At the risk of sounding obvious, the way to use conditioner as a leave in is to leave it in! You just don't rinse all of it out (hence, some gets left in)

VO5 & Sauve aren't condtioning enough during the winter months for me. I use thicker, creamier conditioners like LPVNG, Biolage Condtioning Balm, nature's gate or KKKT for conditioning. My hair needs lots of moisture. Sometimes I used the thicker conditioners and water them down for a leave-in. I think it all depends on what you hair likes and can tolerate. Giovanni Direct Leave-In is another great leave-in and easily found in drugstores or Target. You just have to play around with a few to find out what your hair likes.

lighter conditioners are generally better for co-washing (suave naturals, vo5, white rain, etc.)

thicker/more moisturizing conditioners are generally better for rinse out/leave ins/combo of the two.

there are 2 ways to leave in regular condish. the first is to just not rinse out all of your "rinse-out" condish (you always rinse out all of your co-wash, as that has the dirt and stuff that was on your hair). the second is to either just co-wash and use a leave-in (no rinse-out) or to use a rinse-out AND a separate leave-in. and in that case, you just put the chosen condish in your hair after you're out of the shower and leave it in. even if it's not billed as a leave-in, it should be fine.

another drugstore condish that is very moisturizing is BioInfusion Conditioning Balm (Walgreen's knock-off of Biolage).

To me it smells just like Biolage Conditioning Balm and at a much better price, works the same as far as I'm concerned. I don't use much, maybe a nickle size amount. So it goes a long way! Sally's makes a knock-off as well.
