No. 1: Leave-in conditioner While this may seem like an unnecessary extra step (you are conditioning in the shower after all), our experts say it's crucial. Pelusi points out that leave-in conditioner helps you detangle and comb your hair more easily, which saves time. And Jones says using a leave-in daily helps "keep hair hydrated and acts like a 'primer' before applying styling products."
If you have fine hair or are worried about volume, Potempa recommends Aussie Mousse + Leave-In Conditioner, $4.99. "The combination of root-lifting volumizer and a soft, leave-in conditioner makes it really easy to style your hair. I always apply it before I blow dry," she says.
