Anybody seen the two new vo5 conditioners? New Clarifying!

OH man, I need to find this! I really can't wait to read your official review for this! *fidgetting*
3a/3b thick coarse WL dark brown hair. CG/Mod CG since: 5/4/05. Current products: Right now my hair is in such a tizzy over this winter weather we are hving that nothing really seems to be working. I need a haircut.
I'll post about it as soon as I use it tomorrow AM. It would be awesome if it had nice slip and cleaned well...will be my HG co-wash for sure. The shampoo was a really pretty blue color...off topic, but I thought it was pretty.

Ooh, DominicanaHeat, I feel your pain! I loooooooove vanilla and peppermint, and they're even better together, and this could be cleansing enough so I could co-wash and be happy and it is sooooo hard to sit on my hands waiting to hear what hockeymomof3 says.

Speaking of which, how does it feel to know that curlies are once again waiting with bated breath for your next review?

(BTW, how's that cone-free curl vive condish going? Or has it been abandoned for the Regis OO?)
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
wild-sasparilla -- (OH I have actually been meaning to pick up the TJ's nourish poo cause I have the condish and like that!) I know, I hope I do a good review tomorrow!! Oh and the vive condish...I absolutely love the consistency, but I can't get past the smell...I'll have to give it another try sometime.

I went to the VO5 site but apparently it hasn't been updated in a while...they are still showing the old packaging and none of the new products.

Same with Suave's site...they don't show their new gels.

You detangle with your co wash conditioner? I always wait until the rinse out. I suppose that makes sense though since you need it to clean all the hair not just the stuff not tangled. But then I dont' get bad tangles usually.

I'll be watching to see how it works. I'm already making plans to go get both new ones tomorrow. I mean as long as I'm out for the vanilla mint I might as well get the other too right?

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
For me, for detangling, it depends, if the co wash I am using is slippery enough, I sometimes won't use a heavier conditioner and just do a 1-step co-wash/condition.

Darn . . . two Bartell's and one QFC later and neither of these new conditioners are in my posession. The quest will continue tomorrow. Anyone seen these at something like a Walgreen's or Target?

If I could put as much energy into my work as I do into discovering, collecting and trying hair products lately . . . I would be so productive.

My hair has been feeling dry and looking undefined and bushy lately (due to extremely cold and dry weather, plus maybe it's just bored with the same old products).
So, thanks to some recommendations at NC I bought the following a couple weeks ago -
VO5 vanilla mint clarifying
VO5 grapefruit mandarin volumizing
Back to Basics pomegranate peach replenishing
Back to Basics body boosting

I condition wash with one of the VO5's and then add one of the Back to Basics and leave a little in. My hair has definitely perked up and looks and feels much better.
Yay for new cheap products!

I got the VO5's at the grocery store (Giant Eagle). I haven't looked for them elsewhere so I don't know if our Kmart or Eckards/CVS have them yet.
In Western PA
Found NC in 2004. CG since 2-05, going grey since 9-05. 3B with some 3A.
Hair texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.

I used the new vanilla mint clarifying condish to co-wash this morning --
First, it's thin just like the other vo5 conditioners. I used quite a bit to massage my scalp and cover my hair and ran a bit of water through to make it sudsy feeling (not really sudsy just enough where I can massage my scalp without it tangling my hair). The smell was not strong at all and it really reminded me of the regular tea therapy for the most part..it smells a little perfumey or something, but it smells good, just not the vanilla/mint mix I was hoping for. As for the clarifying, I don't think it is as clarifying as say the kiwi lime -- my hair felt "softer" using this conditioner vs. the kiwi lime, and it felt smoother. As for detangling, it is about the same as the other vo5's, nothing more or less in my experience. The smell doesn't seem to linger on my hair very much. Hair is currently drying, I'll update later on how it looks dry.

Did it clean better? It has that peppermint in there so I'm hoping it cleans well.
Thanks for the reviews, you're my fav guinnea pig since you use some of the same things!

jeep, yay I saw B2b in there! I think you're right the hair gets tired of or used to the same stuff. I can just take one day off and the next day my hair works so much better back to the same products. Either that or I'm just so appreciate to be using them again

It cleaned well...my hair doesn't feel gunky one bit...it's definitely "weightless" as the bottle says. As it is drying, my hair feels pretty bouncy, so maybe it was more clarifying than I originally thought it might have been, which is great.

Oh, bummer. The panthenol isn't a problem but the Biotin is for me. Thanks for posting the ingredients for me though! I guess I could always just add peppermint to my conditioner and pretend like it's the same. :P

Panthenol is not a protein. It is Vitamin B3. In hair products it is moisturizing.
Thanks hockeymom! I'm going out to look for that in just a bit. I'm so hopeful for this one, yay peppermint!
I'm forewarned about the fragrance though. I don't buy for fragrance generally but that would have been a surprise if it didn't smell vanilla.

No vanilla scent? What a jip. But it sounds positive though!

Maybe you all will smell the vanilla...maybe it's just my nose...I hope you do, let me know when you all get it if it smells like vanilla....I should have smelled it in the store and smelled other bottles to compare too....

Yeah, come on hockeymom, don't you know we demand hour by hour visual updates?? Sign yourself up on youtube on already. Maybe we could call it curltube, or pjtube. :P
