  1. Anne

    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. ????

    • Angel

      Hello Anne,
      Thank you so much for your feedback. We have not changed the formula for our Direct Leave In Weightless Moisture Conditioner. Please email for further review.

  2. Mia

    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!

  3. 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!!????????

  4. Tina Caldwell (verified owner)

    My hair ABSOLUTELY LOVES this leave in, my 3c/4a curls seem to come alive when I use it. So much bounce and moisture, it’s AWESOME!!!!

  5. Leah

    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.

  6. pier.farias

    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.

  7. pier.farias

    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!

  8. redrubyluv

    This product works great when you need a little extra conditioner. Thank you for not testing on animals!!!

  9. Debra

    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!

  10. Christina (verified owner)

    I love this product works amazingly definitely would recommend it to others

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. Ashley Wilkins

    I have curly wavy hair and follow CG
    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

  14. Marie (verified owner)

    This is the holy grail of leave in conditioners for this CG method followers. Leaves my hair soft and gives it volume. I will definitely buy again!

  15. Sarah (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this for a week or so and I love it! it has a light, clean scent, and it doesn’t weigh down my fine hair. It helps my curls hold their shape as my hair air-dries.

  16. Amanda Lillard (verified owner)

    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.

  17. Susan Shelly (verified owner)

    I have used Eco-Chic products for 20+yrs. I absolutely LOVE the Leave-In Conditioner and the larger size !!! Our natural product store recently closed and I am so glad to find your products on-line . . . Thank you, Giovanni !!!

  18. Dawn

    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.

  19. 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!

  20. Lisa Rich (verified owner)

    Great product. It is so light, won’t weigh down your curls. Excellent detangler and smells good too.

  21. 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!

  22. jordynsgiesige (verified owner)

    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!

  23. Nina Shephard (verified owner)

    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.

  24. 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!!!!

  25. 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.

  26. Amy Murphy (verified owner)

    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!

  27. chrilas2 (verified owner)

    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.

  28. Stephanie Vasquez (verified owner)

    Best leave in I have found so far. My kids and I all have curly hair and have found nothing that even compares.

  29. 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!!!!

  30. 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!

  31. 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!!!!

  32. 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.

  33. 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!

  34. isthisiswhatuwant (verified owner)

    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.

  35. Briana Thompson (verified owner)

    I love this leave in! My hair is fine and so easy to look weighed down and limp. This is great for my curls and the CG method. I use this and the LA gel together. I use it on my daughter as well.

  36. m.madhaveelatha (verified owner)

    This is a must have hair prOduct for my 2b 3a curly hair. It defines my curls while keeping my hair soft N manageable.

  37. JoAnna Dandino (verified owner)

    Love!!! Just the right!!! Doesn’t weigh my hair down yet gives me soft, frizz free curls!!!

  38. 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!

  39. qami3210 (verified owner)

    Great conditioner, as light as air! Leaves my hair nice and silky, just as I like it! Not greasy or heavy at all.

  40. Crystal Grad (verified owner)

    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.

  41. leigh striffler (verified owner)

    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!

  42. 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.

  43. 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.

  44. 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.

  45. 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!
