Default Need a spray leave-in that does actually spray!


I have been looking for a spray leave-in but all the ones I have tried basically come out in a stream not a mist.
I need a mist as my hair does not take kindly to being scrunched and is much happier if I let it fall into place then mist it with a leave-in.
I have recently cut all my damage off and am now embracing my baby fine curls, I want to quit using ANY heat on it as it really does not like it.
Can anybody suggest anything? Preferably something that is available in Australia or online without crazy shipping fees!

The problem you will have is that any product thin enough to mist cannot be a true leave in conditioner, it would be at best a detangler or treatment. Even oil free conditioners contain fatty alcohols and cationic surfactants, these are 'creamy' not watery ingredients.

I am using the Komaza Care Matani repair treatment spray at present (ceramides, panthenol, hydrolysed protein so good for fine or damaged hair), it's a fine mist but not a conditioner. Not sure how easily you can get that in Australia tho.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut
Treatments: Komaza Matani, coconut oil, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss ultimate volume, Inecto argan
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Boots Essentials gel
Experimenting with: going back to basics
