Which Brand for Conditioner Washing?

Hey curlies I've noticed that many of you use Suave, VO5 or White Rain conditioners as your washing conditioner. I was wondering which of the three is best, and if you use one of them, which "flavor" do you use/like best? Thanks!

    I use vanilla mint tea VO5 and I love the way it leaves my hair feeling, and I REALLY love the way it makes my hair smell = ) It's a gentle yet lasting scent that I can't get enough of
    New to CG so still have a lot to figure out!
    3b,fine, medium to high porosity
    Products: VO5 for CO wash and rinse out. Instead of leave in CO, I use tresemme curl creme to moisterise and prevent frizz. Tresemme curl care gel, and pantene curl locking hair spray.

    I use V05 Vanilla Mint Tea too! It smells delicious, and makes my hair feel clean. I also use Deva No-Poo.

    I've used several VO5 versions and liked them but my favorite is Trader Joes Refresh.

    3A, fine but thick, low porosity, low to medium resilience, protein sensitive but not to silk

    Favorites: Anything from Curly Kinks...their system is my new holy grail. Still liking Juice Organics Orange and TJ Refresh Conditioners as all purpose co-wash and rinse outs.

    I haven't been liking co-washing lately but when I do I like Vo5 Blackberry Sage and Suave Tropical Coconut, Wild Cherry Blossom & Tangerine.

    I voted Suave but love both Suave and VO5 equally.
    Suave coconut, VO5 moisture milks strawberry or raspberry and kiwi lime are my favs. I've used them for about 6 years now.
    White Rain conditioners worked fine for me but I didn't like the flavors as well. Too flowery or strong for my taste.
    --I'm located in Western PA.   --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.

    I've tried Sauve and VO5 and tbh never really liked either. I didn't find they gave me the clean feeling I was looking for. I never had the opportunity to try White Rain (couldn't find it locally).

    I used Kenra Moisturizing, as both co-wash and rinse out, for 2 yrs or more which I loved.

    I just recently switched to CJ Daily Fix which is awesome. I've used it twice and because my hair doesn't need much moisture I only needed to co-wash, I didn't need any additional conditioner.
    Current Products: CJ Products: CF, DF, CT, SG, AFG, CIAB AND CK is back!
    Current Experiment: S&C by D

    Curl Fix and Daily Fix are my HGs :love4:

    Actually I alternate between Suave, vo5 and Salon Care honey almond conditioner. I like them all! As for the Suave/Vo5, I just go with the scent that I want for the day...they seem to clean about the same for me.
    I love the scent of the Suave Cherry Blossom, vanilla and the lavendar/lilac...Vo5-a variety of the "Tea's" smell wonderful and I love the Champaign kiss, kiwi....
