does anyone else leave rise out conditioner in their hair?

ive only just started doing this for the past several weeks. I still have leave in conditioner, but i find that when i use the Desert Essence Shea Butter conditioner in my hair as a leave in, instead of rinsing it out, as intended, i get very very good results. i prefer it to my giovanni direct leave in, actually.

And is it okay to leave these conditioners in your hair? I am trying to wash every 1-2 weeks with shampoo these days anyway.

I'm using Garnier triple nutrition as a leave in! I do shampoo once a week with VO5 so I don't know if I'm much help lol

I've been doing it with Tresemme Naturals. My hair looked and felt awesome. I got many compliments too. Then I did it again and put Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme on top and my hair is even softer and even shinier. I'm surprised my hair isn't weighed down. It shrunk right up to my neck still and I love it.
I actually use to do this to my hair when it was relaxed to make it curl/wavy. I haven't tried it since Iv been natural but I think I will because it use to work well.

I do it regularly. I even use it on my hair as a daily moisturizer.

I think as long as you have a healthy scalp, it should be perfectly fine

I use to do this until I notice that I get terrible buildup on my scalp, so now I have to make sure I completely rinse out all my conditioner. If you don't notice something like that then go a head with whatever makes your hair happy.

I would just make sure your conditioner does NOT contain sodium hydroxide (a.k.a lye). Some brands use it as a preserve. I've heard if it is left on the hair for too long, it can cause some serious damage to the hair after long term use.

I do sometimes, but I am careful with the ingredients with certain rinse out conditioners. Tresemme Naturals has isopropyl alcohol in it, which I don't want in my hair. Others have 'cones that's high up on the ingredient list. Some has glycerin that's higher on the list of ingredients than I would want to use as a leave in - but it really depends on the time of year. Some makes my hair matte and dull looking.

I guess I'm not a huge fan of rinse outs as leave ins though I do use them that way sometimes. .

If the conditioners dont have the properties listed above and are the consistencies my hair likes yup I sure do. Ive found alot have left that dull matte sticky feeling on my hair but not so much with more natural products, as they contain more ingredients that penetrate.

Actually, all of my favorite & staple "leave ins" im using right now are rinse outs (CJ Argan Oil Beauticurls, Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner, Darcys Pumpkin Seed, Deva One Condish, Yes to Cucumbers, Desert Essence Coconut,Apple &Grape as well) & they work wonderfully.

I leave it in. Giovanni 50/50 moisture or Smooth As Silk. Does amazing things for my hair. I also use it to wet-and-set when I wake up or am going out.
I leave in my rinse outs out almost everytime I do my hair, except when Im using things with high protein or with silicones, which is very rare. It leaves my hair much more moisturized than rinsing and going back to apply a leave in. I did it all the time the first time I was natural for 4 years with no ill effects and ive been doing it for the year ive been transitionig with great results too. I agree that I get the best results leaving in the more natural conditoners.
Super Thick corkscrews and waves. LOVE Elucence MBC, Giovanni 50/50 condish, Qhemet Products, V05 Calming Chamomile Tea Therapy condish, Jessicurl WDT. These are my official HG's that I love oh so much

I do it a lot. Sometimes I find certain rinse-out conditioners do not "play well" with other products when used as a leave-in. From my experience, Tresemme Naturals condish doesn't work well with KMF Upper Management gel (holy grail product for me).
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

i do, but i also recommend not using garnier fructis pure clean conditioner and suave almond and shea. WAY to coating and they leave hair heavy and dull, but great detanglers!
as u can see, im still learning!
[Raises hand]. I don't really make a distinction any more between leave-in and rinse out other than rinsing out some of the rinseout. If it contains volatile oils or extracts like peppermint, all of it is rinsed out.

I agree with everyone else, the more natural the conditioner the better it is as a leave in. Some of these ingredients were just never meant to be left on the hair, so we should just be careful that's all
