"cheap" CG conditioners for CO washes

Aside from getting some Devacurl stuff when I win lotto I'm thinking picking up some of the "cheaper" co's from ebay would be a good idea. I'm also hoping someone mentions a product they sell over here..

What are people's favourites?

I've heard:
White rain - which ones are CG, which work for people?
VO5 - Kiwi and Lime, is that the only one that's good?
Natures Gate - Again, which one?

Any others?
I love vo5 Kiwi Lime for co-wash and if you have it where you are, all of the Suave "naturals" line of conditioners are CG-friendly and are widely used for co-washes. I like the Aloe, Toasted Vanilla and some of the others.

3b/a
Cowash - No Poo, Suave Coconut
Conditioner - One Condition
Leave In - KCKT
Gel - KCCC at the moment
Nature's gate jojoba is good for winter co wash
Beauty without cruelty daily benefits cleans well, I think that's probably a winter product since it does condition nicely too though.
Suave citrus smoothie, Suave totasted vanilla and sugar, pretty much any of the suave naturals
V05 kiwi and lime or V05 passion fruit smoothie
White rain energizing citrus
freeman's papaya and lime overboard shine
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
I love VO5 Passion Fruit smoothie. I heard the NG Aloe Vera is good, but I have not tried that one myself.

Cool! None of those products are available here, but ebay is definitely looking to be an option.

It's not about having what you want, it's about Wanting what you have
Oooooh I have just found some that should be CG:

Natures gate organics (can't find the jojoba one though)
Giovanni
Ecostore
Emma's organics (never heard of it!)
No ordinary moments (ditto!)

Anyone tried these?
Nature's gate jojoba is nice, is that the line that has the asian pear tea or some such? Lush will know she used it and liked it.
The aloe one is popular too.

Suave Milk & Honey
V05 Strawberries & Cream

Money might not buy happiness, but it will buy a shiny red Mustang and you can drive up REAL close to it.

Yep, MH is right, the one I liked from NG is from their Organics Fruit Blend, called Asian Pear and Red Tea, it was on LB's Conditioner Chronicles list. The Aloe did nothing for me, neither did the jojoba to be honest. But I'm a snob for slip. I didn't use any of them for co-washing though. My faves in that category would be Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut, Mango & Peach, and Mixed Berry Smothie.

alot of people seem to like VO5, how is it for dry hair?
Conditioner chronicles list? what's that?

Cool I can get the asian pear and red tea one.

If you don't use it for co-washing, what do you use it for?

You use it as a conditioner, of course.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
Ok, grabbed some lavender & aloe natures gate organics, and some giovanni smooth as silk and direct leave-in.

So the trick with co-washing is using heaps and leaving it on a fair while... hopefully I'll have some success with this tomorrow
Hi Blueberri,
Actually the trick to cowashing is using a Cg friendly condish (preferably a cheap one!) and applying it as you would a shampoo. Focus mostly on scrubbing your scalp with your fingertips, not nails. Cleansing the scalp is what your main objective is. At least that's what I do.

BTW--I loooove VO5 Strawberries and Cream--it's very moisturizing and leaves hair smelling delicious and feeling really clean. Plus it only costs $1.00, sometimes less if it's on sale!

It lasts me about a month.

HTH!
