    Yeah, I agree that this way takes more conditioner. Sometimes if I just "add water" while I am "washing" my hair with the conditioner, it seems to spread around easier. I guess I figure that I use more conditioner, but since I am not using any shampoo, it's ok

    Is your hair feeling less dry?

    Overall yes, definitely. I still would want it to be even less dry. Maybe it's time to look into some hair lotions and stuff.

    Make sure your atmosphere is humidified. I used to fuss with a humidifier but then I started using an old crockpot I got at the Salvation Army store -- I fill it with water, turn the crockpot on, and it evaporates into the air all day. It makes a big difference with hair and skin in the winter.

    Ooh, the crockpot idea is a good one!

    As far as using a lot of conditioner to co-wash, that's why most people use cheap ones for the co-wash, like Suave Naturals or VO-5, and then a pricier conditioner as a deep treatment or leave in. You'll go through lots of the co-wash one.

    If you want to spend some cash dollar, Elucence is good.

    If you're looking for a drug-store brand, Suave Coconut conditioner and VO-5 Strawberries (and Cream?) is good. I prefer the Suave but I use it on my daughter's hair, not mine. Her hair is curly, too, but it has a different curl pattern and is far, far thinner and less porous than mine. If I use that Suave in my hair, it goes off the super-crunchy scale--brutal brittality!

    Ragashree, I use Yes!to Cucumbers. I buy at Walgreens...it's the only place I can find it. They don't sell it at the CVS here. There is also a Yes!to Carrots and a Yes!to Tomatoes. Steer clear of the Tomatoes, it has a very strong fragrance *ugh*. It's one of the few low-protein conditioners I can find. It's not cheap at $8.00/bottle. It's okay to use a small amount as a leave-in but I make my own hair butters and lotions to avoid quickly using up my precious conditioner.

    I feels your pain ladies. I truly sympathize. My hair is a pain in the ass :steam:

    i've tried so many things.

    Leave in conditioner at the tips seems to work. sometimes a deep olive oil conditioning before you shower.

    I braid it till it dries so it doesn't go apeshit on me.

    So even the conditioner-only deal still has my hair a kinda dry. I was at the Indian grocer this afternoon and found this:

    which I bought and applied to my hair and scalp just now. Heheh the funny thing is that apparently it has a pretty high melting point, so, in the air in my apartment, it is solid state, but it melts in your hand. Weird. I did not expect that.

    Anyway, I'll wash it out in the morning. Glad I'm not my own lover tonight.

    FYI the melting point is 76° (F), 24° (C). FUN FACT.
