I’m always on the hunt for a great leave-in conditioner. None are created alike and all serve a purpose. You have your creamy leave-ins which are great when you need that extra dose of moisture or for creating twists/braids etc. (ex. Bantu Shea Butter Leave-In). There are leave-ins that are primarily for smooth definition, hold, and shine (ex. Paul Mitchell The Cream). You have your leave-ins that serve mostly to detangle and tame the hair (i.e. Kinky Curly Knot Today). Then there are those thinner liquid leave-ins that usually come in spray form. Many of these claim to condition or revitalize the hair with various vitamins and minerals. Usually I end up disappointed with these variations as they seem to be too watery and lacking the moisturizing capabilities that I seek. That was until I found this...
According to the Aveeno Website: “AVEENO® NOURISH+ CONDITION Leave-In Treatment does much more than nourish and condition — it quenches the thirstiest hair with a fusion of deep conditioners and moisturizers, recharging it with healthy new life. Hair is instantly revitalized and scientific studies show that just three uses helps repair dry, damaged hair.* And, using the Leave-In Treatment as part of a complete NOURISH+ regimen will help protect your hair from damage caused by thermal styling, resulting in up to 95% less breakage.”
I absolutely love this product! The feel of the product is thin but not watery. You can feel the oil in the product but it doesn’t leave a greasiness or heaviness on the hair. My favorite way to use it is to give my hair a mist while its damp and as a base for any other product that I might use. I also use it to refresh and moisturize daily.
What I Like About Aveeno Nourish + Condition Leave-In
- It’s thin enough to use in the convenient spray form but not so watery that it feels ineffective
- Moisturizing but not heavy or greasy
- The nozzle sprays very wide allowing for even distribution without overuse of product
- Serves as a heat protectant so I don’t have to use a different leave-in when I straighten
- Smells great
- Works for many textures
- Won’t break your wallet at about $7 for a 5.2oz bottle
What I Don’t Like About Aveeno Nourish + Condition Leave-In
Hmmmmm…you should be able to purchase it by the gallon
As you can see, I really like this product. If you are looking for a leave-in that you can use daily to refresh your hair, that is dual purpose for many hairstyles and types, moisturizing and replenishing, and plays well with other products…this one may be for you!!
