Giovanni conditioners...which are the lightest? most conditioning?

I recently tried Triple Treat and 50/50 and found them both to be very conditioning, despite the bottle saying the TT was a lighter conditioner. There are some other formulations too and I was curious where they all rank in terms of conditioning ability.

I would like to use them as a rinse out, and use a tiny bit as a leave in.


Hair Type - medium to fine texture, high porosity, lots of it, type 2b/3a

    I've used Smooth as Silk, and they say that's the second to their most heavy conditioner, but I found Giovanni TTTT to be way more moisturizing.
    But then again, it had protein in it and I'm sensitive. So if you don't have protein issues, you could try that one.

    Many like the Giovanni Direct Leave in, you could attempt that as a rinse out too if you have fine hair.

    And there's the Root 66 Volumizing Conditioner, that could be good for condish.

    By the way-
    I see you're using the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Hair-Cleansing-Cream-p-103.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-hair-cleansing-cream]Jessicurl hair cleansing cream[/buylink] on your signature... how's your experience with it?
    What's your hair type? Do you leave it in for a couple minutes, or do you find that too drying? I don't want to overdo anything.
    I'm starting to get a somewhat of an oily crown, I've just been using GTTTT alone. But suddenly the ACV rinses aren't having the same effect on my hair... I don't know if it's the 90 degree days, or what.
    I likewise got the Gentle Lather shampoo... so if you have any tips or anything about those two products, that'd be great.
    My hair gets weighed down pretty easily with conditioners.

    Kellygreen - to answer your question about the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Hair-Cleansing-Cream-p-103.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-hair-cleansing-cream]Jessicurl HCC[/buylink], I do like it, but I find I probably use more than is necessary, since it lathers so little, and when I low poo I can't get past not having a bit of lather. So when I use just a little, it's not drying, when I use more to get more lather it is a bit drying. I've never tried leaving it on for a few minutes.

    I will say that [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCurl-LowPoo-p-54.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacurl-lowpoo]Devacurl Low Poo[/buylink] is my new fave, and I'm reaching for that one more these days. It cleans but isn't drying at all on my hair. I even use it on my kids occasionally, but that can get expensive, lol. I also really like the scent too.

    I use the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Gentle-Lather-Shampoo-p-363.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-gentle-lather-shampoo]Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo[/buylink] when I want a very mild clarifying shampoo, that is sulfate free. It is a bit drying to me, but gets the gunk out of my hair without really stripping it like other clarifying shampoos. However, if I've used cones (which I don't really do, but my stylist does) I'll pull out my Suave Clarifying poo.

    HTH a bit. :)

    I started using a bit of the GLS in with the HCC to get a really clean feeling. I'm not too crazy about the GLS on its own, but I love the HCC, and if I feel like I need a little lather and extra cleansing, I'll add the GLS to the HCC.
