How to use leave-in products
For the best possible results, check out some tips for a perfect application.
Apply on humid or dry hair
The best time to apply the leave-in is right after washing the hair when it is clean and still moist.
The best quantity
The amount should be proportional to the size of your hair, the basic rule is simple: those with short hair may need less product, while those with long hair need more. Keep in mind that straight hair will need less product than the curly one.
But I can guarantee that it’s worth the test, try your leave-in in many ways until you get the desired result. Your hair will thank you.
Avoid applying on the roots
Do not apply the leave-in to the hair roots. Otherwise, you can clog the follicles, which can slow the hair growth or enhance sebum production. Apply the leave-in along the entire length of your hair.
The final touch
If your goal is smoother and less volume hair, the tip is to comb your hair with a fine comb and let it dry straight. If the idea is to give more volume, create waves or define curls, the best way is to crinkle the hair from the bottom up. Have in mind that if you apply too much of the product, the results might be heavy and oily hair. The best way is to use a small amount and, if necessary, apply more.
No matter if you are brushing or using a straightener or a dryer, apply the leave-in before. The effect will be much more satisfactory since the components of the product react with the heat of the appliances. Also, many leave-ins offer thermal protection.
How To Choose The Right Product For Your Hair Type?
When choosing the product, choose the one best suited for your hair type. If you want to smooth the hair or define the curls, look on the label for this specific function. Also, even if you apply the product correctly, the result may not please you if the chosen leave-in is not suitable for your hair type. For that reason, we highly recommend keeping an eye on the packaging!
