Fine hair conditioners from CurlMart?

After buying KCKT & My Honey Child Banana Creme Conditioner on somewhat of a whim during the recent sale & wondering if they'd be too heavy for my fine hair, I'm now going to start making a list of conditioners that'd probably be better suited for me.

What do you recommend?
Have you already tried Elucence MBC? I have fine hair and it works great for me.

She's allergic to the Elucence! It's so embarrassing that I remember these things.

So you don't like the Knot Today? I liked it as a leave-in during the summer, because it's fairly light.

When I tried My Honey Child, it didn't work for me at all.

I think the CurlJunkie Cocomilk (?) conditioner (it has coconut milk in it) is a nice light conditioner. All the CJ products are pretty moisturizing.

Trader Joe's Nourish is good, and it's virtually the same product as Giovanni something or other. It doesn't have silicones. I've tried Giovanni's wheat conditioner and a few others.

Did you ever try Jessicurl's Aloeba? Right now I'm addicted to TooShea. They're kinda expensive. Right now I'm trying to limit myself to buying only what I'll actually use and hoping that in the end, it will cost less than stockpiling cheaper products that don't work so well for me. (yeah...the PJ is full of compelling arguments like that)

I also like the Oyin Honey Hemp, especially in the winter. It's not particularly light, though, it's not thick but it has oils in it.

The KCKT was on backorder. It might not be suited for my hair.

Yep, I think I'm allergic to the peach in Elucence.

Was the My Honey Child Banana Creme Conditioner what you tried & too heavy?

I've tried everything Jessicurl, but I don't remember what the Aloeba did.

Yes, the Oyin Honey Hemp Conditioner is great! I will buy that.
In my opinion KCKT is really, really light (and you don't need much to get the job done - I'd say dime to quarter-sized amount depending on hair length). Obviously use more if you are using for rinse-out CO purposes.

My hair is thin and gets weighed down easily, but KCKT is fine on me.

With any Jessicurl oil becomes a problem after a while for me. If I use Aloeba too many days in a row the oils start to make my hair droopy. The WDT doesn't affect me as much - I think b/c that's shea and cocoa butters and not as many other oils...? A gentle shampoo usually clears me up.

I need to try Elucence... its on my list (stupid lists!!!! that's where the PJ problem starts)
3b, and increasingly c pieces... my curls will always be a little confused, but that is just fine!

Maybe that's the problem I had with many of Jess's products.

Here's my hint to you, either don't make a list, or make a list on Excel, but don't print it off & whatever you do, don't carry it around with you! The reason? -- I have a few products to return to Sally's, a set of products to a warehouse club, one to WalMart & maybe one to a grocery store though I don't have the receipt for it, with plenty left behind under the sink & partly used in an antique chamber pot, all thanks to impulse shopping gone awry. I'll repurchase when/if they're needed. God, a shrink would love to get hold of me for OCDness!

Let us know how that KCKT works - and did you ever get a friend to go buy that kirkland's CO?

As for other CO's - I hear good things about Mop Top - have you gone that route?

I did talk to my friend who always has extra Kirkland's conditioner & will sell me one bottle (at a time to keep me in check), which would take me 6 months, I'm guessing, to go through. So I really don't need two bottles at once!

I have a bottle of the Mop Top Lemon Sage, yes.

I also have a bottle of the Nature's Gate Hemp that I still have the receipt to.
Code:
It might go back as well.


So, with all the returns/swaps (maybe 3 - 1 deep treat, 1 daily & 1 pretreat; 2 daily; 1 deep treat/daily; & 1 plastic wrap sealed set of 2 daily) I'd still have 1/2 bottle daily in the shower, 1/2 bottle deep treat in the shower, 1 mostly full giant bottle leave-in in the shower; 2 daily in the chamber pot that are barely used; 1 leave-in under the sink; 1 daily & 2 deep treat under the sink; & 1 daily that my friend will sell me!
I've done my reverse shopping! And the gals who did my returns at Sally's & the health food store laughed about the reason.

ETA: 12-3, I got rid of 2 more products!
