Haircare routines are something that isn't really given much thought, unlike skincare. Your normal ritual probably consists of shampoo, conditioner, and maybe a hair mask if you're feeling a little ~*fancy*~. However, you may not know it, but there is a gaping hole in your regimen. Enter: Leave-in conditioner.
What is a leave-in conditioner?
If you're not that familiar with leave-in conditioner, it's a no-rinse product that you apply on freshly-washed locks. It provides ~extra~ moisture and makes your tresses more manageable and easier to style.
How do you use a leave-in conditioner?
Squeeze out a small, one peso-sized dollop of leave-in conditioner on your palm and massage it through damp hair, focusing on the midsection all the way to the tips. (Don't spread it on your roots as it will make them oilier!) Avoid applying too much product because it can make your locks greasy and it can weigh them down as well.
