Normal conditions aren't made for leave in purposes. They will just weigh your hair down and leave your greasy. What I recommend to my clients is you can put this on in the shower, put a shower cap on and leave it sit for an hour on your hair as you go about your day, then rinse. It's just like using a deep conditioner and the shower cap holds heat in for deeper penetration. If you are looking for a leave in suave does make a few that work very well.
