Favorite leave-in conditioners?
 
What have you found to be your favorite leave-in conditioner? I am finding that I need one and so I turn here for suggestions. I tried Aloeba as a leave-in but it has left my hair frizzy and at mid-day a little flat. I use BRHG as my product. I am not on CG but I do like to use CG friendly products. My hair is 3b. Thanks for your help! Please let me know your hair type if you would...

I'm a 3b and right now I'm really liking the Curl Junkie Banana & Hibiscus Leave In for fine hair.

One C and Elucence are probably my favorites. I know there's another one that's slipping my mind at the moment though. :?

I like Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Original as my leave-in.

I like the Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine leave-in

I leave in some of my Back to basics peach pomegranate conditioner and then put beauty without cruelty leave in over that or Giovanni direct leave in. The Giovanni is a bit more moisturizing. Lovely stuff.
It's real dry here now so I could probably use too shea as a leave in if I had it. Aloeba would be too light.

Generally I can add some jojoba oil to my leave in and do fine without having to buy a heavier one.

I am a 3B with naturally dry, medium-to-coarse curls and my favorite leave-in is Curls Milkshake. It is paraben free, natural-based, has a smooth creamy texture to it, and it is leaves your hair very soft after each use.

The last few weeks I've been using GF CurlnShine conditioner as my leave-in (not the matching leave-in conditioning creme). I never tried it with the SleeknShine but I will. My hair drinks up the conditioner and even though I have fine/thin hair, it doesn't weigh my hair down.

Elucence is my fav but the Regis Olive Oil leave in is also a good one :)

xfancy 01-26-2007 06:55 PM

GF sleek and shine leave-in is pretty good.

3B here with fine hair, but lots of it. I like Abba Nourishing Leave-in the best. I also like Elucence, and have even used Suave Coconut as a leave-in with ok results. All are CG friendly.

Curl Junkie Hibiscus & Banana leave-in fine

Has anyone tried that Giovanni leave-in?

I bought some tonight. I'm going out tomorrow (aka going to be doing my hair properly :P ), so I'll let everyone know.

udoknowjac 01-27-2007 06:52 AM

Does anyone have this same problem, or perhaps it was just the Aleoba. With the leave in my hair was boucy and great at the start of the day ( a bit frizzy but the curls looked great). By the end of the day I was a mess! Weighed down and oh so frizzy. It was if the leave in took all the hold out of the BRHG?

A lot of you mention the Curl Junkie Hibiscus & Banana leave-in. Would anyone be willing to send me a sample? I would pay you. I hate to but it from CurlMart and pay all the shipping if it too will not work.

Thanks so much!

Yes, I tried it yesterday & have it in today. So far, I really like it....

Great! I'm going to go do my hair in a few more hours. The bottle says it gives body, which I didn't notice when I was in the store. :? I don't need much help with the volume department but I'll give it a try! If it doesn't work out nicely in my hair, I will give it to my mom or brothers.

I have plenty of volume as well & did not notice any extra volume. It does not weigh down the hair (which I would not mind), but nothing added.

My favorite leave-in conditioners.

long_n_curly 01-27-2007 10:49 PM

I really like a bit of Curls Ecstacy Asian hair tea I have fine hair but it doesnt weigh me down.

x_tigerlily 01-28-2007 12:00 PM

Ok, so I tried the Giovanni stuff last night and today. Last night my hair was really product-y (with a bunch of other things) so I didn't really notice much of a difference. This morning I woke up and my hair looked decent, actually. It wasn't as dry as normal. Today I used it again and my hair is still wet, but so far, I like how it makes my hair feel soft. :)
