These are usually applied to the hair for a longertime. The surfactants are based on long, straight aliphatic fatty acid chainssimilar to saturated fatty acids. Their molecules have a tendency tocrystallize easily, giving the conditioner higher viscosity, and they tend toform thicker layers on the hair surface.Leave-in conditioners are thinner and have different surfactants, whichadd only a little material to the hair. They are based on unsaturated fattyacid chains, which are bent, not straight.
This shape makes them less prone tocrystallizing, making a lighter, less viscous mixture and providing asignificantly thinner layer on the hair. The difference between pack andleave-in conditioners is similar to the difference between fats and oils, thelatter being less viscous. Leave-in conditioner is designedto be used in a similar way to hair oil, preventing the tangling of hairand keeping it smooth. Its use is particularly prevalent by those withnaturally curly or kinky hair.Ordinary conditioners combine some aspects of pack and leave-inconditioners.
Ordinary conditioners are generally applied directly after usingshampoo, and manufacturers usually produce a conditioner counterpart fordifferent types of shampoo for this purpose.Hold conditioners, based on cationic polyelectrolyte polymers, hold thehair in a desired shape. These have a function and composition similar todiluted hair gels.
