    Default Leave in Conditioner vs Moisturizer

    What is the difference between a Leave in Conditioner and a Moisturizer?

    Can I use my Conditioner as a leave in?

    Well, a leave-in conditioner usually moisturizes, so they're both the same thing. Unless the conditioner being used somehow dries out hair, which in weird cases does happen, I think, or leaves hair feelings crunchy.

    And yes! You can use a conditioner as a leave-in. I do this sometimes with my Suave Rosemary Mint conditioner. I only use a very tiny bit, though. Too much and I might make my hair too oily. If I use the right amount, it leaves my hair very soft and slick.

    I don't care to use my regular conditioner as a leave in. I prefer mineral oil to smooth frizzies. I just purchased some Nightblooming's Panacea and I would like to start using a tiny amount of this as a leave in.
