Whats your best leave in Conditioner?

Like Tree60Likes

Hmmm...I also use butters as leave-in's but I will mention the water based ones here:

Hairveda Acai Berry Phyto Conditioner
QB Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee
Darcy's Botanicals Leave-In
KeraCare Natural Textures Leave-In
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Milk

ETA: They do not need to have slip as much as they need to moisturize for the week. My DC is what I normally use to detangle. However, when I don't have time for a DC or to meticulously detangle, I reach for the QB or Hairveda.

well...right now they are CJ Smoothing Lotion and CJ Hibiscus and Banana Honey Butta
PJ Rehab 9/2011
1. Shea Moisture Shea Butter Leave-in (the original in the white bottle). This is my HG leave-in and has been a staple in my routine for at LEAST the past 5 years or longer. Seriously its simple ingredient-wise, plays well with all stylers, is thick, and leaves my hair moisturized. This is my go to winter leave in or what I reach for when my hair is being funky and is dry or crispy. Cost: $8-10 for 8oz

2. Alba Botanica Leave in Conditioner- I tried this a few years ago on a whim from vitacost because the ingredients looked good and it had rave reviews. I was not disappointed and was pleased to find that this is almost an EXACT dupe of the KBB Hair Milk (sweet ambrosia)...the old formula before she thinned it too much. This plays well with all stylers and leave my hair nice and soft. Where the shea moisture is my go to leave in in the winter or when my hair is feeling extra parched/dry, this is my go to summer/warm weather leave in. Cost: $5 for 7oz

3. CJ Beauticurls Argan oil and Olive Conditioner and CJ Rehab Conditioner: These are a tie for me. I love them both and they both play well with stylers...although not ALL stylers likes these for some reason. I can use about a quarter size amount for my entire head and it just soaks right in. i mostly use these when I using CJ stylers. Cost: Beauticurls A&O $19 for 12oz, Curl Rehab $65 for 32oz (1L) or $20 for 8oz

4. Oyin Hair Dew: This is a really LIGHT leave in/Refresher. I like to use this under creamy stylers that have a lot of moisture in them already but that are not enough alone. Plays well with just about everything I've tried it with smells devine, and a little goes a long way. I also add this to a spray bottel with distilled water, castor oil and grapseed oil and make a refresher spritz. Its a good multipurpose product. Cost: $13 for 8z, $20 for 16oz, or $34 for 32oz (1L)

Those are my top 5 leave-ins. Honorable mention would be Koils by Nature Shea aloe leave in. I really like it, honestly it would be #2 on my list, but it retails for $22 for 12oz and I have to use too much of it so it doesn't last as long as the other items I've listed do.

Since my cut I'm a daily wash and goer that uses a leave in and gel and seal with a castor oil/grapeseed oil mix. As far as texture, I'm middle of the road..not fine but not coarse and I'm medium to low Porisity.

Thank you NCC. Your regimen is pretty much what mine is as far as daily styling. Our hair properties are very similar too now that I cut my hair short.

Anyway..I just asked because the products you listed sounded good and I've been wanting to try out the Hair Dew stuff. The Shea Moisture in the jar didn't work for me in the long run when I was high porosity. And I thought they stop making the one in the bottle. Maybe I can look it up on Amazon or something and even revist the stuff in the jar..I think I can tolerate the smell.

Since I cut my hair short I've been much more open to trying more products so thank you for the info!

Not sure why but I'm just not into hair products like that which is odd especially considering I love hair so much. I'm more of an inexpensive makeup junkie (minus my bareMinerals).
My leave in for a long time was Trader Joes Nourish and Spa but when I couldnt get it I moved to Yes To carrots, and recently to tn moisture reformulated.
I prefer my leave ins to be protein free and I like to add a little aloe vera juice.
Girl, it's the business. End of story. Heck the conditioner is all that too

Marsh is your hair protein sensitive? Because I'm looking for a good conditioner for medium texture, normal porosity and normal elasticity
