Yes I use a Leave In every day. Not really sure about a sealer... My hair seems to have an issue with oils. They just make my hair greasy and icky. I think I have 2b hair, if that helps.

I'm been kicking around the idea of trying to do something with coconut oil again.

For leave in I usually rotate around
Marie Dean Mango butter stuff
Shea Moistures Milk Soothy
Curl Keeper (not really sure if that's a leave in)
CJ Aloe Fix

For gels that go on after the leave in
My homemade okra gel
AG recoil
Eco gel (just tried for the first time yesterday)
Easily a half dozen other gels that are CG approved but I can't remember the names right now.

Shampoos are
Trader Joes tingle stuff
Burts bees stuff
SM shampoo

Yes to carrots
TM naturals
Suave coconut
Mane and tail (haven't actually tried this one yet)
Loreal co wash

I also try to do a yogurt/jello protein treatment once a week. Usually it actually happens every 1.5-2 weeks. Hopefully I can squeeze that in tonight.

I know I'm forgetting lots of products that I have squirreled away, but these are the ones that are in the shower and on the counter tops right now

I figure I'm going to commit to two weeks of shampooing every 4 days then take a check point. Is that enough time? I don't think my hair has any build up right now... but it's not feeling dry either. To much moisture or products just weighs it down. Can't there just be a magic wand? LOL

I agree with Sixelamy: leave in is shortform for leave in conditioner, so a product rich in the major emollients (fatty alcohols/ cationic surfactants). You are using two stylers/ curl definers instead of a leave in conditioner and a styler. L'Oreal co-wash is a cleansing product, not really a conditioner.

If you are easily weighed down you might be best avoiding ingredients that are prone to building up - especially butters and waxes (including cetyl esters).
