Another KCCC Thread: Which leave-in?

Knot Today is never in stock so what else are you guys using?

I see ABBA, VO5 Strawberries and Cream (is this discontinued because I never see it), and what else?

What about PM The Conditioner?

What leave-ins are silicone and oil free?
Ooooh! Good post! I'm in the same situation and would love to know what people are using as a substitute for Knot Today in combo with the Curling Custard.

I have had luck with suave Aloe Lily, and the TIGI Moisture Maniac is another possibility
I tried SheaM under it yesterday and my hair smelled delish and looked great to boot!

SheaM? Really? Well, I've got that right here (and more on the way, as you know! ) Thanks!

And Joya, thank you as well. I'm due for another Suave purchase (cuz there are only 7 bottles of conditioner in my house instead of 12 now), so I'll try the Aloe Lily.

I have used PM The Conditioner as a leave-in with good results.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
Cool. Thanks!

I think the suave Aloe Lily is great because it has no oils, proteins, glycerin (which I can't seem to tolerate), and it is an awesome CO wash
I have never used the Knot today under it - I started using the Hamadi leave in and now I am using SheaM. Both work great but I think I give the edge to SheaM. Now in regards to clumping I would give the edge to the Hamadi.

I used the CJ banana hibiscus leave in the first time I used KCCC--and had my best hair day ever. It even "tamed" the dry crown area. Of course, my hair never looked like that again.

Does that make sense? In any event - its freaking annoying!

I will add that I did my first KCCC/KCKT (thanks to a wonderful swap with heavengirl 410 I got that coveted KCKT) Great tight curls, soft moist hair, minimal--everywhere but my problem crown. Tomorrow, I will add a little CJ leave-in to the crown.

It's a good combo. Unfortunately, my hair likes variety. At least I'm finding a few good things.

Nevertheless, I will give it a try -- especially now that I know you (like me) don't handle glycerin well.

Fine, 3b, protein sensitive

What I like
LLL Green Tea shampoo
JC CCSS, Biotera gel, HETT mousse, GF curl shaping spray gel
Joya, the Aloe Lily keeps your hair moisturized? Is that the only moisturizing product you use daily? How does it work for clumping?

I tried SM but it made my hair stringy. I do not think my hair likes oils at all and w/ KCCC it is looks greasy even though it does not feel greasy.

I am thinking to have success with the KCCC the leave-in must not have oils or silicones. If it has one of those you may get inconsistent results (like the CJ product).

Thanks, all.

I forgot to add if you get 2nd day hair from the Aloe Lily conditioner and the KCCC? Do you rinse daily or reapply the conditioner daily? Just wondering if leaving in a rinse out conditioner causes build-up and dryness.

LeeLee, does the VO5 dry your hair out at all when you leave it in and do you do add more leave-in the next day? I have not left in rinse-out conditioners because of fear of dryness but am tempted to after seeing your and joya results.

BTW, which leave-in did you use under the ecostyler? Your hair looks so soft in the picture. I had nice results the first day but by the next day it was hard. Do you think something like the Suave aloe or the VO5 would work underneath it?

Thanks.
