Default Leave-In?

What does everyone use as a leave in? I'm using the A'lchemy lavender one at the moment but its not really working that well with my hair.

Personally atm, I use Kinky Curly Knot today - I did order it off the net a yr and a bit ago. I love it.

However perhaps try using your regular rinse out as a leave in.

btw are you cg or do you use cones?

Atm I'm using Alba's leave-in and the Curl Junkie one, both of which I got online from the US. I like the Alba, CJ not so much. I used to use MOP many moons ago which I really liked and am going to try it again when these run out.
That Alchemy one was disgusting in my hair, I threw it out.

I've been cg for about 2 months, though i'm still having problems with frizz. this is going to sound really strange, but after it dries, my hair feels quite producty and weighed down - even though theres still lots of surface frizz! i use quite a moisturising rinse out and only low-poo every couple of washes, so i think it must be the gel/leave in?

yeah i'm not wrapped with the alchemy one and it's quite expensive too. just not sure where to start with buying overseas products online?

I usually don't use a leave-in, but in the past I've used Vita5 (not Vo5), the purple bottle, with mixed results. Don't let attendants talk you into the green leave-in from that line for curly hair, as it's loaded with cones.
At the moment I'm using AVG because it's moisturising and also has light hold. HTH
