I always use a leave-in, it is never very crunchy & if it is easily srunched out. I use Elucence MBC
as a leave-in. Many different types of curlies have been using this co with great success.
Also, I think that mayim is having good luck with the Giovanni Vitapro Fusion as a leave-in. It is a nice light leave-in, does not weigh down the hair.
