Default some questions about back to basics products...

I went to Big Lots today to search for the Back to Basics Peach conditioner. Sadly, they had seven other kinds of Back to Basics conditioner, but not peach. Has anyone had good luck with any of the other types, and are any CG friendly?


Also, they had some Back to basics styling products for a dollar fifty each-can't pass that up! Has anyone tried Sunflower Tournesol Creme Mousse-"styling foam for conditioned body, textuer and shine" It does have dimethicone, but it's WAY down on the ingredient list.

I also bought Green Tea Volume Infussing Spray foam "spray on styler for volume, texture and lift." It has shea butter, green tea and ginko. This also has dimethicone way down on the list.

I"m going to try them tomorrow-if I love them, I"m heading back to Big Lots for more.

I don't believe any of the other B2B conditioners were CG-friendly, just the pomegranate one, but I could be wrong.

I was checking these out also. My local Big Lots has a few Back to Basics varieties and they all contained either cyclomethicone or the evil -xane cone. Neither one is water soluble. It's funny that they made one without the cones.

If you see the green tea gel, that's supposed to be nice.
All the other conditioners look great until I get to the cone part. I don't know why the peach is the only one without it. I guess because it's for dryer hair.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

Hey Sherry,

I actually really like the B2B Jasmine curl refresh! It is actually my fave regular conditioner. It has no cones! It makes my hair soft, very shiny and I love the smell! The gel that matches it is supposed to be pretty good as well. The peach condish that u are referring to-the old formula was called pomegranite peach. The re-formulated one is supposed to be pretty similar and is just called pomegranite. The new formula still has peach in the ingredients list though.

B2B Green Tea Gel is my favourite gel at the moment, and I use it every time. It is very hard hold so when i diffuse my hair looks thin and crispy, but then i scrunch with a pomade and my curls pop out and it looks lovely! really good at controlling frizz, lasts till third day and doesnt make my hair feel dry
