If your hair is relaxed then you already know the upkeep that is involved with making sure that it is healthy and strong. I remember all too well that feeling of dry and brittle strands between my fingers from days of neglect versus that incredible feeling of soft, smooth hair when I made sure to stay on top of my hair care regimen.
Needless to say, relaxed hair requires patience, consistency, and quality products from beginning to end. This includes your leave-in conditioner! For a lot of women, on wash-day, the last product to be applied is a great leave-in conditioner for relaxed hair.
As the last line of defense for your hair after washing and conditioning, you want to make sure your hair is protected, moisturized, and strong as you face the outside elements! Let’s take a look at the top five leave-in conditioners for relaxed hair. Come on!
This incredible product is a part of the Aphogee brand. An excellent line of products geared towards hair repair and treatment, especially for chemically treated hair.
This product specifically can be applied on wet or dry hair and is especially good to use after a chemical service. The antioxidants from green tea and the inclusion of keratin provide a strong defense against past, present, and potential damage from relaxers.
The active ingredients are triggered by natural body heat and/or heat styling tools making this an ideal product to use before using a flat iron to protect the hair making it an ideal leave-in for relaxed hair.
Promoted as a detangler and heat protectant, this leave-in conditioner is perfect for, really, any and all textures and types of hair whether chemically treated or not. It provides incredible moisture to the hair aiding in detangling and providing nourishment for the hair.
Many assume that this product and many others within the Jane Carter line are only for individuals with natural hair because of the nature of other products within the brand such as their Quench Curl Hydrating Spray and Curl Defining Cream.
However, do not let that steer you away from this product or the brand! Since this product is used as a heat protectant it makes a great leave-in conditioner for relaxed hair. Though the hair has been made chemically straight, it is not uncommon to flat-iron your relaxed hair from time to time. Arnor and protect your hair with a powerful leave-in conditioner!
Known globally for its signature little blue bottle and incredibly effective results make this leave-in a perfect choice for relaxed hair. This product is designed for individuals that have had either Keratin treatments or straightening treatments performed on their hair.
The keratin helps protect the keratin that is already in our hair making it stronger and protecting it from potential heat damage. Once again, that makes this an ideal leave-in conditioner for relaxed hair. Protein rebuilding, heat protection, and women-owned? Sign us all up!
Is it possible for Shea Moisture to ever fail us? I sure don’t think so! From what I personally think is one of their best collections, this leave-in conditioner is a must-have for healthy hair in general. Created for natural, chemically processed, and hair that is heat-styled,
this leave-in conditioner makes caring for relaxed hair a breeze.
The standout ingredients in this product are Jamaican Black Castor Oil, shea butter, peppermint oil, and apple cider vinegar. This blend of ingredients softens, moisturizes, detangles, and strengthens the hair making it an optimal product for relaxed hair.
Also, the amount that you get for the price is very reasonable and a little goes a long way because of the texture of the product. Lightweight and wonderfully smelling, this leave-in conditioner will most definitely not weigh your hair down while still providing your hair with what it needs.
Our final top leave-in for relaxed hair is milkshake’s Leave In Conditioner for all hair types. This product manages to hit a lot of hot spots on our radar for leave-ins for relaxed strands making it a great pick for many. The primary ingredient in a lot of milkshake products is milk
protein which is fantastic for nourishing the hair’s structure.
The result is a relaxed head of hair’s dream! Strengthened hair that is also moisturized and conditioning. Elasticity is restored, and the hair is shiny, smooth, and ready to be styled.
Points go up for this product and its color-safety feature. No need to worry about this product fading your color, instead the ingredients serve to protect and preserve the hair, making this a definite win!
The better your products are the more improvement and effect you will see on your hair when they are used consistently. Relaxed hair requires T.L.C. and this starts with the products you use on it. Your leave-in conditioner can either greatly enhance the effectiveness of your shampoo and condition or deep condition or make it all for nothing.
