what's your fav moisturizing rinse out?

I'm jumping on the CG bandwagon again (tried last fall, then I got pregnant and hormones messed with everything including my hair so I fell back into old habits and simply "survived" for a few months!). I used a clarifying low-poo a few days ago, and co-washed for the first time today.

Lately no matter what I do I end up with lots of frizz and flyaways as my hair air-dries (no time for diffusing -- I've got a toddler!). And I'm thinking I'm needing a stronger moisturizing conditioner for my rinse-out. Today I used SN coconut for a co-wash, and I have a bottle of Renpure Moisturizing conditioner that I used for RO. But I realized how "runny" the Renpure is, and so I'm thinking of trying something thicker/stronger.

So what's your favorite moisturizing rinse-out conditioner? I have medium-long length hair, so I end up needing to use a lot, so I'd prefer something not too expensive...

P.S. I did also use a leave-in today, but still got the flyaways. Once my hair was dry I applied a little more leave-in which helped, but I'd still like to get it right the first time...

    Um two great rinse outs for me are Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition although you can try all the other types, it's about 7 dollars for 25 ounces at any drugstore. An even better rinse outis GVP conditioning balm which is really thick and can be found at Sally's. It's a little more expensive about 8 dollars for 16 ounces
    Lo-poo:organix Shea butter shampoo
    Co-wash: suave coconut
    Rinse out:GFTN/GVP conditioning balm
    Leave in: GF daily care spray leave in
    Serum-like product: still need one
    Gel:LA looks sport gel/ HESMU,GFPC
    Oils: olive, coconut

    I think I'm normal-overly porous, medium-thick hair(although I see fine hair too), love protein

    Yes to GVP Conditioning Balm, I got mine for 5.99. Sally's often has great sales! I love it! It just feels really good and makes my hair so much softer! I leave it in while I finish the rest of my shower/bath and rinse it out at the very end. You don't have to use a lot of it either, and I have tons of hair. ;)

    Ok since I'm still kinda new to this... what is GVP?

    No Sally's around here, just things like Target, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and local stores (Spartan & Meijer). But I'm not opposed to shopping online.

    Anyone else have suggestions?

    GVP is a generic brand that Sally's sells. The generics are EXACT. GVP Conditioning Balm is the generic of Biolage Conditioning Balm. You can also order online at Sally's.

    +1 also I've heard that Walgreens Carey's a generic brand of the biolage conditioning balm as well and I think it's pretty much the same. I'm not sure what the name is though

    P.s I found out its called BioInfusion Professional Hydrating Conditioning Balm I believe n I think it's 8 dollars for around 17 ounces
    Lo-poo:organix Shea butter shampoo
    Co-wash: suave coconut
    Rinse out:GFTN/GVP conditioning balm
    Leave in: GF daily care spray leave in

    Yeah, I believe you are right. It says "compare to biolage" on the bottle. Yeah, that one would be easier to get since there is no Sallys near her. Actually I have seen some girls talk about a generic at Akins, and it's like 2 or 3 dollars. I've never tried those, but they are all pretty much the same from what I can tell.
