Favorite affordable leave in Conditioner

I'm looking at different leave in conditioners to get but I'm lost for which one I should choose. I have 3b hair. Does anyone have any recommendations for an affordable leave in conditioner?

    I also have 3B hair and I have several faves. I use a lot of leave-in so the CJ options and other $15-$20 12 oz bottles are just too expensive for my everyday use.

    I like Garnier Triple Nutrition for a drugstore leave-in but the oils can react with some styling products. I really like Abba Gentle that I buy by the liter when Ulta has the $15 liter sales. I also like Elucence Moisture Balancing Condish as a leave-in but buy it by the liter during CurlMart sales. The Beauty Without Cruelty leave-in is good and costs about $6-7 from Vitacost. GL!
    3b, fine texture, low to normal porosity
    Low Poos:
    MOP C Hydrating, JC HCC, Ion Swimmer's Poo
    Condish: GVP Balm, Kenra, Tigi Oatmeal/Honey, DE Coconut
    Leave-In: BWC, Abba Gentle, KBB Nectar, GFTN
    Stylers: CJ AF/CIAB, SS CEJ/FHG, QCCC, Komaza Puddings, EW SAJ or Alba Soft Curl w/KKSS, Kenra, Homemade FSG, AOMM, CK/QB HTSG

    After months of looking for a good LI, I took LiveCurlyLiveFree's advice and just used my regular conditioner. It works really well and is one less bottle to put on the side of the tub (mine looks like a salon shelf). :toothy4:
    Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
    Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
    Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

    Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
    Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
    Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

    Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny
