Default 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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
