Leave In and Rinse Out Suggestions?
I've been putting off this post for too long. I am in need of LI and RO suggestions.
Right now I used GVP CB as a RO and kind of LI, in that I don't always rinse it complete out. Then I add AG Re:coil Curl Cream, which I like for definition, but it leaves my hair fairly dry and sometimes brittle at the end of the day. I use Biotera gel to finish, which gets the job done.
In the past I've used these LIs:
KCKT -- Not enough slip, feels drying
CJ Coffee Coco Creme (not Lite) -- Hated it, felt like it did nothing for my hair, not moisturizing, not drying. It just sat there.
Loreal Out of Bed -- not bad, but the 'cones were a bit havoc-wreaking.
ROs I've used:
GVP CB -- The only thing that works, but it doesn't feel as moisturizing as it used to.
Trader Joe's Refresh Citrus Conditioner -- not enough slip
Garnier Triple Nutrition -- too heavy, not enough slip
CJ Curl Rehab -- drying, zero slip
Yes To Carrots -- love it, but not moisturizing enough to tame my frizz.
Based on what hasn't worked, what can you recommend?
Money isn't a problem, so drugstore or salon brands are welcome. I'd like to give another CJ product a shot, but haven't had great luck with them. I've had Deva products on my hair when I've gotten Deva Cuts and they've been hit or miss.
In case you can't see my siggie, my hair is fine, with normal porosity and elasticity.
