For many, there is nothing you anticipate quite like wash day. You almost always know when it’s coming (or when it’s supposed to come), you make sure you’ve got your calendar under control that day, and you’ve confirmed that you can hold that wide open gap in your schedule just for you – and your hair. Sounds familiar. For some lucky people, that gap may sometimes only need to be 30 minutes, but for many of us, we know that 30 minutes may barely be enough time for our deep conditioning treatment to set. Because wash day can be such a major production, any time that we can get back in our lives would be a blessing. After all is said and done – the washing, conditioning, and deep conditioning – how do you follow up your wash routine?
*Enter leave-in conditioner*
No matter how great your products are during your wash routine, you have probably finished up with more than a few tangles in your hair that you have to spend another x minutes combing out. However, if you’re following the LOC Method (which you should be if you’re not already!) you know you need to follow up with a leave in conditioner to give your hair the extra moisture it needs. LOC stands for leave-in, oil, and cream. Essentially your leave-in conditioner gives your hair those extra nutrients to soak up, and the oil seals it all in before you style it with cream. Sometimes working another product through your hair can throw it into a frenzy, adding even more time to detangling – but now there are leave-in conditioners out there that also double up as a detangler so that after washing your hair, you can kill two birds with one stone. Not all leave-in conditioners are created equally, but after much trial and error, I’ve narrowed down a list of the best detangling leave-in conditioners that will make combing through your hair easier than ever, and will cut down the time you spend tugging a comb through your hair in half, if not more!
