Top 5 Detanglers and Leave-In Conditioners – Staff Picks!
If you’re looking to detangle or de-frizz hair, you’ll want to start with a good detangler or leave-in conditioner. Both are types of hair conditioners, so they work similarly to make hair more manageable. If you’re looking to specifically add moisture and shine to your strands, you’ll want to opt for a leave-in conditioner.
Different products work better for different hair types, so it’s a good idea to test a few out to see what works best for you. Here are 5 tried-and-true staff favourites to help get you on your way to better hair days!

I have naturally curly hair and my curls tend to get unruly and dry (especially at the ends), so I absolutely love the Giovanni Leave-In Conditioner! I find it keeps my curls hydrated and less frizzy for days. I’ve tried numerous leave-ins and this one is in my top 3, and I especially love that it’s certified organic! I also find that it’s great to use on the second or third day after washing if you need to re-tame your curls. Plus, it will leave your curls soft (not hardened with product) which is why it’s a favourite!

I have fine hair that gets easily tangled, and this Kristin Ess Hair Leave-In Conditioner is my new go-to, especially during the long, winter months! It smells amazing and it leaves my hair with a nice, subtle shine. I like to spray it on right after I step out of the shower for best results!

ANDALOU naturals’ silky smooth spray is the first step in my curly hair routine. Why? Because it does exactly what it says—lightweight conditioning and detangling! The ingredients are clean and include what my curls crave like aloe, coconut milk, shea and cocoa butters, and white tea extracts. But my favourite ingredient is the peppermint leaf oil, which gives a fresh feel and awakening scent first thing every morning. The cherry on top is the affordable price point!
Loved by Erin, CMO (for her daughter!)
I use this all-natural detangler from The Honest Company on my daughter’s crazy curls every day! One or two sprays and a couple of brushes and the crazy knots are gone. It also smells incredible! It’s orange and vanilla scented, so it smells like a creamsicle. And I love that it doesn’t weigh her hair down.
Loved by Nicole, Content Specialist
I have long, thick hair and often struggle with buildup—so normally, I’m very skeptical about adding more conditioner to my hair. But I love this EVOLVh SmartStart Leave-In Conditioner! It’s super lightweight, and it doesn’t make my hair feel (or look!) greasy. It’s a go-to on humid days to help keep my frizz down—just a few sprays on wet or dry hair and I’m good to go!
