I'm so sad :(

I thought I had found my forever conditioner when I bought Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Conditioner. I have been using it for about 2 years and I had good hair days every day. My new 32 oz. bottle came in the mail the other day, not paying any attention to the bottle the moment the conditioner hit my hand I knew something was wrong. Sure enough, I checked the bottle...NEW FORMULA!! Ingredients missing, not good. My hair hates this new formula. My curls were shiny and soft, now my hair is rough and feels just awful. So now I'm on the hunt for a new conditioner and need suggestions. Maybe you guys can help me find my new forever conditioner :)

Here is what I was using and my hair was awesome...
Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Shampoo
Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Conditioner
Aussie Hair Insurance
Aubrey Organics B-5 Design Gel

    Isn't that SO frustrating when they change the formula?
