Looking for super moisturizing RO condish reccs!

I already cowash with AIA Coconut cowash, and use KCKT as a LI, plus SM Smoothie or CJ CCCC & KCCC or AIA curling jelly as stylers. However on dry days with low dews, I feel like a RO is needed as well. My hair loves CJ condishes, but I want something that I can get on the ground and that isn't soooo pricey. and the usual suspects such as tresemme naturals, suave, vo5, gvpcb just are not heavy/thick/moisturizing enough. My hair doesn't mind protein or glycerin, and loves BTMS. Any ideas???

Proud momma to 8!!! :love3:

    You might try the AIA Hydration Elation Intensive Conditioner or perhaps CJ Curl Rehab. Using a touch of a deep conditioner as a Ro or LI might just do the trick!
    Fine, low porosity, med density, normal elasticity.
    Dislikes: Aloe by itself, cheap gels, and heavy butters
    Co-wash: CJ Daily Fix
    Condish: CJ Beauticurls Strengthening
    LI: Curlsmith Oil-in-Cream
    Stylers: CJ Curl Queen, Flaxseed gel, Uncle Funky's Daughter Curly Magic.
    PT: CJ Repair Me or IA Girls PT w/ mag. sulfate,
    DT: CJ Rehab and Righteous Roots Hair Rx or Pre-poo oil.

    If you're hair REALLY likes protein, I'd suggest Aubrey Organics GPB. I love it but no more than a couple times a month. I don't have any other on the ground recommendations but I just wanted to say that I love curl junkie rehab too! And Darcy's Botanicals pumpkin seed conditioner is suupppper moisturizing for a RO
    high porosity (from coloring)

    Shampoo: Mop Top Gentle Shampoo
    Co-wash: Chistophe Robin Lemon Cleansing Cream
    RO: CJ strengthening, Kenra moisturizing
    LI: Jessicurl Aloeba
    DT: CJ rehab, Christophe Robin Prickly Pear Mask
    PT: SS protein treatment, Ouidad 12 minute
    Stylers: Jessicurl RR, SS Firm Hold Gel
    Oils: caudalie, sweet almond
