Protein, Glycerin and Coconut Oil-free conditioner(s) recommendations needed

My hair is annoying. I have fine (but a lot of) 2a/2b hair with low porosity roots, high porosity ends and a mixture of both throughout the lengths. I also dye it with fashion colours (a mixture of Kenra Creatives, Special Effects and Pravana), which is the main reason I don't want anything with glycerin in it - not even low on the list. It strips the colour out everytime I use anything even with the tiniest bit of glycerin. My hair is protein sensitive - I can only do a protein treatment every 3-6 months depending on how often I bleach my hair, so I can't have protein in any of my "regular use" products. Coconut oil dries out my hair like crazy so it's a no-go there aswell.

I'm looking for a conditioner, deep conditioner/mask and a leave-in spray. I need A LOT of moisture, slip and just... a product that can provide a hug for my troubled hair. I'd love recommendations of products that smell tropical or gourmand-esque (vanilla/caramel).<br><br>Thank you!

    Welcome!  The only product I'm sure fits all your requirements is Curl Junkie Pattern Pusha, but it's not a conditioner, it's a curl enhancer/custard.

    You might want to check out GVP Conditioning balm.  I know it's protein free, maybe coconut free, not sure about the glycerin.
