Default Need Heavy Products

Hello all,

I am having an issue with my hair 'laying down' in that, well, it won't. I mean, of course it shrinks up and all that jazz, but it doesn't really hang like I want it to.

I think the reason for this is that my strands are really fine. This is super frustrating because when I am detangling (and have a ton of conditioner in it) it looks awesome because the conditioner weighs it down a lot. But, once I rinse it out, it's over =(. And I can't leave the conditioner in because there's sooo much of it and, of course, it's white.

Do you guys know of any products that are heavy enough to leave in my hair so that it hangs and isn't white? I was looking at Design Essentials Daily Moisturizing Lotion (Design Essentials Natural Daily Moisturizing Lotion - NaturallyCurly.com) bc someone reviewed on YT and said it was heavy; but one of the reviewers from the link abover said it was light, so idk what to do =/.

Kinky curly weighs my hair down a lot. It isn't good for me because I like BIG hair, but maybe give it a try if you want it to hang more.

You can leave Curl Junkie conditioners in and they don't leave my hair white. I especially love the Smoothing Lotion and Rehab.

If I leave enough Tresemme Naturals in my hair I can get my hair to hang a bit more than it usually does if I rinse the conditioner all the way out. I leave more of it in, it's cheap and it works.

Yes, this is my hair's favorite leave-in. It's white, but it doesn't leave your hair white. (I use a LOT of it, so I'll usually buy two bottles when it's on sale.) An Asian friend of mine (a wavy herself) told me one day how beautiful my hair was, and how nicely it "falls", so I guess it works!
