I realized today that my current protein conditioner (Nature's Gate Biotin Conditioner) was reformulated, so I was wondering if any of you had recommendations on what I should try next, since my bottle will soon run out.

The ingredients of the conditioner I have are:

Water, Glycerin (Vegetable), Stearyl Alcohol (Vegetable Derived), Cetyl Alcohol (Vegetable Derived), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Vegetable Derived), Benzyl Alcohol, Biotin, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein, Jojoba Seed Oil, Borage Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Sesame Seed Oil, Barley Extract, Geranium Maculatum Extract, Olive Leaf Extract, Pansy Extract, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Niacin, Sodium PCA, Sodium Lactate, Cysteine, Arginine, Serine, Threonine, Folic Acid, Aspartic Acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate, PCA, Glycine, Alanine, Valine, Isoleucine, Proline, Histidine, Phenylalanine, Inositol, Stearalkonium Chloride (Vegetable Derived), Hydroxyethycellulose (Plant Derived), Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid (Vegetable Derived), Fragrance.

    My go-to's are in my sig: VO5 Kiwi Lime (cowash, every other wash) and ION Effective Care (find it at Sally's). These are two things I am never without.

    condishes: VO5 VMT, KLS; IonEC
    stylers: FSG, 4NSBCC, VolumaxMega, AIF, GFPC


    Mod CG since 11/2012. My waves occasionally look best when combed out, so you can pry my combs from my cold, dead hands :laughing6:

    Thank you for the recommendation, Padraigin! My hair loves behentrinonium methosulfate and I was looking for a conditioner that has both that and protein, so I'll see if I can find that conditioner in store. I ended up being able to find a bottle of the old version of my conditioner, but I'll try the Jason's conditioner as soon as I run out.

    SpiralHam: I've never been able to find the VO5 conditioners, I'm not sure if they are sold in Canada, but I'll keep them in mind, thanks!

    I really like the Hask Keratin Protein Smoother conditioner. It has a cone toward the bottom, don't know if you're opposed to that or not. I believe the Hask Keratin Protein deep conditioner doesn't have it, but it only comes in packets with about 3 uses.
    2c-3a - med-coarse - normal-high porosity - high density

    I do try to avoid silicones, but I'll look into the protein deep conditioner. Does it act more as a protein treatment or deep conditioner?
