When you use a leave in conditioner do you use it underneath hair products such as mousse or gel or over them?? I cant figure it out! Another question. What leave in does the best job? I had a perm about a month ago and WOW is it curly!!

Let's see, my hair's straight but wavy around the hairline, hip length, and I prefer to use a creamy leave-in right after I've washed/conditioned, and towel blotted my hair. My favorite is Kiehl's leave in with coconut and panthenol. I massage a dab of it into my wet hair before I comb through and let air dry. It's lubricating yet doesn't leave a residue when it dries. (1-800-kiehls-1 for a catalog and samples if you can't find it locally.) I also liked ABBA's nourishing. I hear raves for Bumble & Bumble's too, which I think will be my next purchase.

I'm guessing it would make more sense to use the leave-in before the styling products, but you just gotta discover what works best for your head.

Thanks Soka!

I will have to try Kiehls and maybe Bumble & Bumble! Maybe ABBA is not agreeing with me. My hair has been feeling like straw after a week of using it!

Hi,

Aveda Elixir is a good leave in as well.

Also, the Artec Kiwi spray-in detangler/conditioner is nice. It doesn't weigh your hair down.

Hi...

I've been using the Elixir for about 2 weeks....I like it... It's thick...and a bit sticky, so I usually just use that on damp hair (don't use too much of it either...you'll look like you dunked your head in a bucket o' grease)...then blow dry it...and then i use the teeniest amount of gel on dry hair to get the hold I need. As for the smell....well, honestly - it smells like ass. It's not gonna make you gag or anything, but I think they could have done a better job in the scent department.

But that's just my $0.02 worth....

I am not sure if Elixir had silicones, if it does, probably only a small amount. I have been experimenting with Abba Nourishing Leave-in. I think I like Aveda better. It just seems to protect my hair better. I also use Artec Kiwi detangler/leave in-but use that more for just a detangler.

I do like the smell of Artec products better than some of the Aveda products. I do not, however; think Elixir smells like "ass", but I would not use something that I thought smelled like that on my hair.

Just my opinion.

Regards,
Clare

Joico's Intergrity is an excellent leave-in conditioner. You'll see results quickly if used properly. It will keep your culy mane from splitz ends. To apply Intergrity comes in a spray form, after shampooing and conditioner apply Intergrity, Use your regular styling products and style as normal. I hope this helps...

Hi there! I always apply the leave in before anything else; otherwise it wouldn't penetrate nearly as effectively (imho). My latest combination for a leave in has been Aubrey swimmer's conditioner (smells sooo lovely) mixed 50/50 with distilled water and a couple drops of jojoba oil; mixed in my palms and combed thru the length (never need it around the scalp) while it's still damp (it's a little below mid back right now). After my hair dries I brush with a boar bristle brush and wow-the shine! It really helps to keep my hair healthy looking when worn down (it's basically straight).
