Firefox: I checked the ingredients of the bodyshop conditioners and got intimidated by them lol. The banana conditioner was the only one that seemed ok. I've decided to start mixing things up myself. I'll use the Curly kinks as the basic conditioner and add the penetrating oils and maybe humectants. How about rice bran oil? I've noticed that lots of products seem to have them.

Body Shop Rainforest Moisture is a conditioner often used by curlies as I said. Banana conditioner looks CG friendly, but you very rarely see that used so maybe it's not that great as a leave in - not sure I'd want to leave fruit puree in my hair!!

The oils that penetrate are rich in lauric acid (coconut, babassu, palm kernel) or oleic acid (olive, avocado, argan). Good luck with the DIY, it's fun!
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
