Purpose of Leave-in Conditioner

To formulate a leave-in hair conditioner, you need to know the purpose and how it is used on the hair. The conditioner is applied after you shampoo and condition. Generally, you apply to towel-dried hair before detangling and styling. This will provide extra moisture and an easy comb through.

The conditioner should always be light in consistency, almost like a hair milk. It can be used by all hair types. The added moisture is excellent for maintaining curls. It does not build-up on the hair. It should leave the hair feeling soft, curls managed, shiny and sheeny.

Directions for Use

  1. Wash and towel dry your hair
  2. Section your damp hair so you can apply evenly
  3. Apply leave-in conditioner to the ends and work your way up to the roots and scalp
  4. The conditioner should be equally spread through your hair
  5. Use a wide mouth comb to gently comb through the hair

Tips: Concentrate on applying the conditioner to areas that are drier, such as the ends. Massage these areas longer and apply more product.
