MyrnaMyrna Posts: 2,332Registered Users Curl Neophyte
Used it today as a conditioner...and love it, love the smell and the results. is anyone else using it, as a conditioner, not as a wash? what do you think? For $.99 - what a deal!

    I love it and rotate it as both a CO wash and as a conditioner.

    I also use VO5 Kiwi Lime and VO5 Vanilla Mint Tea and rotate them as CO wash followed by a different one for conditioning. I can't really tell that there is a difference between the combos, but I love them all so much I can't stop experimenting.

    Im very surprised by this conditioner! It's seems richer, yet lighter than suave. Working great as a rinse out:) Im sooo glad VO5 found a way to incorporate shea. Currently Im rotating suave coconut and shea cashmere, my hair loves this right now...(fyi, can't use it as a leave in like suave coconut...the cashmere is too protein-a-licious).

    I have yet to find this but I wanna try it. I bet it smells good like the other vo5 conditioners

    I really like the suave naturals Mango Mandarin/Sun-ripened Strawberry/Refreshing Waterfall Mist. These do not have protein. So my question is, are the V05 conditioners protein free too?

    Hmmm...has biotin. Wonder if anyone noticed it helping with hair growth? Also has denat. alcohol; has anyone noticed any issues with this drying out their hair?

    The alcohol in this does not affect me. I rinse it out. If I left it in I'd be telling another story.

    Me too. Apparently only the Tea Therapy V05 is protein free.

    I noticed it contains alcohol is that ok? I'm a modified cg but working on being 100% lol

    Still loving as a rinse out! Thicker than other vo5 varieties, smooth, creamy and rich. My hair feels wonderful. It's so weird it's behaving?

    Are you using any as a leave in? and dont you love the fact that it is $.99?:flower:
  • missbanjomissbanjo Posts: 3,088Registered Users
    I had forgotten about this condish. Thanks for the reminder and I'll be picking some up today. I don't remember if I'd tried it as a L/I or not but I'll certainly see how it does.

    I love this as a rinse out too! It's too thin for me as a leave-in so I haven't tried it like that. I try not to talk about this one much because it's hard to find sometimes and I don't want everyone to buy it up and leave me sad with zero bottles lol.

    Uh oh. Can't use this everyday. Protein overload! And I think the Shea...it's always the Shea... That's breaking out my hairline. Ima cut it out until I clear up and only use a couple times per week. I reeeeeealy don't want to let it go, my hair loves this! And it smells Delish:)

    Not in my area. I only see them at Rite-Aid and they only keep one or two in stock. I did see it at a grocery once but the one I bought had a different scent and horrible performance.

    I have never seen the VO5 in Toronto but when I went to Buffalo NY I saw them at Walmart for 89 cents! I was a bit worried that something so cheap wouldn't be good for my hair and I dont understand half the ingredients on the bottle. I got the Passion fruit smoothie conditioner, has anyone else tried this one? I havent used it yet.I usually use the Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture for co washing and I really like it.

    So far I have only tried the Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture conditioner. My mom has been raving about it forever so I thought I would try it out. I really like it! My hair is long and it makes it so much easier to detangle my comb just glides through my hair! it also makes my hair very soft. I got it in a big bottle 33.8 fl oz or 1,000 ml. I would really like to try the leave in conditioner.

    Ok thanks! im looking for a holy grail so Im on a hunt for new and EFFECTIVE products lol

    I love the Giovanni as a leave in. I have not found anything better. I am not crazy about their leave in. However, I dont think I can use the Giovanni every day, so I alternate with the VO5 Shea Cashmere, or Cure Care (Sally). Sometimes I leave just a small amount of these 2 in my hair, like now, when the weather is colder. I dont see the need for a separate leave in.

    The Walmarts & Walgreens in this area don't carry VO5 at all. I have to get shea cashmere at King Soopers (Kroger) and if I want the vanilla mint tea I have to go to one of the Kmarts.
