I am a single mom on a serious budget and I wanna know some good conditioners I can use w/o breaking the bank. I have very thick 4b hair and I need something my hair isnt going to soak up quick.

    By breaking the bank, do you mean under $5?

    If so, then stock up on Trader Joe's conditioners ($3). the tea tree and the balancing conditioners are awesome! I haven;t tried the citrus conditioner that they sell.

    But, if you can manage under $10, I would recommend SheaMoisture ($10). Every once in a while Walgreens will have them on sale BOGO.

    If you can get to a TJ Maxx or a Marshalls, then you can get a Giovanni conditioner for $13. It's the big boy though, with the pump (1 liter, I think). All of the Giovanni conditioners are amazing, IMHO.
    Hair characteristics: 4a/b, thick, coarse, low porosity

    poo- ACV rinse and Rhassoul clay
    cowash/leave-in- AO conditioners, KCKT, and TJ conditioners
    dc- BASK conditioners
    moisture- BASK Honey Latte
    styler- flaxseed gel

    Hi there! I know what you mean about thick hair -- do you mean rinse out or leave-ins?

    My fave cheap ROs:
    $5: Garnier Pure and Clean
    $5: TreSemme Naturals
    $7-8: Giovanni Smooth as Silk
    (all at a local drugstore or Walmart/Target)

    My fave cheap(er) LIs:
    $8-10: SheaMoisture Shea Butter leave in (online only, not the walgreens line/brand)
    $10: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie (Walgreens,I use as LI under gel)
    $7-8: Giovanni Smooth as Silk (Walmart/Target)

    Hope that helps a little.

    I have used the shea moisture spray but never used the conditioner but I can't do the leave in those don't work in my hair for some reason it just dries it out.
