What is a Leave-in Hair Conditioner?
A leave-in hair conditioner is simply a conditioner that you leave in your hair instead of rinsing it off. It’s basically a hair product that is applied after you shower but you leave it on your hair until the next hair washing. It has several benefits over a normal hair conditioner including:
- Deeply nourishing hair
- Repairing damaged hair
- Detangle unruly and wild strands
- Reduce fly-aways
- Keep your hair sealed with moisture
- Tame frizz
- Promote silky and soft curls
- Add shine to dull hair
- Protects hair from damage
- And more
Leave in hair conditioners can be especially beneficial to people who have natural hair, curly hair, wild unruly hair, frizzy hair, damaged hair and dry dehydrated hair.
DIY Essential Oil Leave In Hair Conditioner Recipe
Before we move onto the recipe, let’s first look at the ingredient’s we’ll be using:
Distilled water – The base ingredient for this essential oil leave in hair conditioner, distilled water combines all the ingredients together into a solution. If you want your leave in conditioner to be extra special, substitute it for rose hydrosol – divine.
Aloe vera gel – Pure aloe vera gel is a magical ingredient. Seriously, it immediately seals moisture into your hair and makes de-tangling a breeze! It also provides hold for natural hair and acts as a styling gel.
Jasmine oil – This is hands down one of the most HEAVENLY smelling oils on the planet. And it’s incredibly moisturizing too! It also has powerful aphrodisiac properties. If you have jasmine smelling hair every single time, you’re a queen. I’d keep buying this oil over and over again. It’s the best hair perfume.
