Question What do you prefer a creamy leave in or a spray leave in?

I was wondering what leave in do you fellow curlies prefer a creamy one or a spray leave in and why?

Thick creamy leave-in...for two reasons...I'm messy with the spray...and because I use the leave-in as like a curl cream.

Initially a creamy leave-in. After wards for spot treatment or light overall touch-up I like the spray.

A creamy leave-in.I tried a spray before and it just dried out my hair.The creamy leave-in is more moisturizing in my hair.

I use a spray leave in. My hair is fine and easily weighed down. When I use KCKT, I have to use a microscopic amount or it's too much for my hair.

While I prefer a spray, because I feel I get better coverage and distribution, I am using the other for now because that's all I have.

Creme. Spray leave ins do nothing for my hair.

Never, ever any sprays for me... slippery at first then sticky & spotty, & dust/dirt-attracting.

I'm a both type of girl. I usually pop some spray leave-in in my hair immediately after showering. And then I follow with my styling products, during which I add a creamy leave-in. I tend to prefer creams though.

I used to be a creamy leave in, but they always weighed my hair down and made me feel like I had to rewash my hair. I recently discovered Aveeno's spray leave in though and I have to say it works great! My hair is silky and smooth with no weigh down whatsoever!

I use a heavier, creamy leave-in in the winter. In the fall I use a lighter, spray leave-in. I don't need any in the spring or summer.
