Should Conditioner Be Rinsed Throughly Or Is It Ok To Leave A Little In Your Hair

Black woman with wet natural hair splashing waterI have been seriously considering the resolutions for my hair journey this year. There are things that I learned last year that I will definitely take with me and then there are others I'm on the fence about.

We all have come to the realization that conditioning is a vital part of a hair care regimen. I have always heard about leaving in a little bit of your rinse out conditioner in your hair for a smoother finish since it keeps the cuticles laid.

Yet my thinking was that leave-in conditioners, actually formulated for that purpose, were the obvious options.

Still I found out that many ladies are opting to use rinse out conditioners as daily moisturizers and there are also those who may not moisturize daily, but opt not to rinse it out entirely on their wash day.

About Marsha Buchanan


As a Jamaican girl raised in a devout church family headed by my mother, I have always had my natural hair, no chemical processing. After years of mistreating it , often ignorant of that fact, I began my healthy hair journey in January 2013 in fact, I have seen to it that my entire household falls in line where this is concerned. When I am not poring over some hair blog or forum I spend my time teaching English to rowdy high school students (ok maybe I have some little sweethearts in the mix), mothering the most adorable two year old on this globe, or rushing to meet the deadline for a writing project on Elance. In my spare time I enjoy a stroll along the beach with my doting husband.

Do whatever you want, it’s your hair…if you want it super clean or covered with conditioner its up to you. Whatever the outcome there is no “wrong” way and no 100% “right” way to do anything…. Everything is relative to the individual and her desires. In the end her hair results are her choice to deal with…. I’m tired of all these hair rules.
