Why Should I Use A Leave-In Conditioner Spray?


If you shampoo and condition your hair in the shower, you may think a leave-in conditioner spray is unnecessary.

But it is necessary.

Leave-in conditioner does so much more than the wash-out conditioner you use in the shower.

It Protects Your Hair

Your hair is susceptible to damage every day. The wind, sun, and pollution all take its toll on your hair. Leave-in conditioner is a barrier, protecting your strands from drying out, getting tangled, and getting stripped of its nutrients.

Leave-in conditioner also protects your hair from styling tools. Blow drying, hair straighteners, and curling irons all damage your hair when not protected. A few spritzes of leave-in conditioner, though, and you’ll protect your hair and be able to style it.

Leave-In Conditioner Detangles your Hair

Whether you were in a windstorm, slept on your hair funny, or you just get tangled hair, leave-in conditioner protects your hair from damage.

Brushing out tangles breaks your hair if you’re too hard on it. Spraying conditioner on the strands makes the strands easier to manage, which means less pressure when you comb (never use a brush). Slowly work your way up from the ends to the roots as you gently work the tangles out after spraying it.

Helps Heal Your Hair

Just like your body needs vitamins daily, so does your hair. Leave-in conditioner is like nutrients for your hair. Spray it on your strands and leave it – you’ll give your hair the nourishment it needs so you have beautiful, bouncy curls or luscious straight hair that doesn’t look dry or brittle.

Keeps Colored Hair Looking Shiny

After a while, colored hair starts to look dull thanks to the sun and the environment. A leave-in conditioner spray provides the nutrients your hair needs while protecting it from the elements. Suddenly your color starts to bounce back and your hair looks healthy rather than as if it’s been washed-out just weeks after a fresh color.

Prevents Frizz

Curly-haired girls have a love/hate relationship with their hair. In the morning the curls are bouncy and beautiful and then by mid-afternoon, the curls are dry and a frizzy mess. Leave-in conditioner helps bring the curls back to life, even mid-day. It locks in the moisture so curls don’t get dried out and succumb to static electricity, dry air, and humidity.

Makes Hair Easier To Style

If you’ve ever tried to style dry hair, you know the frustration. When no style holds, a messy bun becomes the style of the day. When that happens over and over again, it gets old.

Leave-in conditioner makes hair more manageable so it holds a style. Whether you’re straightening, curling, or even letting it air dry, using a conditioner that you leave in your hair, gives it the moisture it needs to look healthy and strong, keeping the style you want.

How Often Should You Use A Leave-In Conditioner?

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach. If you have curly, excessively dry, or unmanageable hair, make it a part of your daily routine. Thick-haired women use it daily because their hair needs help staying moisturized.

If you have limp or thin hair, use it only after washing your hair (a few times a week) to start. If you find your hair gets dry in between uses, gradually increase your use, but don’t overdo it or you may have the opposite effect.

If you haven’t tried a spray leave-in conditioner – your life is about to change. It makes your hair much softer, more manageable, and less tangled. Styles happen easier, and your hair stays moisturized longer in between washes.

If you have thick or very curly hair, try it mid-day to spruce your hair up, giving it the moisture it needs. Suddenly instead of hating your hair at the end of each day, you’ll love how it looks and wonder if it’s actually the end of the day all thanks to a leave-in conditioner!
