Since the winter, I've been on the prowl for the best leave in and/or leave in combination for my hair. Coming out of the winter, I couldn't find a balance. My hair either (air) dried dry and crunchy or soft and greasy. Once spring hit, you all remember, I started using the Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner (not too long ago) as my leave in. It's a good product but I just was feeling "eh" about it after a while and like there was something out there that could do a little better.
I think I finally found my staple leave in and it's what I moisturize my hair with daily: my Shea Moisture Conditioning Milk. Why didn't I think of this sooner? I don't know but I'm glad that I finally figured it out. I tried it out as leave in on my hair recently and instantly fell in pure adoration with the results. My hair (air) dried super soft, felt really moisturized, and wasn't greasy one bit. I'm sold. I luv when I can get multiple uses out of one product. It makes things simpler and is one less product I have to be concerned with. (As for the rest of my Giovanni Smooth as Silk conditioner, I plan to either use it up as a reg conditioner or I'll give it away to someone. Email me if you're interested. The only thing I'd charge for is to ship it.)
My hair responds so well to this moisturizer. Yay! So yeah, if you have a hair lotion you moisturize your hair with on a frequent basis, try it as a leave in. It may work well for you if you haven't found a leave in conditioner that you care for.
