    I have, the conditioners don't hsve enough slip at all. The shampoos sre average. Try renpure conditioner and shampoo. The red bottles. Moisturizing ones.

    tenapaige, what's your hair like? Is it thick? Dry? Tight curls?

    I can tell you inexpensive brands, but I don't know which formulations I could recommend. My hair is naturally very dry, and it's closer to "thick", than "medium-thick". A single application wash/rinse of my hair conditioner, on my hair, uses more product than some people probably use in a year. Plus, I use a leave-in conditioner and a curl cream.

    I agree with other recommendations for the SheaMoisture line. I haven't used any of the shampoo or conditioner, but I use the moisturizer spray, the curl milk, and the smoothie, and they're great. I get my products at Target, and they're not too expensive. Target also has the Kinky Curly line. I love their products as well, but they come in tiny bottles and they're definitely more than $10.00 each. Still, Kinky Curly Knot Today, is a product that comes as close to perfection as anything I've ever come across. For my hair, it's truly amazing. Kinky Curly also has a clarifying shampoo that's excellent. I use it about once a month to once every two months.

    I heard mane&tail is good but I have yet to try since I love Assusie but the mane&tail is good for protein

    If you can find it in your area, Renpure is good. $5.99 each or thereabouts, and it goes on BOGO every so often. If your hair likes protein, there's the Brazilian Keratin line, and if it prefers moisture, the Luxurious Argan Oil is protein free.

    Thankyou both... Now I have to figure out which out of all of these I want to use I've just started getting rid of all this hair product and Im not trying to go down that road again lol

    I have been wanting to try Renpure's Cleansing Conditioners for a long time. I find my hair is definitely at its best when I use Cleansing Conditioners or Conditioner-only. It takes like a week to "get over" any clarifying or experimentation to which I subject my hair. I really should just gain some self-control.;-)

    Have any of you tried them? (Not trying to hijack this thread...they can be recs for tenapaige as well)

    tenapaige - it does sound like your hair is similar to mine, but mine is kind of thicker at the roots, because the ends are quite damaged. You may want to avoid lots of protein, and, depending upon your climate, lots of glycerin.

    Now that the "canopy" on the top of my head is growing out of the mullet-like chop I performed on it (with sewing scissors, eek) over a year ago, it's starting to "triangle" a bit. And that top section of hair is still completely different from the hair on the rest of my head! It's like Barbie doll hair. I hate it.

    I did try the Renpure cleansing conditioner (Ren) and didn't really care for it. I didn't think it cleansed or conditioned especially well. It also has amodimethicone, if that's a consideration for you (I'm modified CG, so I don't mind occasional cones).

  • lady_mlady_m Posts: 254Registered Users
    Suave Naturals with Shea Butter! It's like 3$ and change. It's really good.
  • tenapaigetenapaige Posts: 208Registered Users

    elasta qp creme conditioning shampoo

    conditioners
    tresemme naturals w/olive oil
    gvp conditioning balm
    mane n tail for protein and detangling
    aussie moist if u use silicones

    all the shampoos don't get ur hair tangled or frizzy, in fact they leave ur hair well moisturized and I have 3c 4a hair.

    I use and love Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle shampoo and conditioner (3a or 3b hair here). You can usually get both for $10 total!!
  • tenapaigetenapaige Posts: 208Registered Users
    @sus I like the botanics they have pretty much all natural and the conditioner is really creamy and thick which i like....

    Now I use the trader joes natural botanics shampoo... Vo5 conditioner(shea cashmere and repairing cond) these work good as leave ins too the shea works better as leave in... I use equal parts water and conditioner as a refresher put both of these in a spray bottle
