I noticed most of us confuse conditioners and don’t know which is used when, where and why. So, today we dive into rinse off conditioners.
What are rinse off conditioner
Rinse off conditioners are surface conditioners formulated to restore & retain moisture after cleansing, give good slip to detangle & some as co-washes.
Rinse off conditioners are meant to be rinsed off after some minutes unlike leave- in conditioners.
How I use Rinse off conditioner.
- As a detangler; some conditioners have a good slip that melts away the tangles. My personal favorite is Mikalla honey and butter, the scent is heavenly delicious and melts my tangles.

- As a pre-poo product, I have used a detangler as a pre-poo a couple of times. Forgrac conditioner is my favorite conditioner because it restores moisture & leaves my hair feeling so soft and manageable. Ain’t a fan of using conditioners as pre-poo products.

- As a co-wash; I’ve co-washed a couple of times too, ain’t much into co-washing cos the products don’t cleanse or get rid of the build up. Yeah I know conditioners are not for cleansing but sometimes life gets busy and a co-wash will keep you going for a couple of days to a week.

Are Rinse off conditioner important?
Personally, I rarely purchase rinse off conditioners because I don’t find them really essential but lately I’m loving mikalla honey and butter conditioner because of the good slip it gives.
Just because I don’t find them essential it doesn’t mean you wouldn’t. We all have different regimen, lifestyle and hair needs for instance, if your hair needs midweek co-washing, well you will find a co-wash or a cleansing conditioner useful. Know your hair needs and purchase the products it needs.
