Default Looking for a good leave-in CO...any suggestions?

Hello everyone, newbie here! I just went CG this month (thanks to all of your helpful posts!), and I'm looking for a good leave-in to add to my routine. Right now I am using the Suave Naturals coconut co-wash and Jessicurl Too Shea for my condish. My hair "used" to be 3b but has been extremely damaged (many reasons) and I'm trying to get it back to full health. It's also very coarse, thick, and porous. Right now I'm also using as few products as possible, just HE Totally Twisted and Jessicurl Confident Coils....I'm planning a Curlmart order with the Re:Coil and Curl Keeper and wanted throw a good leave-in in the order too since my hair is always pretty dry! Oh yeah, I also use the Jessicurl WDT....TIA

I have used every cg leave-in under the sun, and I am having the BEST luck with Garnier Triple Nutrition condish. This is just a regular condish meant to be used as a rinse out. It doesn't do much for me as a rinse out, but, holy smokes, as a leave-in this stuff performs miracles for my hair. Fantastic value and very easy to find too. There are a couple threads going about it on this board, so you can read up on it there. Good luck with your search!

Thanks to a very nice curly here, I've been trying out a sample of Afro Detangler and I am LOVING it! I can use more than I can of other leave-ins and not get weighed down at all. My hair really likes butters and I am SO glad I finally tried this stuff.

I've been reading the threads about this, but didn't think about using it as a leave-in....hmmm, from all I've been hearing about it I might have to give it a try (especially since it's cheap)!! Thanks!

Here is the site for the Afro Detangler:
http://www.growafrohairlong.com/afrodetanglerhalfgallon.html
This is one of my favourite leave-in conditioners. When I'm trying a new styler, it is the leave-in I use underneath it. I haven't found a product that it doesn't 'play' well with.

I don't use the same product two days in a row ... I have had problems when I do that. As a result, I have tried MANY leave-ins ... and I'm a total PJ ... so ... here are some of the other leave-ins I like.
  • KBB Nectar
  • CJ leave-in
  • DM leave-in (she has changed the name a few times - not sure what it is now)
  • KCKT
The following are also good rinse-outs:

Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!
