Default sheamoisture/janecarter

how do you use your leave-in's? how do you incorporate them into your routine? On wet hair, dry hair, once a day, with other products?

I use a leave-in once daily - sometimes twice since my hair is very porous. I usually use leave ins before sealing with an oil. I don't use Jane Carter, but I do use Shea Moisture leave ins.

Ditto, unless my hair is in twists. I tend to just leave my hair alone in twists, even if I leave them in for 4-5 days. Other than that I moisturize my hair 1-2 times daily too, as my hair is porous as well. I've never used Jane Carter, but I love SheaMoisture, especially the curl and hold style milk.

I love the Jane Carter leave-in. I typically use it when I'm doing twists on dry hair.

I use and like both. I will use Shea Moisture after cowashing and under gel before making my twists. I use the Jane Carter Leave-In spray as my refresher in the morning and before bed.
FYI _ I did have a problem recently with SM and buildup so you might need to clarify now and then.

I often wonder about the order in which to put the product on. I feel like the oil should go on first because it (coconut oil) penetrates the hair shaft. How do you layer your products? What has been your trial and error?

oils and butters seal in moisture so you need your moisturizer underneath. I have low porosity so layering is tricky for me.

ok, I never thought of it that way, water is the moisturizer. but I am going to try it. My hair is very porous.

I use Shea Moisture DTM as a leave-in about once or twice a week. I apply it on damp hair. I do not mix it with anything else nor do I seal after using it.
