Why You Should Use a Leave-in Conditioner After You Deep Condition


Chances are you know that deep conditioning is crucial to your hair’s health and appearance. But did you know that what you do after your hair treatments is equally important? You may have heard through the grapevine that you should be using a leave-in after your deep conditioner – it's great advice, and we'll tell you why in this article.

Leave-in Conditioner and Deep Conditioner: The Basics

Some may think they need either leave-in conditioner or deep conditioner – not both. That's not usually the case. Both products do some amazing things for the hair.

Deep conditioner is a heavy-duty hair lotion or cream you use every week or so for hair repair and rejuvenation. Leave-in conditioner is a more lightweight cream or spray you can use any time to top up on hair vitamins, moisture, hydration, and more.

3 Reasons Why You Should Use a Leave-in Conditioner After Deep Conditioner

Now that you have a basic understanding of what leave-in conditioner and deep conditioner are, it's time to get into why you should use a leave-in after a deep conditioner. Read on!  

1.      Deep Conditioner Isn't Always Enough

Though a deep conditioning session now and again may be enough for some, that won't be the case for everyone. Everyone’s hair is different and has unique needs.

For example, those with excessive split ends or chronic hair dryness will need another layer of hydration (a leave-in) after each deep conditioning session to promote hair health.  

2.      Leave-in Conditioner Aids in Detangling and Styling

Once you slather your deep conditioner onto your hair, you’ll witness your tangles melt away. But after rinsing off that slippery deep conditioner coating, you’ll be disappointed when your hair start to tangle again. Leave-in conditioner adds slip back to your hair to aid in detangling and make your hair easier to style.

3.      Leave-in Conditioner Helps to Shield the Hair from Outside Influences

Yes, deep conditioner does offer considerable protection from outside influences. But that protection wanes with each passing day. Leave-in conditioner also offers protection from offenders like pollution, UV rays, humidity, and heat. And you get to reapply the product repeatedly as you please.

Combining the two (leave-in and deep conditioner) results in better-protected hair overall.

How to Use Your Leave-In Conditioner After Deep Conditioning

The average person will want to take advantage of the benefits of using leave-in conditioner after deep conditioning. And we say go for it! Here are some tips to get the most out of this hair care practice:
