Silicon-free leave-in conditioner?

Any suggestions? I love the Naked range and when they stopped producing I stock-piled madly. But I'm almost out of my leave-in conditioner stock and need something else. Something fairly simple would be best.

'Similar', not 'simple'!

Bumping this, as I'm after the same....

There's another thread in style and beauty all about frizz taming, (frizz is in the title somewhere!) - and there's loads of products listed on there! (I know as I spent far too much time in boots today after reading it!)

Thanks, Shizer. Will have a look.

I use the Milk Shake leave in conditioner and it's lovely. It cheap but a bottle lasts for months.

Sorry not that cheap!

I think Lanza and Redken may be, both expensive but worth the money. I buy in bulk from look fantastic as there are normally deals on

John Masters Neroli leave in conditioner is great for my fine hair. It's expensive but you need a tiny bit. The bottle lasts me 6 months.

I noticed a range in Superdrug that looked like a revamped Naked - they have a leave in conditioner (silicone free) - might be worth comparing the ingredients to see if it is actually the same thing? This is the one.

Bumble and Bumble do a nice one. Not cheap tho!

This one is quite good.

I know it's not technically a leave in, but I was advised by my hairdresser to use it as a shampoo, rinse it out but not completely so the water coming out of your hair is still a bit milky. Highly recommend it.

Years ago I went to a trichologist and he said that any conditioner can be used as a leave-in. Just rub a small amount between your palms and apply where your hair needs it. I've done it for years, I have fine hair and can apply just it on the ends this way. It also saves a load of time faffing in the shower and my hair is shiny and not weighed down.

What's the significance of silicon free?

LittleOyster Fri 06-Jan-17 11:04:48

Thanks for that tip, spankhurst. Will try that later.

Hydrangea, apparently silicone can build up on the hair, creating a barrier that prevents hydration and nutrients from getting inside the strand, and making the hair dull and brittle.

Sorry to disappear - thanks for all the advice. I'm going to try using my normal conditioner as a leave-in for a while and see how it works out. If not great, I'll try some of these suggestions!

I use a tiny bit of olaplex 3 as leave in. Marvellous stuff

I use Nuxe huile prodigieuse, put a bit in my palms, rub hands together and start applying on the ends.
