question about leave in conditioner

I have 50:50 Balanced Shampoo (Giovanni) and Giovanni TTTT (Tea Tree Triple Treat). I'm using those two when I get in the shower; is the TTTT conditioner okay to use as a leave in conditioner also?

I also have Garnier Fructis Fortifying Cream Conditioner, and Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner. Which of the three conditioners I listed above (TTTT, Garnier Fruticis Frotifying Cream, and Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut) would you use as a leave in conditioner? I'm already using the TTTT one as the rinse out conditioner, so I just need opinions on the one to leave in. Thanks!
I don't use any of those, but why not try all three as a leave-in and see which works best for you. The less watery, probably the better. Whichever one gives you the nicest feel left in (that coveted seaweedy feel when hair is quite wet with the leave-in) might be the best choice. Work them in your fingers and see which one has a better texture for leave-in.

Did you do a forum search on each of those to see how others are using them? Could be someone is already using them that way.

I've used (I think) all of those as leave-ins at one time or another. It really does take experimentation. None of them was bad for me, but I tend to like a small amount of a heavier leave-in, so I liked the GF one the best.

Happy experimenting!

I agree it's experimentation. Your hair will tell you what it likes and doesn't. My hair doesn't do the suave or vo5 as a leave in. However my hair does like Gionvani as a leave in. Typically if I do a Low-poo/rinse out it's the TTT and I just use the condish as a leave in. My the clumping of my hair different too which is cool. Depends on what style of curl I want for the day lol

I use suave (anyone except the coconut one) and they work very well. I have tried tresemme and Nature's gate as leave ins and didn't like them so I decided to stick with suave and haven't tried anything else since.
