My hair doesn't like any of the AO condishes as DTs, even HSR, which I like as a cowash. For heavy condishes, CJ Rehab is THE BEST. My hair is low porosity, protein/glycerin sensitive. The Rehab moisturizes from root to tip! For a lighter condish, Elucence is great, and my hair doesn't mind the bit of protein in it.

CurlyCowgirly I too thought I was one of few with this problem! We should all start a club!

As far as I know, it's impossible for my hair to be over-conditioned, but at the same time I have to be very careful with oils or the occasional silicone serum b/c it gets greasy/stringy easily. Doesn't seem like it is when it''s wet, but when I blow-dry/straighten I notice it. In the shower, my hair takes a few minutes to get fully soaked. It doesn't suck in water easily...that makes it porous, right? And porous hair likes moisture more than protein doesn't it? (I need a memory refresher pleassseee!)
Porous hair wets easily and dries quickly (without product). Non porous hair is hard to wet and takes a long time to dry. Yours sounds nonporous. check out this curl chemist article on porosity.

Wow, I really need to spend more time out here reading. I learn so much with each thread I read. I have three little girls and this post has helped me understand my youngest, obviously pourous hair much better.

Thanks!

Tresemme Thermal Recovery conditioner is very moisturizing/detangling/amazing if you like 'cones. It's actually getting too heavy in this hot, humid weather so I'm going to try Dove's frizz conditioner soon. Aubrey Organics AOHR was pretty nice for me, too. Expensive, though. Aubrey Organics White Camellia conditioner was the only conditioner that left me greasy no matter what, but maybe your hair would react better to it.

Default I thought it was just me!

I've been wondering for MONTHS now why my hair (which didn't see dry at all before I went CG) has been having issues! I tried spritz&condish on a whim and VOILA! It's like it finally made the conditioner go INTO my hair instead of just sitting on top of it! But now I still need to find an awesome conditioner, because none of the ones I've tried (GVPCB, AOHR, and SheaMoisture) REALLY seem to do the trick! Thanks for all the ideas, guys (and for letting me know I'm not alone in this weird-hair thing!)

I'm the same - fine hair that loves heavy moisture. I think it's bc I'm highly porous.

I haven't experimented with a lot of them - I made a promise to myself that I'd steer clear of expensive brands.

My fave is GVPCB, and if I want a DT I'll mix that with some EVOO, honey, and a splash of ACV. (Sometimes another condish, too, like perhaps SM's masque.). It makes the condish suddenly so much richer!!

And yes, a pre-poo or spritz and condish makes a huge difference for me, as well! And I'll throw a ton of LI and some oil on top of that!

Jessicurl Deep Conditioining Treatment is one of the heaviest, most moisturizing conditioners for my fine-textured yet thick hair. A fairly distant second would be GVP Conditioning Balm. (I tend to have the latter on hand more often simply because it's super inexpensive and easy to buy at Sally's). I'll be placing a Jessicurl order soon (once all the Christmas bills are a faint memory!)

I know a lot of people don't like this one but DevaCurl Heaven in Hair is the heaviest conditioner I have ever used. I tend to be heavy handed with conditioners and I prefer very creamy/heavy conditioners in general. However, I had to be sparing with the Heaven in Hair when I used it because it would leave me over moisturized (something previously believed to be impossible).
