Who Knows of an affordable Conditioner No Dimethicone?

I used to use Tresemme Vitamin C and E. I loved it because it had all natural and herbal ingredients. Also it had no "cones" at all. Also it was only @ $3 for a huge bottle. I use so much conditioner everytime I shower. I go through a huge bottle at least every two weeks. So, much to my dismay, Tresemme recently "Imporved" their conditioner. Well, I read the label and most of the natural ingredients are gone and several cones and alcohols took their places. HELP! That conditioner was my staple! Anyone know of a great, cheap, cone-free conditioner?

    Have you tried Suave Naturals? Very inexpensive drugstore brand in several scents. 22 ounce bottle is about $2.50. I've gotten it on sale for much less than that.

    Here's the ingredients for the coconut version: Water (Aqua), Cetyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Potassium Chloride, Fragrance (Parfum), Distearyldimonium Chloride, Disodium EDTA, Glycerin, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Propylene Gylcol, Silk Amino Acids, Honey (Mel), Nettle (Urtica Dioica) Extract, Rosemary (Rosmarinus Officinalis) Extract, Coconut (Cocoa Nucifera) Extract
    Couple of inches past shoulder length 3A. Shampoo every 3rd or 4th day w/ baby shampoo; Tigi Fashionista conditioner; back to Condition 3-in-1 mousse . Alternate days water rinse, conditioner and mousse.

    I second the Suave Naturals conditioners. My favorites (protein-free) are "Lavender and Lilac" and "Aloe and Waterlily". Alberto VO5 Calming Chamomile Tea is pretty good too.

    Trader Joe's is a chain of small grocery stores that carry natural and gourmet foods. It's not everywhere, so there may not be any where you live.
