What do you use as a Leave-In?
 
I've been using GDLI, but it just seems sort of hit and miss with me. As you all know im hoping to buy some new products soon, and I would love for someone to recommend a good Leave-In. I was looking at Fast Food, but it has cones, and im trying to get away from them.

SOOO what do you use?

I just mentioned in another thread that I've been using Trader Joe's Nourish as a leave in.. and I'm liking it.
I may change my tune next week.. but it's working for now.
I know that some curlies use Sauve with good results.

CurlyCara 05-02-2009 06:09 PM

Pshhh Unfortunately I have No Trader Joes near me, and I cant use Suave it gives me TONS of frizz.

CurlyOver40! 05-02-2009 06:17 PM

How about Biolage? I wouldn't buy any, but if you have some lying around.

CurlyCara 05-02-2009 06:44 PM

Nope. None of that either.

I use either Kinky Curly Knot Today or Jane Carter's Revitalizing Leave-In. The JC is a lightweight spray if you don't need as much moisture.

I've used both the LPVNG and the GF Body Boost or Moisture Works (new formulation, only contains the "a-cone") with good results. I don't have the GF Sleek & Shine, because I'm pretty sure when I read the back of the bottle it had more than just the a-cone in it, but it would probably work just as well. HTH!

Sometimes I use a bit of ISO bouncy creme - no cones, love how it feels in my hair - it doesn't smell good though! ugh...but I still love it!

I have the GF sleek & shine and it now has no cones in it at all. I use it as a leave in sometimes. Mostly, I use the GVP conditioning balm.

I'm loving Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Leave-In. I've been using it for the past 2 weeks and I've consistently had great hair days.

OperaCurls 05-03-2009 02:55 PM

Burt's Bees Very Volumizing Pomegranate-somethingorother Conditioner is nice and light: makes my hair feel light and clean, gives great shine, and smells great. Glycerin is pretty high up on the ingredient list, so I only use it under a glycerin-free styler, like KCCC.

LVPNG: the protein made my curls defined and perky, and it was a great detangler, but I can't find it anywhere anymore. Figures.

Giovanni 50:50 Conditioner: I was worried that this would be too heavy for my hair, but it's been working great for the last few weeks under the CJ Aloe Fix gel.

CurlyCara 05-03-2009 03:15 PM

I think I decided to get some Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Leave In Conditioner, I was gettting quite a few of their other products to. I think ill just guve it a try. But thank you Opera Curls thats a great suggestion because its something I can get locally.

DEL2C 05-03-2009 03:21 PM

I stopped using a LI once Spring came but the best for me was LOOC or the Shea Mango which you have. I liked the Olive oil better it wasn't as heavy for me, but for you it may be work. Have you tried using just a bit of your Rinse out as a LI????

Adele 05-03-2009 03:24 PM

As a leave-in, I only use homemade or natural products. And anyway, I live in Europe so I don't have the same products as you do. ;)

So, as a leave-in I use a homemade balm, made with sheabutter, vegetable oils, beeswax, vitamin E and essential oils.

Or sometimes I just use some basic alcohol-free gel, with some vegetable oil (such as jojoba). :)

CurlyCara 05-03-2009 03:44 PM

No Del My love I havent. I guess I can try that for now. Instead of buying something especially for a LI. I guess its sort of silly. Ill try the Shea Mango again, Ive been experimenting the Giovanni 50/50, I also have LVPNG but its not the normal kind its for dry and damaged hair, and I also recently got Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine, which Ill try.

Oh geez MsG, I've been trying to put off ordering some of this but you just pushed me over the edge! :mrgreen: Here's to 2 weeks of consistently great hair days! :occasion5:

:occasion5: After 3 years, this is the first leave-in I can say I actually LOVE. I was using a little Suave Coconut for a leave-in for awhile with pretty good results, but there's no comparison to the CJ!

msgiblet 05-03-2009 06:38 PM

Oops - DP.

Heather0kay 05-03-2009 06:53 PM

My favorite regular conditioner , Komaza Aloe or KBB Milk.

Nallia 05-03-2009 06:54 PM

I use AOHR or KBB Hair Milk.
