Light conditioners with good slip?
 
Does anyone know of any conditioners that are pretty light (not co-wash conditioners) and not super moisturizing, but have good slip and detangle well? My hair gets super tangled so I need a conditioner that has good slip, but most of the conditioners that detangle well are too thick/moisturizing for my hair and weigh down my curls, or over condition my hair.

Have you tried Tresemme Naturals?

+1. The radiant volume formula is light but has excellent slip. Another great option is KCKT. I've used as a co-wash and as a leave it--too light to use as a RO, but has amazing slip.

Curl junkie Argan and olive oil.

Thank you for the suggestions! I'll give Tresemme naturals a try.

Also, how is Garnier fructise sleek and shine? Is it lightweight or more on the heavy side?

Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle has excellent slip. It is also pretty lightweight. I have also just tried Trader Joe's Nourish Spa. It also has pretty good slip and is lightweight. I use them for co-washing, but I would imagine you could use them as regular rinse outs. :)

Yes to Cukes is not super heavy and has excellent slip. I didn't find the Carrots version to be as moisturizing but is lighter than the Cukes.

I second the Tresemme rec!

Sleek and Shine is pretty moisturizing. Along with Triple Nutrition, it's probably the most moisturizing conditioner I've ever used! I'm not sure if it would be too much for your hair or not... I mean, I think it's worth it to try because it's AMAZING. If it fails as an everyday RO for you, you can use it as a DT instead!

I personally have fine hair and I found GF Triple Nutrition a bit too heavy for my hair; I like the Tresemme Naturals and GF Pure Clean conditioners. Luckily for you, you can get them and try them and if it doesn't work, you can return them. :)

I have fine hair and also get OC'd easily. I agree with Tresemme Naturals Radiant Volume - I use for a co-wash and have used as a LI (it also smells great IMO). I use Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine (just a dime-sized amount) as a leave in and it make detangling a breeze! Goodluck!

Thanks again for the suggestions everyone. :) I'm beginning to wonder if my hair is actually fine because it will get over conditioned so easily, and it will just get weighed down from even slightly heavy conditioners and my curls won't perk up as much. So that is why I'm trying to find a pretty light rinse out conditioner. But my hair doesn't really look invisible when held up to the light, so I'm not sure. :-|

Corrina777 02-14-2012 07:40 AM

I was having the same confusion. I caved and ordered the hair analysis.

Have you tried using protein to perk up your curls?

If your hair gets weighed down easily, I would wager your hair is fine. I get weighed down somewhat easily, but my hair isn't invisible when held up to the light either, so I thought I had medium texture, but when i bought my CurlGenie analysis, it showed that I had fine hair. I also agree with Corrina, you may also need some protein; fine hair tends to do especially well with protein.

britney. 02-15-2012 01:03 AM

I've only tried to do a protein treatment once and it did not make any difference on my hair, but maybe I just need to do it more often for it to make a difference?

kimmidawn 02-15-2012 01:21 AM

It could be that you need to do it more often or leave it on longer. I like leaving IAgirl's PT for anywhere from a half hour to an hour; when I've done it for less, I can barely tell a difference. Granted, no matter what, it's not a drastic difference, but I can definitely see it if I leave it on for a while.

Perhaps your hair is low porosity. I have fine low porosity hair and get build up easily including protein build up. My hair is def not invisible when held to light. I always thought it was more medium to coarse!! Anyway, stuff just sits on my hair and maybe that's happening to you.

I also recommend tresemme naturals. I've used both with no problem. I think the radiant volume(?) one may have a bit more slip.

Jas76 02-15-2012 10:22 AM

Have you tried clarifying? You might do that, followed by the PT, and then a DT. Then see what your results are.

My hair is like yours, to down extent - not fine but not quite medium, maybe a mix of both, yet it behaves as fine hair, for sure.

My hair responds well to protein, but that blessed balance is hard to get! It dries out, too!

So I'd say clarify, then do your PT and DT!

I have only tried the Ion protein treatment pack from Sally's and I only left it on for a couple minutes since it says to leave it on for only 2 - 3 minutes, or 3 - 5 minutes for damaged hair. Would you recommend leaving that on for longer? Maybe just leaving it on for a couple minutes isn't good enough for me. But I'm not sure if it's alright to leave this certain protein treatment on for longer than a couple minutes or not.

Also, I bought the tresemme naturals radiant volume conditioner and the trader joe's tea tree tingle conditioner to try out. I really like them both. The trader joe's tea tree tingle works well as a co-wash and a rinse out for me. So thanks for suggesting these everyone! :)

I would PM IAgirl to get her advice as far as leaving the Ion PT on longer since I agree, I don't know if it would do anything bad to your hair to leave it on for a while. I know with IAgirl's PT, I can leave it on for a long time, but that is because it is very simple as far as ingredients I think.

Is the Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle moisturizing but cleansing? I'm looking for something that won't strip my hair, but also cleanses enough.
