Fact: if you aren't using a leave-in conditioner, your tresses are majorly missing out

You may think that you don't need one especially if you're already using a regular rinse-out formula in the shower (Extra steps? No thanks.), but we're here to explain why they're actually a godsend for any lazy-girl haircare routine. Today's formulas not only prime and protect hair from all the damage it goes through on the day-to-day (think heat styling, towel drying, brushing, bleaching, etc.), but they can also take care of tangles, tackle frizz and flyaways, and add shine and strength. In other words, they can pretty much replace every other hair product in your collection. So if you're looking to add one of these multitasking formulas into your routine, look no further than the data-driven list below. We've used our trusted algorithm to round up the Top 10 leave-in conditioners on the market, all backed by best-selling buzz, editorial mentions, real user reviews, and more. Whether you want one that won't weigh down fine strands or an option that can handle even the kinkiest curls, keep scrolling to see and shop the products that made the cut. Opening image: @ouai
