:huh: Can I use a regular conditioner as a leave in conditioner? or will it be damaging to my hair because it is meant to be rinsed out? Thanks!

If you choose to use it as a leave in you should dilute it with water.

you can use a thin regular conditioner as a leave in. i use suave biobasics and i add jojoba oil... works wonders :afro:

I would be careful not to end up with build up. Leave in's and regular conditioners are made differently for a purpose

I am REALLY feeling Giovanni Direct Leave-In, better than Aveda Elixir. I saw it online for like $4.50 for 8oz. In the store I paid $7.99 for the same size.

Sauve Awapuhi is a excellent leave-in. Its a very light formula and it smell great. And its cheap at about 2.00$ a bottle.

I definitely agree with this. I love Aveda's Elixir - a little goes a long way.

I've had really good luck using Aveda Sap Moss Conditioner as a leave in. The Elixer is also really good (as OP's have mentioned) but it's a little thin for my hair.

What is the technique to put a leave in conditioner in your hair without flattening the curls? Once I put it in my hair I end up rinsing it out because I flattened or partially "matted" my hair trying to put it in.

When my hair is soaking wet, I shake my hair (like a wet dog) after applying any products. That provides me with maximum volume and prevents "mat head." Then I try not to touch my hair again after that (other than to add a hair accessory if desired).
