    1. Hey Ganga, any of the silicone-free conditioners can be used as a leave-in conditioner. Leave in conditioners are basically watered down version of usual rinse-off conditioners. You can just rub a little conditioner between your hands and apply evenly on wet hair and squeeze out the excess water instead of rinsing it off. That would work as a leave-in conditioner. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hi Divya, thank fr yr suggestion. After applying conditioner, can I apply a gel also ? Pls share SM more tips to get more define and bouncy curls. I have frizzy hair

        1. Yes dear, you can apply the gel over the conditioner… It will help in controlling the frizz and keeping hair moisturized us well defined.

          Sure I will more tips for defining curls soon… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Pooja…I have never really come across Enliven Hair gel. So never looked at the ingredients. Not sure if it is CG. And neither can I find its ingredients list anywhere online. ๐Ÿ™

    1. Almost all hair serum contains Silicones, Pallavi.. So if you are going sulfate and silicone free, I won’t recommend using serums. Better to look for a hair gel without silicones and alcohols.

  1. Hey Silicone free n Alcohol free Hair Conditioner that Work?!have tried a few New FB page Brands but They are Not really working for Softening /Smoothing of Hair…

  2. Divya, can you tell me the difference between these 3 products.
    Cantu Curl Activator Cream for Natural Hair
    Cantu Creamy hair Lotion for Natural Hair
    Cantu Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream

    1. Hey Priya.

      I have a post long pending on the creamy hiar lotion. It will be up soon.

      The Cantu leave in had dimethicone in it which is silicone and doesn’t fit in CG regimen. Do you follow CG?

      1. Trying to. Curlin cream: Just waiting to finish the BBlunt Pink one and ordered for Cantu, waiting eagerly for it ; Shampoo and Condtioner: Already using Giovanni Silky smooth. There’s just a little shampoo left and no branch of H&G in chennai has it. Amazon is crazily/erratically priced. Gel: SetWet Blue (work well but hair feels a little dry, waiting for it get over, meanwhile looking for better alternatives)

        1. I find the Arata gel too as a good one(I am still testing, though)!! Set wet for me feels a bit dry by day 2. Using a heavier conditioner or a curl cream might help!!

  3. My hair type is 2b fine hair..which conditioner should i use which doesn’t weigh down my hair..??
    Are leave in conditioner necessary??
    What should i use to tame frizz and fly aways??
    Can i use matrix biolage ultrahydrasource hydrating masque as a conditioner??

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hey Swati!!

      You can use loreal smooth intense conditioner. Can use the same conditioner as a leave-in too.
      To tame frizz and fly aways, add a gel to your routine.

      You can totally use the matrix biolage ultrahydrasource hydrating masque as a conditioner!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Would love to hear from you. Please do leave a comment.
