Just wondering what everyone's favorite leave-in conditioners are... I'm trying to find one that is organic and pretty much all natural, so bonus points if you can suggest one!!:)

I really love Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal shine serum, it makes my hair super soft and manageable, and one bottle lasts me months, but it's not organic or all natural, so I'm not sure if this is much help.

My favorite leave-in is Nightblooming's Winter Panacea blend. I haven't used any other products designed to be used as a leave in, so for the past couple of years I've stuck with normal conditioner and oils. I still have one particular section of hair that is damaged and is so dry that nothing seems to moisturize it except for the Panacea. It doesn't make the dryness go away completely, but it has done a better job than coconut oil, jojoba oil, and the regular conditioners I've used. Plus, it smells really good. :D

I'm loving the Panacea as well. I think next batch, I'll ask her to send me some EO free, but the traditional works well in my hair.

I like toadstool soap's jojoba leave in in blue lilac. :D

Another vote for Nightblooming's Panacea (I use the summer blend). My ends tend to be a little dry from highlights and past heat damage. Nothing has made as much of a difference as the panacea, my hair has become more soft and shiny since I've started using it. I'm in love with the stuff.

I'm liking GF sleek & shine intensely smooth so far, but my hair likes cones.. it has apricot and argan oil in it, though. Works for me. :)

I'll throw my vote in for Nightblooming's Panacea. I use the vegan blend.
Fox's Shea Butter recipe is also really great, IMO, but I think that's based on how your hair likes shea butter.

I can only assume that you meant "such". LOL I hope you like it or I'll feel bad!

I love Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose; it's not specifically a leave-in conditioner, but that's how I use it. I can't get away from it, I do try other things but always come back to it. I guess it's my Holy Grail hair product.

LOL still laughing about the misspelled word! So funny. For a light moisurizer that fights friz and static I use aloe vera gel. Just make sure it is free of all alcohol. I have fine thin hair so I'm afraid to use any leave-ins because it doesn't take much to make my hair look greasy.

My hair loves Garnier Fructis sleek & shine intensely smooth leave in! (:

I just use Garnier Fructis triple nutrition as my leave in. It's not meant for that, but still works great.

I think I'm gonna have to order some Pancea after reading all these other responses! I bought some for my giftee in the winter gift swap, but never got myself any. :)

I like my homemade leave-in. Some of the ingredients in it are: shea butter, rooibos infused coconut oil, aloe vera juice and whatever BPAL I feel like wearing that day...I've become quite obsessed with my BPAL's as of lately :bigeyes:.

Alba leave in by alba botanica. They're organic and it's cone free. It has coconut oil in it too :) I like it! And it's under $10 :)

I'm curious about Khadija's from Henna Sooq "Sweet mimosa butter"... Has anyone tried it ?

Do you think waxes would require clarifying often ?

Giovanni's Direct Leave-In Conditioner is my absolute favorite, after spending years in search of the perfect one. It is a daily ritual! My curls become ringlets!

I love R&B from Lush, it's quite heavy (and expensive!) though, I only use a teeny tiny bit! It smells divine <3

I used to use it, but found it wasn't worth the money. I also don't want to support Lush in anyways, since they lie about being Green, etc. :( But yes, R&B did smell good!

Yeah it's really expensive, I decided it was worth the money (tried a sample first) because it's impossible to find good stuff without cones here!
I don't think any of my products are green to be honest, so them not being green isn't a big problem for me ;) But I didn't know they lie about it, is there an article or something about it? I'm just curious! :)

I don't think there's an article around here about it- but you'll probably be able to find one if you Google it. Or just take a look at some of their ingredients in their products. They really aren't Eco friendly, and they rely heavily on chemicals, some of which are really not good for anyone's body.
I'm really into green products, so I'd rather pay more money for something I know is green, then have something that isn't.:p

I use GF Sleek n Shine leave-in. I've never used a leave-in in the past, so I really don't have much experience. GF seems to be working just fine, though!:)
