Best Leave-in? recs please

I have 3B hair and currently use Devacurl OneC as my leave in, but wondered if others have a leave-in that they really like?

Any recommendations would be appreicated!

I'm currently liking Kinky Curly Knot Today.

I'd recommend ABBA Nourishing, but they reformulated, repackaged & repriced it, so it's got different ingredients, is in a small-ish tube versus bigger bottle & it costs more.

I also like The Body Shop's Amlika.

Jessicurl Aloeba is great.

Have you tried using plain jojoba oil? I like that as well.
My all time favorite leave in is Elucence Moisture Balancing Condish. I use is as a leave in and as a detangler.
Super Thick corkscrews and waves. LOVE Elucence MBC, Giovanni 50/50 condish, Qhemet Products, V05 Calming Chamomile Tea Therapy condish, Jessicurl WDT. These are my official HG's that I love oh so much

Do you need very moisturizing?


I used to use Aloeba, and loved it. However, my hair's gotten so healthy and moisturized it's now *too* moisturizing! I'm now using Paul Mitchel leave-in. It works well for me, since I like using more leave-in and less product.

But at least the pews never attend yoga!
I really like KC Knot Today also. I've also used and liked Paul Mitchell Leave In but I think the protein dried out my hair after a while. A lot of curlies on here love SheaMoisture.

Robert Craig's Conditioner! It makes an excellent leave-in. I have recently only been using that as a cream styler/leave-in and CK over it. Good hair days!

I use Elucence, which is awesome, and Giovanni Direct leave-in. Ounce for ounce they cost about the same, and they both work equally well, so I'm still trying to figure out which I like more.

3B that is no longer CG, but still endeavors to have healthy hair by not using sulfates.
I also recommend Jessicurl's Aloeba. In fact, I just got a new bottle in the mail today. I've been using Oyin Honey Hemp (which is also good), but I've missed Aloeba! Her WDT (or even TS) also makes a good leave-in from what I've heard. GL!
2A/2B, fine, normal porosity

Product Junkie that keeps falling off the wagon!
I'd recommend ABBA Nourishing, but they reformulated, repackaged & repriced it, so it's got different ingredients, is in a small-ish tube versus bigger bottle & it costs more.

Sorry to guano.
Yes ma'am they did.

If I'd know you were almost out, I would rather have shared a bottle with you than with an ungrateful in-law who waved it off to someone else. Nothing is ever good enough for her unless it comes from one of "the golden ones".
Jessicurl WDT and SheaM for me here, or I also use Biolage Conditioning Balm. My runners up are Aloeba, Too Shea and AOHR and sometimes NG Aloe
