We all condition our hair on a daily basis, but using a leave-in conditioner can make a massive difference to tresses if they're dry or damaged. We spoke to some of the U.K.'s top hair experts about the benefits of leave-in conditioners and gathered a list of some of the best on the market today.

"Leave-in conditioners are great for giving your hair some extra conditioning and providing it with moisture and softness," Michelle Paterson, Hair Manager at Pouts & Pinups, told us. "Leave-in conditioners come in many different forms, from liquids to creams and sprays and can be left on the hair until its next wash." But did you know these products are also great to use on dry hair in between washes too? "Doing this will restore lost moisture, give your hair nourishment and shine and combat frizz," Michelle smiled.
