Giovanni Leave-In Conditioner

My hair absolutely loves the Giovanni Leave-In Conditioner. I put the leave in on my hair and rub it in. It defines my curls and leaves my hair soft and manageable. I am thinking about doing a combination of the Giovanni and the Kinky Curly...Hmmm... it might just work.
The more I hear about Giovanni, the more desperate I am to get my hands on some. Hopefully there will be some at Target next time I go.

Its is amazing... its the only thing that can detangle my hair, and ive tried zillions of condishes, including another Giovanni condish (50:50). I have to say however that it doesnt really moisturise my hair tho... but that may just be the relaxed hair, i cant say yet how it is for my natural hair.

My hair likes:
Alba Botanical Leave-in is my irst HG :-)
Condish: AOHR
Co-wash: Original Source Tea Tree Mint
Post-BC hair HATES protein!
I love this leave-in! The smell alone is reason enough for me to use it. My inner product junkie keeps me from fully committing to it (as I'm currently having an affair with Abba leave-in), but it's definitely on my list of awesome products .

3B that is no longer CG, but still endeavors to have healthy hair by not using sulfates.
Just an FYI, I went to my local Rite-Aid today and all Giovanni products were BOGO. Mine didn't have the LI, which I already have, so I got the 50:50 and Deep Moisture. I don't know if ALL locations will have it on sale but just a heads up in case they do and have the LI. The reg co is great too!

I didn't even know they sold it there!

I was so excited to try this...but my hair hates it.
I have tried it 2x and both times my hair was very straw-like. I wonder what in it is causing my hair to freak out.

Buy One, Get One Shampoo or Conditioner. It doesn't say anything about Leave In.. I'll get there maybe later on this afternoon and check it out. (now that I think about it.. I don't think my Rite-Aid carries the Leave In.)

Type 2b. Wash: WEN pomegranate or fig. Leave-in conditioner: Alaffia beautiful curls for wavy hair, Spiral Solutions Protein spray. Style: Curls In A Bottle, Ecostyler, or KCCC.
I love this stuff. I've been using it for a year or so. I only use a quarter sized squeeze though, anymore and it makes my hair icky. I put it on before my mousse or gel.
Oh yeah, a little definitely goes a long way. My hair will feel weighed down otherwise.

On another note, a great place to get Giovanni products cheap is www.totalhealthvitamins.net The leave-in costs only $4.77 there (as opposed to $8 retail).
hair type: 2B/3A
low poo: Elucence moisture; Elucence clarifying (after swimming)
condish: CJ smoothing; CJ argan; CJ repair me; CJ curl rehab; CJ strengthening (summer only)
winter/spring styling: CJ Beauticurls leave-in + Curly Kinks coil jam + Ouidad mongongo oil; or CJ leave-in + SpiralSolutions CEJ & FHG
summer/fall styling: CJ CCCC lite + CJ Curl Queen

There's a site where you can buy liters for about $12, but I can't find the link/discussion. If anyone know it, could they please tell us. TIA.

Found it, it's Massagewarehouse.com
