CHEAP silicone free conditioner

Trader Joe's Nourish Spa - has amazing slip and moisturizes my hair like no other! I love it so much that I had another forum member (from another forum) buy 10 for me and ship them to my house because I don't have a TJ where I live. It's that serious
Anybody know if the GF triple nutrition is better than the pure clean???

Oh, TN is 'cream' in color vs. PN which is white in color (doesn't really matter, but it's a difference to note).

I would need to give TN a couple more WNGs before I make a final determination though. It's in my rotation for this week, so I can report back.
hi. i'm a product junkie! so many products, so little time...

Do I have an old kind with the same name my bottle says
Aqua/Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Amodimethicone, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Parfum/Fragrance, Cetyl Esters, Lauryl PEG/PPG 18/18 Methicone, Methylparaben, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Niacinamide, Pyridoxine HCI, Trideceth 12, Citric Acid, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Chlorhexidine Dihydrochloride, Cetrimonium Chloride, Linalool, Butylphenyl Methypropional, Citrus Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extractand so does drugstore.com
I could just have an old bottle but that's why I stopped using it worked great though




I think their Garnier Fructis Fortifying Cream Conditioner, Sleek & Shine is the only other one that does not have 'cones.

Tresemme Naturals and GFTN are my absolute FAVORITE conditioners. I use the Triple Nutrition as my regular leave in/styler but I've never tried using TN the same way. Has anyone here used TN as a leave in/styler?

I'm kind of wary of doing so because it has regular alcohol in the formula. But I'd be interested to hear from you ladies on how it has worked for your hair as a leave in. Thanks in advance.

Okay thanks, I will go and check to see if they have the recent bottles when I run out, I hope they do cause I loved how the old kind use to moisturize and clump my curls

Oh! No one mentioned Giovanni Smooth As Silk Technically it's not as cheap as the other or as easily found at just any store but it's still qualifies as inexpensive. Online you can get it for under $5 per bottle on the ground (at whole foods, etc) it will cost about $8. Awesome awesome cowash conditioner.
