Question Leave In Conditioner for Relaxed Hair

Ladies,

I think my hair type is 4b and I am relaxed. I use Affirm and relax every 8 to 10 weeks.

What LeaveIn conditioners are you using for your relaxed hair?

I have the same hair type and similar relaxer schedule. My staples have been Giovanni Direct Leave in (cream) & Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave-In (Spray). I also began using a protein spray which decreased my breakage heavily during the last few weeks of my stretch. I prefer Doo Grow Leave-In Growth Treatment to Aphogee's Keratin & Green Tea. So I always use a protein + moisture.

I just ordered some Bee Mine Deja's Hair Milk because I ran out of the Giovanni Direct Leave-in. I'm trying to use products from ONLY black owned companies. Can't review it yet, but I've heard great things. Good Luck.

I'm using Neutrogena Triple Moisture and sealing with grapeseed oil. This REALLY works for my hair. I moisturize and seal twice a day (most days).

I'm relaxed and like to use Jane Carter's Revitalizing Leave-In with GVP Leave-IN (Redken Extreme Anti Snap) or Elasta QP H2 Leave-In with Optimum Care Anti-Breakage Therapy Leave-In Ultimate Strengthener.

I alternate between Lacio Lacio, Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Split End Mender, and Pureology Instant Repair Leave-In.

I like the Lacio Lacio for when I want to wear my hair with lots of movement and body. It's quite light, but still moisturizes really well.

The Herbal Essences is heavier, so I use it for when I'm not concerned with movement, which is pretty much 99% of the time, because I bun. It also has the advantage of a creamy formula, smelling freaking amazing and being inexpensive.

I use the Pureology when I need to air dry my hair. Normally, my air dried hair is a hot rough mess, but with the Pureology, it actually dries softly and smoothly. The consistency can be strange though...it comes out like a watery gel and it's easy to use too much.

I use the Herbal Essences most often, but I don't have a favorite out of the three...I love them all. Hth.

I have a few that like to use. If I'm rollersetting, I use the Biolage leave in with some Nioxin Elixir. If I'm airdrying, I use the Bee Mine Deja hair milk and argan oil. After I'm 8 weeks post, I'll use the redken anti snap instead of the biolage.

I am 4b relaxed and I also use Affirm. I relax every 3-4 months. I use Homocrin Natural Nourishing Conditioner For Dry and Brittle Hair. It's pretty expensive, but a little goes a long way. One bottle lasts me a little over 6 months. It works great for all my relaxed friends, regardless of hair type and my mom when she was natural.

Default Re: Leave In Conditioner for Relaxed Hair

I am relaxed 4ab

I use:
Jessicurl Aloeba or a spritz that consists of distilled water and aloe vera juice when bunning

I love Jessicurl very much it is heavy enough that I dont need to moisturize everyday for now.

When wearing a straight style I apply some Qhemet Biologics amla and olive to the ends and edges.

ETA: since I am moving away from Bonestraight hair my hair is going to be prone to losing its sleek look when worn out. I may moisturize with the qhemet and seal with a cone serum every few days or so. I have Sabino and Fantasia IC here I will try them out and see how they fair. I might also look into this Lacio Lacio everyone keeps talking about to see what the big hoopla is about LOL.
That is all

Lacio Lacio is the bomb! It's the only leave-in I've used in the past year.

I'm 4B (for Brillo LOL) relaxed, thin hair and use Hawaiian Silky 14-N-1, a thick, creamy leave-in/moisturizer combo. Tonight after shampooing and conditioning with Trader Joe's Nourish Spa, I wet bunned using HS14. I decided to seal with jojoba tonight (usually don't use oils) and my hair at 90% dry is shiny and feels like silk. NG feels really soft, too - softer than when I've used HS14 alone so the jojoba must be doing its job. I stopped oils several months ago cuz it seemed like my hair didn't like them (dry, fly-away hair), and started using serums like IC Polisher for shine, but I want to get off cones. The HS14/jojoba combo seems like a winner!

Silicon Mix leave-in....I use that to air dry.

HE LTR or Neutrogena Triple Moisture....I prefer Long Term Relationship but I am finding it harder and harder to find. I use them as a leave-in/moisturizer.

Garnier Fructis for colored hair...even though I've never colored.
Curls Milkshake lotion works excellent for my airdrying lately (even though I'm relaxed.)

I can't find the Long Term Relationship anywhere around where I live. I think I will start with trying the Lacio Lacio and the LTR. I might order the LTR leave in from Drugstore.com
