5 Leave~ Ins that I LOVE and Why!
Oyin Handmade Honey Hemp Conditioner ~ This is my absolute favorite. It smells AMAZING! thats first. Its marketed as a Conditioner that can also be used as a leave in. Its organic. I use this condish after every Wash/CoWash and under any other Leave In that I might be using. Its the first thing that I apply to my damp hair. No special method, just a quarter size sized amount smoothed thru my hair from root to ends. I usually follow with another favorite. It seems to immediately seal in moisture by stopping my hair from dripping once applied. Its not super thick. I also use it to enhance some not so favorite products, if they are not doing what I want them to do.
Giovanni Direct Leave In Conditioner ~ I love, love, love this stuff. I found this product when I was looking for an organic alternative to Mixed Chicks. It works great alone, but also plays friendly with other products. A little goes a long way with this product. I usually shingle this in AFTER i have applied my Honey Hemp Condish and let my hair air dry. I also use this to twist my lil Chicks hair (I add jojoba oil to it for her) I love the way this leave in clings to my hair, it smells really good and seems to dry quicker than the rest. Its nice and thick. This product is certified organic and is sold at Whole Foods.
Ohm Body Sweet Hair Pudding ~ I am so glad that I was recently introduced to this product! (This is where my product Junkyism pays off!!!) Its a very thick strawberry yogurt looking cream. It comes in a jar and It smells divine. Not only does this product smell like a treat, its like a decadent treat for my hair. It seems to grab and absorb into my hair, holding onto it while it dries. Leaving it super curly & soft to the touch. (I have also used this product for a Bantu Knot out and got EXCELLENT results)
Kinky Kurly Knot Today Leave in/Detangler ~ I got this Leave In along with the Kinky Kurly Curling Custard. Although the Custard did nothing for my hair, I found a gem in the Knot Today. I am not sure if this one is organic or not. I use it as a leave in. It smells great, it comes in a bottle so its not super thick, but very effective. It dries leaving my hair soft and touchable, just the way I like. Its not necessary to add anything to this conditioner, it works just fine all by itself. You can get it at Whole Foods and Target.
