What is leave-in treatment spray?
Everyone uses shampoo. Conditioner comes a close second. Hair treatment, however, isn’t as common. Why? These treatments take time to work their magic. For best results, wash-out treatments need to be left in for at least several minutes, if not overnight.
That’s why we’re so excited about leave-in treatment spray – aka leave-in conditioner! It promises intensive care but using it won’t take you more than a minute. A leave-in treatment spray doesn’t need to be worked in and washed out: you simply spray it in, and it stays in your hair, providing instant nourishment.
What’s the difference between conditioner and leave-in treatment spray?
A conditioner seals the cuticle of the hair after it’s been roughened by shampooing, thus smoothing the surface of the hair. It leaves hair smoother, shinier and easier to comb through. Also, a sealed cuticle traps more moisture in the hair, which is especially beneficial for dry hair.
Compared to a conditioner, leave-in treatment spray contains highly concentrated ingredients to ensure hair is deeply nourished and protected from external stressors such as UV light and heat.
Why does your hair need leave-in treatment spray?
Conditioning care – whether you use the rinse-out kind or a leave-in spray, it’s critical to the care of your hair. While shampoo and conditioner clean and nourish the surface of your hair, leave-in treatment spray provides intensive care.
You should deep condition regularly, especially if you’re letting your hair grow. It’ll make the hair more resistant by moisturizing the ends and reducing susceptibility to splitting and breakage.
