Need a new drugstore RO

So I currently use GVP for a rinse out but I always like to have two because my hair likes when I rotate products. I recently found out that my second has cetyl esters in it (yes to blueberries) and my hair dislikes that. Im looking for something Drugstore or sallys thats a good RO AND PROTEIN FREE. Thanks!

Tried posting on protein sensitive page and got no replies :(

    Out of curiosity, what reaction does your hair have to cetyl esters?

    I've used Suave Tropical coconut conditioner. Bear in mind that hair needs a balance of protein & moisture to stay healthy unless you have coarse hair. Protein will make your hair dry. That's why you need to deep condition after using a protein treatment. I can use conditioners with a small amount of protein in it. (With the protein in the middle of the ingredient list) I use the Shea moisture anti breakage deep treat. It has some protein in it but doesn't dry out my hair too much. I use a hydrating conditioner after.

    I can't speak for what Greencup13's hair does, but cetyl esters are a waxy ingredient. Waxes are one ingredient cowashing doesn't do a good job of removing. Some people don't have issues with cetyl esters, while others get buildup fairly quickly.

    My hair basically get very very bad build up. Gets tangled like a rats nest. Unable to comb through no matter how much conditioner I apply. Hair gets waxy and conditioner won't touch the hair. Which basically ends up with me using a low poo/acv and sometimes a sulfate shampoo with no silicones. It's terrible.

    I used to really like Tresemme Naturals, but that was before they reformulated their product. The only drugstore RO I'm currently using is GVP like you!
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG

    Apple cider vinegar can cause hair problems. Be careful using it.
