I am currently in love with Care Free Curl. I add water (50:50 mix) and it works great!

Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Leave-in. It has amodimethicone in it, but it's really affordable and the best leave-in I've tried so far (and I've tried a lot).

If you are looking for moisture mainly, I would say try Bee Mine Luscious Moisturizer. That stuff is great and I have a LOT of hair and it works so well for me. I can honestly say a little goes a long way with it.
For leave in's, I am still in love with KC Knot Today.

Kinky Curly Knot Today is awesome, and is aloe vera based so it's lighter. Smile

I second that.

I seal with a 50/50 mixture of coconut oil and JBCO (Jamaica black castor oil). Sometimes I use jojoba oil.

Qhemet Biologics burdock root buttercream. If your hair likes shea butter, opt for the Amla cream.

sealing your hair is when you use a oil based product or just oil to keep the moisture from a water based product. so after applying your favorite water based product, use an oil (my favorite is castor oil) or oil based product (my favorite is carols daughter mimosa hair honey) to seal.


my current favorite moisturizer is suaves almond and shea butter conditioner. that stuff is AWESOMEEEE (and cheap hehe) lol

nah, u don't necessarily have to. my hair doesn't like shea so i use a water-based moisturizer that contains lighter oils (burdock root butter cream) to seal after i spritz with water. if your hair is responding well with shea, don't change a thing chica.
