Giovanni hair care…bridging the gap between natural and salon-quality.

This is my second review on the same product. My first review mentioned how this is my Holy grail product: which is still true.
But I dont feel as if that doesn’t give enough credit to the Giovanni Brand.
Giovanni is my Holy Grail Brand! The only brand of hair care products that I buy consistently over and over and over again.
Occasionally- I would branch out to other brands- and it is a regretful experience every single time.
Giovanni offers salon quality products at drug store prices. Such high quality products that are ultra affordable.
As a brand, Giovanni is so underrated and gets very little love from the “naturally curly” community- which is highly frustrating.
Watching all these YouTube influences and only 2 of the influencers I follow have mentioned Giovanni. And these influencers will have you spending money 💰 🙄 on expensive products that are not nearly as good as Giovanni products. Giovanni is the only brand that gives me the consistent results that I want day after day after day.
The products from Giovanni moisturize my fine curls without sacrificing volume. So my hair looks the way I want it to look every time.
I recently tried the Mousse from the Eco Chic line and it is a new Holy grail for me. It works well as a single styling product but plays well with the weightless leave in and pretty much any gel I choose to use (wetline at the moment) – the mousse moisturizes my hair and adds volume- it makes touching up my curls between washes effortless.
Lastly, my hair has grown so much on length in volume after switching to Giovanni products- I use and love: tea tree shampoo/conditioner, 50/50 line, the silk deep moisture line, the weightless leave in, and the Mousse- my hair has never looked this healthy nor felt this healthy in texture.
Giovanni deserves way more love!

This is a Holy Grail for my curly hair. Hands down, best leave in product I have ever used- and there isn’t even a close second.

This is my second Giovanni leave in that I have tried and it is my favorite. I have sensitive skin and a sensitive scalp and the light scent is greatly appreciated. I have microlocs with 4a/4b hair and after I shampoo with the Tea Tree line and add the leave in, my loose ends coil into perfect spiral coils! I like this product because it adds moisture without weighing the hair down or leaving build up. I will definitely be ordering more.

Please never stop selling this nor change the formula. This is the only vegan, leave-in conditioner that works for my hair. On top of that, the price cannot be beat. I get compliments nearly everyday I go out after using this stuff.
Marien Alvarado (verified owner) –
The best leave-in my hair just love this, I am so happy that I finally found a brand that gives me amazing results.

The perfect balance of protein and moisture for my curls. Not heavy and a light fragrance. Added to the arsenal to keep these curls in line and poppin!!!

Ok, I finally broke down and bought this leave-in because I’ve heard so many great things about it. I have to admit, I was very skeptical. I had been looking for what I thought was the perfect leave-in and I think I’ve found it! After washing and conditioning my hair, I applied this leave-in and my hair felt incredible – soft and moisturized; however, the true test would be how my hair would feel after it was dry. I have fine, high porosity, 4c hair which has a hard time retaining moisture. I have to say after my hair had dried, it still felt so soft and moisturized even a couple of days later, which was extremely impressive! And it didn’t take a lot, something I definitely appreciate because that means I’m not spending a ton of money and it didn’t weigh down my hair at all. Now I see why everyone was raving about this leave-in! I’m about to purchase a larger bottle so that I have some in stock. I love it. Thank you so much Giovanni for making this product!

We have happily used this product for years! I was very happy to find it in the 33 ounce size with a pump–very convenient. Both my husband and I use this product. I use a little bit to tame the frizz in my wavy/curly, fine hair. I like that it has very little scent and that it stays soft when it dries. My husband uses this conditioner to enhance his curly hair or to slick it back if he wants a different look.
roades.rebecca (verified owner) –
This is what is says – a light weight leave-in conditioner. I use it after the Smooth as Silk Deep Conditioner (which I brush through my hair and then rinse out). The leave-in conditioner seems a little plasticy (a lot like other leave-ins), but it does moisturize my hair and encourage curl clumps. I use the tee tree triple treat shampoo which is highly cleansing. I would caution curly girls with this shampoo, but I like it because it cleanse my scalp.

So excited I just received my 33oz of Giovanni leave in conditioner. I am so happy they have the bigger bottle because I am so used to buying the smaller bottle, so this will last very long. I enjoy using this conditioner because it is really lightweight I do have Fine strands . I do not like when my hair is weighed down by products. This product just melts and penetrates my hair. I do have kinky coily curly hair And my hair is low porosity. The only con I will say is that it is pricey and I noticed I do have to use a lot of product. But other than that everything was good and I like that it has natural ingredients.

I have wavy/curly fine hair that is very dry and lot of it. I have been looking for a leave in conditioner that does not weigh my hair down. This one is the best and my hair loves it. And it has the moisture my hair needs. My hair feels so soft and silky. Thanks Giovanni, customer for life.
Marjana Cowan (verified owner) –
I am in love with this product! I have very fine curly hair (2B). I have to wash my hair daily to keep the oil at bay and I struggled to find something that would moisturize and define my curls without weighing my hair down and making oily. This is it! I was also surprised to find that it gives my hair so much body that lasts all day! I totally recommend this product.
bluemoonpatterns (verified owner) –
I love this leave in.
Have been using for years
Was happy to see that it was sold in a larger size
Will definitely purchase again
Isvari Maranwe (verified owner) –
This is the best leave in conditioner I’ve ever used. It keeps my 3a curls shiny, moisturized, and frizz-free all week. But also, it VOLUMIZES and adds body. I put a ton of conditioner from my roots to my ends and it makes my hair thicker, rather than weigh it down. (I have normal hair, so it’s neither fine nor thick.) I also have high porosity hair and the protein fills my strands really well. I use it and beer as my leave-ins and then coat with homemade flaxseed gel.
uniquewon07 (verified owner) –
This is by far the BEST leave in conditioner I have ever used. I’ve worn my hair natural for over 20 years, and the Giovanni Weightless Leave In treats my hair the best! I purchased the biggest bottle available and I am so happy. I will continue to use this, and other products from the ECO line. It does exactly as advertised.

I have fine but curly hair white girl hair and this stuff is the perfect weight for it! Not greasy but actually keeps the curls together. I love it and will be ordering it again

Works really well. I apply to my hair after I shampoo and condition. Are use it prior to adding my styling products. Thank you! 🙂
indiacalliope (verified owner) –
Love this product! The leave in is incredibly silky with great slip, makes curls (3a) effortless to detangle. It keeps my hair feeling soft and hydrated all day, while still feels light and not like there’s product buildup or anything. First time buyer, but I’m now a Giovanni convert.
taravillanyc (verified owner) –
I have fine hair and this was light & very hydrating.
Vasavi Venkatesh (verified owner) –
Love Love Love it !!!!!
Why I love it :
1)Hair feels hydrated and soft.
2)Perfect for my 2c/3a hair.
3)Doesn’t weight down my hair
4)I didn’t have to use a curling cream after using this leave-in. This was good enough.
jdanley235 (verified owner) –
Pleeease don’t discontinue! This is a well thought formulation with film-forming humectants and penetrating oils. 100% CG approved. Low comedogenic/acnegenic. Perfect for the price.
It provides a softening, touchable moisture. It also gives definition without any styling products, and shine. Works great with days in between washes and simple refreshes with water. Scent is very light, pleasant, clean and mostly sweet, slightly citrusy.
I have what is called low porosity hair (with 2a-b wavy & midweight). Doesn’t really matter what it’s called though; the effect is the same. Product sits on my hair, builds up, dehydrates = dull, wiry, “greasy” feeling even though my hair is so dry and not oily, just from product. In all my research, I’ve even seen and tried other conditioners of yours (but really wanted exactly a “direct” leave-in), but how have I never found this one??
I tried ordering from Walgreens but the order was cancelled due to out of stock. I ordered two bulk bottles here, but am worried about its future due to the difficulty finding it elsewhere (except Amazon which is full of knockoffs). If discontinuing is on the table, or to make it easier for people to buy without shipping costs anyways, please consider re-packaging/branding for “moisture-resistant or dehydrated hair” that is prone to buildup from heavier products. Also as a lightweight leave-in OR rinse-out conditioner (supplemented with a deep condition as needed), even detangler (works great for mine at least!), which are popular marketing in a few other products right now.
Angel (verified owner) –
Thank you for your comment. There are no plans to discontinue this product.
rachelac96 (verified owner) –
This cg-friendly leave-in conditioner has great slip and provides me with moisture without weighing down my fine, wavy hair. It also smells great!
notlebeitak (verified owner) –
I love this product overall. I’m not a huge fan of the scent, but it’s not bad. It could be nicer-smelling but it’s not offensive or anything, and it does dissipate by the time my hair dries. I have thick, coarse, curly, bleached blonde hair and it LOVES this stuff. It’s CG-method friendly which is great. However, it is also pretty thick and will cause some level of build-up over the course of a few days if you keep applying it. I have to use a LOT though because my hair is so big, long, dry, and dense, so that contributes to build up just because of the sheer amount of product needed to saturate my hair.
Overall would recommend this product for anyone who wants silicone-free, and sulfate-free leave-in conditioner for very dry dense curly hair.
Aubrey Fossum (verified owner) –
This leave in is super solid! After washing last night, I used this and the frizz be gone serum and my hair dried incredibly soft and shiny! I have generally dry, curly hair, and this adds a lot of moisture. Since my hair is so dry, I use an in-shower/rinse out conditioner as well. It’s also been helping me detangle wet hair as well.
foxyrou79 (verified owner) –
This is a solid leave-in conditioner. I used to use it many years ago and loved it. But, after some time, it was harder and harder to find it on the ground. I wanted to try it again to see if I still liked it and I do. I made sure to buy the biggest one, because I cannot easily find it on the ground in my area. I wish this leave-in was sold in more places on the ground. I have a curly/coily hair type and my hair responds well to most of Giovanni hair products. I would recommend it to others. Give it a try!
Shatera Taylor (verified owner) –
I am not new to this conditioner. I have always been a big fan because of the intense moisture and slip it gives. I would normally order from Amazon. But after reading the reviews about the product not being the same, I figured I go to the brand website and here I am. My order came fast and it is still the same from when I purchased it before. I found my home for a great conditioner. Thanks Giovanni Cosmetics ☺️
bombardmyheart (verified owner) –
This leave-in conditioner is INCREDIBLE. It doesn’t weigh down my fine hair, and it provides me with lots of much-needed moisture for my hair. It makes it easy to detangle and style without tugging on the hair too much. Absolutely love this and will be buying again!
Zoe LaTour (verified owner) –
I have natural 3b/3c curls, and this is my FAVORITE conditioner. I use it as a regular conditioner post-wash, and leave it in as my hair dries. It’s cruelty-free, and doesn’t contain any chemicals that are bad for natural hair.
It leaves my hair feeling super soft, hydrated, and smelling phenomenal. My partner even started using a little on his beard and it works wonders.
Christine Ware (verified owner) –
This product has greatly improved my perm damaged gray hair. I searched quite some time for a product with no chemical fragrance as I am allergic to them. I am very impressed with it and will continue to use it. Thank you.
Elizabeth Bonilla (verified owner) –
Literally the best leave in conditioner EVER. It smells AMAZING. Not to mention it leaves my hair so so so soft. My hair is usually really dry and needs a lot of moisture but this is perfect for my hair. I use one full pump and a half on my hair which is to my bra line and medium thickness. I think I would cry if this ever went away. That’s how good it is.

i have thick hair that takes all day to air dry. when i tried this product for the first, my hair dried in 3 hours! amazing product!

This stuff is magic for my 2a-2c waves. It is the perfect amount of moisture without weighing my hair down. This leave in doesn’t leave my hair feeling product-y like some do.

Great conditioner, as light as air! Leaves my hair nice and silky, just as I like it! Not greasy or heavy at all.
Chelsea Dennis (verified owner) –
I cannot recommend this product enough! I heard about it from a fellow curlygirl and she swore by it so I thought I would give it a try! My (previously thought of) unmanageable hair is now soft and growing! It even has shine! I was shocked. I know there is no miracle cure or product, but for me…this is the closest I’ve ever come and I LOVE IT!

I am so happy with Giovanni’s Direct Leave-In Weightless Moisture Conditioner. With prior leave in conditioners I’ve tried before, I had issues with breakouts on my face and body. I have severely sensitive skin, and no product before this one has given me the results I was looking for without breaking out my skin. I am very happy with the results and will continue to use Giovanni’s products going forward. I love the quality and results I get.
Megan King (verified owner) –
I love this leave-in conditioner. It’s the only product I put on my hair after showering and it leaves me with soft curls! Works great on my 2 year old’s hair as well!
Marguerita Haase (verified owner) –
I love this conditioner! I have high porosity 4a-4b hair. I’ve been using this for years. The most amazing slip in the world. The scent is citrus which isn’t my fav but it’s light so I can deal with it. Its not drying but not super moisturizing either so I use it as part of the L.O.C method and it works perfectly.
kobekickslick (verified owner) –
It has been excellent! I come from an Asian race and this helped restore my frizzy and damaged curls like nothing before! 5 stars!!!!
yesvalerie (verified owner) –
Because of the three textures in my hair due to
having a mixed race all American background, Black, White and Native American heritage, Giovanni Direct leave in Conditioner makes my hair so unbelievable soft and bouncy. People actually stare and tell me how beautiful my hair looks. Some even ask if they can touch it. I also use Giovanni’s Moisturizing Shampoo and the Giovanni’s Moisturizing Conditioner as well. Oh yeah!
Ciana Tancrelle (verified owner) –
Why doesn’t everyone use this? I have a ton of 2b/2c hair that can get very dry. Thinking I was doing my hair a favor, I destroyed it using coconut oil. It got so much dryer. Someone gave me a bottle of this for my birthday a few years ago and I’ve used it ever since. This doesn’t weigh my hair down and it keeps it shiny and soft. I get constant compliments on my hair.
I even dilute this in water in a spray bottle and soak my hair before I go swimming in chlorine to help prevent my hair from soaking in the chemicals.
I love it!!!!

I’ve tried a lot of leave ins on my thick, curly hair and this one is my new favorite. It is truly weightless and I got bouncy, voluminous curls when I used this under my gel.

I have used Direct Leave-in conditioner for two years now that I use the Curly Girl method, and couldn’t be happier with this leave-in. Has a nice, light scent, and not overpowering or heavy. A+ product, and love the safe ingredients and cost. My hair loves this conditioner!
Laura Cordwin (verified owner) –
I picked this up in my journey to switch to more curly hair approved hair products and I have LOVED using this leave in. It provides great slip, hydrates without weighing my fine hair, and also smells amazing. Even if I don’t stick to the curly girl method, I will absolutely continue to use this leave in. Giovanni offers very high quality products at a great price point.
Kriss C (verified owner) –
This leave in is…. magic? I’m obsessed!! It leaves my hair incredibly soft!! It is the only leave in I’ve used that doesn’t leave my hair greasy or weighed down. It is absolutely incredible!! I wish they sold this at retailers it is so worth it!!!!

I love this product! It makes my hair so soft and juicy. I use it as a leave in and as a daily moisturizer on my 4c natural hair. I’ll never use anything else.

This leave in conditioner, the “L.A Styling Gel”, shampoos, and conditioners are the only things I will ever use in my hair, I am biracial and have tried EVERYTHING in the drugstores and on “YouTube”. Everything has dried out my hair, left residue, greasiness, frizz, formaldehydes, and harsh alcohols. I have spent so much money in the past and I love how affordable these products are and being of mixed race, we NEED and use more product in our hair than other races. I will always and forever be a customer and I will be buying these products continuously. I will even use these products on my children’s hair in the future. Thank you Giovanni! Never change!
debdebrub (verified owner) –
This is my favorite product!! It has become my holy grail. I have very dry 3b curls. I can put a ton of this in my hair without it getting weighed down. I put this in the length only, and then apply mousse or gel in the roots and on top of this leave in. I also use a tiny bit on refresh days. I just apply a small amount to frizzy spots. I love this leave-in conditioner!
Lisa Rich (verified owner) –
Great product. It is so light, won’t weigh down your curls. Excellent detangler and smells good too.
Brittany (verified owner) –
Love this leave-in! I have fine hair that gets weighed down by heavy products, but this leaves my curls feeling soft and bouncy!
Please do not ever change the formula of this conditioner. It is the best and I’ve tried a lot of brands. Leaves my hair smooth, soft, shiny and no frizz. I haven’t gotten that with other brands. Also love there is no silicones in it. Please never change this conditioner.

This is the absolute best leave in conditioner I’ve ever used. I’m on my 3rd or 4th bottle now and ordered 2 more. This is pretty amazing from someone who tries new things all the time and typically doesn’t even finish a product. I love this product and would recommend it to any hair type. A little goes a long way. It keeps the frizz down, tangles away, and helps my curls be soft and springy.

This product is amazingly moisturizing, yet lightweight. I have fine hair but a lot of it. I’ve tried many other leave ins but find myself always going back to this one I love it so much
Martel Price –
Cant live without it….they stopped selling this in stores I frequent so I had to come straight to the source. I use this product everyday because it helps moisturize my hair follicles and just leaves it feeling soft, very curly, and ready for the next Giovanni product, the LA Hold Styling Gel. I love this stuff because its natural and works well!
Maria (verified owner) –
Definitely the best leave in ever! Great for my very fine thin fragile curls. Very hard to find a product that wont weigh me down. I’m having great success with this product so far. I noticed a huge difference of moisture level in my hair from just first use. I recently switch to all Giovanni products and use this as my leave in and styler for my wash and go and spray a little bit of the moisture treatment and that’s it. I have baskets of other “curly girl routine” products that were a waste, save yourself time and trail and error and try this first.
Christina (verified owner) –
I love this product works amazingly definitely would recommend it to others
I really like this leave in conditioner! I have very dry 3b curly hair and just a little bit of DIRECT LEAVE-IN™ WEIGHTLESS MOISTURE CONDITIONER makes my hair smooth. I like that it is CG approved too! on my refresh days, I mix a tiny bit of this product with some water and smooth it over any flyaway hair and they just disappear! LOVE IT!
This product works great when you need a little extra conditioner. Thank you for not testing on animals!!!
I love this leave in. I’ve been Curly Girl for a year and this product is the bomb! I will also say that this company has the best customer service I have encountered in a long time. They are honest and very responsive. Back to this product line. I use the smooth as silk shampoo and conditioner and my hair loves it. These are great products!
I purchased the Direct Leave In along with the smooth As Silk shampoo and conditioner. I have to say I love these products and they work very well on my curly hair. I love that they are Curly Girl Method safe and don’t dry out my hair. The other wonderful thing is this company is true to their word and has great customer service. You can’t go wrong with any of these products.
Best leave in Conditioner I have ever ever used. It actually made my hair curl without a definer which is rare. Please please please don’t ever discontinue or change this product.

Laura Smith –
I absolutely LOVE this leave in!! I have thick 3b curly hair. It really gives me great moisture and leaves my hair so soft! I LOVE pairing this leave in with the la naturals styling gel! Best combo!!????????
This leave-in conditioner has worked great on my wavy, fine, thick hair. It’s really hard to find a product that doesn’t weigh down and flatten my hair. Couldn’t be happier with this product!
Have used this product for several years and loved it. Just bought a new bottle and you’ve clearly changed the formula! Not as thick and it does not work the same. Why did you mess with a winning formula??? I’m now going to have to search for a new leave in. ????
Thank you so much for your feedback. We have not changed the formula for our Direct Leave In Weightless Moisture Conditioner. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further review.
