Why do we need a curly hair leave in conditioner?
conditionerEveryone 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?
curly hairNormally 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.
