I'm Back....now what products to use?

Hello ladies! After many years and three sets of locs, i'm back to being a loose natural for good.My hair goal is healthy, strong, as long and wild as it will grow hair cheaply. I"ve been using KCKT with KCCC, then figured out that the KCKT works great under just plain Aloe Gel. Now i'm looking to replace the KCKT with a less expensive leave in. Possibly one i can get at my local store.
Any suggestions?
For the record I like to keep it simple. I co-wash every other day or so, I detangle every two week(the only time a brush/comb touches my hair). ACV whenever it feels gunky. I don't DC because my current routine seems to be doing the trick.
ACV Rinse 2-3 times a week
Nature's Gate Biotin Conditioner
Curly Kinks: Satin Root, Coil Jam
Castor oil on scalp

    Here is a great thread filled with leave in ideas.


    I used to use KCKT faithfully as well but I swear by Shea Moistures curl and style cream now. Maybe this thread can give you some ideas and a lot of the ladies share favorites too.

    3c/4aish, high porosity, fine strands,medium density cottony curls.

    Lots of folks say TRESemme Naturals works a lot like KCKT. Even works WITH KCCC. Or so I've heard.

    Giovanni direct is a great multi purpose leavein because you maybe able to style with it too.
    Sheamoisture curl and style milk is a great option if a glycerin isn't an issue at this time.
    Tresemme naturals (The nourishing one) works very well.

    I always seal with coconut oil too.
    My hair: thick, medium/coarse, high porosity in the crown naturally, normal porosity everywhere else.

    Currently using...
    Poo: Any sulfate free or low sulfate poo
    Rinse out: Tresemme Naturals
    Leave-in: Camille Rose Moisture Milk
    DC: Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea DC
    Stylers: Xtreme Wetline gel

    I will have to agree on the TRESemme Naturals. It does not leave you with helment hair plus it does not take all day to dry. So far so good and the result are consistant. I co wash, apply the TRESemme Naturals as my leave-in/style and seal with an oil and I am good to go.
