I'm a sometime-poster, essential lurker but I have trying hair and so I thought I'd give a heads up to the product that has helped me for some time.
This has been the only styling product I have used for well over a year.
I have multi-ethnic hair (which I love) cut short. Giovanni's Direct Leave-In
has been my One and Only. It melts into my hair, leaves little to no build-up, and defines my curls. It makes my hair soft, which I am so happy about. In the past, my has felt very coarse.
I like to twist strands of my hair while it is damp; this causes my hair to dry into lovely curls and ringlets that I constantly get compliments on!
Giovanni's Direct Leave-In
is available from Wild Oats or Sprouts and other "alternative" outlets.
I used to think it was pricey ($7), but I strayed recently and tried Aveda's Be Curly. Be Curly is great, but (1) The Build-Up
and (2) The Price
, has further proved to me how great Giovanni's is.
By-the-by, I've tried Giovanni's shampoo and condish, but returned them to Wild Oats -- don't care for them. Just the leave-in for me.
