Liquid leave-in conditioners are slightly different from creamy leave in conditioners. The previous article, 18 Best Creamy Leave-in Conditioners for Natural Curly Hair, covered creamy leave in conditioners. However, there are instances when a creamy leave-in conditioner isn’t the best for hair.
Creamy Leave In Conditioners vs Liquid Leave-In Conditioners
There are 3 instances where a liquid leave-in conditioner would come into play for natural hair:
- When in a protective style such as braids or a weave. You can also dilute creamy leave-in conditioners in rosewater in this case.
- If you have thinner hair that’s easily weighed down by products, liquid leave-in conditioners are best.
- If you reside in a hot environment, heavy creamy based conditioners may annoy you.
Liquid leave in conditioners have water or aqua as their first ingredient (as do most creamy conditioners) and are usually sprayed on the hair.
If your hair is properly moisturized, then liquid leave-in conditioners are ideal between treatments with heavier cream based conditioners.
