    If your hair is ok with protein, Cure Care (at Sally's) is a great light option. It can also be used as a co-wash or RO. I also love As I Am Leave-In for when I need a little more moisture. You can also always just use some of your regular RO as LI.

    I like Knot Today too. I also like Say Yes to Carrots (not technically a leave in but has lots of slip and works well).

    Conditioner: Tresemme Naturals
    Leave in: KKKT (with KCCC only)
    HG Gel: KCCC
    Currently experimenting with Garnier Pure Clean

    Knot Today is a great leave in, but it is pretty pricey (it costs $15) so I usually buy Tresemme Natural Conditioner it's only $5 and has amazing slip.

    its not a proper leave in, though i use the rainforest moisture conditioner from the body shop. i have thick hair, but if your hair is thin or only likes light products i wouldnt use it as a leave in.

    my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
    my hair loves conditioner only styling!
    Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
    my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

    You can use any favorite conditioner as a leave in, just a small amount. I use Ion Effective Care (this is my daily rinse out) or my favorite is Shescentit Coco Creme Leave in. I have 3a/b, fine, normal porosity hair.

    I second the Cure Care from Sally's! I bought the smaller bottle of it for under $4 and it works great. Very light and works well with all of my gels. Next time, I'm getting the $9 gallon bottle of it now that I know it works! It's my number one leave in now but sometimes I just use whichever conditioner I used for rinsing out that day as long as it doesn't weigh down my curls.
