    Hi lovely ladies!!

    I was wondering if you can recommend some products that aren't heavy. I am on a PJ spree but I have learned that heavy products don't sit well with my 2c low porosity hair :) I'm a bit protein sensitive and if Shea is too high on the list it doesn't work great for me (though with rinse out products I can tolerate heavier butters or oils more... For leave in stuff, lighter is better).

    I generally have liked SSI products and just ordered a bunch for the mothers day sale :)

    Any recs are much appreciated :) I love this community and it's helped my hair improve so much!
    Thanks!

    Mielle Organics are totally lightweight.

    And they are having a 30% Mothers Day Sale.

    Even the Almond & Mint Oil is absolutely totally weight-less.

    Oh this is an awesome thread-- I'm 4c but I'm also protein sensitive, and have only recently found shea butter products that my hair can tolerate!

    You already know that SheScentIt Cococream leave in is a great lighter weight leave in. Anabelle's Perfect Blends (APB) leave ins are a great non-glycerin alternative to the SSI.

    I second the SSI suggestions.

    Others you can try are:
    Oyin Juices & Berries
    Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Milk
