Default Conditioners

I am a single mom on a serious budget and I wanna know some good conditioners I can use w/o breaking the bank. I have very thick 4b hair and I need something my hair isnt going to soak up quick.

By breaking the bank, do you mean under $5?

If so, then stock up on Trader Joe's conditioners ($3). the tea tree and the balancing conditioners are awesome! I haven;t tried the citrus conditioner that they sell.

But, if you can manage under $10, I would recommend SheaMoisture ($10). Every once in a while Walgreens will have them on sale BOGO.

If you can get to a TJ Maxx or a Marshalls, then you can get a Giovanni conditioner for $13. It's the big boy though, with the pump (1 liter, I think). All of the Giovanni conditioners are amazing, IMHO.

Hi there! I know what you mean about thick hair -- do you mean rinse out or leave-ins?

My fave cheap ROs:
$5: Garnier Pure and Clean
$5: TreSemme Naturals
$7-8: Giovanni Smooth as Silk
(all at a local drugstore or Walmart/Target)

My fave cheap(er) LIs:
$8-10: SheaMoisture Shea Butter leave in (online only, not the walgreens line/brand)
$10: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie (Walgreens,I use as LI under gel)
$7-8: Giovanni Smooth as Silk (Walmart/Target)

Hope that helps a little.

I have used the shea moisture spray but never used the conditioner but I can't do the leave in those don't work in my hair for some reason it just dries it out.
