Why do we need a curly hair leave in conditioner?

Choose 
to use 
a leave-in 
conditioner
Everyone knows that curly hair needs hydration because it is prone to breakage and frizz is one of the daily challenges for girls with curly or wavy hair.
So using a leave-in conditioner for curly hair helps you untangle your hair, leaves your hair hydrated, curls become defined and frizz is no longer a problem.
Surely you are wondering then why it is not enough to use only a rinse out conditioner?
In essence, both products promise the same thing. 
If you know the LOC or LCO method then you know that the letter L comes from leave-in. 
The leave in conditioner for curly hair has a different consistency than the conditioner with rinsing. It is more liquid and because it is intended not to be rinsed, it contains ingredients that do not load the hair. The conditioner without rinsing has a thicker consistency, because it contains elements that, even after rinsing, are destined to remain on the hair. Thus, using a conditioner with rinsing as leave in can cause the hair to load.

Is there a difference between a leave in conditioner for curly hair and moisture milk for curly hair?

Milk
for
curly hair
Normally the leave in conditioner for curly hair is intended to be used immediately after washing. As mentioned above, its consistency is generally more liquid. Curly hair milk is intended to be used daily for hydration, so it can have a thicker consistency.
But if we look at their ingredients they are very similar. 
A good leave in conditioner for curly hair or milk for hair contains as a first main element water and then various oils, which help maintain the level of hydration of the hair.
In conclusion, we can use curly hair milk without problem as a leave-in conditioner.
Many manufacturers mention this when describing how to use their products. In fact, curly hair milk is a product with several uses: it can also be used as a leave-in conditioner, it can be used to refresh curls and even as a styling product.

Use leave in conditioner for curly hair or milk for curly hair in the routine of curly hair care.

As a general rule, leave in conditioner for curly / wavy hair is applied immediately after the hair has been washed, ie after shampooing. Leave in conditioner for curly or wavy hair can also be used successfully to refresh the curls or curls of the next day. The most used hair rejuvenation routine is the one in which the hair is slightly moistened in the morning, after which the leave in conditioner is applied. Then you can use a styling product or not.
In the case of curly hair milk, it can be used immediately after washing the hair, as a leave-in conditioner, or it can be used immediately after using a rinse conditioner. For the curls of the second or third day after we lightly moisturized the hair we can use curly hair milk.
