Leave-In Products?

Hello ladies! I am looking for new leave-in products to try on my hair. I used to just leave Pantene in all day, but learned that it was horrible for your hair, so I'm trying to use more natural products. My hair is 3b and has tighter curls naturally, but it can also get pretty frizzy. I'm looking for some kind of cream or leave-in gel that won't weigh my hair down but will still moisturize the ends. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
I am liking shea moisture thickening growth milk, curl and style milk along with their curl enhancing smoothie for definition, clumping and frizz control. The smoothie is a thick cream. I also like kinky curly knot today.You could also try using a conditioner as a leave-in, like tresemme naturals. I heard good things about Curls brand Curls Goddess gel and Alba Botanica Soft Hold Cream -id like to try these when i run out of products i have now. Aww so many products so little time lol
I got 3B Curls
Cleansers: Shea Moisture Thickening Shampoo & African Black Soap Shampoo for scalp, KCCC to clarify
Deep Conditioners: SM Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque & Anti-Breakage Masque
Rinse Outs: Giovanni Direct Leave-In, KCKT
Stylers: Day 1: KCKT then plop. Day 3: H20 and SM Curl Enhancing Smoothie or SM Kids Curling Butter Cream, Aubrey Organics Aloe Vera

I've really been liking Cantu shea butter leavein conditioning balm. Really makes my hair feel like silk. I use it sometimes when I'm just washing and going, but it is a must when I straighten my hair. I flat iron when I straighten and it really helps protect it.

Plus, it smells great and I got a 16oz. container at Walgreens for $5! Can't pass up trying it for only $5!
I am lovin' Kirkland Moisture Conditioner followed by Giovanni Deep Moisture Conditioner.

I've been trying this for a few days and my hair loves it. Kirkland is the brand from costco ($ for a big bottle. I put that in first and really coat my hair. I find it works best on really wet hair. If I use it on damp hair it leaves a white residue. Then I add the Giovanni Deep Conditioner ($13 Tk Maxx) on top of the first conditioner. The Giovanni makes my curls really pop. Then I add a mix of Coconut oil, avocado oil and black caster oil. This step seals everything in and leaves my hair with shinny healthy curls.
3b to 4a?

My Routine
Pre-Poo:Conditioner & Avocado Oil or Jamaican Black Caster Oil or Coconut Oil
Co-wash - One Hair for Dry Hair
Moisturize - Coco curls or beija flore creme brulee
Leave In - Shea Moisture Enhancing Smoothie
Gel - Kinky Curly Custard, Deva Spray Gel
Seal ends - Castor Oil

Weekly Routine:
Deep Conditioner - Moroccan Oil Deep Conditioner or Caster Oil & Coconut Oil

I am in deep love with Kinky Curly Knot Today. This stuff detangles like magic! 2nd place is Giovanni Direct Leave-in. As always I seal with some type of oil. I've had only success with leaving organic conditioners in my hair without scalp issues.

I just started using Shea Moisture styling milk and Hair smoothie because it was on sale at Target. I have pretty much the same issues as you, lots of frizz. and also love Tres Semme naturals,s o much I am getting suspicious about the no cones claim I like the milk better than the smoothie but I would say it feels a little dry/crunchy after use.

Lately I have been going back to my regualr Giovanni leave in conditionner. It is also available at Target and it is quite affordable. The loved this one but I felt I was getting a little bit of built up scalp flakes if I used it too much/too often.
Thanks everyone! I really appreciate the help (even though I'm a little late responding). I'm going to try the Giovanni Leave-In next!

Thanks again!

As I Am leave in is my absolute favorite & Kinky Curly Knot Today is my 2nd favorite. Giovanni leave in didn't work for me...it made my hair look stringy & I had lots of fly aways which was crazy b/c I have never had that.

I keep hearing amazing things about the Kinky Curly Knot Today, but that is also on my list of products to try. I would try to Giovanni but there aren't any stores that sell it around me. I might have to order it online and see if it works. The great thing about this journey is that I can swap products with other curly gals! Thanks again!
