Arrow *high quality drug store conditioner*

I was recently enlightened on the harmful effects of bs as shampoo and acv as conditioner. I am going to switch to co-washing, but I don't want to spend a fortune on a good conditioner. I am looking for something that can be found at a drugstore, is inexpensive, moisturizes, does'nt weigh my hair down, and does'nt build up.

How are you defining moisturising? Do you actually mean adding moisture (humectants = water) or do you mean emollient/ conditioning or do you mean not stripping the hair?

The more moisturising/ rich/ conditioning a product is the less likely it is to be an effective cleanser. Most common drugstore products for co-washing are Suave Naturals, V05 and Tresemme Naturals.

I am defining and moisturizing with plain flax seed gel and a product that I made myself
-6 table spoons conditioner
-12 table spoons aloe vera gel
-1/2 tea spoon evoo
-2 tea spoons agave nectar
-2 pinches cinnamon
- jasmine and tea tree essential oil
I want something that has a light scent, doesn't strip my hair, and adds some moisture.
