If you have fine or thin hair, leave in conditioner can be frustrating—it takes a few tries to get one that doesn't make fine hair oily or make ends look piece-y. That's why we take the leave in conditioner homemade route: natural ingredients, easy to make, and customisable enough to be worth the trial and error (ahem, no more spending $30 on a spray you can't return!)
Depending on what you need from a leave in, it can enhance your hair's texture, meaning softer, smoother, or more manageable. Different add ins to your leave in conditioner recipe can give you all of these, especially great if you wavy, curly, or coily hair.
You can use your leave in conditioner DIY on wet, freshly washed hair. You can either apply directly to wet hair or towel dry it so it's just damp.
First shake. Then spray this leave in conditioner recipe on your hair, focusing on the ends and any areas that need extra moisture. For better dispersion of the product, comb through your hair with a wide-toothed comb or tangle taming brush. You can air dry or style your hair as desired!
This DIY leave in conditioner recipe is simple and easy to make. It contains natural ingredients that are nourishing and moisturizing for your hair, and it can be customized to suit your hair needs.
