Default Leave-in recommendations?

I've been using my rinse out (Tresseme Naturals) as my leave in, but am beginning to suspect it's weighing my hair down.

Can anyone recommend a good drugstore leave in that is lighter than TN?

I'm 2C, Normal/high porosity, medium texture & med/high density

I usually use Suave naturals coconut conditioner. They are so cheap that its worth a try. If you don't like it you can always use it as shaving cream...

Currently using but not sure if i'm loving:

Lo-poo: SM yucca

Sometimes I pixie diffuse, Always towel turban, Finally stopped touching while wet , Always SOTC, lose curl definition and get frizzy after a few hours.

I use that as my co-wash--it'd be okay to use as a leave in too? That'd be convenient

I've used it as a Co wash rinse out and leave in. I'm no expert yet, only been cg for 4 weeks or so but its been my main product...just try it one day and see how it goes. Everyones hair is different and can react differently to products. Let me know how it works for you. Good luck!

By the way today i used natures gate biotin conditioner as my rinse out/leave in with a little protein filler in the leave in, its my best hair day yet.

I switched from TN to Renpure (red). I like it better.

Do you use the Renpure Conditioner, or do they make a specific leave in?

Renpure doesn't make any leave in conditioners, but their FB page recommends adding a bit of their RO conditioners to 2nd day hair as a LI if it's feeling dry. I'm getting great results conditioner only styling with their Brazilian Keratin Straightening conditioner as LI in the 70 (and above) dewpoints lately.

I use the regular Renpure as a leave in. I'm currently using a number of different conditioners, though.
