You might mistake this leave-in conditioner for a deep conditioner because of its extra thick consistency, but Cantu Argan Oil Leave-in Conditioning Repair Cream ($5 at drugstores) is a second-day hair savior. You can use this on wet and dry hair, but for me, it works best for moisturizing old curls. Applying this product to dry hair every night before twisting keeps my kinky hair detangled and hydrated for days (a full week, in fact). But even though it seems too thick for daily use, it doesn't leave my hair greasy. The argan oil makes it much lighter than the original Cantu shea butter leave-in, making it ideal for women with thinner hair or waves. This is one leave-in conditioner I'm ready to commit to, and I'm not planning to cheat anytime soon.
