Do you prefer wash-out or leave-in conditioner?

The difference between wash-out and leave-in conditioner

It sounds a simple question for many of us. At some point I suggested that most people prefer the leave-in conditioner. People’s opinions are often based on their own perspective and it was the same with me. I had a busy life, planning a lot, working a lot and just didn’t want to spend a long time with beauty care or actually with anything that is not related to my goals. Later, I started to feel that it’s not worth rushing. Why not to slow down sometimes. Just take our time, leave the rush, relax and enjoy that time with ourselves. So which is for you? Wash-out or leave-in conditioner? Or maybe both are parts of your hair care routine.

What is the difference?

A wash-out conditioner is richer. It rehydrates and moisturizes your hair after cleaning, but it makes your hair weigh down if you leave it on your hair. All those agents in the conditioner may cause build up, too.

A leave-in conditioner has a lighter formula. It doesn’t close build ups. It not just rehydrates your hair after hair wash, but it may help to keep your hair more manageable between two hair washes.

About detangling, I didn’t realize any difference between the two types of conditioner. If I use any conditioner, detangling gets much easier, while using only shampoo makes my hair hard to manage. In my case, it’s as simple as that, but there are many factors to think about, before deciding. Like hair styling routine.

Can I use both?

As far as I see, it can be amazing for some and disappointing for others. About me, I’m in the second half. My hair is thin and using both is just simply too much, because it gets oily much faster. If you have dry hair, it can be amazing to use both.

It depends also on your hair styling routine. The more hot tools you use, the more possible it is that you may need both. Though they are the same type of products, there may help you about different things. A leave-in conditioner is an extra protection from one hair wash till the next one.

The important difference when using

There is a big difference between applying a wash-out conditioner and a leave-in conditioner. The former should be applied from the mid length of your hair to the ends. The latter should be applied from the roots to the ends (no scalp). You should use a wash-out conditioner on wet hair, but a leave-in conditioner can be used even on dry hair. It may help to comb your hair.

To sum up

Using a wash-out conditioner or a leave-in conditioner, or even both of them, is a personal decision. When you choose your path, you have to consider your hair type and your hair styling routine first. Moreover, your needs may change with the seasons and may be different while doing different activities. A summer holiday by the seaside, swimming in the salty water requires more care for your hair.
