Moisturizing cone free conditioners for good prices

I use conditioners to do my flat twists, and I'm now thinking to go cone free. What are some good moisturizing cone free conditioners?

    hi! Can you give a more specific range when you say good prices?

    Less than or equal to $1.25/ounce? Idk. Conditioners you think are good for the amount of money you paid for them.

    If you happen to stroll into a Family Dollar and take a peek into the hair aisle, you may find Suave NATURALS which is cone free. I must say that it is pretty good. And it's less than $2.00...

    No cones in Sally's GVP. It doesn't have a lot of slip, but it does get tangles out for me and it is moisturizing.

    I didnt like tresseme naturals, not much moisture or slip for my thick, dense hair. I didnt like VO5 either, had to use a lot of both of them. I use gvp conditioning balm now, I love it. I find that if I emulsify it with water in a pump bottle, the slip is amazing. Im also thinking of trying as I am coconut cowash for my scalp, regular conditioners dont work for me.
