The 6 Best Inexpensive Leave-in Conditioners to Try This Fall!

by Sabrina Perkins of

Not everyone is looking for heavier conditioners in the fall. Leave-in conditioners are just as useful during colder months and great for hairstyles that do not require heavy butters or oils ,like twists and braids. Some of us still rock a wash and go year round (like me) or prefer twistouts, or braidouts and just like a light hold that allows hair movement.

We also like moisturized strands on the cheap because as we get closer to the holidays, we want to pinch pennies so we can have more funds for holiday parties, gifts and going out. Is it possible to do both? It sure is and we’ve got a list of the best of the least expensive leave-ins worth trying this fall and winter.


ApHogee Pro Vitamin Leave-In Conditioner
Known for their protein treatments, ApHogee also has a mega-potent leave-in worth giving a try this fall and winter. This quiet favorite will support all hair types and a wiz at eliminating frizz by sealing in moisture. Being well under $10 is an even better reason to give this deep penetrating, leave-in conditioner a try.

Aussie Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner
The least expensive on the list but don’t let that make you think it doesn’t work. Aussie Hair Insurance Leave-In Conditioner is a big fave among naturals because softens and smoothes hair instantly while helping to protect your hair against damage and frizz.
