The Best Light Leave-in Conditioners for Fine-Haired Curlies

Curly girls are unique. Whether wavy, coily, or curly, we have individual needs for our hair to be as beautiful and healthy as possible. As a fine-haired coily girl, I understand the struggle of finding products that will not weigh down my strands or make my hair feel coated.

When you factor in warmer months, the desire to be even less weighed down is ideal as we all love the carefree feeling of spring and summer and light strands that blow in the wind. Certain products give us that lighter feel and movement we desire but still keep frizz and crunch away like mousse which is finding a new life in today’s market.


The Best Leave-in Conditioners for Your Natural Hair

Moisture is our curl’s life force. Our hair thrives off of the proper balance between moisture and proteins, and despite knowing we have to keep this delicate balance, it is hard to maintain. Nature’s source of moisture is water but many are still unaware of the importance of water in a curly girl’s regimen. Now, some are under the impression that oils moisturize hair but they do not; they seal moisture in. Hair moisturizers are big business but many on the market have tons of emollients and oils but lack the water. The best moisturizers are water-based so if you are suffering from dry hair, make sure water is a main component of your moisturizing regimen. 

The Right Leave-In Conditioner for Your Natural Hair

After I did my big chop, I was left with a classic Teeny Weeny Afro. However, it wasn’t a perfectly curly and coifed one like you see in the magazines. I was left with multiple textures, scraggly ends, and desert dry hair. Fortunately, I was open to experimentation and understood that my journey was going to be a process, not a pit stop. Leave-in conditioners became a must-have for my regimen, and if I had known then about the insides and outs of purchasing them, I could have saved some Lincoln’s along the way.

A good leave-in conditioner is said to “help detangle strands, reduce fly-aways, tame frizz, and keep your curls soft and smooth” (Smith & Searle, “8 Best Leave-in Conditions for Hair”). However, many of us know that leave-in conditioners are a superstar product for additional moisture and frizz prevention. Despite this, few of us know exactly what types of leave-in conditioners are best for our hair and what it needs at that moment. Knowing this, can substantially increase the health of your hair and enable you to reach your hair goals faster.

Should I Use a Leave-in Conditioner or a Moisturizer?

the homie, @mamanaturalista

Knowing when and how to utilize a moisturizer or a leave-in conditioner can be quite difficult to determine no matter what level of curly hair experience you have. You are in good company if you’ve been wondering if you should replace your leave-in conditioner with the newest water or cream-based moisturizer on the market. Today, we analyze two Carol’s Daughters best sellers, Hair Milk Original Moisturizer Leave-in Moisturizer and Monoi Repairing Anti-Breakage Spray to distinguish the differences between a formulated moisturizer and a formulated leave-in conditioner.
Prior to the recent widespread acceptance of textured hair, leave-in conditioners were traditionally popular for women with straight hair while moisturizers marketed toward straight hair was uncommon. Many women with textured hair used grease and cream-based moisturizers quite frequently, but rarely used a leave-in conditioner. Today, products that women previously expressed no interest in are now being assessed for usability, regardless of ethnicity. This has left us with many questions and a thirst for understanding, no pun intended.

3 Reasons Why You Absolutely Need to Use Leave-in Conditioner

by Kanisha Parks of

Since going natural, you’ve probably questioned the importance of having a leave-in conditioner in your regimen. Some leave-in conditioners seem like an extra, unnecessary step in your arsenal of products and many naturals choose not to use them at all. Others, especially those who enjoy using the LOC method, always tend to have a leave-in conditioner handy.

Leave-in conditioners may not seem as important as using a shampoo or conditioner, but they actually serve many purposes: to nourish and moisturize the hair, prevent breakage and split ends, soften the hair, tame frizz, and aid in detangling. Many leave-in conditioners have water as one of their first ingredients: these are mainly great for replenishing dry hair with moisture. Still, others may not even have water listed as an ingredient. The focus of these types of leave-ins is more about sealing in moisture while ensuring easier detangling and smoothness. Both of them can also aid in prevention of damage/breakage, and strength.
