When you are looking for a moisturizing leave-in, make sure that water is the first ingredient. Water is always the source of the moisture your curls are looking for, but any other ingredients should serve to lock in that moisture so it doesn't just evaporate and leave your curls high and dry. If you want to be able to use the leave-in as a detangler, look for ingredients like behentrimonium methosulfate or slippery elm that will give your hair enough slip so that you can easily detangle your curls. Here are some tips on how to get the most out your leave-in:
- Section your hair off into 3-5 sections depending on your length.
- Work the leave-in into each section by working up to the roots from the ends. If it’s a spray, spray starting at the ends and move up to the roots.
- Smooth the product into your curls. Don’t pull or tug on hair as you work your product into it.
- If you want loser curls, apply the leave-in in a downward motion, gently smoothing it in with your hands, section by section and from root to ends.
- Take time to distribute the product well and coat each section of hair equally with the product.
