Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deeper Moisture Conditioner
I was a little skeptical about using this conditioner :) I've heard soo many wonderful things about the Giovanni direct leave in that I wasn't sure how this would measure up. But after searching high and low for the leave in lol, I decided to give the Smooth as Silk a try. After all, my hair tends to thrive on using regular conditioners as leave ins as long as there are no nasty ingredients in it lol. I have been nothing but incredibly shocked by the performance of this conditioner! I have NEVER used a conditioner in my hair, relaxed or natural, quite like this one! This conditioner leaves my hair crazy soft! I've even asked my husband many times to feel my hair because it was sooo soft LOL! When twisting my hair the first time using this, it was as though I had no SSK's lol. Usually, I can feel them and either snip them or try to just ignore them because they come back no matter what lol. But this time???! I felt only 1 SSK that I had to snip lol. ( Now I know there are others lol, but I didn't feel them!) It kinda reminds me of the results of an apple cider vinegar rinse...super smooth and silky feeling hair. I love this!
Here are pictures I took during my "experimental phase" with Giovanni Smooth As Silk Deeper Moisture Conditioner. All pics are my hair with only using olive oil, avocado butter and Giovanni. No gel :D
Note: I have noticed that the ingredients have changed several times with this conditioner. Some have the protein higher in the ingredients list. The one I am using does not. Be sure to check the labels :)

Check out my Shea Moisture blog post for more details :)
Tresemme Naturals (small recap)
I've noticed on some websites, that the ingredients are listed with this product containing isopropyl alcohol... the bottle I have does not have that ingredient in it so I'm not sure if there has been an ingredient change or not. Just be sure to check the labels :)
So it looks like these three products are going to be rotated in my regimen depending on the hairstyle I want to achieve lol. When I want high shine and high moisture, I'll reach for the Giovanni (which will be most of the time lol) When I want a lot of fluff to my fro, Shea Moisture is it! Last, when I want my twistouts to have a some hold, then I'll reach for the Tresemme lol. They all work great in different ways and I now have a few options! I'm still going to eventually try the Giovanni Direct Leave in lol.
