You should definitely try the Biolage / GVP conditioning balm! Here are the ingredients as per Sallys website: Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Myristyl Alcohol, Cetrimonium Chloride, Cetearyl Alcohol, Decyl Oleate, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum), Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Hexyl Cinnamal, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Hydrastis Canadensis (Golden Seal) Extract, Fucus Vesiculosus (Bladderwack) Extract, Methyl-2-OctynoateHmmm...I've been considering the GVP conditioning balm - I can't remember though, does it contain protein or aloe very high up in the ingredient list? I may check this out. The KCKT was not moisturizing enough for me - my hair gets sooo dry. I wanted the KCCC to work for me, but my hair does not seem to like aloe, particularly in a gel or gelly type product. My hair, even though it is on the fine side of normal, does not seem to get weighed down too much, and just drinks up moisture. I think this is why sealing is a hit for me - helps lock in the moisture. For this reason, I'm really curious if the ACV rinse would work for me. How do you use it? Do you mix with water? Rinse after you co-wash?Some of my favorite products for low dew points (which is all I ever get like you guys):
Tresemme Naturals moisturizing conditioner (as RO and LI)
Biolage conditioning balm (as RO/ DT)
SM Curl Milk
Oil sealing (very light, and not every day, or my hair gets greasy looking)
Coconut oil pre-poos (occasional)
I avoid glycerin if it's in the first couple ingredients, but if it's farther down my hair seems ok with it. For example, I can use KCSS (I love it for SOTC) and AG Recoil with no problems. I also don't use these every day though.
I give my fine hair lots of protein so that it can handle lots of moisture. I used to get over-conditioned really easily when I had almost no protein in my regimen.
ACV rinses are awesome for me. I should do them more, but I just do them here and there when I think about them. Instant smoothing of the hair with the result being a shiny, frizz-free hair day. Highly recommend.

It's definitely the most moisturizing conditioner I've used yet. If I leave it on for awhile I definitely consider it a DT.
I also do not find KCKT moisturizing at all, but it provides good slip and it doesn't seem to have any adverse effects in low dew points. When/if I ever finish my bottle, I won't buy a new one.
As for the ACV rinse, I just recently posted about this in another thread (link below). I mix about 1/4 cup ACV with 1/2-3/4 cup water, and then after rinsing all the conditioner out of my hair I dip the ends of my hair into the cup, then pour it all over my hair. Then I rinse it out with water (some people don't rinse it out). If you've never tried it, do! It feels amazing. Instant smooth hair.
how to do acv rinses?
