conditioner dilemma
 
Elucence is my HG conditioner and I'm almost out of it. It's not much of a dilemma but here it is:

Do I buy more Elucence, which I know works but has to be ordered online *or* do I take a risk and buy Mastey Moisturee, which I can get from a local beauty supply store without waiting for shipping? Mastey Traite is my HG shampoo. I tried Frehair, their light detangler. I went through the whole bottle in a week. I haven't tried Moisturee. I have no idea how it compares with Elucence. A third option is Kenra Platinum Reconstructor for Thick/Coarse Hair. I've never tried that either but the Kenra site recommends it for me and I can buy that locally as well.

What would you pick? If you have any other conditioner suggestions, please post those too. I need a rich conditioner with slip that won't make my hair feel coated in plastic.

I would stick with what you know will work for you. I love Elucence. I also use Master Traite, and have been interested in trying their conditioner since I've had success with with 'poo.

Could you still buy your Elucence and try a small container of the Moisturee? This way, you can see if you've been missing anything, and in the event that it doesn't work, you'll have your trusty Elucence already in the mail.

I tried the Kenra and was not impressed for the price. If you have a Trade Secrets, it's worth a try because you can return it.

I didn't like Moisturee at all. Gave it a good try - went through two tubes before giving up. Made my hair feel kind of thick and producty. No slip or smoothness at all. Haven't used the others as we can't get them here, so can't compare.

Thanks! I feel better about sticking with Elucence now since neither of the others got great reviews. I will probably do what shygirl suggested and get Moisturee as well as order Elucence. I wanted to narrow it down to just one choice to save money but my dh thinks I should go with both. That wasn't what I was expecting to hear from him.

A new thing I'm hesitant about is the recommendation that you follow Moisturee with Frehair. I can see how Frehair could possibly have enough slip following a moisturizing conditioner but having to use two conditioners in the shower sounds annoying.

If you got the Mastey conditioner plase let me know what you thought of it.
I am a little tempted in trying it too.

I ended up going with Elucence and unscented Jessicurl DT. I decided I can't risk trying something new that might irritate my piercings. I'm still curious about the Mastey but it will be a long time before I try it. :?

(don't understand how I get dubble post..*headscratch*)

Kurlee 01-07-2006 01:37 AM

Okay. If I try it before you I'll let you know what I thought of it. Thanks for replying. :D

I just bought a 32 oz of the Mastey Traité shampoo on e-bay for $21.25. :o)
They want $28 for it at the Mastey page.

In my opinion, there's no substitute for Elucence - for me, other conditioners come close but nothing detangles like it or makes my hair feel as good or prevents shedding as much, so I would stick with it.
