Though I've yet to try both, I'd go with Komaza Care based on ingredients. A bunch of AO conditioners have alcohol denat (drying alcohol) high on the list which... no thank you IMO.

Komaza has a bunch of different products.... make sure to pick the ones that are right for your properties (and if choosing a conditioner for a leave-in, keep in mind humectants and dew points as well).
fine - normal porosity*?- medium density - normal elasticity. Hard water. SoCal.
*Used to be low-porosity, but I lightened my hair 1-2 shades, so I may be normal-porosity now.

New climate! Current favorites:
Low-poo: CJ Gentle Cleansing Shampoo, Giovanni SaS
RO: V05 Kiwi Lime
Styler: UFD CM (old formula), FSG + CNPF
PT: CJ Repair Me, IAgirl's gelatine

Experimenting with: JC Confident Coils, JC Rockin Ringlets, CJ CIAB, gelatin gel

iherb discount code: CFN646

What are the ingredients of the products you are considering, your hair properties and dew points/ humidity?

Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss ultimate volume, Inecto argan

I did my first Komaza Protein Strengthener last week and I am in heaven. This stuff completely rocks. The GPB is nice, but I would use that for a quick fix if I only wanted to devote a small amount of time.

You do have to sit under a dryer or use a blow dryer without agitating the hair to let your hair dry. My hair has too much length and volume for the hooded dryer I own and I have to find something else. I used my blow dryer and it worked out fine.

After rinsing, I followed up with HE Honey, I'm Strong conditioner. It was the first time using it, so I don't know how good it really is, but together my hair was sublime when it came time to style in twists.

I have fallen in love with the Komaza line. I also use the Califia Pudding, the Califia crème. I have coarse, wiry hair that loves heavy products.

According the label, you don't have to use a conditioner after the protein treatment. I guess that would be up to your hair's individual needs.

You really don't. I contacted them and asked since I don't own a dryer. I was told to just let it set for 15-20 minutes.
