Hi Beauty Brains,
I apologise before hand I have plenty a question!
I was wandering, is it okay to use a leave in hair product such as a cream with silicones in it.. and then straighten my hair 2/3 days later? What are the effects with silicone before and after heat styling? Some people say silicones are bad and then others say it's fine but used carefully with good conditioning products. To be honest all I care about it how it feels and looks, I want it to be soft and shiny.
What's the difference between leave in conditioner and conditioner formula wise? Is there some reason why you can't just leave in a normal conditioner?
Also why is there exfoliating ingredients like Lactic and Glycolic acid in haircare? What's the purpose of it?
Is protein better for certain hair types than others? I have a lot of slightly coarse, thick, very dry and curly hair.. a lions mane lol. When I've tried a leave in protein product it basically made my hair crunchy and not much else.. yet products with Keratin seem fine and I think that's a protein.
