All I can tell you is that I HATE the smell of the blackberry sage on my head. I won't be using it again. =/

I didn't find it to be anywhere near as conditioning as suave tropical coconut. As a first condish though, it works. (just not for me...for smelly reasons)

I use only VO5 and Suave conditioners and they all work about the same on my hair so I really choose them by smell.
I love Suave coconut, VO5 raspberry/strawberries and cream, kiwi lime, blackberry sage, and a citrus one I can't remember the name of.

No. I use a bunch of the other vo5 condishes. The strawberry n cream, kiwi lime, passion fruit smoothie, and the campmille tea therapy are good ones.

While I love blueberry and raspberry, often I can't deal with the scent. I dunno!

I still find that the suave condish is thicker though. Then again, I currently have been dealing with over conditioning so maybe the vo5 alone wouldn't be so bad.

The V05's seem to be very light in comparison to Suaves. I agree if you're OC'd stick with the lighter condish until the problem goes away. Unless you want to reach for the Low Poo.

I recently bought the Blackberry one and I don't see any huge diff between that and the Clarifying ones. jilipoo posted on another thread that maybe that's just "hype" about labeling it clarifying there weren't any real surfactants in them. The clarifying ones do seem a tad lighter though......

I was suspecting that. This morning when I used the kiwi lime, I checked out the back and decided I definitely needed to check this out... see if it really clarified or if it just said it did.

...interesting....

I picked some of this up during my lunch hour today so I'd have lighter co-washes to alternate with my Suave. I think it smells YUMMY!

I haven't tried that one, sounds good though. I like the strawberry and cream one, passionfruit(whatever), and the green tea chamomile.

yeas, i have the passion fruit smoothie, i guess it has some proteins in it that others don't. the scent is light, not like strawberry, which is potent, and i haven't smelled the melon. i guess it may be good, still deciding.
