I'm only really particular about my co-wash conditioners. I will only use conditioners that are labeled volumizing or clarifying to co-wash. I'm currently rotating between Suave Clarifying, VO5 Naturals Clarifying, and Tresemme Naturals Radiant Volume.

For my rinse out, I typically will use a protein rich conditioner mixed with a more moisturizing conditioner. My current favorite combo is ION Effective Care mixed with CJ Argan and Olive Oil. Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture also works well mixed with Effective Care. I find the protein keeps my curls bouncy and the moisturizing conditioner adds lots of slip.

Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny

Default what to use, what to use

I have very fine hair, and it's thin, too. It's damaged, so it's porous because of that, but would be normally porous, I think, if it weren't damaged. My hair *loves* humidity, and hates dryness, so of course I live in the middle of a desert. (sigh)

I haven't found a good conditioner yet. I feel like Goldilocks. This one is too heavy, that one doesn't have enough slip, etc.

I want one that gives me plenty of moisture, w/o over conditioning my hair. Light enough not to weigh it down. Enough slip to detangle. Oh, and cone free.

I'm still looking. If I find anything, I'll be sure to share!
