I know I'm not going to get a lot of responses. lol

If you are one of those please cosign. lol

And if so what liquid leave in do you like and why? Also, do you use it alone or do you use it first and then lightly apply a butter or lotion on top?

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." --- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Liquid as in a spray? The only spray leave ins I use is when I'm protective styling for over 4 days (I'm really bad at keeping them in longer). I'm a huge fan of the one by Jane Carter (I can't remember the name of it right now)

I tend to prefer thicker leave-ins like Knot Today, CJ Assurance Smoothing Lotion, or KBN Shealoe Leave-in. The only liquid (spray) leave-ins I've tried are the Talijah Wajiid Protective Body Mist (still kind of thick) and the Curls Quenched Moisturizer. Of the two spray-ins, I like the Protective Body Mist to detangle and moisturize before twisting my hair for the week. I seal my ends with a butter after this.The Curls leave in is way to thin for me to use alone...I usually use it as a second or third day twist out refresher. Hope this answers your question.

I prefer a leave in that is loose like Darcy's Daily Leave In but I also love KBN's leave in. Both smell wonderful and have good slip too. I like Greg Juice by Oyin's but I prefer something that can easily get thru my thick koils!
My leave-in is not "liquid" like water, but it is light. I use Elucence MBC and I love it. I have no problems using it to detangle. I like using it underneath my moisturizer and/or gel.

I'm almost positive my hair will prefer cream leave-ins once I BC.
