    Been using tresseme naturals but picked up some V05 coconut milk? Its much better at cleansing I think. Something about the tresseme was not rinsing out completely.

    Edit- not even sure if it actually has coconut milk in it.... lol.

    As I am coconut co wash is my go to. I have tresemme naturals and suave coconut but their just okay to me. for some reason they can be iffy for me. I I usually use as I am for cleansing (mostly roots), and then use something like suave, vo5, tresemme, and sometimes shea moisture for the length. Vo5 chamomile tea and free me freesia are two of my all time favorites though when I do use the more watery types!

    Still using Suave coconut and VO5 kiwi lime. Love them, my hair loves them, so cheap and easy to find. I try other things for fun but always come back to these.

    Sorry if this is a silly question, but do your cowashes contain silicones? Does it matter that they contain them, if you don't leave it in?
  • curlicious13curlicious13 Registered Users Posts: 1,632 Curl Neophyte
    My go to cowaahes are suave coconut & garnier fructis strength/length.

    I don't think any of the products I use have silicones in them.

    I'm loving the Devacurl No Poo. I also enjoy the Curl Junkie Daily Fix, but the Devacurl has edged that one out of the number 1 spot. It has great slip, and the peppermint feels good on my scalp, especially since I've been working out lately, and it also cleanses well without being the least bit stripping, have it in the big pump bottle and it works great when I need a light cleansing.
    Super Thick corkscrews and waves. LOVE Elucence MBC, Giovanni 50/50 condish, Qhemet Products, V05 Calming Chamomile Tea Therapy condish, Jessicurl WDT. These are my official HG's that I love oh so much

    I love Vo5 conditioners for co-washing. Shea cashmere, moisture milk, and the kiwi lime squeeze clarifying conditioners are my absolute favorite. Thank God that a Walgreens just open up in the Virgin Islands.

    Not all silicones are bad. In fact, they are used in conditioners to provide the extra "slip" and coating for your hair.
