We’ve all been there. Looking in the mirror as we pick apart the dull, lackluster appearance of our hair. Not as shiny as preferred, the colour not quite as vibrant, more tangly than desired, and difficult to manage. A world of potential, yet in that moment, it just appears flat. Bad hair days happen. But they shouldn’t be an everyday thing. One way we like to prevent bad hair days is by using a great leave-in conditioner.
What is a leave-in conditioner?
Leave-in conditioner really is a hair care staple that should be in everyone’s regular hair care routine - regardless of your hair type. It’s a quick and simple way to give your hair the additional nourishment it needs without weighing it down or taking up too much time. Typically, you should apply leave-in conditioner to freshly washed, damp hair before you begin styling. Unlike regular conditioner, leave-in conditioner is formulated to stay in your hair keeping it hydrated between washes. Perfect for all hair types, leave-in conditioning treatments reduce frizz, hydrates, protects and coats the hair to create a healthy look.
What are the benefits of leave-in conditioners?
Leave-in conditioner not only adds moisture to your hair for a smooth and silky finish to your hair care routine, but it also acts as a heat protectant, and detangles and strengthens your hair making it easier to style and less susceptible to breakage. Jack59’s leave-in conditioners restore damaged hair, prevent split ends, and reduce frizz without weighing your hair down.
How often should I use leave in conditioner?
How often you use leave-in conditioner can be determined by a variety of factors such as heat use, environmental exposure and the basic hair structure; however, we recommend using our leave-in conditioner during your wash-day routine. Our hair gets damaged by styling, the environment, heat styling, brushing, sun, and being exposed to the wrong pH levels ideal for our hair.
Different hair types benefit more than others, but everyone should use a leave-in. Curly hair, due to its curled structure, has a harder time for the cuticle to lay flat which means the outer layer can not hold moisture in as well. Heat damaged hair will have the same reaction as the cuticle gets damaged and can not lay flat leading to tangles and breakage. The real purpose of a leave-in conditioner is to add nutrients, create an ideal pH environment and help smooth the cuticle by adding a protective barrier.
