Welcome! Suave Naturals, V05 and Tresemme Naturals are all used for conditioner only washing, I would not spend money needlessly on something you wash down the drain.

Work on your porosity and bleach damage with overnight coconut oil soaks, hydrolysed protein treatments, ceramides and panthenol. Olive and avocado oil also penetrate and may help reduce porosity, others oils and butters mainly do not and some will weigh the hair down.

Hydrolysed protein is also beneficial for fine haired wavies and curlies and can help boost curls, coconut oil also helps protect from bleach damage.

GVP conditioning balm is high in propylene glycol which is a humectant, I would avoid or limit that in high or low dews or if you have an issue with glycerin (another humectant). You can use the same conditioner as rinse out and leave in.
2a-2c, medium texture, porous/ colour treated. Three years CG, growing out mechanical and chemical damage = breakage and very high porosity. Past armpit length heading for waist.

CO-wash: Inecto coconut
Treatments: Komaza Matani, coconut oil, Hairveda Sitrinillah
Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss ultimate volume, Inecto argan
Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Boots Essentials gel
Experimenting with: going back to basics
