Default the Suave Naturals Coconut conditioner is lighter than Giovanni TTTT conditioner?

the Suave Naturals Coconut conditioner is lighter than Giovanni TTTT conditioner right? I'm trying to figure out which one to use first.
And which one should I use as the leave in conditioner? I have 2b hair I think.

Also, is the Herbel Essences Totally Twisted Gel okay to use after the shower?

I'm washing it soon, so please answer if you know. Thanks!

I know most people use the suave naturals as a "cleanser", but I've only ever tried GTTTT conditioner. Its not really moisturising but it would probalby be ok as a rinse out. This may help with your decision

And this has a list of CG approved products along the left-hand side. http://curlgirljourney.blogspot.com/...-products.html

Hope they help.

Does cleanser mean the first one, which you wash out? I'm a little confused.

Yeah... although I assumed you were washing both out. (I didn't read carefully enough)

I know most people use the suave naturals to clean their scalp, to some extent because it is cheap and they use alot to cleanse their scalp. Its also not as moisturising as the GTTT condtioner, which is good if you scalp tends towards oily. You cover your whole scalp with the conditioner, then massage it as long as you can, then rinse it out, also massaging to get rid of any oil, dead skin cells, etc. as you rinse

Then if you need a more moisturising conditioner on the ends, put that conditioner on the mid-shaft to ends. Then you can either put a little bit more of that in and not rinse it out, or use a separate leave-in conditioner, add product, etc. If your hair doesn't need that much moisture, you can skip the rinse out conditioner on then ends, or the leave in, or both.

It really depends on your hair and takes a bit of experimenting. You can't go too wrong.

Try reading the threads with the basics of cg/for newbies... I can't find one in my bookmarks right now
