12 Leave-In Conditioners That Will Keep Your Curls Looking Healthy
Leave-in conditioners are an essential part of any hair care routine; they are literally a lifesaver. A leave-in conditioner is essentially a moisturising product that you apply to your hair while it is still wet after washing it.

Curly hair requires it much more than other hair types because it is more prone to becoming dry and frizzy. If you usually skip this step, you should start using leave-in conditioners now. Here are 12 leave-in conditioners that will keep your hair looking great.
