I keep trying products that gave me moisture no slip or slip no moisture. Soultanicals gave me amazing slip got the knots shed hair out when it dried it was stiff, dry and felt coated!! Miss jessies baby butter cream made my hair super soft no slip! Soul tanicals kink drink and other hair mist gave me slip knot sauce gave me slip but no moisture. I dont know if is the aloe vera because I put raw aloe vera on my hair mix with water got lots of white flakes and it was stiff dried. I need a good hair mist and leave in detangler. I need slip and soft moisturize hair!

    I feel your pain. Trial and error is no fun. I suggest you compare the ingredients to try to see what is causing the problems. As far as slip, I only look for that in a conditioner because if i use a styler the my hair will already be detangled by the time I use it. Also for me it takes a lot of leave in, like tightly curly amount to keep my hair moisturized. And you want to make sure while you are trying all these products you don't have buildup. that can make your hair dry and keep your products from working well because previos product still in your hair. I recently tried Jane Carter Wrap and roll after cowashing and got horrible results. tried after poo bar and much better

    Have you tried vo5 as a rinse out? Its VERY cheap and has great slip for my hair atleast. Also, tress naturals is wonderful and i can leave that in. Has great slip and thats cheap as well. I like shea moisture conditioner. Its moisturizing and has good slip but i have to use alot and keep putting water in my hair so the price isnt worth it for me. Cantu shea butter leave in is good and cheap. Can use it as a leave in or deep treatment. Atleast i do. And lastly suave almond and shea butter conditioner is great as a leave for me. I dont care about ingredients. As long as my hair reacts well to a product then im all for it. Good luck curly!!

    Soultanicals Knot Sauce has a lot of oils high up on the ingredient list which could cause the oily, build up feel but it is a good moisturizer. Oyin Hair Dew works well for me. Maybe you're low porosity? Being low porosity, I stay away from products that are too oily or have heavy butters and focus on moisturizers that have more non oily ingredients.

    I cant lie the slip I get from knot sauce is awesome but not moisturizing at all for me. So far miss jessies baby butter cream and beemine deja hair milk also the bee mine moisturizing daily conditioner makes my hair soft and moisturized but no slip. Tried jessicurl and it did absolutely nothing for my hair lol I used the deep conditioner felt nothing so I add the moisturizer still nothing. I gave herbal essence totally twisted and hello hydration a try had to wash my hair with warm water first and my hair wasn't that tangled. Leave it in for a few minutes gave some slip and moisture but not impressed would not buy again. I remember when my hair was really tangled used the hello hydration and didn't help at all. I hate all of carol's daughter products my hair almost attacked me when I put the hair milk on it.

    The leave-in I've been using is As I Am, it leaves my hair moisturized, has great slip, and smells divine!! It's about 10$ a bottle at Walgreens. So it's pricey. You can also try the Cantu Shea Butter leave-in same slip, moisture, and great smell for a much lower price, around 5$. They've also come with Argan Oil Leave-in and a leave in for natural hair specifically!
