There are lots of hair products out in the market that promises to keep our hair looking healthy and shiny from root to tip, and we love and use them on a daily basis. One of the products we keep coming back to whenever we need a quick hair fix on-the-go is the good ol’ leave-in conditioner!

So we’re here to talk about the wonders that it does to your hair, keeping your hair feeling smooth and frizz-free all day.

1. It’s a hair moisturizer

A leave-in conditioner’s main intent is to moisturize hair. If your hair is naturally dry and your bathroom conditioner just won’t do the trick, then it’s time to consider adding a leave-in conditioner to your routine.

2. It could undo the damage your hair has gone through over time

How do you know if your hair is damaged? The obvious signs that your hair is suffering from damage is if your hair breaks easily and has split ends. Leave-in conditioners not only help to nourish hair but also help it get stronger over time. Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-On Cream, for example, has Cream Silk’s Hair Reborn Actives that deeply nourishes hair with every application.

3. It reduces frizz and unruly hair

Remember when we said it’s perfect for all types of hair? This is especially true for those with curly hair. If you’ve lived with curly hair all your life, you would know that frizz is the number one enemy of kulot girls. To keep your hair in check, apply a coin-sized amount of leave-in conditioner anytime your hair feels dry and fuzzy.

4. It makes it easier to remove hair knots

If your hair always gets tied up in knots, don’t brush it immediately as that will cause some serious hair breakage and hair fall. Use a leave-in conditioner on the ends of your hair first to moisturize and detangle.

5. It shields your hair

Styling your hair every day with heat styling tools such as curling irons, blow dryers and straightening irons add damage and stress to your tresses. So, coat your hair with a leave-in hair conditioner before using your heat-activated styling tools to protect your hair strands.

6. It keeps flyaway at bay

A leave-in conditioner can improve the manageability of your hair. It will also soften the hair texture, which will enhance styling. It’s perfect for curly hair when you just want to add gorgeous bounce to your curls. You can reapply mid-day to re-moisturize your hair and refresh your style.

7. It adds luster to Color-Treated Hair

Using a leave-in conditioner can revitalize damaged, color-treated hair and protects hair from harmful rays. It also shields the hair from other environmental factors that can lead to hair discoloration. It will help to make your hair color look more shiny, vibrant and helps prevent fading.
