What’s the Difference Between Leave-In Conditioner and Other Products?

What’s the Difference Between Leave-In Conditioner and Other Products?
Are you flagging a lot of overtime these days? Caffeinating in your makeshift home office? Teaching your kids how to distance learn like you’ve done it forever and squeezing in a workout in a corner of your family room that you now call the gym? Same! And all the while, doing the bare minimum for your hair? Also, same! Leave-in conditioner can be the perfect product for you during this crazy time so we broke down the difference between leave-in conditioner and other hair care products so you have a full understanding of what each product does.
Leave-in Conditioner vs. Regular Conditioner
The obvious difference between the two is that one you leave in and one is rinsed out! But you probably already figured that out! So, what actually is the difference between the two? Leave-in conditioner is meant to re-hydrate your hair between shampoos. Regular conditioner, which is applied after shampooing, is used to re-hydrate and strengthen your hair after your shampoo.
Leave-in Conditioner vs. Heat Protectant
While both products are meant to be left in the hair after shampooing, they do have different purposes. The difference between a leave-in conditioner and a heat protectant is that a leave-in conditioner is meant to protect your hair at the strand level from cold and dry air. Using a heat protectant is meant to protect your hair from any heat styling.
Leave-in Conditioner vs. Curl Cream
Leave-in conditioners, as mentioned previously, provide moisture to your hair, but don’t really do anything to support your styling efforts. Curl cream on the other hand, has a holding agent in it that will supplement your leave-in conditioner by helping to hold your desired style. The two products are a match made in hair heaven!
Rucker Roots Daily Leave In Conditioner
Actually though, when you’ve got a bottle of our magical Daily Leave In Conditioner spray at your fingertips, minimal time and effort is all you need to rock a low-maintenance mane. Apply it to wet hair for the “wash and go” look after a morning run. Or give your hair a quick spritz between Zoom meetings – who doesn’t love a midday pick-me-up that makes your hair look fabulous to boot?! Packed with vitamins and natural moisturizers to soothe, detangle, and refresh, our Daily Leave In multi-tasks almost as well as you do. You’ve got this!
