Default question for 3Bs

Does anyone with long, thick corkscrews leave in a really moisturizing conditioner that defines & holds the curl and NO gel? I would love to do this at least until the humidity hits this summer.

I've done it before, but I don't do it often. I dislike wetting and resetting my hair every day, so I need something with hold to keep my curl pattern for 2nd and 3rd day hair. If I just leave in conditioner, you can bet I'll be wetting and re-applying the next day to battle frizzies.

Geez! I have to wet and reapply GEL the 2nd day! LOL Maybe I shouldn't try it then! Thanks!

Well... I use AHC and don't completely rinse it out... and I don't use any product... so I think I fit that criteria.

I tried this yesterday for the first time. Put lots of Biolage Conditioning Balm in my hair as a leave in, and didn't use a curl creme or gel. Not even close to 2nd day hair, but my hair is extremely unruly and very hard to tame.

I do this semi-regularly, I like the difference in my hair with no gel. It's softer and curlier, though it's generally a little frizzier too. And no second day hair with it, unless I put it up.
