I user vo5 chamomile tea conditioner as my co-wash ans then use and Aussie3 MM moist and rinse out
with great results,, no more itchy scalp.
My hair has never looked better I deep condition with Curl Junkie strawberry ..

I just wanted some input..

I prefer Vo5 as well. I've been using Suave Pomegranate the last few days to finish off an old bottle, but it's making my scalp itch so I'm going back to my beloved Vanilla Mint Tea.

i second vo5. suave is thicker and makes my fingers glide through to my scalp easier, but it left my hair with a build up that i eventually had to shampoo out. idk what ingredient does it but i dont use suave anymore for co- washes.

I love them both. My favorite is still Suave coconut, but VO5 kiwi lime is a close second.

I love the VO5 Pomegranate one best but also love the Blackberry Sage one if I have oiled my hair. Suave just does not work for me.

In addition to making me itch, this apparently gave me build-up, which I've never had with any other product. I'm never using Suave again!

I'm new to CG, but so far I prefer Suave. I have a bottle of VO5 kiwi lime. It smells great but every time I've used it my hair has turned out limp and doesn't want to curl well.

I prefer Suave because I don't have to use as much and it cleanses great for me....vanilla, pomegranate, wild cherry blossom, love them! I do use Vo5 on occasion but I have to use a lot of it....blackberry sage, pomegranate and the "tea's" is what I like. It's a matter of preference.

I don't really notice much of a difference either way...

when I used to co wash with a cheaper conditioner v05 was ALWAYS my go to. I enjoy the suave scent waaay more but v05 tends to work better on my 3c curls while giving them plenty of hold.... although the conditioner is very thin.

If you are CG it should make a big difference as the Sauve conditioners (except the Sauve Naturals) have 'cones'. I wish I had known that before ordering (2) 32oz bottles of the Sauve Professionals Almond and Shea Butter

I had been using Suave Coconut as a cowash but switched to VO5 Kiwi Lime and I'm liking it better. I have a bottle of Suave Daily Clarifying Conditioner to try when the VO5 runs out. I also want to try the VO5 Vanilla Mint Tea which is also a "clarifying" conditioner and I've seen a few people here rave about it.

I've never used suave conditioners, but back when I used to 'poo I would sometimes use my bf's suave 'poo and hated it.

I love Vo5! It's so slippery and they all smell great! Currently, I alternate between Vo5 and Head & Shoulders conditioners, cuz if I don't use H&S at least once a week I get really dandruff, not caused by the Vo5, just how my head is.

Same for me I get the results after I use this. I am however in love with the VO5 Moisture Milks but I can't find these anywhere. They had 5 different kinds of VO5 shampoos & conditioners @ wal-mart yesterday. But love will always be Suave Coconut.

I've been using this one for the past year so now I'm gonna have to try cowashes with the coconut one. Not sure what to do about a heavier one so I have some reading to do but I have a feeling I will need something "more" as those other cheapest Suaves and VO5 have not been my friends in the past when pooing. I have a nearly full bottle of the shampoo of this one. EEK!

I agree with these posters! I was using VO5 Kiwi Lime Squeeze for more than a month, but my hair was getting kinda greasy and gunky feeling. After a while, I was sure it was this conditioner, so I switched to Suave Daily Clarifying today, and I absolutely am in love! There is hardly any grease compared to before, and my scalp feels clean and gunk-free. The conditioner itself also feels so much better than the VO5 -- it's got more of a creamy feel. The Kiwi Lime one feels weird -- almost super oily and gross, but also really thin and light, like it's really processed and synthesized. I realized that the grease I was feeling on my head felt almost like the conditioner felt. So, needless to say, I am now a Suave lover after just one wash! I'm never using VO5 again.

Suave made my curls limp and sad. Since I've switched to VO5 kiwi lime (the only one I could find at the store that said "clarifying" even though I wanted the tea one) they are looking much happier!

I prefer V05 for conditioner washing. I need a really runny conditioner to get my hair and scalp clean. Suave is too thick.
