Top 3 Leave In Conditioners/Moisturizers for Natural Kinky Curly Hair

I have 3 different products that I use as Leave In Conditioners/Moisturizers. I rotate them or use them as a combo depending on what style I’m trying to achieve, what the weather is like or how my hair feels.

Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie

I’ve been using this for a LONG time. I always find my way back to the Curl Enhancing Smoothie. The petty in me nearly stopped using it after that Shea Moisture campaign lol but I had to do what was best for my hair and keep it as a part of my regimen! I just love it. Thick creamy consistency, gorgeous scent. I use this as a Leave in on it’s own or on top of another one of the products listed below for added moisture. The Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie works well as a daily moisturizer on my hair. It’s ideal for when I am wearing my hair in a wash and go or a twist out- it works well for my hair whatever the weather. It really defines the curl pattern but beware of that shrinkage!

Giovanni Direct Leave In Weightless Moisture Conditioner

As the name suggests this is a leave in conditioner, and that’s exactly how I use it. This product works well for when I am trying to achieve a stretched look or for heat styling. I’m more likely to use this product in the winter. I rarely use the Giovanni Direct Leave In as a moisturizer. It works well with both the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and the Camille Rose Naturals Aloe Butter Gel. The Giovanni Direct Leave In Conditioner has a smooth light consistency. Although I am pretty heavy handed with hair product application- a little goes a long way. Out of the three products mentioned the scent is the least appealing- it’s hard to explain, it isn’t horrible but it isn’t nice either lol.

 

Camille Rose Naturals Aloe Butter Gel

I’ve seen a lot of naturals going on about the Camille Rose Naturals Curl Maker Gel but I wasn’t ready to spend that much on a gel 🙂 so I opted for something cheaper. I rarely try new products now, so I was glad that this worked well on my hair. The Camille Rose Naturals Aloe Butter Gel makes my curls look super defined but without the shrinkage. It has a creamy light consistency- a little goes a long way but I always end up being heavy handed with this product lol. I’ve never used this as a leave in conditioner but I love to use it as a moisturizer and for my twist outs. I swear this product has taken my twist outs to another level! They last longer and have less shrinkage when I use this product.  The Camille Rose Naturals Aloe Whipped Butter Gel works well with both my Giovanni Direct Leave In and the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie.

Have you tried any of these products? What did you think of them?
