: Cetrimonium Chloride or Potassium Chloride?
Alberto V05 conditioners contain Cetrimonium Chloride as a surfactant, which supposedly can leave a residue or film on hair even after it is rinsed. Suave conditioners contain Potassium Chloride, which is a form of salt, and that can dry out the hair.
I have used Suave Ocean Breeze as a conditioning wash, but notice it starts to dry my hair out after repeated use.
I have also used Alberto V05 conditioners as a co- wash such as Vanilla Mint, Blackberry Sage, Kiwi Lime, and Strawberry, and I also noticed the "film" or residue after repeated use.
I like the Alberto V05 Strawberry as a rinse out conditioner.
I prefer these two brands over the more expensive cleansing creams because my hair is fine, and I don't need emollients.
Anyone else have issues with these brands of conditioners, and if so, is there anything you do to eliminate those issues? Like clarify once a month with baking soda and apple cider rinse?
