Just came across another new VO5 conditioner to try.

About a month ago I found the VO5 Silky Experience Shea Cashmere conditioner and I'm still loving that one. Today I found another flavor - Island Coconut. I'll try it out tomorrow. Most of the VO5 conditioners have been on sale around her for 79 cents so I've been stocking up.

Ingredients: Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Stearlakonium Chloride, Fragrance (Parfum), Glyceryl Stearate, DMDM Hydantoin, Disodium EDTA, Benzophenone-4, Propylene Glycol, Stearyl Alcohol, Steareath-21, Polysorbate-20, Tocopleryl Acetate, Panthenol, Ascorbic Acid, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Extract, Niacinamide, Biotin

--I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
--My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.
--My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.

    Used it today and for me it's exactly like the Shea Cashmere - same texture, same detangling, etc. Love them both.
    The smell is great, a little different than the Suave coconut which I also love.
    I am so glad that my hair loves these cheap easy to find conditioners.

    I just picked this up last night at Meijer, along with another new VO5 called Ocean Refresh. I really, really love trying out new scents when they come out. The Meijer price is .84, literally a cheap, cheap thrill!

    No protein in the coconut? That is different. May have to try this..... too.

    Yes, I freakin love Meijer too!!!!

    However, I have to say I really HATE these VO5's! Yuck! Struck out with both of them. I like Suave Coconut and I guess it must be because of the protein. I've been too lazy to compare the Ocean formulas to maybe see why my hair was so awful w/ the VO5.

    Oh well, I am out of shaving cream, so I will repurpose both of these conditioners for shaving!

    Smells heavenly! Unfortunately, without protein, this vo5 can't do anything for me. I need protein in my rinse outs (which this lacks) and due to the chlorides, I can't leave this in...soooooo, maybe it could serve as a base for a warm weather DC come summer?
