The short answer is yes.
It’s kind of the long answer too, but that would involve talking about how leave-in conditioners are less dense than regular conditioners, and how they do an amazing job of detangling hair, keeping frizz to a minimum, and checking those flyaways.
It’s not going to work well if you choose one that is too heavy for your hair or if you apply too much. A few spritzes of a good quality leave-in conditioner should be all you need for maximum conditioning power without greasy or weighed down hair.
I’ve talked about my coarse/frizzy/curly/unruly hair so many times on this blog that I will spare you the retelling, but I always have a spray-in leave-in hair conditioner for a few reasons:
- I need it after a shampoo to help detangle the wet mess that sits on my head
- I will use anything that helps keep frizz to a minimum (I realize that frizz free is simply a pipe dream in my case)
- When my hair is left curly, it makes a fabulous refresher spray to get my curls somewhat bouncy or at least more pulled together
- My hair is dry, dry, dry, and soaks up any conditioner I put on it
I’m currently using White Sands Spray Leave In Conditioner because of their awesome font:
No, I’m kidding. But I seriously love their logo.
I’m also kind of obsessed with orchids right now, and the Spray Leave In Conditioner combines orchid flower extracts with green tea extracts for anti-oxidant properties, and these are important in my anti-aging hair care routine. Yup, I actually pay attention to that sort of thing. I’m not getting any younger. It also contains silk proteins and amino acids.
It also has a very cool feature that I can’t properly describe so I’m just going to quote it:
The special polymers in the spray find the most damaged parts of the strand like my ends and condition them more. This “selective conditioning” feature is done because of electrostatic attraction, as highly damaged areas of hair possess a higher negative charge.
Of course, all of my ends are damaged, so it probably doesn’t matter much but you never know!
