I liked the product as well, but I must say that one CAN use it as a leave in. I followed her instructions and rinsed it out the first day, but on day 2 when my hair was starting to feel dry (I didn't use anything else on my hair so that I could evaluate it better) I just re-wet my hair and added a SMALL amount of the YAM Nectar as a leave in. Went on to day 3 with no additional products needed.
This product is very similar to Qhemet's OHHB, and that is a leave in. However, my hair felt softer w/ the YAM Nectar so it might replace it in my arsenal. I think whether or not one leaves in honey/glycerin depends on their hair and the climate they live in. I've made honey sprays (honey + water) and sprayed it in my hair for moisture ::shrugs::
