Default desperately in need of an inexpensive leave-in

I've never known much of anything about leave-ins. I've tried using actual condishes as leave-ins but I guess I'm too heavy-handed. Maybe I'm more suited for one that is specifically a leave-in. Maybe even a spray-on. Recommendations? I'm a college student, so funds are very very limited
Please please help! I'm soon going to splurge on a jar of KCCC (another reason that funds are limited) so if you have any suggestions of products that work well with it, that would only be a plus

A million thanks in advance! I need you ladies and your advice so that I can stay cute

I like second day hair better than first
Usual routine is Elucence, Giovanni Direct, Fantasia IC.

I like Paul Mitchell's leave in The Conditioner. I get the Sally's knock-off for about $5.

Default Garnier Fructis Leave-In

I love the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine or Curl & Shine leave-in conditioning cream. It works great for me. However it does have amethicone in it so you might need to use a gentle shampoo like Activate. It is in most drugstores and is about $4.

Default Thanks

Awwwwwwwww thanks GeminiLeslie. You are too sweet I actually use Paul Mitchel the Conditioner sometimes when I want my hair to be fluffy. It works well with FOTE Aloe vera gel. When I use FOTE with the Garnier Leave ins I get the little white specks.

I use the FOTE Aloe Vera Gel. I just started using it about 2 weeks ago, and my hair is liking it. Since the weather got warmer (but now it's cold again), I had to stop using the PM because my hair wasn't curling very well, so far now I'm not using a leave in. I wish I could use Gariner, but every product I've used from that line I had some sort of allergic reaction to, but I could never figure out what caused it.
