leave-in conditioner with control?

RandibethRandibeth Registered Users Posts: 9
I border between 3a and 3b, my hair is super manageable and loves my Paul Mitchell Leave-In conditioner as JUST a styling product. I put it in wet and let it air dry and I have natural, soft curls. I use nothing else. I would love for this to have just a tad bit more control/hold though. is there such a product? I did use the PM Twirl Around but found it was TOO much control/hold in my hair. Maybe there is just a creme that does what I am looking for?

    Briogeo Leave In and defining Creme has just a bit of hold. I really like it even though I need a bit of gel over. I'm a weak wavy. Gel is our life.

    My favorite is VMM, sadly discontinued. Biosilk Rock Hard Gel is closest next. I'm really still always looking for the "perfect" gel.

    Do you follow the Curly Girl method? Before I learned about CG I used Bed Head Ego Boost leave-in and that was it. I got good hold, but it's got some non-CG-friendly ingredients.

    Cjcccc lite acts as a leave in with some hold for me, it has both conditioning ingredients and holding agents.

    @roonilwazlib - I don't follow the CG method YET so I might have to check that out

    cj cccc or cj honey butta - i actually use either of these with a little leave in conditioner first, then a little of one of these. in spite of the glycerin, they are both great in low dews. i will also use them in mid and high dew points. in the winter, when dew points are very low, i use cj cccc every wash day -- fabulous 2nd and even 3rd day hair with it.
    i rarely use a gel with these.

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(
