There are TONS of conditioners out there- it depends on what you need. A good one available locally is the Shea Moisture line- you can usually find it at Target. Their moisture retention condish is good. I was not that crazy about the deep moisture mask, but many are. Check out curl mart, and youtube, and search conditioner names, and check out reviews! BTW your hair is lovely. I did the BC in Feb of this year, and I don't regret it either

I love the Shea Moisture line. I use the Moisture Rentention as a leave-in but I find it's too expensive to use as my cowash because I need a lot of conditioner to detangle. So for that I love TJ Nourish and Spa. Sometimes I use Tresemme Naturals. Before I went strict CG I was using Aussie Moist which is a great moisturizer and has wonderful slip.

So, you use vo5 as a cowash but what r u using for rinse out conditioner?
the shea moisture restorative conditioner is good, the garnier fructis triple nutrition and the gvp conditioning balm.

Cowash is when you use conditioner in place of shampoo to actually wash your hair. While that is more moisturizing than shampoo, you still need actual conditioner to condition your hair...hence the rinse out conditioner.

So i take it that you don't use an additional conditioner on your hair? That might be why you need to use so much of the vo5. The garnier fructis is a really good rinse out conditioner to use, so is the Tresumme Naturals, Trader Joes Nourish Spa, Tigi Moisture Manic, Aussie Moist and a few others.

good luck
