There was a thread awhile back about leave-ins with slip verses those with 'stick'. I've been lurking and reading through lots of back posts for 2 months so I'm not sure when/where it was posted but the gist was that less slip is better for looser/wavy curl patterns. Since KCKT, the new shea moisture leave-in and the 4naturals wavy serum all cause my hair to go limp and straight unless I use minuscule amounts I assumed this was the issue. There were a few 'sticky' leave-ins mentioned so I started using GDLI and like it much better.
I'll try and find the post and edit with a link if I find it again.
Okay, found this post with links to the thread I originally read and a blog too! I'm off to read some more.
What are some sticky, "grabby" leave-ins?
