Sherrybp, I've found that the Activate Hydrating conditioner is one of the most moisturizing drugstore conditioners that I've used. I've found it in both Walgreens & Ulta, & both stores run a BOGOF special on it quite often.
It's not as cheap as VO5, for example, but I only need a small amount of the Activate. In fact, I rotate other conditioners, because I will get overconditioned using just the Activate.
For some reason, I can't use the VO5 condishes - they make me totally frizzy. I think it's the stearylkonium (sp?) chloride ingredient, because the Suave brand works MUCH better for ME & Suave doesn't contain that ingredient.
