out and try a new product: leave-in conditioner. I always thought leave-in conditioners were only for dried out and damaged hair. I imagined them as greasy, too creamy, and too heavy for my straight hair, which already needed some help in the volume department. Boy, was I wrong.
After trying a leave-in conditioner on my damp hair and air-drying it, I noticed that the frizzy hair was a bit more tamed. Sure, a few popped up here and there, but it was still a big difference before the product. And the best part? It stayed that way all day, and for a few days afterward. Now I apply the product every time I wash my hair (a few times a week), and I think it really helps nourish my hair and control the unruly strands.
If loose hairs aren’t your hair problem, a leave-in conditioner can help solve a lot of other problems too. There are formulas for different hair needs, so choose one that’s just right for you. I needed something lightweight, but you may need something thicker and creamier if your hair is very dry. Or maybe you need a product that provides thermal protection against heat tools if you use them a lot.
