As a low porosity, 3a curly, my favorites are Kinky Curly Knot Today and As I Am Leave-in. Super slippy and moisturizing, but also not heavy at all. My hair LOVES the marshmallow root in KCKT.
Best Leave-Ins for Low Porosity, 3A Hair??
I usually use SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner as a leave-in, but it takes a really long time to absorb and sometimes it makes my hair a little bit crunchy because it doesn't absorb all the way. I have also tried the Be Curly leave-in conditioner from Aveda but it just doesn't really work with my hair.... are there any products you recommend? (Especially if they're from SheaMoisture, because I do like that brand)
My hair is fine/low porosity. Couldn't use the Shea M products, they just sat on my hair. I had to wash them out. My hair prefers more natural products. I stay away from a lot of chemicals, especially polyquats (4, 7 and 10.) If you go to CurlTalk, you'll find a lot of others with similar hair. Look in their signatures for what they use. It's a good place to get ideas.
