    I'm kinda new to co-washing but in the past I used Suave Fruit Smoothie in Peach and I loved it, it smelled really good too :lick: I cant find it anymore.... so I tried Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine last night and I couldn't keep my hands out my hair today, it feels so silky.

    Everyone is different...but two conditioners that really give me slip in co-washes are HE (Herbal Essence) Long Term Relationship and Suave Humectant

    I use White Rain Tropical Coconut with my henna gloss. It has great slip.
    For my Co-wash, I have been using Herbal Essence Long Term and Breaks Over, both are really great.

    Any and everything Herbal Essences! The three that I rotate are LTR, Hello Hydration, and Dangerously Straight.

    I also apply their leave in (LTR or Break's Over). Although I must say that I like the BO leave in better because it's creamier and more moisturizing.

    So far Aubrey Organics conditioners work the best for me. I don't need to use a detangler or a leave-in afterwards, and my hair always feels soft and moistuized after air-drying.

    Suave Milk & Honey was pretty good too, but now that it's gone :sad:, I haven't found any other cheapie that can do the trick.

    I have used just about every conditioner out there, from cheap to expensive...however, I have yet to find another conditioner that actually cleanses, moisturizes, detangles and strengthens your hair all in one. I would NEVER be without my WEN:look:. The only other conditioners I buy is jessiecurl...but that's another story.

    I have no idea how to determine a good co-wash since I wash in braids and wash it out thoroughly. However, I have fond memories of my VO5 Tea Therapy hmmm....

    Suave Humectant I have to dilute b/c it is way too thick and I do not want any built up on my scalp.

    For me, any cheapie will do really....I get them at Building 19 whichever is ONE DALLAH!

    For those of you who mix with baking soda can explain why? Baking soda I thought was to wash away build up right? Well if your washing or combining the B.S. with a product with build up...how does it work then?

    White Rain Tropical Coconut is the best CO washing con I've EVER used!

    V05 Strawberries & Champagne (?) is a close second, but the WRTC is thicker and deposits more moisture into my hair.

    girl, u really make me wanna buy this WEN. i was watching that infomercial the other morning and it just looked so yummy. all in one! the reviews; some people said it left their hair over moisturized or limp. then they said when u get down to last bit of WEN, the pump starts working. i would still shell out the $28 as opposed to the trial and error of cheapies. help me decide! cuz i want to purchase today. if not im just goin all ayurvedic and gettin a shikaiki bar and calling it a day, but i really want to stop having strawlike hair after wash days....

    p.s. i'm 4a/b apl....

    I'd have to say...hands down: Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Conditioner!!

    It's great at leaving my hair soft, moisturized and is great detangler...I use it for co-washes, detangling, moisturising leave-in, base for my deep conditioning treatments!!

    My hair is very dry and thirsty so if this conditioner works for me, it will work for anybody!!!

    It has organic ingredients and only costs $2.49-16.9oz bottle

    Ingredients: Purified water, organic rosemary oil, organic valencia orange citrus, organic mango, organic lemongrass, organic ginko biloba, organic echinacea, organic willow bark, organic sea kelp, organic chamomile flower, organic textured soy protein, organic lavender, organic grapefruit citrus, tocopherol (vitamin E), acetamide MEA, cetyl alcohol, ctric acid, methylparaben, propylparaben, botanical fragrance

    It's the best silicone-free cheapie conditioner I have tried...I used to use Suave Tropical Coconut and VO5 but once I tried TJ's I could not go back!!!

    Do the Herbal Essences conditioners have cones?

    I'm asking b/c a lot of people love them but I have to avoid them b/c I do not use shampoo.....

    yup, basically the whole line has cones.
    creamy, smooth, delicious cones :lick:

    i don't think you need to completely avoid them, though, just make sure that you use a clarifying conditioner when you feel your hair has a bit too much build up. :yup:

    LOL @ "creamy, smooth, delicious cones"...Do you really htink that a clarifying co-wash would get rid of the cone buildup?

    So if I add baking soda to my conditioner to clarify, I will not have cone buildup?

    oops, typo: i meant to just type clarify, instead of clarifying conditioner. just baking soda + water should do the trick, since you're avoiding shampoo.

    ooh, but that baking soda in your conditioner wouldn't be too bad of an idea.

    you should only really be concerned about cones if you're slapping them all over your hair in a serum every day and not washing. i clarify 2x a month, and i use cones in my conditioners, and a serum filled with cones just about 3x a week to finish my hair before airdrying or rollersetting.

    Well I have dry 4a/b hair, and it is very hard to over moisturize...WEN is very moisturizing but it has never over moisturized my hair.

    Yeah, the pump does start to act kindof flaky when you get down to the end!
