I'm looking for a leave-in conditioner that won't break my wallet. I love to use "healthy sexy hair" soy tri-wheat leave in conditioner, but at $17+ for 8.5 oz isn't economically feasible for me right now. I like it because it softens my hair so I can get a brush thru it, and it mists on when sprayed, and it doesn't weigh down my hair. I've tried a few drugstore brands, but the spray is heavy and concentrated, it doesn't "mist" for a light and even distribution, and is a bit heavy. I tried pouring the drugstore brand into the "healthy sexy hair" bottle, but it's still a heavy spray, so it's not the bottle.

Any recommendations for a conditioner that "mists" on, and isn't heavy? Something under $10 I can try? I need a leave-in to save me time in the morning.

I know you asked about a spray leave-in, but have you ever tried Giovanni cream leave-in?

It's super light and cheap (compared to salon brands)...approximately $8.00 for a bottle and it'll last forever. Just a touch does wonders for my hair. Look for it in health food stores, or the natural product section at Walmart with brands like Burt's Bees, etc. It's also available in some grocery stores.

I've never heard of a cream leave-in, but I'll try it! Thanks!

Giovanni Direct leave-in is a lightweight lotion. If it is too heavy, you can dilute it with water and put it in a spray bottle.

Is it just me or is leave in spray conditioner products getting harder and harder to find?

Some I tried :
Normal Tresemme Split Remedy Leave In Conditioner Spray Ulta.com - Cosmetics, Fragrance, Salon and Beauty Gifts

That was ok. You have to rinse out the spray head regualrly and comb it through. Too much and its gets crunchy. Three sprays cover me. (short or medium length) I can't use it every day. Was kinda disappointed.

My favorite when I can find it...grrr on that

____________________________________________

Reviva Labs Facial Spray Rosewater -- 8 fl oz - Vitacost

SUPER light. I would not say it works as a detangler but it does soften the hair.
I like to use it as a mid day refresher spray/conditioner to combat dry AC air.

Giovanni Cosmetics | Eco ChicĀ® Hair Care - Vitapro Fusion PROTECTIVE MOISTURE

Another giovanni product. Not the cheapest but its really nice and the spray is very good on it. At least it was on last purchase. Not heavy at all.

________________________________________________

The cream I use:
Generic Value Products - GVP Smoothing Ultimate Styling Creme: Compare to Matrix Sleek Look

I always check out GVP products whenever I am looking for something that won't break the wallet.
One of the spray conditioners are used lightly and then I put this over the conditioning spray to help with frizz and control. It stays soft and movable but doesn't keep my naturally curly hair strait. Just stays wavy and not a frizz ball or dry. I rub it on my palms like lotion and swipe the top layer of hair and the ends.

Silk Elements - Silk Elements Megasilk Moisture Treatment 16 oz.
That stuff is fantastic. Its a rinse out but it leaves my hair so soft I can usually skip the leave in. They sell small packets so you don't have to commit to a big bottle before trying it.
I have naturally curly hair and it works great despite it being marketed for ethnic hair. The shine you get from this product without it being greasy is amazing.

The Tresemme is one I tried and really hated. It's very heavy, and the spray in more of a direct stream and not a mist that'll pretty much cover most of your head in one pump, which is basically what I'm looking for. I did try diluting it, but I still got same heavy spray/stream.

My problem is that I hate silicones. I always have, waaayyy before this "anti-silicone/anti-sulfate" trend.

My hair is fine, yet wavy. I like some definition, but not silicone slick and not mousse/gel crunch. The Giovanni leave-in does the trick for me. I bought it when I could no longer afford salon brands. 'Took a look at the ingredients and thought, "Why not?" Been using it ever since.

I'm not as wild about their other products though. 'Haven't tried the Protective Moisture mentioned above.

Aussie has a spray leave-in conditioner, it's cheap enough that you might want to try it. I've used it and Infusium (but that's liquid in a bottle, spray-in is much easier and neater

So do any of these sprays actually spay out as a wide, light mist? The Tresemme and Aveeno ones I've tried (and still using, ugh) spray out a bit heavy and cover a narrow area, therefore, I have to spray several times on each side of my head, and the back. With the Healthy Sexy Hair brand, I only need to spray 3 times, once on each side, and the back, and it's a VERY LIGHT WIDE MIST. That's mainly what I'm looking for.
