Default Best conditioner

I'm sure this question has been asked before(sorry when i searched for this in the forums I didn't get any good answers, they were all vague), but I'm looking for the best conditioner for dry hair. I've been swimming all summer(in pools&oceans) and putting lemon juice in my hair. I've also had a few run in's with cones and I'm going to need to use a sulphate shampoo wich I have a feeling will have a drying effect. All i've been using for a condish is suave and I really need something more moisturizing. What are some good suggestions other than AO or LVPNG?

Do you not want to use an Aubrey Organics conditioner? They have lots of great ones, including a conditioner for swimmers. Could you give us some info regarding your hair texture and porosity?

Oh, wich one is that? I just wanted other suggestions because I can't find any around here. I've got medium texture and I beleive overly porous hair but it could be just because its dried out from chlorine and such, because during spring time I tested it and thought it was just normal porosity.

Default We use mixed chicks hair products

I am half filipino and black and my daughter is half me and half Kenyan. We both have 3c curly hair. Before did not really use conditioners that you used in the shower, mostly shampoo on hair and when got out used blue magic (hair conditioner), baby oil, and sometime pink oil, but now for about 1 month have been using mixed chicks hair products and nothing else. considering using carol's daughter black vanilla shampoo in place of the mixed chicks shampoo though because I feel I do not get as much moisturized, soft hair and have read good reviews about the carol's daughter. If it goes well, will tell everyone. We keep our hair natural and have recieved several positive comments. Hope this is helpful and it does not hurt to try something else, especially if it works. Buy from amazon.com and the positive reviews there are numerous.

This is the normalizing conditioner for swimmers...

http://www.aubrey-organics.com/Produ...?productid=078

I LOVE the Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose conditioner and I just ordered the White Camellia conditioner. If you haven't tried that I would seriously suggest that you do. Otherwise, I also like Burt's Bees conditioners. I use the Super Shiny Grapefruit and Sugar Beet conditioner as most of the others contain protein, and since my hair is medium/coarse textured, it doesn't really like protein.

Are you wanting something you can get in a drug store? Or are you willing to order online, or get a salon one?

how about:
curl junkie curl rehab moisturizing conditioner -- i even leave a little in as a leave in
mop top -- have not tried it but it is next on my list

it seems that those might be good for deep conditioning. on an ongoing basis, i've used natures gate aloe vera conditioner.
and i've heard that trader joe's has a good one.

suggestion -- go to curl products and search for conditioners and 5 stars rating. then read the reviews!

I like Mane & Tail
Herbal Gro - This one contains Olive Oil/Shea Butter and few other other herbs. It does however contain one silcone but other than that I works really well

I noticed more softer hair and a little bit of shine.

I even bought the leave in.

It was on sale for 3.33 for conditioner
and 3.13 for leave in
@ Food 4 Less
---------------
I have tried a lot of other products that just have fail but I finally think this best one for my hair

I always find it amusing that people use mane and tail shampoo and conditioner on their hair. I've been riding since I was 5 so I've been using the stuff on my horse for years but it wasn't until a few years ago I realized it was marketed to people as well.

A salon one would be nice if its CG...I think I'll have to order from online though, because I've been such good things about Aubrey Organics, and you've convinced me! Thanks for everyones help
