    My faves: Suave Tropical Coconut and Vo5 Vanilla Mint! Love them both, they both detangle great for me! My hair: 3b with some a fine/lots of it!
    3b/a
    Cowash - No Poo
    Conditioner - One Condition
    Gel - Light Defining Gel

    Looking to try Devacurl Decadence line next! Can't wait to try it.

    The loreal nutrigloss for curly/wavy has the most slip of any drugstore condish I've ever tried. Some people end up with frizz from it though.
    Fine Wavy (2a)
    Weeklyish shampoo with CO's inbetween to keep down the grease.

    Any chance I could find this at CVS? I'm an Activate-finding failure and am beginning to think it just doesn't like me. :lol:

    I'm also eyeing that curl vive condish, mostly because of the pink bottle. :oops: I can't help it, it's pretty!
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:

    Thanks but the Loreal and Activate both have protein which build up on my hair. :cry: Although, I have to agree about the Activate it detangles like nobody's business. :D

    I have only found Activate at Walgreens, Ulta and at some Walmart stores. There is a store locator on the website. I actually called the company, because I couldn't find the soft curls gel in my area so they sent me samples of it and of the shampoo and condish.!! :D

    Ditto the Suave coconut. Works great at detangling. I don't know how much protein it has tho.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    I really like Suave Citrus Smoothie. It's great at detangling and it smells really good!

    Have you tried either of them? I have protein issues as well, but because the protein in them is so low on the ingredients list, neither of them causes me problems. Might be worth a shot :)

    eta: duh, you just said the activate detangles well so you've at least tried that one. :roll:

    :lol: Yes, I have tried both. The loreal nutrigloss made it almost impossible to detangle my hair. It did make my hair soft afterwards but I had to basically rip the tangles out of my hair with this one. The Activate melted my tangles but within a matter of 2-3 days the protein build up was making my hair frizzy and blah looking. If there was a way that I could use it and not get the protein build up or a way to undo the build up I would use it because like I said it is the only drugstore condish that melts my rat's nest.

    Hi, thanks I have seen that site and while I like it I wanted a little more feedback from people who have used these and other cg safe and protein free drugstore conditioners. So, my question for you is have you used any on the list and if yes which ones do you like or not like and why? Thanks. :D

    I favor Vo5 over Suave. Any of the Moisture Milks have proteins. I like the Tea therapy, I can use it a Co-wash and a rinse out, it detangles my 3A hair well. I know there are some new scents out that I want to try. Have you tried any health food store conditioners?
