    Default Leave in conditioner recommendations?

    I have been using the same leave in conditioner for years, from a company called bee mine. I recently ordered from then (in early March) and never received my order. I tried today to contact the company, and it seems they have completely shut down, their website no longer works and my attempt to email their customer service would not go through. In any case, I find myself in need of a new leave in conditioner to utilize! I would love recommendations of stuff you guys use and love. I really like conditioners comprised primarily of all natural ingredients such as oils, shea butter, etc. I'm fine using protein, but would prefer a silicone free conditioner. Thanks for your help everyone!

    Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Strength + Moisture leave in mask.
    It's 95% natural ingredients, silicone, paraben, sulfate, etc. free. Also cruelty free.

    I've used it after my last 4 washes and it's absolutely amazing. Worth the money in my opinion.
    And I'm not a fan of silicone free products, but this stuff does exactly what it claims to do. Just a perfect leave in, at least on my hair.

    I'm fond of using Matrix Biolage Conditioning Balm as a leave-in, it gives me a lot of slip and moisture, and it's cone free. However, it's not very natural, some of the first ingredients are alcohols, but I believe I read somewhere that they're one of the alcohols with larger molecules and so they don't damage hair, are beneficial, etc. Also, it's very very thick which I like.

    Garnier Whole Blends legendary olive leave in is good. It has olive leaf extract in it and some other good ingredients. No silicone. If you have a Walmart where you are, they have it .Dollar General also has it.
    I know Shea Moisture has some leave ins. Or if nothing else , you can Google it and it will give you suggestions.
    If you do the CG method they have a treasure trove of videos and information on YouTube and other places.
    This forum's a great place to start too , these ladies and gentlemen know their stuff!

    R&B from Lush. Quite expensive, but for me it lasts 6-9 months (depends on the frequency of washes).

    The Shea Moisture JBCO (Jamaican black castor oil) leave-in. Comes in a tub but is quite runny, so you have to be careful with it. It is super moisturizing, so you don't need much of it. I use about a coinsize for my lenght, spread through palms & scrunched in. It is more than enough!

    This is the one I use, I only spray it on the lengths though. I try not to put anything on the roots other than shampoo.

    I would recommend Isoplus Leave-In Conditioner. I use it after every wash, and it's amazing.
