What's a Leave-In Conditioner?

Leave-in conditioners are applied to damp hair and left in the hair, without rinsing, to retain moisture. Leave-in conditioners are generally lightweight and free of oils, so they don't weigh the hair down. These products are best for keeping hair soft and shiny, and making hairstyles more manageable.

Leave-in conditioners are great for those with thin or fine hair. Consider Wella SP Volumize Leave-In Conditioner to add body whilst conditioning.

Leave-in conditioners are also good for people who want to add hydration between shampoos. Those with coarse or brittle hair can use a leave-in conditioner daily to top up moisture and make hair easier to style. We recommend KEVIN.MURPHY Staying.Alive

A lightweight mist containing extracts of Ivy, Iceland Moss and Silk Proteins. Designed to detangle, smooth out and repair damaged hair.

What's a Rinse-Out Conditioner?

The classic rinse-out conditioner is applied to wet, freshly washed hair and rinsed out after a minute or two. Shampoo can be drying, so conditioner is used to rehydrate, strengthen, and protect strands. Rinse-out conditioners also smooth the cuticle to detangle and help tame frizz.

Is a Rinse-Out Conditioner for Me?

To ensure healthy hair, you should condition your hair every time you wash it. If you're not using a mask, it's recommended that you use a rinse-out conditioner. It is important to apply conditioner correctly to enjoy the benefits without over-conditioning.

There are many types of rinse-out conditioner available, and your choice depends on your own hair concerns. Whether you want volume, hydration, smoothing, or colour preservation, we have a large selection of conditioners to choose from.

What's a Deep Conditioner?

A deep-conditioning treatment is applied and removed like a rinse-out conditioner but left on for a prolonged amount of time in between. Deep conditioners provide maximum nourishment and often contain oils that moisturise the hair.

We recommend Oribe Masque for Beautiful Color, a cuticle enriching treatment that protects colour treated hair from damaged.

Is a Deep Conditioner for Me?

It's universally recommended that you build a deep-conditioning treatment into your hair care routine. Your frequency of use depends on your hair type. If you have fine or thin hair, a couple of times a month is enough. If you have very dry or brittle hair, you should consider using a deep conditioner with every wash.

Perfect for dry fine hair, this nourishing masque will leave your hair feeling healthy and smooth without weighing it down.

Fine hair responds best to the lighter consistency of Kérastase Nutritive Masquintense Irisome - Fine Hair 200ml. AndMOROCCANOIL Intense Hydrating Mask 250ml is perfect for someone with coarse hair. Whether you want to repair your hair, add gloss, or preserve your colour, there's a deep treatment for you.

It's important to understand the purpose of different conditioners in order to work out the best hair care routine. Experiment with leave-in, rinse-out, and deep conditioners in order to find your recipe for healthy, nourished hair.
