Default Question about co washing...

Can anyone rec a conditioner to try for co washing?

My roots get oily but my lengths are dry. I tend to have to shampoo daily because of my roots so I'd like to give co washing a try. I tried Tresemme Naturals (the moisture one) and it was too heavy and weighed me down (even without a rinse out). My hair is porous, fine, but very dense.

I've read the VO5 conditioners are lighter than the Suave Naturals ones so I'm leaning towards one of those but have no idea which to try.

I'm thinking of following up with Biolage Conditioning Balm on my lengths (that will work, right?).

Yes that sounds good, or loreal cleansing conditioner

I like the VO5 conditioners specifically labeled as cleansing. I believe the two scents are Kiwi Lime and Vanilla Mint Tea; I've used the lime and thought it was great. It's runnier (easier to distribute) than Suave, and leaves my scalp feeling clean without stripping.

ETA: I love the GVP knockoff of the Biolage balm! Super moisturizing. If your length is dry, it should probably work well. Just don't apply it too close to the roots.

VO5 Kiwi Lime is my favorite cowash, and it has a decent amount of protein in it, which my fine hair likes. As Mollym said, it's runnier than Suave, so it's easier to distribute. I wanted to like the Vanilla Mint Tea, but it left my scalp itchy no matter how well I rinsed.

V05 kiwi lime one is great for cleansing. I usually would follow it up with the v05 strawberries and cream moisture milk. It's great for moisture and really lightweight.
