Question any suggestions for a heavy conditioner?

so my MOP Mixed Greens (loved it) is running out and I tried Natralia Nourish Avocado and Jojoba. It was good at first but over the last week my hair has been looking a lot drier.

Does anyone have any recommendations for heavy/moisturising conditioner besides MOP? Preferably something that's easy to find...

Have you tried MOP Extreme Moisture? I got a tube at Marshalls and really like it.

perhaps try ... biolage conditioning balm or aubrey organic Honeysuckle rose (if you're hair likes oils). Mind you i find these too heavy to use too regulary because my hair is fine

I love the honeysuckle rose conditioner. It is very heavy in a deeply moisturizing kind of way.

Cool thanks.

I had tried the AOHR a few years ago and found it made my hair greasy. I just couldn't get it all out.

The Biolage balm sounds good. Will have a look for it next time I'm shopping.

I just read this article about winter and protein which would explain why the Natralia Nourish didn't work for me. My hair must be wanting more moisture and less protein.

Another vote for Biolage Conditioning Balm - pricey, but worth it. Where's everyone getting the Aubrey Organics from? All this time I thought it was only sold in America.

You can get it in Melbourne from

Prahran Health Foods
201 Commercial Rd, Prahran, VIC 3181
Ph: (03) 9827 5983

They don't always have all AO products in stock but if you call up they'll tell you if they have what you're looking for and put it aside for you.

There is an Australian supplier of AO here
i found the conditioners too "oily" though their protein one was decent.. enough moisture and protein.
