I don't know if your hair is porous or not, but I know for my porous strands, condish and oil is the best method and I've been doing that since the 90s. But that's just me.. I think low-porosity folks don't have a lot of luck with creamy condish as a leave in.
I'm a low porous chick

I have no idea.. I have never used the Triple Nutrition version. Maybe someone else has and can fill in the blanks.

Okay so maybe that's the problem.. My hair drinks up conditioner, water, and oil. I can't use stuff like Qhemets Burdock Root cream because it's too sticky or something, but it seems to work a lot better for low-porosity folks. Of course that stuff isn't cheap, but it does last a long time.

The sleek & shine rinse out conditioner doesn't have 'cones.

I was just about to write a post about the BRBC! I used it for the first time and love it!
