Default Leave-ins prefs: CJ Hib&Banana Fine vs. Giovanni Direct

I'm in love with CJ Hibiscus & Banana Honey leave-in (fine) but not in love with its glycerin content that strips/fades my color.

So I was in Whole Foods today in -- where else? -- the hair care aisle and picked up Giovanni Direct Leave-in that has no glycerin.

If you have used both, which do you prefer? Or do have another leave-in keeper that is non-glycerin/non-protein and moisturizing?

I don not color my hair, so I am interested in the CJ Bananna and Hibiscus leave in. I currently use the Giovanni direct leave in and I love it. It gives definition, and it seems to really moisturize my hair. The only reason that I want to try the other leave in is because I am a true PJ and cant resist

I'm going to Whole Foods today. The PJ is calling. The thick consistency that you mentioned in the HG thread hooked me.

Although it seems that you've tried it already, so I'm not sure if you're still looking for input, I'll throw in my 2cents in a few days.

Yes, yes I still want to know what you think! You too, Ashkins. (Even though I've been using it for the past few days )

I had my first run tonight. It seems to be a little more moisturizing than the Milkshake, and a bit less so than the CJ. It had a nice feel to it. I'm proceeding cautiously since I'm not quite sure how I am with soy protein. It'll probably take a week to see how that goes. It'll be great if this works out since I can buy it locally.
