Favoirite Conditioner for Washing?

UP LisaUP Lisa Posts: 98Registered Users
Hi. For those of you who do CO washes, have you found a conditioner that really cleans well for you? One that doesn't weigh down the hair, but actually does moisturize?

So far I'm liking Suave Citrus Smoothie. I also like VO5 Kiwi and Lime Squeeze, but only use it once a week in case it might be drying.

    Hey Lisa-
    I rotate between Suave milk and honey, citrus, and VO5 Kiwi. I try to use the VO5 on the days when I am oilier. Do you also condition your ends when you CO wash? I do-if I don't, I am really tangly. I don't seem to have a problem with drying except in certain parts, and I think that's from hairspray. :( I noticed you said in aonther post that your waves drooped. Did you use the Gel/Awe with a gel on top? I've never used the stuff, but maybe gel would give a little hold? I emailed Jessie to see if her products would work for me, and she recommended squirting [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Gelebration-Spray-p-101.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-gelebration-spray]Gelebration[/buylink] in your hand first, then distributing it in the hair. She also recommended a small( a pea or 1/2 pea sized) amount of [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Confident-Coils-Styling-Solution-p-116.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-confident-coils-styling-solution]CCSS[/buylink] in the palm first, then spray [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Gelebration-Spray-p-101.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-gelebration-spray]Gelebration[/buylink] on it, then scrunch in hair. She said that might give more wave enhancement. Also, do you clip up your roots? that might keep the weight of your hair from pulling down your waves. HTH-as if I'm some kind of expert! :roll: I'm struggling, too!

    Thanks for the info, Barelyacurl. For me, the Milk & Honey seems a little heavy. Harder to rinse out. I still plan to try more of the VO5 conditioners.

    I have been using Pantene Deep Treatment for colored hair. It comes in a tube. I would not recommend it, I think it is really weighing my hair down. I've also learned that it's full of cones, so cross it off your list. Besides, it costs about eight times as much as Suave and V05!

    I like the Suave Aloe Vera, but I haven't tried the Sea Breeze- I didn't really like the smell!

    I like the Suave Naturals Mango&Peach, as well as the Tropical Coconut, but if you're a 2a all over, then the Trop. Coconut might be too heavy.

    Are ALL the Suave Naturals cone free?
  • UP LisaUP Lisa Posts: 98Registered Users
    I think so, but I'm not positive.

    I looked at your pictures. Your hair looks a lot like mine except for the color.

    Now I'm trying to use up some Garnier Fructis conditioner, I don't remember which one. I think it's too heavy for a 2a, and it's not cg friendly. It smells great, though, I'll give it that!
