Uh oh. Can't use this everyday. Protein overload! And I think the Shea...it's always the Shea... That's breaking out my hairline. Ima cut it out until I clear up and only use a couple times per week. I reeeeeealy don't want to let it go, my hair loves this! And it smells Delish

Really its always in grocery stores and drug stores maybe walmart too
Not in my area. I only see them at Rite-Aid and they only keep one or two in stock. I did see it at a grocery once but the one I bought had a different scent and horrible performance.

I have never seen the VO5 in Toronto but when I went to Buffalo NY I saw them at Walmart for 89 cents! I was a bit worried that something so cheap wouldn't be good for my hair and I dont understand half the ingredients on the bottle. I got the Passion fruit smoothie conditioner, has anyone else tried this one? I havent used it yet.I usually use the Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture for co washing and I really like it.

So far I have only tried the Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture conditioner. My mom has been raving about it forever so I thought I would try it out. I really like it! My hair is long and it makes it so much easier to detangle my comb just glides through my hair! it also makes my hair very soft. I got it in a big bottle 33.8 fl oz or 1,000 ml. I would really like to try the leave in conditioner.

I love the Giovanni as a leave in. I have not found anything better. I am not crazy about their leave in. However, I dont think I can use the Giovanni every day, so I alternate with the VO5 Shea Cashmere, or Cure Care (Sally). Sometimes I leave just a small amount of these 2 in my hair, like now, when the weather is colder. I dont see the need for a separate leave in.

The Walmarts & Walgreens in this area don't carry VO5 at all. I have to get shea cashmere at King Soopers (Kroger) and if I want the vanilla mint tea I have to go to one of the Kmarts.

Lol, no it wasn't the volumizing one. It was the Shea Cashmere. Like, it was in the Shea Cashmere bottle, but the product inside was nothing like the Shea Cashmere, if that makes sense. Maybe the bottles were old, so that's I why I only purchase at Rite-Aid whenever they have it.

I have been using it as a RO, but I put just a small amount on as a leave in, mostly on the ends. Its really good stuff.

Wow i just have to add to this but Ive been using this product as a co wash product as well as a leave in conditioner and let me tell you .... My hair seems more voluminous and soft its really crazy last week I did a shampoo and cowashed with this slept with my hair in a tshirt (plopping method) but with no product when I woke up it was damp I let it air dry and I swear my hair was silky soft I probably would have went out in public without any product in my hair finally after 21 years im finding one of my holyy grails

You can use up conditioner to shave your legs with.

I LOVE this conditioner!! I stopped using it to try new things and revisited it last night

Hopefully it doesn't spontaneously stop working on my hair

I'm still loving it! I often mix it with Tresemme nats for my RO, and I use it as a LI sometimes, too. I'll even add some EVOO, honey, and acv and use it as a DT.

Thanks, Myrna!!
