Don’t let dry and damaged curls ruin your day.

The end of the summer means going back to school (or work), as well as dealing with the aftermath of the sun: we’re talking hair being dry and damaged from over exposure to the elements (ahem, we’re looking at you holiday bunnies). Curly-haired girls: this can be especially true for you. The solution? A leave-in conditioner for curly hair, of course!

So, if your mane is feeling a little on the dry side, and it’s lacking its usual shine, then you’ve probably fallen victim sun-damaged hair (sigh). But don’t worry, you can help your hair get back to looking and feeling healthy. All you have to do is use a leave-in conditioner for curly hair! Take a look at our top picks below.
