Coarse Curlies: Lets share our leave-in or stylers here...!

i have to soak my hair every day or it dreads up.

i think daily water and air-drying is a bit hard on my hair but devachon did say that certain curlies have to soak their hair every day to get styled curls.

for my leave-in i'm using GVP CB.

i seem better off without gels.

sometimes i add oil without much styling difference.
I'm really loving KBB Super Silky as my leave-in and HE Body Envy or HE Set Me Up as my styling gel.
Currently:Alaffia Shea & Coconut Enriching Shampoo, Alaffia Virgin Coconut & Shea Enriching Hair Lotion, Qhemet Amla Olive Heavy Cream, Qhemet Honeybush Tea Gel.

By coarse you mean each hair is thick? Wiry? Mine is like that.

I like the walgreens fake biolage balm as rinse out
The Fructis Triple Nutrition as next rinse out, sometimes also as leave-in
Some sort of styling creme, have used lots of 'em with OK results, still experimenting, sometimes KCCC instead of creamy stuff.
Loreal Glossy Curls gel or sometimes HESMU but it's not quite as good on my hair

I guess you can tell my hair likes oil.

I thought it hated protein (because it HATED tresemme and didn't like Suave coconut) but I got the Biosilk Creme and it is great so I guess worm protein is OK, LOL.

I don't wash every day. Yes it gets tangled but since not as curly it does not lock up too bad. I put it in a bun to sleep.

Mm... I just DTed yesterday with a honey/olive oil/condish mixture and my hair is softer, but not soft soft if you get what I mean.
I just bought Garnier Fructise's new 3 in 1 condish that has like a cone but it's water soluble .. and have it on my hair now. After I wash it out, we'll see if it worked, lol.
I usually leave-in some of my condish, but since I'm changing conditioners, we'll see.
BB curl butter worked okay for my hair, gave it shine, but I wanted a little bit more definition and less frizz. If I use gel, then it's the one in my siggy, but I don't over do it or else I get terrible crunch/clumps.
Hair Type: 3c/4a, Med-High Density
CG since '09
in the summer time, i was just using FOTE AVG as a leave in. in the cold, i was using pink boots, FOTE AVG, lustrasilk olive oil, and maybe now fool around with some of my samples that include kbb milk and nectar, curl junkie cccc, dm coco something, aloe fix.

Ever since I overdid the protein a couple months ago, I've been using Suave (I like the lavender scent) as my leave-in/styler. For now (as in, it's not too cold yet), the condish is good alone. Winter...I may add honey or Boots Pink. Who knows, this will be only my 2nd winter CG and I never figured out a routine last winter...it's going to be a long winter.

The TJ Refresh is heavy so it's a great LI for those with coarse/thick hair. It's the only condish that doesn't leave my hair product-y feeling. Thinking about trying the Lustrasilk Olive Oil Cholesterol as LI for first time.
