Lol, I used to work with this girl who would complain about how brittle her hair was, and she would use regular conditioner in the shower and then not rinse it out and then come to work that way.

To answer the OP, I like Garnier Fructis "Sleek & Shine" Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream. I get it for around $5 at CVS. It smells really good, and it detangles well without being too heavy.

^^^That's not a spray mist, but I also use mists for detangling and scent. I have some from a woman who makes it and sells on etsy, but her shop has been down for quite a while. But I would look there. There are lots of sellers who make products like this, and you can get it custom-scented. I can't say for sure, but it seems like I paid around $9 a bottle for mine.

I use Infusium and Paul Mitchell's leave-in conditioner. But really, I've found that just about any type of conditioner or lotion can be left in if it's diluted enough. Just experiment with what works for you. And it does not have to be expensive. My favorite leave in is Vaseline body lotion. Works really well as a leave in.

If you're not sensitive to coconut:

Shea Moisture Hair Masque in:
Fruit Fusion
Superfruit 10-1

IF you are sensitive to coconut the only one I feel safe using is the Shea Butter. Nearly all other Shea Moisture products have some coconut in them. I can see why - my hair loves it, but it hates my scalp.

I put it on in the shower after cream rinse and rinse it mostly out. Gives me great hold and conditioning without weighing my hair down unduly. The coconut-containing versions worked on my hair better, but terrible consequences to my scalp preclude using them anymore. I also use it on wet hair as an overnight leave-in that I rinse out in the morning. I use a shower cap to contain it.

I have super fine 3c (pretty curly) hair. I used to use watered down infusium but that stopped working at some point - I assume they changed the formulation or my hair changed. This is working better for me.
