Leave in conditioner recommendation?

Anyone have any?

I have partially bleached ombre hair and the ends get really dry.

I use Bleach Recovery occasionally but you need to be able to leave it in and rinse it out. I can't always be arsed and would prefer something I can put on when I get out of the shower and leave.

Any recommendations please lovely ladies of MN?

Not a leave in but I love Aussie Three Minutr Miracle. I use it once a week and it leaves my hair lovely and soft.

The Aussie leave in conditioner spray is lovely too, I use that and the one above!

The Charles Worthington one - moisture seal.

But having said that, now I've got into New Wash (genuine non foaming hair wash from the founder of Bumble and Bumble) i don't need to condition my hair any more. Don't blow dry it much either, but use either a little his Hair Balm if i've let it air dry, or Dressed Up if i want to blow dry.

It's life changing.

@GoodLuckTime I read about that a little while ago and was intrigued...where do you buy it from?

Off to check out the other recommendations smile

I buy online, direct from their website They are US based but do ship ot the UK. No UK suppliers yet.

The upshot of this is that it ain't cheap - 44 pounds a bottle (whereas its $40 dollars) so its more in pounds than it is in dollars at the moment. Direct exchange rates suggest it should be around 30 pounds.

I've joined their 'club' where you get a massive bottle / refill $98. I started using it in June and have just received my second order, so it lasts. Don't expect to need another until after christmas, so 3+ months away.

As i said, i've got two of their styling products and expect both to last over a year, as i don't use them every time I've washed, nor much of them when i do. So overall factoring in:
- fewer products overall
- less washing (I sometimes go three days between washes which i would never have done before)
- less time blow drying
- better condition hair
- better for the environment

I feel it's worth it. Hope it gets more popular and a UK supplier picks it up as the price will come down.

I have very fine hair i have never coloured. Could be shiny and gorgeous after washing, but easily heat damaged, could get lank, tended to greasyness. I would have to wash it every other day, then it needed conditioner, mousse, blow dry. And would still start to look heat damaged.

now it is naturally shiny once I've washed it and let it air dry. No halo of heat frizzed hair around my head. It can be a little flat, so i scrunch some Hair balm through it once totally dry to give a little volume. Looks great.

if i want to look a bit more va va voom i use a little heat on it nearly dry, using Dressed Up beforehand to protect and hold. Looks FAB when i do this.

Their take is, whatever your hair type, standard foaming shampoo strips out all the stuff your hair makes to care for itself and then it reacts to that. So dry hair gets dryer, greasy hair greasier etc. Conditioner etc is just to try and undo / replace what shampoo strips off. So if you don't strip it off your hair will be in better condition, naturally.

They say it suits any hair type and i can believe that.

Probably not for you if you WANT to do a lot of heat styling every day, but otherwise, for working with the natural state of your own hair to look great, it's a winner.

I've also got at least one full tube of the Charles Worthington leave in conditioner i don't know what to do with, as now I've got into New Wash, there's no going back.
