Moisturizing drugstore conditioners

Are there any really moisturizing (but still CG) conditioners from drugstore brands? I also have access to Avalon Organics, Giovanni, and Nature's Gate.

thanks!:)

    I use Giovanni products and I love them. I use 50/50 as my co wash or sometimes Aubrey Organics HR. Then I use their direct leave in and then LA looks gel.
    if luvin KCKT and KCCC is wrong I don't wanna b right

    sell crazy somewhere else...we're all stocked up here.

    My favorite is V05 Moisture Milks Strawberries and Cream. It's one of the best CG conditioners, period...drugstore or not. The fact that it's just around $1 makes it even better, though!

    I like Tigi Moisture Maniac and Natures Gate Herbal (if you don't mind the spicy, earthy scent). I know some curlies on here like the NG Aloe one.

    Modified CG, CJ Rehab, JCWDT, KCKT, VO5 Chamomile Tea Therapy, CJDF, HEBE Gel/Mousse, Bioinfusion Rosemary Mint shampoo, occasional protein

    I'm not sure whether Aussie Moist is CG, but it is a great conditioner.
    Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
    ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
    Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!

    Unfortunately, the one 'cone in it isn't CG. :cry:

    The V05 Tea Therapy line is fantastic! I'm using the vanilla mint one right now but also have used the chamomile one. They are both great, but I like the vanilla mint one just a little bit more. It's only a dollar too!
    3A curls, fine texture, thin (it's always been that way). A few inches past shoulder length and would like it to grow very long.

    Latest routine:
    Sulfate-free shampoo: Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo, Elucence, Bedhead Superstar
    Conditioner: Jessicurl Too Shea conditioner, DermOrganic Masque, Redken All Soft
    Style: DermOrganic Argan Oil Treatment/Serum, Kinky Curly Knot Today leave-in, Kerastase Nectar Thermique, Oyin Hair Dew

    For co washing, I absolutely agree that the VO5 Tea Therapies are wonderful! I also really like Suave Claifying Condish (hard to find in my area) and Suave Toasted Vanilla Sugar.

    For regular conditioning, I really like Aussie 3MM, the original formula in the white bottle. I have read on this board several times that Sally's carries a great dupe of this, same ingredients in a huge bottle for cheap, but I haven't tried it yet.

    L'oreal Vive Pro Nutri Gloss conditioner for medium to long hair that's curly. I use this one. It's CG (no cones), and it really works.

    I second Loreal. It's a great condish. I actually compare my more expensive ones to this. It's got great slip and it's the only one (so far) to leave me with clumps after rinsing out.

    I forgot about the VO5 Chamomile Tea therapy too. It's great for detangling and softening. I actually can't use it all the time or I end up overconditioned and poofy.

    The L'oreal Nutri Gloss stuff is really good. I used it today and my hair is soft and clumpy.
  • ZinniaZinnia Posts: 7,339Registered Users
    a great thread from the general curly hair discussion board:

    CG Conditioner for $10 or less

    It's not supposed to be sold at the drugstore (salon brand, I believe), but it's available there: Biolage hydrating balm. It's the best I've used in quite a while. It's kind of pricey, though... Also, if you can find it at the drugstore, TiGi's Dumb Blonde is amazing as well!

    I am now a big fan of CANTU leave in conditioner. At walmart in the ethnic hair aisle. CHEAP. shea butter

    Ditto. And I can usually find Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose at most natural stores.

    biolage hydrating conditioning balm

    Juicy....does this not make your head itch? I love the biolage products but when ever I use that conditioner, it makes my head itch. Just wondering if you have noticed that.
    Very Curly and Thick hair.
    3a/b.
    I think I have medium hair with normal to high porosity. And I need all the moisture I can get!!

    Currently using:

    C: Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Smoothing
    S: Ouidad CQ/Pureology Hydrate

    LI: AG Fast Food

    Stylers: AG Re:coil (super soak), then CIAB and some CHS CK on top.

    **trying CCCC & Beuticurls LI

    Style: scrunch and finger curl where I see the hair is not clumping well. Diffuse.

    The -cone that you're talking about is probably simethicone. Luckily enough, simethicone isn't -cone, it's a preservative. Check out this thread http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/showthread.php?t=29092&highlight=simethicone for more info on Aussie 3MM
