The answer to that question may not be as simple as you think. Choosing the right conditioner for your hair type requires more time than you think. Some of us like to experiment with different hair products before we can find the one, but some of us would rather spend more time at the store reading the ingredient labels instead of spending too much money on hair products. I personally love to take my time and read the ingredients. There are a lot of great leave-in conditioners out there. So the best way to find the right one is to be familiar with the ingredients in the product.

Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner is one of my favorite conditioners. Above are the ingredients in the product. When reading a product label, make sure you pay attention to the first ingredients on the label.

You can also use homemade leave-in conditioners made with all natural ingredients. Whatever conditioner you choose to use, make sure it is creamy enough; so you can get the best results.
