Default those who have used Too Shea- UPDATE - ANOTHER QUESTION

Can this be used as a leave-in? Just a note, I kind of want my hair weighed down; I just was not sure if this conditioner could be used that way.

UPDATE:
Also, if you've used Deva Curl or Care condish, which do you prefer? I tried the Too Shea today & like it, but not sure if I like it that much better than Deva. I would love to stick to the Deva line, since I used Arc Angell & SI,but keep hearing that a-cone is tough to get out. It's great that I can buy the Deva products locally now.

Thanks.

I've used it as a leave in. It's a heavy conditioner so you might just get your wish on weighing your hair down. I have to use it sparingly and it weighs me down enough to keep my hair real compact and low volume.

I've used Too Shea as a leave-in. I use a nickel-sized amount on wet-wet hands and rub my hands together good before applying (like applying re:coil). Then it's not too heavy for me.

I've used it as a leave in too, just in a smaller amount than I would a rinse out.

Not much weighs me down, so I can't speak to that. But, since it weighs some down as a rinse out, I guess it could weight some down as a leave in as well.

Ditto. I use it as a leave in but I don't find it weighs my hair down. So I guess that doesn't really help to much. Maybe if I used more & left more in it would????

I've used it a few times, and it didn't really weigh my hair down. I had pretty fluffy hair(though it did make it dry). It wasn't as heavy as my normal conditioners, so I'm not sure how much weight it'll give you. Everyone's hair is different, so just experiment with it. It may give you the weight your want.

I also love it as a leave-in. I bought Aloebe to use, and will use it up, but I prefer the Too Shea, actually...

I've used it as a styler, believe it or not! As long as I don't put alot in, it works as a leave-in/styler for me. But it's great as just a leave-in.

WOW, interesting! I think I have too much hair to use it as a styler

The A cone is low on the DevaCurl's ingredients list. I never have a problem with it. If I wanted to use an entire line I'd go with devacurl since I love their gels and the finishing product.
I also like that I can get them for cheaper at a site and with free shipping for orders over 25.

I generally take things from whatever line that I like and just don't use the rest that I don't prefer.
I like Jessicur's conditioners but the stylers don't work for me and in the summer sometimes those conditioners make my hair look greasy (I'm in a real humid state) so I use the conditioners in the winter

I like Too Shea and for Deva I prefer Devacurl One C, not the Devacare one. I think the original one is more moisturizing and detangles better. Personally I like the smell better too, but that's just me.

Also, I alternate between a sulfate free cleanser (Jessicurl HCC) and Deva No Poo or a conditioner to wash. I've never had a problem with the cone in One C building up on me. In the summer I actually leave quite a bit of it in under my Angell too.

I love TooShea. Great detangling & moisture. I always leave it in & even add more without getting weighed down. I'm a thick, very dry 3b & leave in every condish & sometimes as more as a leave-in. My hair drinks up TooShea.

I like that OneC is available locally & use it to change things up. Curl OneC is not as moisturizing as TooShea, but more smoothing if that makes sense. Not thrilled with the scent. Care OneC seems to make frizz but smells much better. Both OneC's seem to build up after a few days in a row-- Jessicurl HCC cleans the slate though.

Good luck & have fun trying them all!

Thanks everyone! I am finding the Too Shea is not weighing me down like I had wanted it to so I might go back to the Deva One C.

Medusa, Jessicurl's stylers did not really work for me either.
