I don't want to have to make my own. Are there any good spray leave-in conditioners?
that depends on if you're CG or not. Most contain a 'cone in them
it's very easy to make your own -- water and your favorite conditioner. the only thing is you can only make enough for a few days, after that, without preservatives, you need to toss it.
you can add as much or as little water as you want.

Why not make it? So easy. Small spritz bottle. Water (if you can, use purified water, cheap to buy by the gallon, don't know if deionized might be better). You fave conditioner. Shake. Spritz.

Keep in fridge. Make new weekly.

no biggie.

I've tried about a half dozen spray leave ins, pricey and cheap. I've not really liked any of them. Either too greasy or too tacky or too smelly or build up.

Easier and cheaper and more self-pleasing to just make some.

I was just about to recommend the Shescentit one but instead, I'll add a thumbs up to that recommendation from Kathy!

I've been playing with Stop Break leave-in... has protein if you are protein-sensitive. I'm liking it. Nutress - Nutress Hair Stop Break Healthy Hair Enhancer Spray

The Biotera Leave-In is thin enough that you could probably put it in a spray bottle too, but it isn't sold that way.

Both of these are CG, if that is important to you.

It's the Moisture Mist. Haven't ordered in a while, the Green Grape might be new. It has Dimethicone copolyol.

I just sprayed some on my dry hair. I don't do second day hair and have yet to find a spray product to work for me on dry hair. It didn't make my hair worse. One side looks a little better. I'll try to remember to comment later to see what happens when it really soaks in.

I just remembered Jane Carter Solution spray leave in that I used to use:
Revitalizing Conditioner For Color Treated Hair: Buy Natural Hair Conditioner, Nutrient Replenishing conditioner From Jane Carter Solution I think one of the 4 Targets near me carries it.

I put Biotera Leave-In Conditioner in a spray bottle, and it works really well. I had been using Curly Sexy Hair, but it was full of bad stuff, including cones! Co-washing was not good enough to get it out. Biotera is just as good (my hair seems to like spray leave-ins better) or better than the curly sexy hair product I was using. Also, my head is not itching very much. Biotera is inexpensive and very high quality. I recommend it.
-3a/3b, fine, very thick, normal por., normal elast., long, dye- free (CG since Nov. '11)
-CO: every other night (air dry) VO5 (various scents)
-Low poo (As needed): ION Color Defense Clarifying, Yes To line, Giovanni TTTT
-RO: GVP CB
-LI: Giovanni DLI or a tiny bit of my co-wash or RO (sometimes none)
-Styling: BYZ Noodle Head Tame your Curls Mousse
-PT: ION Effective Care



Shescentit also has a new Tahitian Vanilla conditioner that's glycerin free. It's fairly close to the Moisture Mist, no silicones, but does have coconut oil and coconut milk in it.
it's very easy to make your own -- water and your favorite conditioner. the only thing is you can only make enough for a few days, after that, without preservatives, you need to toss it.
