Default new v05 grapefruit-mandarin splash - great cowash/leave-in

This is my new co-wash, as the keratin in the Freesia was getting to me a little. It's pretty great - it smells nice, works well as a leave-in and as a cowash. My hair feels very clean and soft. It doesn't even have proteins in it, and just like the other V05s, it's incredibly cheap. I thought I'd pass it along for the people who love these and like rotating different formulas for cowashing.

I've used this before! When I was using VO5 condish exclusively, I paid no attention to which ones had protein and which ones did not. Maybe I should revisit them as leave-ins, at least.
