Right now I'm using Suave Aloe, sometimes mixed with coconut oil. I like TooShea sometimes to mix it up or to use something thick.

I voted for DevaCurl OneC. This is my rinse out fave. I use Elucence as a leave-in. I just got a CurlMart order of both of these today!

I voted Too Shea! but I've only used 2 of them, and the other, Curls Ecstasy Hair Tea, I only used a couple of times from a sample. I remember thinking it was amazing - I was only using it as a rinse-out then though.

I voted for AHC, but that's the only one I've tried.

Well, I've tried AHC and Too Shea, and I like Too Shea's moisturizing properties better, but the consistancy of AHC better. I hoping to try all of those conditioners someday.

Well it said BEST and if I had to choose just one so far it would be DevaCurl OneC, but I've been using that one the longest too.

I'm testing out Regis OO and it's doing really well though!
I love CJ conditioners too

Face it I can't use just one all the time, that's no fun!

well I chose devacurl one c, it's the only one on the list that I have used consistently and love! I am trying out AHC right now and so far it is good but probably not as good as the one c. I tried too shea a couple of times and didn't like the consistencey of it or the spread. I would love to try the EMBC.

I voted for Curls Asian Hair Tea only because it has a more pleasant scent to it than DevaCurl One-C. I actually like the both of them about the same. They both help my curls to retain more moisture, conditions them, and make them look and feel smoother as well.

From your list I've tried Deva One (both of them), Jessicurl Too Shea, Elucence, and Curls Ecstasy.

They're all great, but I voted for Curls Ecstasy

It wasn't on the list, but I am LOVING MyHoneyChild HoneyNutt conditioner!!!!!
It smells like fresh coconuts, gives great slip and awesome clumpy curls!!!!!!!!!! It's strange, because it has a thin consistency, but performs like a very THICK rich condish...I love this stuff!!! It's very moisturizing too!!!!!

BTW, my second fave is Devacare OneC so I voted for that one!

Same here. But I am loving it so much that I don't know if I'm ever going to get around to trying anything else...

Hmmm... never tried any of the ones listed, I tend to be extrordinarily cheap. I'm currently using suave tropical coconut and I love that stuff, but I'm a fan with redcelticcurls of the suave aloe too. Haven't used suave aloe in a while, maybe I should grab a bottle next time I'm out.

I have tried 6 of the conditioners on that list and Elucence is the one that worked in the long run for me so that gets my vote.

I've used them all except AHC, Regis OO and the Ouidad. The one conditioner that I've been using on a very regular basis for over two years now is DevaCurl One C, and while I still use the others, I give this one my vote because it's the one that gives me the most consistent results that I look for in a condish - detangles exceptionally well, nice creamy texture and moisturizing.
My second favorites would have been a tie between Elucence, Curls Ecstasy and Too Shea. I couldn't use Too Shea on a daily basis over a long period of time because it would over-condition me, but I love how very moisturizing it is. Elucence is just a good all-purpose conditioner, but not detangling enough for me. Curls Ecstasy is also great for conditioning and moisture and excellent for DT's, but not detangling enough for me to use alone.
I have just started using DevaCare the past two times, so I can't say just yet if I prefer it over regular One C.

I picked Aloeba, because it's lighter and doesn't weigh my hair down, but it does a super job of detangling and conditioning. I also use GF for fine hair, it's almost as good IMO, and it's much less expensive

I really want to try that one! Or the coconut one! But I was wondering, on the ingredient list, it doens't have a preservative.. how do they keep it from going bad?
