Anyone else can't use White Rain conditioners?

This week I have CO washed with White Rain Apple Blossom and my hair is dry. It has not been dry yet before this on the CO routine so I'm sure it's White Rain. It must not be moisturizing enough, although I know the wash part of the CO should not be moisturizing. Anyone else have any problems like this? Are VO5 and Suave conditioners generally a little more moisturizing?

somewhere between 2c/3a, I think

no longer on CG routine

s/c daily
deep oil treatments at least twice a week: olive oil or coconut oil once, and Ojon R.T. once

    That's so funny! I'm not able to use VO5 bc of the proteins and Suave isn't moisturizing enough for me. OTOH, today I discovered that I can use the White Rain. It's so weird. I've notice with many conditioners, if I spike it w/a little honey I get more moisture from it. HTH.

    I don't know if they're more moisturizing, but I like suave and vo5 better than white rain.

    Thanks guys for your responses.

    teshon - the honey trick sounds good, never thought of trying that. I have a couple of White Rain conditioners I still have to get through and I'll add some honey when I use it to use it up.

    JuicyTube - glad I'm not the only one who doesn't care for White Rain.

    I used some for the first time, and I don't think my hair likes it either--or at least doesn't like it in the fall.

    I've only used the tropical coconut one and i must say i love it. My dad picked it up for me..i asked him to get the suave one and he wasn't paying enough attention and came home with this one.

    Naturally i thought it was going to suck, but to my surprise it gives pretty good moisture and it detangles beautifully. I still like my suave coconut, but this one is def. a staple.

    Maybe I'd have better luck with White Rain in summer, I know there are things I can't use in the winter that I can in summer for whatever reason.

    The Coconut one does sound good. I have only tried Apple Blossom and Extra Body ones as of yet, and was not impressed with either. I have the citrus one too to try. I, too, like the Suave Coconut so if it would compare to that maybe I should try it.

    White rain made my hair very dry, and I used it as a co-wash in the middle of summer when it was very humid. I felt like it didn't rinse cleanly. I also tried out the same bottle at the start of winter and it still made my hair dry-city. I prefer Suave out of the 3, but have since switched to using healthfood store brands (e.g. Trader Joe's Nourish, FIN), which are not much more costly, but a lot more moisturizing.

    I agree about the healthfood store brands, Kiss My Face anyways. I have had great luck with it. But there's only one store in our town that carries it and lots of times they're out so I look to cheaper ones like Suave, VO5 and had hopes for White Rain.
    We can't get the Trader Joe's conditioners in Canada, but can I ask what FIN is?
