Hey all, I looking for DTs and LIs. I'm looking for something that will leave the hair reasonably soft to touch after it has air dried.

    I love trader joe's nourish spa conditioner. it isnt label a LI, but I co wash and leave some of it in and my hair feels great with it. It's only like $3 and works great for me. What have you tried previously? What are your hair properties. It is hard to make suggestions w/o any info

    It's coarse, dense, low porosity. I have never used a leave in before. I just wash, condition and apply oil (EVCO, EVOO) to seal damp hair. Regular conditioners I have used include Kiehl's Argan Oil, Organic Care Dry Nourish, Herbal Essences the blue one (hydration?) and the pink one for coloured hair and tresemme naturals nourishing. I have stopped using the hair mayonnaise type products.

    I have medium-coarse, low porosity, dense hair. I normally use my rinse-out as a leave-in. The ones I normally use are Jessicurl Too Shea and Tresseme Naturals moisturizing conditioner.

    I'll give the Trader Joe's tea tree tingle a go - thanks Inimitable - and the Jessiecurl Too Shea as well to start off with. When I use the Tresemme nourishing moisture as a leave-in my hair feels soft but there is always residue left on the comb after use. I have the same issue with Kiehl's. My hair looks dull / greyish.

    Would the MATRIX Biolage hydrathérapie line be worth trying? In particular, the hydra-seal softening mist and the aqua-immersion creme masque. Their key ingredients are aloe and algae...

    Lately I've found that Jamaican black castor oil is a great leave in for me. I apply it sparingly in sections on DAMP hair that's been conditioned and cleansed. No leave in has ever made my hair feel as luscious and soft as castor oil! It also gives my hair an awesome sheen too. I'm in love and sold.

    I have medium density hair and fine strands so using it sparingly is the key or my hair will get greasy. But if I don't get happy with the oil, my hair feels great and will stay soft and moisturized for a couple days so I don't have to remoisturize right away. Two to three drops suffices per section for me. A little goes a long way, esp with fine, medium to low density hair.

    I love my oils too (and just not for hair)! I just tried cold pressed macadamia nut oil on damp hair and I am in love. It feels softer and drying time was significantly shorter. Many people do like JBCO for various reasons but I think I will try pure castor oil instead if I ever get around to it. I hope I get the same results you are getting. Do you have experience with any other oils?
