What is the best leave in conditioner for hair? If you're looking for a way to help keep strands soft and healthy, without weighing hair down too much, a leave in hair treatment might be a great choice. Leave-ins are designed to be applied after shampooing, just like regular conditioners. The only major difference? You don't rinse them out. This list includes some of the most popular leave in conditioners on the market today, so be sure to vote for the ones you've tried and loved (and vote down any you didn't like). Add any favorite leave-in hair conditioners that are missing; you can also rerank this list in any order you choose.

Leave in conditioners come in many forms. Some leave-ins are creams, designed to coat each hair strand and help protect it from all sorts of damaging elements. Other leave in conditioners are sprays, allowing for super-light coverage that still manages to keep hair protected from things like everyday heat styling. Which one is better? That's subjective. You might have to try a few different leave-in conditioners before you find your personal holy grail product. The best leave ins can tame frizzy hair, detangle pesky knots and leave hair full of body and shine.

While leave-in conditioners are designed for daily use, if your hair is particularly dry and/or damaged, you might do well to consider adding a great deep conditioner to your weekly routine. You could also switch out and use a rinse-out moisturizing conditioner as well. And of course, shampoo is important too. Check out this list of the best shampoos for damaged hair if your tresses are in need of rescue.
