    I like to use Burt's Bees Very Shiny Conditioner as a cleanser then I use Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose or White Camelia (most people don't like the smell of this one. I don't really see what the problem is.) to moisturize and detangle.

    I've found that using one conditioner as a cleanser rinsing it out and then applying another to detangle gets the best results before styling because you don't run the risk of not cleansing enough or depriving your hair of much needed moisture.

    Burt's Bees Very Shiny Conditioner has Grapefruit and Sugar beet extracts as well as tons of coconut and citrus oils. This stuff gets your hair CLEAN but its not a moisturizer by any means. The Aubrey Conditioners are my favorite all natural deep moisturizers.

    TJ Nourish is very good. It worked for me until I became protein sensitive. Now that I'm no longer protein senstive it may well work again. Currently I use GVP Biolage Conditioning Balm. It's thick and lets me use a lot of water with it.

    My favorite is Mill's Creek Organic Jojoba Conditioner. It detangles my hair very well (and I've got hugely thick 3C/4A curls!)
    It's natural and at $4-5 for 16 oz, it's also a good value.

    I'm a big fan of the trader joes nourish spa. I also recently tried aubrey organic Honeysuckle rose watered down to co-wash and it worked well to, but it's a bit to expensive for that for me. Trader joes is good and the price is right:thumbright:.
    Currently:Alaffia Shea & Coconut Enriching Shampoo, Alaffia Virgin Coconut & Shea Enriching Hair Lotion, Qhemet Amla Olive Heavy Cream, Qhemet Honeybush Tea Gel.

    Sally's has some stuff by the gallon that I keep meaning to look at. I've seen it recommended on another board but no idea if its CG or not. I do know it's $7 for an entire gallon.

    You're welcome!
    (Actually, I'd never heard of it either until about a year ago, I happened to come across it at a Ross for Less store. I'm hooked!) :flower:
