Default Best leave in conditioner?

Ok, so from what I've gathered, (new to CG) you need 3 different conditioners if you want to go no poo. One that conditions, one that cleanses, and one you leave in. All free of cones and all that other bad stuff. Right now I am using a vegan conditioner called Nature's Gate and I'm guessing I need two more. I think I'm going to go with V05 for a clarifying one, but what are some good leave ins?

A good cleaning and detangling conditioner is Trader's Joe Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner. About $4 and silicone free. No sulfate of course since conditioners do not have sulfate.

I love Jane Cater's leave in spray detangle. It protects the hair from the sun too.

Choose your products based on the ingredients and your hair properties, KCKT is a detangler not a true conditioner so will work for some and not others. Plenty of curlies only use two conditioners, they use the same one for rinse out and leave in, or sometimes cleanse and leave in.

I really like TN aloe vera and avocado as a detangler and leave-in. How many conditioners you use is up to you. Just make sure you have a co-wash/low poo (whatever you choose) that actually rids of build-up- ingredients wise.

I'm glad I'm reading this thread because I found out that the Jane Cater revitalizing leave in conditioner isn't a leave in at all. So I'll be checking some of these out.

People have been quick to respond with their favorite leave-in.... but just because that leave-in works for them DOES NOT mean it's going to work for you.

Have you figured out your hair properties? What are the dew points like in your city?

Some use the same conditioner, or 2 conditioners, or 3.... depending on their individual needs.

I wash with Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle, RO with Tresemme Naturals, and use either SheaMoisture Milk or KCKT as a leave-in, depending on what I think my hair needs. KCKT isn't really a very moisturizing leave-in, but generally I don't need much extra moisture. I could get away with just using Tresemme for everything, but I think I get better results using different products.

Hi. I need a quick reply. I have 3A hair. Today I went totally off my routine and my hair was a huge ugly frizzy flat mess. My question is, when you use Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner, do you also use it as a leave in? Then do you still use gel? The reason I ask, is my husband could drive me to Trader Joe's tonite, and I could pick it up and try it. Thanks so much....

Best only as rinse out. I think using as leave in or gel may irritate your scalp.

Not really. You could only use one, but use it twice--once for washing (rinse out) and then again for conditioning (rinse out or leave in). Most people use more than one because they like something lighter for washing and then heavier for conditioning, but if you find something you like that will work for both, use it!

On the TJ's TTT, I've never tried it as a leave in. If you have a sensitive scalp, I think it would be best rinsed out.

ETA: Conditioners don't clarify. I don't know why they put "clarifying" on the label, except maybe it's to indicate that it's supposed to go with the clarifying shampoo.
