Default Recommendation: Giovanni Direct Leave-In

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.

Cheers,

P.

I was thinking about getting some of this after this poster's review. Any one else tried it and what did you think about it? TIA!

This is a lovely leave in. It's light enough for my hair, I get spirals and my hair is crazy shiny when I use this

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
