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.
I’ll be sharing the best liquid leave-in conditioners for natural hair in this article.
I’ll also cover a comparison between creamy leave-in conditioners and liquid leave-in conditioners and when one is preferable over the other.
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.
18 Best Liquid Leave-in Conditioners for Natural and Transitioning Hair
Whether you choose a creamy leave-in conditioner or a liquid leave-in conditioner depends on your hair needs and requirements at that specific point in time.
If there are any other liquid leave-in conditioners you think make the cut, let me know in the comments section and I’ll update the list.
