Direct Leave-In Weightless Moisture Conditioner
This product takes the cry out of combing through my daughter's hair. And I feel comfortable with the ingredients list.

Great Leave in Conditioner!
I can honestly say this is my favorite so far of the natural leave ins I have used. It feels like I dont have anything weighing my hair down, which is a huge plus especially since I have fine hair!

Moisturizing leave in
I've heard the great reviews about this all natural leave in conditioner. After previously using a Giovanni product, I was sold to continue trying other products from this line.
I was looking for a good leave in and the direct leave in exceeded my expectations. I used it when my hair was dry and it was very soft. (I am natural with 4b hair type ) I also used this awesome conditioner after co-washing while my hair was wet. This is the best way to use it! My hair was not only soft but it was well moisturized and had a sparkle to it!
The only aspect I did not like is when I applied Giovanni direct leave in on wet hair it lathered but once my hair dried it was well absorbed and 3 days later I still had moisture. Great price for such a great product.

Great on African American Hair
A little goes a long way & it doesn't clump up with other products! Leaves hair very soft & silky especially after blow drying!

I'm amazed by the positive reviews of this product! When this product arrived, I was amazed that the directions overlooked any info about how much one should use. I have very long, thick, curly hair. I opted to use a quarter size amount for my scalp area and another quarter size amount for the rest of my hair. I followed the rest of the directions exactly. My hair dried feeling crunchy, dirty and disgusting. I had to re-wash it the next morning. YUCK! I looked up the manufacturer's website and noticed there was no contact phone number - only an email address (red flag #1). So I sent them an email asking for amount to use. 2 weeks went by without a response. I sent another email. Ditto. So I guess I will use up the 3 bottles I purchased as a rinse out rather than a leave in. Based on my experience, I simply cannot recommend this product. Perhaps there's something I'm missing, but any manufacturer who can't be bothered to respond, listen up: I can't be bother to buy.

My New Fave Conditioner
I have thick hair that tends to frizz. This conditioner is ideal for my hair. The natural ingredients make my hair look & feel healthy. The consistency applies easily and thoroughly with just a tiny bit. My husband is sensitive to fragrances, and this product is undetectable to him.
It's my new favorite and I plan to stick with it!

Swansons Argan spray leave in is better!
I have thinner hair, and this seemed to be too heavy. I usually use "It's a 10". Then I discovered Swanson's Argan Spray Leave In, and fell in love, for a much better price!!

Love this stuff!
I am newly natural and I've already become a product junky. I have been looking for a leave in conditioner for my hair and I've been hearing rave reviews from other naturals about this stuff and let me tell you I love it! What I love the most is that it is true to the claims of being light weight and it's water based. Will be buying more of this stuff and thank you Swanson for the great price you guys rock!

I was searching through to find a leave-in conditioner to replace the one I'd been using because it was full of toxic chemicals, it didn't smell good, and the company tested on animals. I was impressed with all the great reviews and the price of this one. I was not disappointed. It took a few times to get used to it because my old one was a liquid (like water) and this one is thicker like a lotion. My hair is long, coarse and wavy/curly. This is perfect for styling, softening, and controlling frizz. I will definitely buy this again!

Best Leave in for naturals
This was the absolute best leave in conditioner that I have ever used! I have kinky hair and take a lot of time detangling my hair after washing. This literally cuts my time in half! Awesome product

I have long, rather thin, oily hair. This really gives my hair volume and shine without making it look greasy. I've been using it for about two months and my hair feels much healthier and is easier to manage. And at less than five dollars it fits into the budget quite well. Just make sure not to use too much of it, I have waist length hair and only need about a pea sized dollop.

This makes my long, thick hair soft and manageable.

I heartily recommend this product for its light-weight curl definition and modest "holding" properties. Even more so for its acceptable ingredients. I won't use anything with "cones" in it nor any synthetic ingredients. I love Aubrey Organics ingredients but their leave-ins just don't do much for my hair type---very, very fine & wavy. Yeah...a NIGHTMARE!!! :-(
This condition has been a keeper for me for many, many years and I am happy to see I can add it to my Swanson order for a considerable discount. Very happy! :-)

This is a great leave-in conditioner. I have short natural,dry hair and this product made my hair feel very soft and moisturized. The best part in making my decision was being able to read the ingredients before I purchase this product. Thanks Swanson great price will purchase again.

I have curly hair that is fine in texture and more wavy than curly. When I ever first began to use this product, I found that it weighed my hair down with too much moisture and I didn't like it, but I later started having more luck with it and now LOVE the product. I consider it now an essential every day product. I believe the difference was made in what other products I was also using on my hair. If you use anything else at all that is too moisturizing or will leave any kind of coating on the hair, then I believe this product will be too much for your hair. But if you keep everything else light, it should work great for you. I use a little dab of it everyday in the palm of my hand along with a tiny amount of a product called Pure Shine Spray-It Curly. I mix them in my palm and then distribute throughout my hair and scrunch in thoroughly. It is a fabulous combination. The only thing that will mess this up is if I use a shampoo or conditioner that contains oils or leaves too much moisture coating on my hair.

A Tiny Bit Works A Lot
This gave me great slip and finger detangling, but I used way too much. I must have used about two quarter-sizes worth. I have extremely thick hair, 80's Tina Turner thick, and it was still too much. But it did make detangling easier. It didn't provide enough moisture for me, but considering the coarseness of my hair, it should be plenty for most.

The best leave-in conditioner!!!
I have coarse natural wavy hair that is really hard to manage. I have used tons of other products but this Giovanni's leave-in conditioner is truly the best product. It tames my hair very nicely without making the curls too crispy but nicely wavy. Plus, it is organic, doesn't contain harsh chemicals etc. Swanson has the best price and that's the reason I keep coming back here to purchase this item. More than highly recommended!

I use this leave-in on my daughter's very curly, dry hair. It is the best leave-in I have found for her hair. If I use it after conditioning her hair with Avalon Organics Lavender Nourish Conditioner it is perfect! I have tried many, many products and combination of products for her hair, and most of them are only so-so: they either leave her hair feeling dry or weighed down. This combo keeps the frizz at bay, defines her curls, makes combing much easier, and her hair doesn't feel dry. For days in between washes, I simply spritz with water, apply more leave-in, comb, and scrunch. And since it doesn't take much, a bottle of this leave-in will go a long way! (I have requested the Avalon conditioner, so hopefully Swanson will begin carrying it soon so I don't have to order it elsewhere!)

None Can Compare
Giovanni's Direct Leave-In is the best darn leave-in ever; irregardless your hair type (straight, wavy, curly or kinky), this stuff works...

Excellent use as overnight treatment
I never buy anything without carefully reading the ingredients. This one is too good to be true, BUT using as direction says left my hair a little sticky, USE VERY little. as leave-in.
so used as overnight treatment it worked wonders, very soft healthy shiny flawee hair in 2 application. it is my wish list item now onwards..
