Which do you prefer for CO wash: Suave or VO5?

I've been using Suave but have heard nice things about VO5 also.
Everyone always wants what they can't have.
Suave, V05 and White rain of the non cone sort work all the same to me. WR is a bit thicker if you like that. The only thing that makes any difference in my hair is if one has peach in it it gives me better clumping or if it has peppermint in it it leaves my hair cleaner.
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
I like both. I like Suave Coconut, and Milk n Honey. And V05 Kiwi Lime, and Strawberries n cream.

It's not about having what you want, it's about Wanting what you have
I prefer the VO5 but I'm not sure there's all that much difference among them.

Definitely VO5 . Suave leaves my hair kind of droopy .
Suave coconut is my all time favorite, but I also love VO5 kiwi/lime and sunkissed raspberry. White Rain works for me but I don't like their scents as much.

I'm actually new to the V05 co-washes, but I kind of like them so far. I found a special fruit blend one in a Big Lots type of store in Sweden, the only CG co-washing condish I have found there so far. But since I've been over here I've tried the new Vanilla Mint Tea and just tonight I tried the Kiwi/Lime. I think they seem to have pretty good slip. My favorites from Suave are the Tropical Coconut and Mixed Berry Smoothie.

VO5 definitely for me, Suave irritated my scalp. I particularly like VO5 Passion Fruit, I have three others the Kiwi/Lime and Lavender Silks and Honeydew Smoothie, but I've gotten the BEST clumping results from co-washing with the Passion Fruit, I think I've become a PEACH convert too...today I'm going out to Beauty Express for a bottle of B2B Peach Pomegranate and see what all the RAVES are about!!

Still looking for a styling product...suggestions welcome!

Well, if you feel that strongly about VO5...

I used to like them both equally, but since I discovered VO5 Passion Fruit, I haven't wanted to use anything else. I have a stash of the discontinued formula of Suave Milk & Honey, which I guess I'll have to use up for shaving.

I've used both, bu I overwhelmingly perfer V05. Champagne Kisses is my favorite.
Coily and cute.

4something-ish
VO5 Moisture Milks Strawberries and Cream is my favorite for both cowashing and conditioning (mixed with a little honey).

Well guys, I'm gonna give the V05 gang one more try, and if I get the same results as the first 2 times, then that's it. I've gotten dull, producty, limpy curls both times I've tried V05 condishes for co-washing now, so I'm trying to figure out if it was the V05 causing it not.
