The difference between VO5 conditioners

Here's a question for the VO5 users. Just out of curiosity, do you find a significant difference between the CO-washes labeled moisturizing/strengthening and the ones labeled clarifying? I picked up the Kiwi Lime Squeeze Clarifying Conditioner for when I do start CG, but in case I ever wanted to switch things up (just for the fun of it!), I figured I'd ask. TIA! :happy10:

    I just went CG today and am using my Kiwi Lime Squeeze. Input on the above, anyone? :) So far I like where this is headed. My waves are halfway decent, I have almost no frizz, and my scalp isn't that greasy -- the roots of my hair are just really soft. I think my hair was just begging me for more moisture! In a weird way, I feel like I'm helping my hair. :) It feels GOOD!

    In my experience, the clarifying ones (I've used both Vanilla Mint and Kiwi Lime) are lighter than the other ones and the Moisture Milks line is heavier than the Naturals or Tea Therapy lines.

    Thank you SO much! This helps me out a lot! :D After I run out of this one (which will probably be fast -- I seem to need a lot to CO-wash with), I'm going to try a more moisturizing one like Suave Naturals and see if it affects my hair in any way. By "naturals," you do mean the Suave line, right? Thanks again!

    Sorry, I meant "Herbals," not "Naturals." I can't use Suave at all, so I can't really comment on how those compare.

    I agree.
    The kiwi lime is one of my favorite conditioners.
    Suave coconut is still my all time favorite.

    Thank you both.

    Ok, since you cleared that one up, I might use an Herbal one next time, rhosyn_du! ;) Thanks to you, and to jeepcurlygurl, too!
