Default Suave Tropical Coconut Conditioner Who Knew?

Ok, after trying One C, Too Shea, Activate, Mop Top, and most recently
Elucence I now seem to be having really good hair days with Suave Tropical Coconut conditioner which I purchased for $1.59. It seems that for my fine hair which I have a lot of the other conditioners were to heavy and moisturizing. I now put a quarter size of Suave in my short hair and rinse and then smooth a nickel size of Angell on scrunch and diffuse. So much easier. I am almost tempted to try CG again but this time with a much less moisturizing conditioner like Suave. Curious to know what other fine hair people are doing. If I decide to continue the shampooing do you think using elucence shampoo and conditioner once a week and then just using Suave for the other days would be a good plan or does anybody have other shampoos that might work out better for fine hair. Does Suave actually make any good shampoos? I am including a picture if anyone can chime in on my hair type. Thanks.

Looks great, raw!! Good job!

I have fine hair too, but my problem is that most conditioners aren't moisturizing enough. My favorites, and the ones I get the best hair days with, are the heavier, thicker and more moisturizing ones. But I'm also very tangle-prone and those seem to be the only ones that help me detangle because of the slip.

I don't know of any Suave shampoos that are CG because of the sulfates, but you might want to give the Activate shampoo a try because it's supposed to be quite gentle but still cleansing.

raw60 - you're got great curl formation.

I have fine hair too, and I like using Suave coconut cond. in the summer because of the "summery" tropical scent and also because, for me, it's a little heavier than some of the other conditioners I normally use. I live in a super-humid climate, so from May-September, I like to use conditioners that have a bit more heft to help keep the frizz factor down.

Your hair looks great!
Suave coconut is my favorite (I'm CG so I use it to wash my hair and for conditioning), with VO5 Kiwi/Lime and Raspberry being my next favorite ones.
Sorry, can't help you with the shampoo question since I don't use any.

I bought a bottle of Suave coconut conditioner a few weeks ago and keep forgetting about it. I can't wait to use it now! I was skeptical since I usually use V05 and prefer it to Suave products 10 to 1. I read the raves on here though and it was on sale for 69 cents, so I had to buy it. I'll post back on how I like it.
