Default Has anyone tried Garnier's new Leave-in?

Well I think it's new. I've never heard of it or seen it. Its the Leave-in for Color Treated or Permed hair. I wonder how it compares to the others.

Actually, this has been around for quite awhile. In fact, this is the only GF leave-in my Walmart carries (no Curl and Shine or Sleek and Shine), which is a source of weekly frustration to me.

I remember that I didn't like it very much, but that was before I had settled into a good hair routine, so its not a very valid opinion.

It's a holy grail for me, & beloved by many here. Do a search & you'll find some big threads on this.

Their conditioners -- absolutely! Their style product --- ehhh, not so much. Unlike the rinse-out cond's which are quite different from each other, the leave-ins are all pretty similar: all amazing!

i tried sleek and shiine and just got curl and shine. i coudlnt find the leave in conditioning cream, it was sold out so i bought another bottle of the curl and shine for two bucks! (was on sale for three, and a dollar off coupon).

they're both great!!! just have the a-cone in it, but easy to remove.

anyone notice a difference between the two?

I'm not sure the one pictured is the curl and shine, it doesn't have glycerin in it.

BurlesqueCantata- The sleek and shine and curl and shine are the same except curl and shine has glycerin in it. The glycerine makes my hair curlier so I always get that one

It looks like SmallFry's the only one actually talking about the leave-in for Color Treated or Permed Hair.

I really like the Sleek and Shine, and the Length and Strength rinse out conditioners. Right now I'm using the L&S rinse out and I'm LOVING it.

I also like the Leave in Conditioning creams. They work well for me as leave ins AND stylers. Sometimes they can leave a little bit of a thick, gunky feeling, so I usually mix mine w/ a bit of water in my hand before running it through my hair.

I have tried the Sleek and Shine and find it does nothing for my hair once it gets warm and humid outside. It's fine in the winter, though.

Since I colored my hair that's the one I bought. My intentions were to use it in place of a gel but my results were not good, initially my hair looked really good but after a while I started to get frizz. :x
