If you want to keep your hair system soft and shiny, a regular care routine is key. It might sound obvious but you’d be surprised how often a good maintenance routine is neglected.
You might have nailed the routine of cleaning, drying and storing your hair system but still find that your hair system looks damaged, old, or dull.
If you’re looking for how you can keep your hair system looking good as new, then a leave-in conditioner is your answer!
A good leave-in conditioner will keep your hair system knot-free and soft even after months of wearing. Sound too good to be true? We are happy to tell you that it's not!
A good hair day can give you the confidence you need to take on the day’s challenges while feeling good about yourself. Using a leave-in hair conditioner is a great way of keeping your hair system in tip-top shape. These conditioners strengthen the hair strands while hydrating them, and keeps the hair system looking shiny and feeling soft to the touch.
What’s the difference between a regular conditioner and a leave-in conditioner?
You most likely already have a favorite conditioner that you like to use alongside your shampoo. The most obvious difference between the two is that a standard conditioner has to be rinsed off your hair system whereas a leave-in conditioner is applied after washing, and designed to be left in the hair system.
Can I leave in a regular conditioner?
Unless you want to damage strands of hair on your hair system, don’t use a regular conditioner in the same way as you would a leave-in conditioner. It’s easy to tell the difference between a regular conditioner and a leave-in conditioner, don’t worry!
Regular conditioners have a thicker consistency, are creamier and usually come in a shampoo like bottle. Leave-in conditioners generally come in spray bottles because they have a watery consistency and are easiest to apply by spray.
Can I use conditioners that are meant for regular hair?
Another big no is using leave-in conditioners that are not made for hair systems. Whether you use a synthetic or human hair system, make sure to use conditioners that are specifically designed for them. If you have a natural hair system, make sure to use a conditioner that is designed for that kind of hair. Likewise, if you have a synthetic hair system make sure the conditioner is meant for this hair type.
Take a look at Advent Hair’s range of leave-in conditioners to find one that’s best for your hair system. If you’re not sure where you should begin, try the Moisture Mist Leave-In Conditioner by Nearly Natural. With this one, it’s impossible to mess up because it’s compatible with every hair system. It also has the added pluses of containing aloe and hydrolyzed silk which increases the flexibility of the hair while providing an excellent sunscreen protector.
Another great option is the Remy Soft BlueMAX Moisture Lab 3 Step System which is a full moisturizing kit for natural hair hair systems — shampoo, conditioner, and a UV-protecting leave-in conditioner spray. If you have a natural hair hair system, this kit is a convenient way to cleanse, condition, and protect it.
Leave-in conditioners don’t just keep your hair systems soft and glossy for longer periods of time lots of them have the additional benefits of sunscreen protection. Many also include UV protection, which prevents oxidation of your hairpiece which can cause the color to dull over time.
How do I use a leave-in conditioner?
Now that you know the benefits of using a leave-in conditioner and how to choose the right one for your hair system, it’s time to learn how and when to use a leave-in conditioner.
A leave-in conditioner will have the best results if applied right after cleaning your hair system.
Once you’ve cleaned your hair system, you should put it on a mannequin head and begin to evenly apply the leave-in conditioner. Using a wide-tooth comb or your fingers, you can make sure the product is spread evenly through the hair.
If you feel like your hair system needs an extra boost more often than cleaning days, you can use some leave-in conditioner on other days too. Just remember to use the product sparingly and not to overdo it. A spray of a light mist is enough to keep your hair system looking fresh.
