Leave-in conditioner is good for people on the go. It enhances the shine and texture of the hair.

Sebastian Leave-in Conditioner (250ml/$175)

Sebastian's hair products are usually good - but not this one. It makes the hair sticky, not shiny, and the fragrance is too strong. It smells like you've just stepped out of a salon.

Catwalk Fast-fixx Leave-in Conditioner (200ml/ $68)

It's not sticky and it doesn't weigh your hair down. Use it when you need to restyle your hair but don't have time to wash it.

Boots Botanics Leave-in Volumising Conditioner (250ml/ $60)

It's a spray so it's easy to use, it smells fresh, controls frizz and makes the hair soft without being heavy or greasy. For the price, it can't be beaten.

Aveda Colour Conserve Foaming Leave-in Conditioner (200ml/ $150)

This light conditioning foam with sun filters is designed for coloured hair. If your hair is very coarse, you may need to use rinse-off conditioner before applying it for extra protection.

Kiehl's Leave-in Hair Conditioner with Panthenol Coconut & Sunscreen (236ml/ $275)

Perfect for beach babes, this leave-in conditioner contains sunscreen and protects the hair from sun damage. Great for dry or frizzy hair. Also a good detangler. Go easy to begin with as it's quite heavy.
