I managed to get hold of some of this (thanks mumofcurlygirl!) and was wondering how you use it. Do I use it straight after co-washing and forego my rinse-out (LVPNG)? Or do I use it after using my rinse-out?

Thanks!

It really depends on how much moisture your hair needs. Personally, I can use both and my hair is OK with that, but some people may find it's just too much.

I LOVE this stuff on my little girls hair she's a 3A/2B I use it as a styler. For 2nd day and WELL BEYOND Spritz/Detangle Scrunch and her curls are perfectly formed when dry. Doesn't work on my hair this way though.

Thanks, both. I'll have to play around with it, I think!

My hair is pretty fine and is very easily overconditioned but it loves this stuff.

I don't use it as a rinse out. I rinse all of my regular conditioner out then honey rinse. I put in about a quarter sized blob of the GLI and brush through. Then the rest of my products.

I use Giovanni Leave In as a leave in right after I get done rinsing out my rinse out. Haha that was probably the funniest sentence I've written in a while.

Anyway, I love it, I also use it when I scrunch the crunch of my gel out, I just coat my hands ever so lightly with it.

I actually tried it this morning. I decided to add it straight after rinsing out my rinse-out and added the leave-in when it was still wet. I guess I used it as I would the Boots Curl Creme as I didn't add anything after that. I'm really pleased with the curls though - nice clumping and ringlets
