Leave In Conditioners

TLHL Model: Blondie

Leave In Conditioners are conditioners that are left in the hair, rather than being rinsed out. They are not serums or anti-frizz lotions, but truly fall under the conditioner category. If you've tried any of these leave in conditioners or have tried new ones you'd like to see listed, we would like to have your review included!

African Royale Daily Doctor

All of the leave in's I've tried has left a bunch of white little flake looking things in my hair. Even this one. It just made my hair feel really, really, yucky. It was like I hadn't done anything with it for a looooooong time and all kinds of stuff had gotten in it. It was sticky, hard feeling as if I had used a lot of hair spray and all kinds of buildup. I wish I could find a good leave-in without "cones" that I can actually use without it leaving all that white stuff and everything else on my hair.


ALL WAYS Natural Instant Oil Moisturizer Leave-In Conditioner

I found this leave-in in the ethnic section. I was just quickly walking by when I saw it. It said, "ALL WAYS Natural", and then Instant Oil Moisturizer Leave-In Conditioner. Enriched with Vitamin E and Extracts of Jojoba Oil and Aloe Vera.

I did a quick scan of the ingredients and it seemed pretty good so I took it and checked out. One thing I am interested in is at the end of the ingredients listing it says, "and other ingredients." What other ingredients? I didn't know they could do that.

There are some non-natural ingredients, but I gave it a try and it is very lotion like. It's like a rich lotion. The scent is bland, like basic, plain lotion, before they started making them smell like fruit and all things good! I think adding some essential oils will help.

It seems to absorb very well into my hair, and even when I add more than I think I should have, I don't end up with greasy ends. I have only been applying it to the length (about the ears down).

So far so good. This is the only time I've ever seen this at a Wal-Mart though. It is manufactured by: Colomer USA
P.O. Box 37557
Jacksonville, FL. 32236

It has a money back guarantee if you send the unused portion and your receipt back to them.

It cost around $3.00 for 12 ounces.

Note about above review:

Colomer is also the manufacturer of that wonderful "Creme of Nature Shampoo" you've used and recommended (and what a great product it is!).

I believe Colomer may be owned by Revlon. When I was doing some research online on "Creme of Nature Shampoo" which is in the ethnic hair care section, I read that Revlon was perceived to be "a big white company" so Revlon decided to take their name off the "Creme of Nature" so it wouldn't have a negative impact on sales to the ethnic markets. Sorry I don't know all the details surrounding this but I thought it was interesting. Many smaller companies are owned by large companies like Revlon, L'Oreal, and Clairol and this isn't identified on the products you consumers don't know it.

And about products labeled with "and other ingredients", that is actually proper labeling allowed by FDA regulations when the amount of the ingredients is negligible, even less than 1% though I'm not sure of the exact amount.

Hair care product ingredients are listed in descending order with the first ingredient usually being water, the next 2 to 8 ingredients representing about 8 to 2 percent of the formulation, and the final ingredients such as fragrance and preservatives being less than 1% and allowed to be listed randomly. At the very end of the list the negligible amounts can be stated as "and other ingredients".

Bed Head Ego Boost Split End Mender & Leave-in Conditioner

Bed Head Ego Boost Split End Mender & Leave-in Conditioner. I don't know how this one works, but it has very light silicone in it and it really helps smooth the hair and make it shiny. I've used this for years.

Clairol Renewal 5X Leave In treatment

This is a great strengthening leave in. I don't know how it works but it does. It makes the hair behave better and protects against heat damage and combing.

Effective Care Treatment

I tried using this as a leave in but it had too much protein in it for me. It's good for a deep conditoner and it's recomended to use a couple times a week with your daily conditioner. This is a good product to cocktail with other products. Just remember it's got a good bit of protein and dont use too much of any product. A little of this line goes a very long way.


Reconstuction Treatment

This can get heavy if used too much, like everyday. It tends to feel a little soapy if you rub your hands togeather. Doesn't bother me though. I have been using it for 2 years as a deep condtioner. This is my main deep conditioner.





















Thermasilk Spray On Leave In

This product contains cones, but leaves my hair soft and silky. Whether I heat-style or not, It works. I use CWC, and I spray it on after the last C. It also helps tame frizz in my slightly wavy hair. I definitely recommend it if your hair likes silicone.

I've used it too...and I think it works great... at least for my hair and especially when blowfrying it.


I have used (and liked) this, too.... and Suave USED to make a copycat one, but they quit (I called and chewed them out for weenie-ing out on it, because it was actually BETTER than the Thermasilk real-deal, plus it was about HALF the price!) When my hair is tangly, I will grab this stuff and dampen my hair and then spritz the Thermasilk Leave-In on, and it takes care of the tanglies. Great stuff.
