The Best Leave-In Conditioners for Every Hair Type

Like moisturizer, but for your hair.

leave in conditioners

Even to this day, the word "frizz" almost gives me an anxiety attack. It brings me back to the days before I knew how to take care of my curls, when I would–forgive me, curly gods!–brush my curls, which naturally gave me a head of frizzy, brittle hair. Now that I've learned a few tricks, I know that frizz is actually the result of damaged or dehydrated strands. Add in some humidity, and it's a full on Bad Hair Day. Whether your hair texture is straight, wavy, curly, or kinky, all of us are susceptible to dehydrated. Hot tools, chemicals, and even changes in weather all can suck moisturize from our hair. The solution? Give your hair some extra hydration. A standard conditioner that you use in the shower can only help so much. A leave-in conditioner should be used on wet or towel-dried hair to help protect your hair from heat or humidity, while also nourishing and hydrating each individual strand so you're left with healthy, shiny hair. Whether you're looking for something specifically designed for curls, or you have fine hair and you're worried about weighing it down, there is a leave-in conditioner that will work for you. Below, 17 of the best leave-in conditioners for every texture, budget, and hair goal.
