The 4 Best Leave-In Conditioners
Dye jobs, chlorine, the sun…they all damage our hair. Occasionally, you may need to go see an expert stylist, but sometimes, you can repair your hair yourself by utilizing a great leave-in conditioner. Check out our top four picks!
Color-safe and sulfate free, Living Proof No Frizz Leave-in Conditioner transforms hair from a ball of frizz to just that – living proof that this is one of the best leave-in conditioners on the market. But this conditioner does more than prevent frizz from taking over your head. Its patented humidity blocking technology ensures protection against fly-aways and restores a healthy shine to brittle, lifeless hair. The proof is in the science behind the conditioner. Developed by doctors with degrees in genetics from M.I.T., the conditioner’s key ingredient, PolyfluoroEster, is a chemical that reduces the rate of surface friction while simultaneously preventing humidity from destroying your ‘do with frizz. For those with unruly, thick, or curly hair, this conditioner is worth the extra dollar.
For those living with brittle hair that is prone to breakage, Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave-In Conditioner is one of the best leave-in conditioners available. This spray-in conditioner leaves hair silky and smoother with every use, and it does not leave fine hair looking as if it has been unwashed for days, as many leave-in conditioners tend to do to fine-textured hair. The secret behind this conditioner’s incredible effectiveness is the soy and cocoa in its formula. Soy and cocoa have intensive repairing qualities that result in deeply conditioned hair that is both strong and manageable. The replenishing formula is applied to damp hair and repairs hair in less than two weeks of regular use.
This leave-in conditioner addresses a plethora of concerns. It is safe for color-treated hair, offers anti-frizz and heat protection, nourishes the scalp to prevent dandruff, reduces damaged and split ends, and wards off dryness while promoting shine. As if those reasons weren’t enough, this conditioner is sulfate and silicone free, as well as gluten free, paraben free, and free of harmful oils. This is only of the only conditioners on the market that is both PETA approved and carries a 100% guarantee. AG Hair Fast Food Leave On Conditioner is formulated for all hair types and, when used properly, will not weigh hair down. The only con to this conditioner is its price tag; however, sales are available in both salons and online retailers.
Before starting graduate school, I was a “dye-hard,” stripping my hair with bleach at least once every two months and re-dying it more than I would like to admit. My mother was absolutely horrified that I had not only ruined my natural color but my natural texture – a head full of, in her opinion, beautiful curls. Much to my own dismay, It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product completely restored my curls in less than two weeks of regular use. At the time, I was truthfully disappointed with how effective this lightweight spray was because I had no interest in restoring my curls and only used it to pacify my mother. Now that I’ve grown up, I use it regularly to prevent heat damage from my flat-iron and pesky split ends. Although this spray is more expensive than many, ranging between fifteen to twenty-five dollars on average, if it can repair hair that has been as chemically processed as mine, it really is a miracle product and undeniably one of the best leave-in conditioners money can buy.
