I'm officially ready to emerge from my winter haze and re-acclimate to warmer temps and being outside! First things first though, my hair has been pretty neglected over these dry and dehydrating winter months. In order to get my hair back to it's glossy and healthy normal for summer, I've been using leave-in conditioners to help re-store its shine.

Leave-in conditioners help so much to revitalize your hair and bring back some gloss to it, as well as helping get rid of its dried out state that can occur in winter. I asked some of my favorite hair experts what they think about leave ins: Are they a myth? Or do they really help? So keep reading to see what they say!

What are the benefits of leave-in conditioner?

One of the best things leave-in conditioner does for you is moisturize dry or damaged hair. It helps to really lock in the moisture so that it can look healthier as well as preventing your hair from any future damage that it may be exposed to. Hair stylist and expert Marwa Bashir says this about leave-ins, "A leave-in conditioner is one of the most beneficial products for your hair. A leave-in conditioner will protect , moisturize and nourish all hair types. In my arsenal of products the first step for my wavy hair is always a leave-in conditioner, my favorite is SUNCATCHER from R+Co. This product is great to use on damp hair, as well as dry when the hair may feel a bit dehydrated."

Is leave-in conditioner good for your hair?

Leave-in conditioner is great for your hair because it has time to really soak into the hair and soothe any dry or brittle ends you may have. It also strengthens any dry ends to allow them to get stronger and prevent them from breaking as easily in the future. It can also prevent your hair from damage via sun, rough sleeping, or heat. Our resident hair expert, Marwa Bashir says, "A leave-in conditioner layered over dry waves or curls can also help revive the shape of the coils or ropey waves." We love to hear that!

Briogeo Don't Despair Hair Treatment

I've been using this hair treatment for about two years now and it has to be one of the BEST things I've done with my hair care routine in a long time. I use a lot of heat from curling irons and blow dryers so my hair has a lot of dryness. I was looking for something that would help with my breakage and dead ends so I could grow out my hair more and this seriously worked like magic. It made my hair feel so hydrated just after two uses and now that I've been using it for so long, I don't think I can go back; it's just that good! Could not recommend this one more! Definitely add to cart.

Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream

With over 800 reviews at Nordstrom, most of which are 4 stars and above, this is one of the most highly-rated leave-in conditioners I've seen. It is certainly well loved with reviews saying things like, "Do yourself a favor and go ahead and order! This stuff is amazing! It adds tons of shine and closure to ends. Cuts out all frizz nicely. My hair feels great...not to mention, the smell is AMAZING! I have extremely thick hair and I literally use a dime size amount. I know it seems expensive up front, but it will last a long time. I’m hooked!!!" Wow that sounds like a stellar product to me!

Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector

This is one of those products I hate because it's so good!!! I used this once and genuinely noticed a big difference in my hair and hated that because of its more expensive price point. But I promise you, it actually does work and IS worth the hype unfortunately. Try it once and you'll see! The difference in your hair is immediate and game-changing. Another product that lives up to the hype!

Oribe Leave-In Detangler

Another amazing Oribe product that I love. This one can be used to help detangle your hair and smoothen it from any clumps to prevent further breakage. It just helps loosens up the hair and moisturizes it leaving it with a silky, smooth finish. This is a great one to use after the shower to give it an extra shine.

Moroccan Oil All-In-One Leave-In

This is a budget friendly option listed at only $14! It also has amazing reviews and is the complete package as an all-in-one item! It helps to detangle your hair, soften any breakage or split ends, and prevent damage from heat. It's also perfect for any and all hair types!

Aveda Nutriplenish Leave-In

Over 2300 stunning reviews?! Sign us up! This product is well-loved for a reason! Another hair product for all hair types but this one helps to protect from heat of up to 450 degrees! That sounds so ideal for me, as someone who frequently uses heat on her hair! I would say this one is perfect for you if you heat-style your hair often.

Curlsmith Weightless Air Dry Cream

Where are my beautiful curly-haired girlies at?! I have the most amazing leave-in conditioner for you that is only $12 and has incredible reviews. This mask is so helpful because it moisturizes your hair while improving your curl texture. We love a dual purpose! This mask is definitely a must for anyone with curly hair!

Since our hair expert Marwa Bashir said that leave-ins even work well on dry hair, we definitely recommend trying it that way to revitalize some of your curls for some extra bounce!

Aveda Botanical Intensive Strengthening Mask

If you have intense breakage or pretty frail hair like me then look no further! This mask does an amazing job of strengthening those frail, broken ends on your hair and preventing any further damage from occurring. I love it because I notice my hair get stronger and not have as many broken ends. It's also paraben-free which I love. You just leave it in for a few minutes and voila! Your hair is shiny and luxurious!

Now that your hair is on its way to looking luxurious, try out one of our Easy Hairstyles For Work!

Sarah Jessica Parker captured our hearts as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, but she captured Matthew Broderick's heart much before that. What sets SJP apart from her character on Sex and the City is that while Carrie is indecisive, frantic, lost, and even problematic in her relationships over the years, Sarah is the exact opposite. She's remained steady in her relationship over the course of many years and is still as in love with Matthew as ever.

Their secret to staying in love? SJP told the Hollywood Reporter, "I’ve always said one of the reasons we’ve had success is because we don’t talk about our marriage. I’m not flattering myself that anyone’s discussing my marriage, but we’re certainly not going to add to it by saying, 'Well, this is why it works.' Next thing you know, there’ll be a very public divorce. So we just try to respect each other." Sounds like respect and privacy have gone a long way to nurture their personal love story despite being in the public eye!

We just adore this duo and how dedicated and supportive they've been to each other so we just had to give you the scoop on how the love birds met along with a deep dive into their whole relationship history!

She later told Marie Claire in an interview, "I wore black on my wedding day, and I really regret that," Sarah Jessica Parker says. "I was too embarrassed to get married in white, and both Matthew and I were reluctant to have people pay so much attention to us. Which is ridiculous, because that's when you can relish the attention, when it's natural. We treated it like it was a big party on a Monday night, and I regret it."

Mandy Moore's standout performance as matriarch Rebecca in popular TV show This Is Us is truly notable, but she was a massive part of a lot of maaaaany millennial's preteen days past. Her blonde era á la the Princess Diaries years alone is unforgettable enough, and yet she gave us hit after hit. I mean, who else could give us hits like "I Wanna Be With You" and "Candy"?

Well, the former teen queen recently opened up about what happened during one of her most iconic pop culture moments ever — she totally spilled on Vanity Fair's 2003 "It's Totally Raining Teens" cover shoot. You know the one! Keep reading if you're curious to know what went down on set!

Who was on the cover of "It's Totally Raining Teens?"

Image via Vanity Fair

Mandy Moore, Amanda Bynes, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, Raven-Symoné, Evan Rachel Woods, and Alexis Bledel (she'll always be Rory from Gilmore Girls to us) graced the Vanity Fair cover. It's like Vanity Fair took all of our favorite teen pop stars, threw them in a room together, and gave us one of the greatest pop culture media moments of all time. And while that was great for us, we never considered if everyone actually got along or not...

What does Mandy Moore remember from set?

Image via Evan Agostini/Getty Images

She recently appeared on Valeria Lipovetsky’s podcast Not Alone to talk about everything from being a celebrity to relationships. Although she thinks it's funny now, she recalled that there was BTS drama between some of the teens on the cover shoot of "It's Totally Raining Teens."

"There was a fight over a boy I wanna say between two people, I don't even remember who. I remember feeling like a real outlier and outlier like, 'I am not a part of the cool kids club," she said.

Now, if I remember correctly...there may have been a bit of a back-and-forth with Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan about a certain special boy named Aaron Carter. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall for the teen drama queen antics that surely unfolded...

Is Mandy Moore friends with anyone from the "It's Totally Raining Teens" cover?

Photo by Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images

Yes! Mandy and Hilary Duff have been friends for over two decades now. She also said they get a kick out of reminiscing about those days. She told Lipovetsky, "We were such babies then and to think fast-forward 20 years from now… our husbands are best friends. She’s a very, very dear friend to me.”

Her hope is that her and Hilary Duff will be able to share how long they've known each other with their kids. "One day we’ll be able to show our kids like, ‘Isn’t this so funny, we knew each other back then and now look at us,'" she fondly said.

Mandy Moore just confirmed what we've all been thinking: pop stars really are just like us...just with more fame and fortune under their belts!
