What are some sticky, "grabby" leave-ins?
 
I've decided my hair likes sticky, grabby leave-ins. What are some NC favorites? THANK YOU!

I'm interested in this, too -- especially in any conditioners/leave-ins that are available on ground. Any suggestions out there? (If it helps, my hair is fine and wavy, with normal porosity and elasticity. It hates glycerin, aloe, and propylene glycol -- likes protein.) Thanks!

(Edited to mention this: Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner works well for me as a "grabby" product, but I'm always interested in others!)

There is a post on Alex's blog, The Wavy Tales, that breaks conditioners down into slip and grab.

Thank you! I'll take a look.

Any other suggestions out there for items that aren't on that list?

Here is the big thread on grabby vs slip. It mentions lots of products along the way. Post #2 mentions a few grabby leave ins.

Not a grabby leave in, but Ecostyler Krystal is a grabby gel that magically makes my hair clump. I also like BRHG.

This isn't technically a leave-in, but KMFUM is (for me) kinda sticky and grabby and leaves my hair in good condition (it's moisturizing). When I mix it with FSG it is absolutely the best. Sometimes I add a teeny dab of conditioner.

I get great curl enhancement and clumps from this mix, although my hair is very different from yours, it's not expensive so good for a trial.

What is KMFUM? I couldn't find it in the acronyms, abbreviation list.

Thanks!

I can't think of any grabby leave-ins. The only grabby products I know of are Ecostyler, CJ Aloe Fix (and the lite version as well), Mop C defining cream and HESMU.
