Leave-in conditioner: How much and how to use

Posted by

New Delhi: Leave-in conditioners, also known as leave-on conditioners or no-rinse conditioners, are used after you shampoo your hair and before you style it. They’re applied to towel-dried hair. Unlike traditional conditioners, they’re not washed out. Leave-in conditioner provides extra moisture to the hair, protects it from damage, and helps detangle the strands. A leave-in conditioner is perfect for priming your hair. Adding that layer of moisture helps your stylers work much better. Leave-in conditioners are lightweight yet moisturizing enough for even low-density hair.

Always keep in mind that the amount you use can make or break your results, so always be mindful of that. Leave-in conditioner is usually applied to towel-dried hair after shampooing it. If you want, you can skip the conditioner that you use directly after shampooing your hair. But you can use both if your hair is particularly dry or damaged. Here’s how to use leave-in conditioner effectively.

How to use leave-in conditioner

After shampooing your hair in the shower, rinse thoroughly.
You can use a conditioner in the shower if required, but make sure to rinse your hair thoroughly afterwards.
Now gently pat your hair dry with a towel to remove excess water.
Apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner through your hair.
Brush your hair with a brush or comb to detangle it.
Let the hair dry or style it as desired.

How much leave-in conditioner to use

The amount of leave-in conditioner you use depends on your hair type, length, and thickness. Generally, start with a small amount (about a coin-sized to quarter-sized amount) and adjust as needed. You can always add more if necessary, but using too much can weigh down your hair and make it look greasy.

Rub the leave-in conditioner between your palms and then distribute it evenly throughout your hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends. Avoid applying too much product to the roots, as this can weigh down your hair and make it look greasy faster.

Using leave-in conditioner regularly can help improve the appearance of your hair by providing hydration, reducing frizz, preventing breakage, and protecting against environmental damage.
