Default Conditioner recs for 2c-3a

Hi there,

I have very long 2c-3aish hair (it actually runs more 3a with very defined ringlets that are a little tighter than normal, quarter inch to half inch in diameter, but the length weighs it out to 2c-3a), and I'm doing a 'poo free method. I'm looking for a good generic-ish brand conditioner for the poo free method that will give me the luxe shiny effect that conditioner can give. I'm currently doing Pantene for curls (moisture), any suggestions? Miracle products?

I have no idea how good it is, because I've only just started, but I found Suave Naturals on sale at CVS this week for $1.50 (with CVS card). The VO5 tea therapy was on sale for $0.89. So yeah, I bought several of each.

I've heard good things about both so I figured that was a good inexpensive choice to start with.

Tresemme naturals is a good one. I also have very long hair and this didnt weigh it down. However if you clarify what exactly you want to use it for (cowash, rinse out, or leave in) and include your hair properties you will get better recommendations

Suave Naturals is a good, cheap cowash option, and I second Tresemme Naturals as a rinse out. That stuff has great slip. Also, check out Sallys Generic Value Product Conditioning Balm--it's popular and is super moisturizing.
