I've seen it at Walgreens, but am not clear about the other products besides the shampoo(Curl and Shine, which is the one I was looking at). Is the milk a conditioner, is the "smoothie" a conditioner or styling product, etc.? I need someone experienced to explain the various products to me, other than the shampoo. Thanks!

The milk can be used as a leave in and the smoothie can be used as a styling product or the other way around. I used the smoothie after my leave in.


Also be careful cause they both have protein and too much protein causes breakage and rough hair

Hmmm, good to know. Now I won't even THINK about purchasing them. Protein is a no-no for me.

Just like kurlygurly here, I'm going to pass on this line, due to the protein. My hair needs a lot more moisture than protein, even though I do color my hair. The only time I use protein is with Sally's GVP knock-off of K-pak, followed by a deep moisturizing conditioner. I'll stick with that, and continue looking for another shampoo to use on days that I do shampoo. My co-washes have been with Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut conditioner which has been fine and ultra-cheap for me for the last 3 years.

My hair got sick of the suave coconut version b/c of the protein.....but it loves the other types.

You know, it seems like the Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut conditioner is not the same as it was 3 years ago when I first started using it, not as moisturizing a co-wash. Are the other Suave conditioners like this too, in having too much protein? If not, which ones DON'T have protein in them and are suitable for co-washing? I love the price - I do have to go cheap with my products pretty much since I have very thick hair, even though it's only bob-length.

If I'm not mistaken I think the coconut is the only one that contains protein.
