I am new to CG and after reading about the evilness of silicones I switched from Pantene Hydrating Curls to GVP conditioning balm with VO5 strawberry moisturizing conditioner as a cowash.
I saw a difference immediately.
My dry hair is soft and my curls are looser.
My hair is still a bit frizzy but I attribute that mostly to the weather...
But I think GVP is great!
