    Default Organic Condish for CO-washing?

    I don't know if this has been posted before, but I've tried my best to find answers in this forum but to no avail. So here goes:

    I know that many of you pretty people here use VO5 or Suave conditioners for CO washing, but I don't know if anyone uses organic, paraben-free conditioners, and if they do, are there any recommendations?

    I use Giovanni's Deep Treatment but it's waaaay too rich and left my scalp flaky and my ends too slippery and a little greasy to the touch, plus when my hair was damp it was smelly. I don't want to use anything with parabens in them and I'm not sure if Suave or VO5 have parabens?

    I have 1a/f/i-ii hair that's color-treated along most of the length and virgin roots, slightly oily scalp (or oily only because it's more obvious on my hair) but able to stretch 3 days between shampoos. But shampoos make my roots all tangled and it hurts to wet comb so I was hoping CO could help.

    So please give me your recommendations for inexpensive organic conditioners!

    Hello joiekimochi I would diffidently use Aubrey Organics if you don't want to make your own herbal hair care recipe. Here is a link. I have totally different hair then yours but I know a lot of people here also use AO that have oily hair. Here is a link and you can usually buy the AO in a health care store or online.HTH

    Suave and VO5 are paraben free, but not fragrance free and not free of other preservatives, but that's the case with a lot of "natural" brands. I like Alaffia, their everyday shea might be good for CO washing. It's moisturizing though, and it might be too much. Shea and honey is their other conditioner I use and it's very rich. I also like soap based products in general.

    Aubreys Organics is good, so is Avalon Organics. Aubrey's is the most "natural" of the two though. I don't know if Burts Bees is organic or not, but it's widely available and a good natural choice. Check out a store like Whole Foods, New Seasons, or Trader Joes if there are any near you.
