It's Official: These Are the Best Leave-In Conditioners for Dry Hair



For people with dry hair (like yours truly), styling with heat tools is much more than time-consuming. It's a decision you make that can upheave your hair health for weeks after. I’m not being dramatic when I say straightening my hair, just once, will all but leech the moisture out of my strands. My hair might look good for a day or two, but soon after, the texture becomes rough and brittle, frizz erupts everywhere, and split ends become the norm.

Sure, I use a moisturizing shampoo and I apply a more-than-recommended amount of conditioner, but that doesn’t change much. I all but soak my head in a bucket of coconut oil, but that requires time and patience (which is why I don't do it nearly as often as I should). So while it might seem obvious, I didn’t think about introducing a leave-in conditioner to my routine until I was gifted Verb’s Leave-in Mist ($14). Now, I keep a bottle on me at all times. And guess what? It works. My hair looks and feels healthier because I've added one more moisturizing step to my haircare routine. Keep reading to see the best leave-in conditioners for dry hair.

Now that you know the best conditioners, see the best heat protectants, so you can style away without fear of damage!
