    I recently got some KBB Hair Nectar, and it makes a wonderful leave-in. I've also tried Curl Junkie Curl Rehab as a leave-in (even though it's meant as a DT) with great results. A good drugstore leave-in is the Yes To Cucumbers Leave-In, and of course, the Giovanni Direct. Although, the Giovanni does have protein if you're protein-sensitive.
    Pacific Northwest 3a/3b, medium all across the board, possibly porous.

    Low-Poo: Trader Joe's Refresh
    Co-wash: V05 Tea Therapy Chamomile, Giovanni TTTT
    Rinse-out: GVP Conditioning Balm, Yes to Tomatoes, EO Chamomile & Honey
    Leave-in: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab, Sonoma Soap Company First Crush
    Deep Treatment: Jessicurl WDT
    Gels: BRHG, Biotera
    Stylers/Mousses: Komaza Coconut Pudding, Curls Goddess Glaze

    Hm. When I found out that Ouidad uses cones and sulfates in her products, I was disappointed. Isn't she supposed to be the Queen of Curls? That's kind of hypocritical, if you ask me...
