Some girls use their co wash as a leave in. Please know that all herbal essences products have cones in it. So you won't want to use that. But to be sure, cones end in "cone, xane, & conol." Another good resource is the live curly live free website. Make sure that you find products based on your hair properties & dew points in your area. Check out the curls on the go app on your smart phone. Wonderful tool.
