Leave in condish or not?

I have been CG for about 6 weeks but have only been using VO5 and BRHG. I do not have defined curls and the ends are fuzzy so I ordered CK and CJ deep treatment but I may need a leave in conditioner. Do most of you use a leave in?
I have 3B hair and it is extremely thick.

    My hair is 3b also and not very thick at all, and I do use a leave-in. I stopped using a leave-in when I first when on CG and found that my hair just wasn't looking as good.

    3B that is no longer CG, but still endeavors to have healthy hair by not using sulfates.

    I use a leave in, I just use my reg conditioner. VO5 is not that moisturizing, so you would want to leave some in, that helps me with fuzzy ends.

    Currently: Trying to stop straightening so much. Using Elucence conditioner and whatever works for me.

    I get fuzzy all over without a leave-in! Right now I'm using Abba Nourishing leave-in and sometimes I use Suave Coconut cond. as a leave-in. And I use one every day, no matter what sort of rinse out I use.

    My hair doesn't normally respond well to leave-ins, but lots of the women here use one.

    Thank you for the help. I will try a leave in and let you know how it works.

    Let us know! I was going to add that if I don't use a leave-in (usually just a pea-size drop of my normal condish) under my BRHG, I get less defined curls and even a bit of frizz sometimes. Curls are also crunchy and I can't get the crunch to scrunch out. Found that out one day when I was in a hurry and forgot to do the leave-in :? HTH

    I normally don't use a leave-in, either, and I usually rinse the majority of my conditioner out.

    I don't know why I don't leave in my conditioner. I leave in coconut oil. I think it's because I read on a long hair site that she believes the only thing after washing that the hair needs is oil. So I just naturally rinse out my conditioner.

    I have been having some bad hair days so I tried something different - honey! i put a few drops in my conditioner and then a drop in my leave in which is Jessicurls [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Aloeba-Daily-Conditioner-p-104.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-aloeba-daily-conditioner]aloeba[/buylink]. Then I didn't use any gel, just boots curl creme and I'm having the best hair day that I've had in a long time. I think the gel was really weighing down my hair.

    So yay for honey in my leave in!

    I found that a leave in - even a tiny bit, makes a big difference to lessen the scrunchiness as well.
