GVP Conditioning Balm during the Spring?

Does it work as well as in Winter?

Using:
Lowpoo: Organix coconut
Rinse-outs: Tresemme Naturals Moisture, GVPCB, Loreal Vive Pro Hydra Gloss, suave coconut or waterlily
Leave-in: Lustrasilk olive oil or shea butter cholesterol, aussie hair insurance, or regular conditioner
Stylers: Loreal Out of Bed Texturizer, LA looks sport or durahold max hold plus power + volume gel
That depends on what the meaning of "as well" is.

To me, it all depends on what your current variables are. Since you mention the season, I assume you're concerned about weather changes. To me, the weather's not a problem until the dew point get significantly different than what I'm currently experiencing.

I won't try to change up my routine until the dew point is above 30*F, and that probably won't include switching out the Conditioning Balm, but hey, who knows? HTH!

I live in SoCal and my dew points have been over 40 for weeks and weeks and I still love the GVP conditioning balm. I'm gonna keep using it as long as I can.

I love it any time of the year but only use it for co-washing.

I love it in any dewpoint. I sometimes even use some as a leave-in, though that might be too much during the spring and summer, it's great for the winter.

Styling: a little bit of leave in and a little bit of KCCC, diffusing

I find it a bit too overconditioning once spring rolls around for everyday use.

My head is too full of curly girl acronyms. I read this as GPB (the Aubrey Organics protein conditioner) and got all concerned. Sometimes this is all too much for me.

Hahaha, Jess, that cracks me up! Sometimes I also find myself mentally searching for the actual name of what I usually call AVG, or GPB, or DT, or GDLI, KCCC...and the list goes on.

GVP is from Sally's right? I've looked for it at two Sally's stores and neither one had it.

Thanks,

It is from Sally's, for sure, and a lot of Sally's can special order it for you if you ask (not all do this). Walgreens also has a biolage knock-off that is similar to the GVP, I believe it is called Bioinfusion Conditioning Balm.

thanks for the input everyone! I like it too and will keep using it until my hair tells me to stop, lol. I rarely get overconditioned though...

This condish detangled awesomely, gave me clumps, and tons of moisture and shine............the first time I used it.

After that it was all downhill. It stills detangles, but now it isn't moisturizing at all. Infact, I think it might be drying my hair out!

I'm jealous of you all.

Thanks, onethousandcurls (love your name!). I was just in Walgreens to get the Vitamin brand conditioner that's buy one get one free this week. When I use those up, I'll check Bioinfusion. Is it CG?

Thanks!

What exactly is the title on the GVP Conditioning Balm bottle? I was in Sally's looking at the GVP products (hooray-the one near me has just started letting non-professionals inside!), and I didn't see it. But I wanted to check the name in case I just was missing it when I was looking. Thanks!

Thanks. I don't think they did have it. I'll have to see sometime if I can get them to order it.
