What do you think of this combo?

What do you think? Does anybody else use it? I know they're pretty basic, but I've heard they're good and I happen to have them all. I'm going to try using them tomorrow.

Co-Wash: Vo5 Mint Tea "Clarifying" Conditioner (it might be vanilla mint. I forget. Sorry.)
Conditioner: Suave Naturals Coconut Conditioner
Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Hair Gel

I'm also going to pick up some tea tree oil when I can to help with my head. Can you get it at Walmart/Target?

    Why do you need tea tree oil???? Thats kind of like an antiseptic. Are you look for a moisturinzing oil??

    The combo sounds good, maybe you can leave a little conditioner in as a leave in then apply your gel..

    Actually it was recommended to me on a previous thread. Sometimes my flake can be kind of flaky (though not exactly in a dandruff-y way), and that's what the person recommended. I don't remember who. Hmm. I'm not sure what exactly I need. But I figured it was worth a shot anyway. :D

    Hmmmm tea tree oil is really strong maybe you can mix it in with the mint conditioner.

    Are You CG??? I think Paul Mitchell makes a tea tree shampoo

    Have you tired ACV rinse??

    Well, It was recommended that I only use a little and that I mix that little bit into my conditioner. Yes, I am CG, though I was weak and shampooed a little while ago. No, I haven't tried an ACV rinse. I could try that, though. How much do you use to rinse? Thanks for helping!

    Try using 1 tablespoon ACV per cup of water, rinse hair with it, then rinse again with plain water. If I don't rinse the second time, I get a nasty ACV odor after my hair's dry, although this is not the case for everyone.
