Can You Put Leave In Conditioner on Dry Natural Hair?

Yes, you can put leave-in conditioner on dry natural hair. 

Usually, leave-in conditioner is to be used on damp hair when you’ve just jumped out of the shower. However, there are some leave-in conditioners that can be used on dry hair. For conditioners that you will use as a style refresher, it’s usually fine to use it on dry hair. 

However, some leave-in conditioners should not be used on dry hair, and should instead be used on wet or damp hair. 

Be sure to read the instructions on your leave-in conditioner to determine whether it should be used on dry natural hair.
