The Best Leave-in Conditioners for Healthy, Hydrated Hair


While using the right shampoo and conditioner is important, if smooth, shiny, tangle-free locks are what you’re after, a leave-in conditioner can make all the difference. As the name suggests, leave-in conditioners are not rinsed out, which allows them to provide hydration and nourishment to your hair throughout the day. They’re perfect for those who struggle with dry, frizzy, or damaged hair, and are easy to incorporate into even the simplest hair care routine. These are some of the best leave-in conditioners to help you achieve the hair you’ve been dreaming of.
