Hair They Are: Great Leave-In Conditioners

A Sunsilk ad that really spoke to me!

I have thick hair that prefers to be frizzy even on non-humid days. No fun at all! My locks get oily at the crown, but dry at the ends. For me, a leave-in conditioner applied only at the bottom two inches works really well for me. It's also great for curly, coarse, and color- or chemically- treated hair.


Bethsunshine posed the question on good leave-in conditioners to CafeMoms. She said she wanted something that smells good and wasn't too expensive.

Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree Hair and Body Moisturizer (sold exclusively at salons) is one of my favorites. It usually costs $10 and up depending on salon. It's a leave-in for your hair, but it's also a body lotion with a slightly minty and very fresh scent. Love the double-duty! I also like the slightly candy scent of Sunsilk's Captivating Curls De-Frizz Leave-In Cream ($3.91 from Sunsilk also makes other leave-ins for different hair types.

Kelsobabeyy suggested Pantene Pro-V Smoothing All-Day Defense Creme ($4.49) since it's not oil-based and won't make your hair greasy or weighed down. Pantene is my favorite rinse out conditioner. They make good stuff for my hair.

Infusium-23 repairologie ($3.37) is the leave-in of choice for Gretchen0122 because it not only works well, but comes in a pump so it's easy to apply.
