Alberto V05 Tea condtioners as co-wash

nytiffynytiffy Posts: 73Registered Users
Has anyone used the Vo5 Camamile tea conditioner as a co-wash?
I did and it seemed to really clean my hair yet
I did not use a conditioner after co-washing
So my hair was a little dry??

Any advice and what do you think of Vo5
Or have any recommendations
I will be buying Curl Junkie’s Daily conditioner as a
Co-wash once I am out of everything else.

    I used to use VO5 as a co-wash almost exclusively, although not that particular formula.

    I would always use a seperate conditioner on my ends as a rinse out or at least use more of the VO5. I never had an issue.

    I like the V05 vanilla mint tea conditioner for CO wash, but need a small amount of a richer conditioner after washing. Conditioners like V05 and Suave just aren't moisturizing enough for my hair when used alone. For me the advantage of using the cheap stuff for CO washing is that I can use much less of a more expensive conditioner as a rinseout or leave-in.
    Type 2b. Wash: WEN pomegranate or fig. Leave-in conditioner: Alaffia beautiful curls for wavy hair, Spiral Solutions Protein spray. Style: Curls In A Bottle, Ecostyler, or KCCC.

    This VO5 along with other formulas works great for me as a co-wash. But I do have to either add or use a heavy condish as a RO. Alone this dries out my hair. Love the scent too.

    OH, thank ladies, yeah next time I will use
    a thick condtioner after co-washing.

    I am still kind of new to it so i am learning.
    I am kind of Loo-poo and no-poo through out two weeks, one day a week I loo-poo to get rid of build up and and no-poo twice a week
    and water rinse every other day.

    I have to start the day with wet hair and restyle
    or my hair just does not look right..

    but thanks for the advice

    I love love love the cammomile tea one for a cowash, but I have a hard time finding it :(

    I do use a thicker conditioner after, or my hair feels a little dry like you mentioned (I usually use the Sally's Generic for the Matrix Biolage Conditioning balm)

    yeeeeeeah I've been avoiding buying it online... lol, seems like you'd pay WAY more for shipping than the products even worth. And I've never seen a RiteAid here :(

    Occasionally I'll see it at Market Street (random, but whatever) here... I'll just keep stocking up every time I see it :P
