Looking for a new RO comparable to GVPCB

greencup13greencup13 Posts: 596Registered Users
I like to have 2(or more) products to rotate. I was using GVPCB and CJ curl assurance smoothing conditioner but it has cetyl esters in it :( My hair has recently been sensitive to cetyl esters and polyquats. I'm trying to find another HG conditioner without both of those product that has great slip and moisturizing properties. I'm having a heck of a time. I was going to try the Aubrey organic but they contain alcohol denat.

Suggestions please!!

    Have you looked at Elucence moisture balance conditioner? I LOVE this conditioner. It has nice slip. I also use GVPCB.

    I have not looked at that one yet ingredients look pretty promising. Can this we bought anywhere but curlmart? Don't want to pay shipping if I don't have to

    I use GVP CB a lot and have used the Elucence conditioner as well. IMO they are nothing alike! GVP CB is a lot heavier, and much more moisturizing. The Elucence conditioner is one of the lightest conditioners I've ever used and not nearly as moisturizing. I like to use CJ Curl Rehab as another heavy hitting conditioner. I like that even better than the GVP!

    Also, have you tried adding an oil and honey to a regular conditioner to make it better?

    I love Giovanni 2chic Avocado and Olive Oil Conditioner. It has good slip and is really moisturizing. It can be bought at Target or Whole Foods.

    Bringing this back. I was using giovionni smooth as silk but unfortunately I can't find it in Walmart or target anymore! So I'm once again looking for a nice moisturizing RO comparable to gvpcb

    I have not found anything comparable to the GVP CB! I hope they never stop making it! Adding myself to this thread...

    The CJ rehab as someone mentioned is pretty great.

    Sometimes I'll add honey to subpar conditioners to get something *close* but not quite the same.

    I'm thoroughly convinced there "ain't no such critter!" I've tried so many, so very many, and nothing comes close. My hair loves the stuff.
