Ahhh the leave in conditioner. The Holy Grail of products for natural hair. It's the cure-all for every curly hair woe of curly hair and the number one product in every product stash. It's meant to detangle the hair, moisturize it, prevent flyaways, soften, etc. etc. etc. Except, it doesn't. The number 1 challenge for many naturals who see us for hair consultations is hair dryness. And they use leave in conditioner. Regularly. Often everyday. And their hair is still dry. So what's up? If leave ins are so amazing, why aren't they working as intended?
