Question 6: What’s the best leave in conditioner for dry brittle hair?
Leave-in conditioner is the perfect weapon to pull out when your hair needs a bit of TLC, or you’re looking for a quick way to pamper yourself.
After your usual cleansing routine and before the hair is dry try applying your leave in and then combining with the Styling Serum. The formulas both keep attracting and sealing in moisture for the whole day.
No time to wash? Drench thirsty hair with Moisturising Detangling Spray first. This triple combo will leave the hair soft and easy to comb, plus give you super shine.
When hair is really dry, we sometimes lose a little bounce in the curl. When still drenched, try a little scrunching, with a Microfibre Towel after raking in product. Adding our Styling Serum as a last step, with Tilia Tomentosa Extract, irritated hair is easy to comb, plus the leave in conditioner is more easily dispersed and absorbed retaining volume, lightness and shine.
Question 7: Can I use a leave in on relaxed or colour treated straight hair?
Straight hair do care!
If bleach blonde hair is the sound of summer, then you brunettes have autumn all to yourself, but you know coloured hair has that touch of porosity. It just needs that little bit extra!
We say go full force with the Leave in Conditioner, but this time apply to damp hair just before it's dried.
Use your diffuser, but remember diffusers are meant to gently halo the head, they’re not meant to penetrate your hair or touch it, therefore, giving the impression of crisp, air dried curls.
Whether your hair is curly or straight, you want a leave in conditioner that has added proteins and hydration to fortify the hair, so it has to be our Curl Defining Leave in Conditioner.
After all that processing you need a product free from parabens, SLS/SLES, silicones, synthetic fragrances and mineral oils. This helps prevent build up and the hair being weighed down and greasy. It also preserves your colour and restores vitality. With added Quinoa, for moisture retention, damage protection and heat control it can be used as a styling and conditioning cream to enhance and define your curls.
Question 8: Can I use a Leave-in on protective hairstyles?
Remember, remember the 5th of November, gunpowder, treason and frizz!
Protect your hair!
Daily conditioning protects your hair around those crackling bonfires. If you’re braiding your hair this Autumn then a leave in conditioner is a great pre condition and is even better when undoing your braids. Lots of you have told us you use a little Leave In Conditioner or Styling Serum to keep your intricate styles in place and liberally spray with our Moisturising Detangling Spray before undoing!
Question 9: What’s best for bleached or damaged hair?
Condition for health!
Leave-in conditioner is a power tool for all hair types. When your hair is in need of a little TLC the porosity can often be low. This means the moisture goes in easily, and leaves just as quickly. CurlyEllie Curl Defining Leave In Conditioner is a must have hair repair leave in conditioner.
Aqua and Cetearyl Alcohol (not to be mistaken for its drying cousin!) team up to give your hair a non-drying fatty alcohol treat, that’s non-drying and non-irritating. This means you can apply daily from root to tip for a soft, healthy glow. And if you weren’t spoilt enough, we’ve added soothing Gold of Pleasure Seed oil.
For bleached hair, it's true some leave in conditioners can really weigh the hair down, especially at the roots. So why not switch to just a Moisturising Detangling Spray? The light mist, with Aloe and Broccoli, possesses the same conditioning properties as a cream. This will keep your curls and colour fresh as it strengthens.
You can look forward to smooth and supple hair over time without that heavy weighed down feeling that can often get in the way of fabulous locks.
Question 10: What’s the best leave in conditioner for fine, thick or coarse hair?
Every hair type needs a leave in!
Our best leave in products are not formulated in the same way, so there’s something for all hair types.
For fine hair, our protective Quinoa protein leaves your hair smooth and manageable, and you can find it in our lightest fine mist spray, the Moisturising Detangling Spray. The superstar ingredient Aloe Vera which is a great moisturiser but it won’t weigh the hair down or feel oily.
If you have thick or coarse hair, low porosity is really common, so a wet or damp application is best. Make sure to rinse hair in warm water to really open the cuticles up. If your hair tends to get heavy, oily or even get a lot of product build up, you can use alternate days of leave in conditioner or switch out completely for the Moisturising Detangling Spray.
All three of these hair types can really crave moisture. Thankfully, our Leave In Conditioner can be paired up with the Moisturising Detangling Spray or the Styling Serum, to help ingredients like protein building Quinoa and hydrating Aloe penetrate the hair shaft. You can use all three products on dry or wet hair, but the collection will work best on wet hair for low porosity.
If you have sealed cuticles on top, when water does penetrate it can take a long time to dry. You can diffuse on a low heat/low power setting and make sure to hold your dryer a couple of inches away from the hair.
