What is it about VO5 conditioners

Like Tree1Likes

What is it about VO5 conditioners that they replenish the hair so well? They're choc ful-o unnatural ingredients. I happen to be one of those people who can't leave it on my scalp because it'll itch like no tomorrow (it has actually brought me to tears). So added in a spray bottle is a no no for me. But when I put that stuff in my hair during a shower all of my coils just pop out every where and my hair looks so healthy. They make for a clean rinsing cleanser and a very moisturizing dc when mixed with honey and olive oil. Lastly but definitely not leastly they're dirt cheap. That's why I can't stop using them even though I know they're bad for me.

Oh VO5 what a tangled web you weave but you detangle my hair so well.
So no one else has this proplem with the VO5?

My skin is pretty sensitive but I thought at least one person would understand. Guess I was wrong...
I love V05 Moisture Milks for my Co wash, or even an over night baggie. Love it!

I am really stuck on 2 cone free GF conditioners but I keep an ARSENAL of V05 and Suave Natural conditioners under my bathroom sink in the cabinet. TONS OF THEM. It's ridiculous how I have to buy like 3 or 4 every time I go to the darn supermarket of drug store. LOL!

What may be causing your itchy scalp is called Methylchloroisothiazolinone. It's a preservative found some cosmetic products that are ment to be in contact with the skin for a amount of small time and rinsed off.

It basically has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. It can be a skin irritant for some people and was removed from a lot of cosmetics for that reason except for rinse-off products like certain skin creams and hair products that are meant to be rinsed complete off specifically like conditioners. And Suave AND V05 do indeed contain this ingredient in MANY of their conditioners.

I had the same problem with certain Suave Naturals and VO5's at first because I was using them so much as leave ins because I was so nuts about how nice they made my hair look and feel. I stopped using them as leave ins so much and when I do I am careful to try to not get very much on my scalp. I find using a spray bottle helps me control getting it mostly on my hair instead of my scalp.
Nope, you aren't alone, my hair actually hated V05 Moisture Milks Strawberries and Cream condish. I won't be trying anymore of their line.

I use VO5 and Suave too! VO5 is a great way for me to co-wash the henna from my hair, and I love Suave Cocnut for my daily co-washing. I would be like a junkie going through withdrawl if they ever discontinued Suave Coconut! LOL I buy 3 bottles at a time and once I am down to a bottle and a half of Suave - I have to go get 3 more bottles - a shame...I know.

Anyway I just recently got the TJ nourish and it works really well as a leave in for my wash and goes. I just seal with a mix of olive oil and Africa's Best Ultimate Herbal Oil and my hair is very moisturized. I thought I would be too protein sensitive for it but I've been using it for a week without any adverse effects. It's so natural so I'm hoping that my good luck lasts. I still use the VO5 as a detangler and curl definer but I just bought some Suave Ocean Breeze and I find it much more moisturizing than any of the VO5 conditioners that I've tried. Though I only used it as a cowash and not a detangler. I think I'll make a thread comparing the two soon.

I've never used Suave, but loads of curlies rave about the Naturals line.

I use to use vo5, but, it made my head itch. I've recently stopped Paul Mitchell foaming pomade, because it has laureth sulfate in it. I don't know what to use now. My dentist told me it was an irritant when I told him my toothpaste bothered me. I use a toothpaste w/o it and no more problem. Now I quit using the foaming pomade and my hair.....ugh! It's funny I found this website when looking up vo5 ingredients and saw your link.
I quit using vo5 years ago becauase it made my head itch. I found this article when looking up it's ingrredients as my dentist told me that my laurenth sulfate is an irritant. I was wondering if that why vo5 itched my scalp. I love paul mitchell foaming pomade, but, it makes my head itch, lately and I noticed it has that ingredient, too. I don't know what to use any longer. Many things just don't softly hold my curls.
I thought I was the only one that it made itch

Vo5 conditioners are not meant to be leavein so if they make your hair itch or burn, don't be so surprised. I once used it as a curl styler and while my hair looked nice, I did fell a subtle burning sensation on my scalp. But they make excellent RINSE OUT/detangling conditioners.
I actually think they should start selling V05 Moisture Milks Strawberries and Cream condish as a cleanser because it get my hair so clean without drying it out. I never considered using it as a leaving due to the ingredients and I am glad I didn't because I have a sentive and reactive scalp so it would have been awful. I have no complains as far as rinsing it out though!

I've become a huge fan of VO5, namely the Blackberry Sage Tea Therapy Conditioner, I also bought the shampoo to use before deep condtioning or Henna or Cassia, and I noticed that the lather and way my hair felt during the washing was completely...wow...like buttah...anyway...the conditioner is great for cowashing then following with a more substantial conditioner and washing out Henna/Cassia or rinsing I think...

Today I tried it like I would have used Wen or Hair One thinking it can't be all that bad...the slip is nice, my scalp is slightly itchy...but the main thing is I guess it ran down my back as I was in the shower and ate me UP...it took a good while to calm that itchy/bitey/stingy feeling down...kinda hurt my feelings...still love it though...it's good to have boundaries in relationships sometimes...
It's never made my hair itch and I've been using them even before I went natural, but I've never used it as a leave in so maybe that's why. I love them because they have amazing slip and because they're dirt cheap!! I recently bought a different conditioner because I wanted to try something, but it was 6 dollars for a bottle that's going to finish quickly so I might just switch back to v05 conditioners.
It makes my scalp itch if left in too! Shea cashmere is an HG rinse out as is suave coconut. I think it's the stearalkonium chloride, cuz the methyl.....preservative in suave, if left in does not make me itch or burn...just a thought...my skin is very reactive, (nut oils, triglycerides, excessive essential oil...), so my hair has to be picky on behalf of my scalp and face

This is kind is nuts. My sensitive skin is allergic to everything. So much so that I even started making my own soap, moisturizer and cosmetics. I can use both Sauve and V05 with no adverse reactions. It is sold at the Dollar Tree where I live so I bought both when I started the curly girl method so as not to invest a lot of money if I didn't like what it did for my hair, and since it works so well I see no reason to stop using.
