Glycerin Free Leave-in Conditioners

Do you know of any?
I live in a super dry area and anything with glycerin in it that I'm not supposed to rinse out just makes my hair super frizzy and dry.

I'm currently using shea butter, but I'm almost done with it and I'd like to try something new.

Thanks for the help!

This is the one I have (and just recently started using). It has a pretty good score in terms of the safety of their ingredients, and it's not very expensive at the same time, which is good. I am not sure though if propylene glycol is the same as glycerine.

I applied some of this to my soaking wet hair Monday night and I've had good definition in my hair since then (today's Thursday). I also used conditioner and sealed my ends with oil. I never get multi-day hair, so this has been a big surprise to me.

My staples: Mane n Tail (cowash), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine (leave in condish), Grapeseed oil or shea butter (sealing), Organic Root Stimulator Elasticitea (leave-in condish & light hold)

It's used as a humectant, like glycerine, but it's not the same thing.

For my hair, stuff with a heavy amount of an other humectant (honey/butylene glycol/propylene glycol) tend to have the same effect as glycerin in dry weather.

Is that normal? And if so, why not call the leave-in "setting lotion" and not "conditioner"? I thought the purpose of conditioner is to soften or help detangle hair.

For the leave in to have any kind of soft feel to it, I have to scrunch out it's crunchiness with conditioner or oil..

From your description of what happens to your hair, it sounds like your leave-in is too heavy and you need something lighter.

I just picked up Elucense Moisture Balancing conditioner from a salon where I live.

It does not have glycerin, only triglycerides (aka "coconut fatty acids").

Do you know of any?
