Leave-in Recs from med to coarse curlies...

Ok, so I'm almost 2 years into being natural, and I'm learning something new everyday it seems. Lately I've been using GDLI as my leave in conditioner and recently noticed that my hair feels harder than it did previously. My canopy feels a lot drier also. I have a few fine strands, but given my need for a protein treatment every now and then, I've now realized that my hair is sorta in the middle.

I was wondering if you had some recommendations for a leave-in. I'd prefer something I can get on the ground but I'm no stranger to internet vendors!

I've had great success with a product from Lush called R&B Hair Moisterizer. It was made with coarse hair in mind and softens my hair very nicely. The ingredients are all fairly natural---Oat Milk, Glycerine, Organic Avocado Butter, Fair Trade Olive Oil, Coconut and Jojoba oils, Bay Oil, Orange flower absolute, Jasmine absolute, capuacu Butter. My hair is often quite hard and it is great right after co washing and a regular wash.

For braidouts right now I use Qhemet's Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee under my styler. It works fine but I feel like I can use something more moisturizing. I just ran out of BRBC but as soon as I get more I'm going to try that.

For wash n go's KCKT and BWC works best for me. I had some samples of CURLS Milkshake, I like it but I don't wear wash n go's enough to buy a full bottle. Target sells Kinky Curly now and if you check curls.biz there may be a place you can get their stuff on ground.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.

I wanted to try the Lush R&B a while back when someone mentioned it, but it's $18.95 for 3.5oz!?!?

Thanks for letting me know the price on the Lush Moisturizer. Right now, that's a definite no, but maybe one day.

You may also want to look into Mozeke Whipped Avocado cream as a leave-in. It's thick, moisturizing and really melts into my hair. A little goes a long way.

I mix castor oil with any conditioner I'm using as a leave-in. Helps hair retain moisture and stay soft.

I use Giovanni Direct layered with Qhemet A&O heavy cream then top it off with Aloe Vera gel and this results in soft and moisturized locks! Sorry the DL didn't work for you :/ It may be the Qhemet that really moisturizes my hair when coupled with the DL...

I can still smell it in my hair from this morning....mmmm.

I can't believe this store was at the mall I frequent for about a year and just today I actually looked at the sign (it's a small small sign, not good advertisment) and realized it was Lush. They have some cool products but their prices are a little out there. It's neat how they put a sticker on everything with a pic of the person that handmade it and on what day.

That's all for my rambling!
the best that ive found is yes to cucumbers co great slip and assuie moist conditioner cheap and work great not heavy
My requirements for a leave-in are that it has slip, moisturizes and detangles. So far I have not found one that does that except Botanical spirits soft curls cream. BUT after awhile my hair rejects shea butter and this a heavy shea butter product and it only works on clean wet hair. QB MTCG is good as a hair milk for everyday use. It doesn't detangle but it really softens the hair, wet or dry.
Ah...to be a well pampered pootiecat. I can sleep on my owner's lap. Roll over on my back when I want my stomach rubbed. Purr with delight. Suddenly jump off and walk away for no reason. Not respond when I am called. Throw my leg up and lick with intense abandon. Sleep 85% of the time. Hang my head off the couch and view the world upside down.
