Theoretically, you can replace conditioner with leave-in conditioner, but here’s why you should think twice before doing it.
Rinse-out conditioners provide much needed internal conditioning benefits for your hair. If you skip the rinse-out conditioner and only use a leave-in conditioner, your hair could suffer from inadequate conditioning. Rinse-out conditioners help to give your hair strength, enhanced elasticity, moisture, and more on an internal level.Leave-in conditioners are not designed to condition the hair on the level that a rinse-out conditioner does. So, use a rinse-out conditioner after you shampoo your hair. Use a leave-in conditioner whenever your hair needs an overall boost. It’s totally fine to use both types of conditioners.
