An Alternative

Often we also find ourselves stuck in situations wherein having one drop of leave in conditioner could make all the difference. For those times when you run out use this trick:

Hand lotion can be used as a replacement for leave in conditioner. The ingredients can also work for your hair and help retain its sleekness. Lotion has a thinner consistency than moisturizer so it doesn’t need to be washed out.

Pro Tip: Use less than a pea-sized amount and work it through your hair

Caution: Don’t use too much or it will make your hair greasy
