Designed to slowly release hydrating and nourishing hair care ingredients while you wear (i.e. in-between washes), leave-in conditioners are the sidekicks you need in your hair care arsenal. But, like everything, it’s about finding the right formula for you. “There are so many different types of leave-in conditioners,” says award-winning hairstylist, Barney Martin. “Always go for one suited to your hair type. For example, nothing too oily for fine hair and a product with more oil for curly or damaged hair.”
JVN CONDITIONING MIST A brand new product for Jonathan Van Ness’s haircare line, JVN, the Conditioning Mist is a godsend for those wanting to manage frizz. Formulated with hemisqualane to improve hair strength and resilience, black spruce bark extract to protect against UV damage and colour fading and brassica seed polymer to help condition and detangle, this leave-in conditioner is hydration in a bottle.
OUAI LEAVE IN CONDITIONER A cult product for a reason, the Ouai Leave In Conditioner is perfect for a pre-heat styling boost of nourishment and protection. Formulated to aid in detangling the hair while also providing thermal protection, think of it like a pre-styling hair primer for smooth, shiny hair.
