    I have low porosity, medium density, 3b hair that (when dry) goes to about my elbow.

    I like to use Shea Moisture's Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie as a mix between a leave-in conditioner and a styler. It moisturizes my hair really well, and because of that it helps my curls cluster together. I diffuse my hair with a blow dryer on a low setting and my curls are soft and not crunchy. Hope this helps!

    I LOVE anything by Sevi. I currently use the Argan Babassu Lotion as a leave in or the Pumpkin Seed Conditioner. Both are amazing. I pair them with the Argan Babassu Styling Serum which is also VERY moisturizing. You only need to use a tiny bit. This company uses very nice ingredients. Definitely worth a try. Hope this helps.

    I use Alba Botanica Fragrance-Free Leave-In Conditioner. It has a creamy texture, and good slip. A little goes a long way. Hth! :smile:

    My 2 favorites that I have been using for years are Beauty Without Cruelty's LI, or KCKT. I alternate days of use depending on weather I am CO-washing or just wetting my hair. I find KCKT to be a lighter product than the BWC.

    Pretty much all of the leave ins from Shea Moisture. They're amazing and I honestly haven't had a single product I disliked

    My latest fave would definitely have to be SM Strengthen Grow and Restore JBCO Leave In Conditioner. It has a light smell (smells like vanilla and something else that I simply can't put my finger on), doesn't build up in my hair, and you definitely happen to get a lot for your money with this product. It is something that I can now get on the ground, which is a big plus for me.

    I recently stumbled across andalou naturals leave in, which seems ideal for fine hair. Protein as one of the first few ingredients, along with panthenol, aloe, etc. I tried a bit yesterday diluted with water on 2nd day hair to combat frizz, but very lightly since my hair greases up easily. My hair seemed to hold up to it well though I only put on just a touch.

    Super baby fine hair, low porosity
    Shampoos: SM Fruit Fusion (mostly), Avalon lemon (to clarify). Occasional aloe vera and glycerin to wash.
    Stylers: Intelligent Nutrients Perfect Hold Hairspray
    Treatments: Catnip tea, IA girl's PT, Fermented Rice Water, Catnip Tea, Amla tea, Irish Moss, SS PT

    The Jamaican black castor oil LI is really nice. That's my favorite at the moment. Very watery texture so it's easy to distribute and a good refresher.

    Curl and style milk pairs well with the curl enhancing smoothie.

    Yucca Plantain strengthening milk is good for volume too.

    And of course all of the rinse out conditioners work as good leave ins too.
