I haven't tried the L'Oreal, but I just started using Nature's Gate Pomegranate and Sunflower (?) Condish as my cowash conditioner, and I love it.

For the record, I hated all the HE condishes, so our hair may have different tastes. I'm highly porous, densely packed, and my hair hates 'cones. Using HE conditioners made it feel like the water was bouncing off my hair, even with my high porosity.
Products in current rotation:

Terressentials Pure Earth Mud Wash; Elucence MBC (now really just for cowashing, leg shaving or emergencies); Curl Junkie: Repair Me, Deep Fix, Curl Rehab; AOHSR (retiring); Oyin Handmade: Honey Hemp, Hair Dew, J&B; Qhemet Biologics: BRBC (retiring- prefer Oyin HD), AOHC, OHHB; Jojoba Oil for scalp; Castor Oil or Shea butter to seal; Henna & Ayurvedic pastes when I can be bothered.

Still searching for the perfect stylers, but loving CJ CIAB over everything so far
I go back and forth between the L'Oreal Evercreme Cleansing Conditioner and regular old v05 or suave. The L'Oreal works great - it cleans the hair but is super gentle and makes my hair look sleeker. The only thing is it doesn't clean my scalp quite as well, so I still use a shampoo (no sulfates) every week or two.

Whatever I cowash with, I always still use another conditioner to detangle/condition with after (is this the normal thing, or do people use the same conditioner to "clean" and to condition??)

4a?? Maybe 3c...some 4b??? No clue

- Cleanser: CJ Daily Fix or KC Come Clean
- Co-wash: Suave Naturals or V05
- RO: GVP Conditioning Balm or Tresemme Naturals

Its a beauty, natural hair, food, family, and life all combined into one blog. I took a break from it for awhile but I recently started blogging again and Im addicted!

my tumblr natural inspirations and beauty:

Currently alternating loreal evercreme intense nourishing conditioner and tigi oatmeal and honey conditioner. I'm thinking about revisiting suave naturals, I also want to try there new condition sunshine something idk, but it smells great. I also want to revisit v05 conditioners, the first one I tried didn't wow me, but I'll them again. Also I use a different conditioner to detangle with as well. For me I have certain conditioners that are specifically for detangling.

Who has tried this? How does it compare to the Tropical Coconut Conditioner if you have tried both?

If you havent tried either , do you have a favorite Suave conditioner?
ive been using shea moisture restorative conditioner

i also got some california baby super sensitive conditioner...which i only used once so far, but i think i like it.

ive been keeping it as natural as possible as far as ingredients go.

i do have to say, though...that about a month ago i took a dive and tried out l'oreal eversleek intense smoothing conditioner and the eversleek reparative smoothing conditioners and they were both great. my hair actually felt really smooth/soft. if i wasnt so picky about ingredients i probably would keep buying them...but naaaah.

I'm still using Suave Coconut and Citrus, VO5 Kiwi and Moisture Milks. (I haven't seen the Suave Everlasting Sunshine but will surely try it if I ever find it).
Every once in awhile I try something new just for fun (right now it's Wen) but I always go back to Suave and VO5.
I condition wash, rinse, and I'm done. I don't use another conditioner to condition.

off-topic - triple spiral, I have your avatar in tattoo form on my foot. It represents the 3 goddesses - my 2 sisters and I. : )
