based on the ingredients, which would be more moisterizing/ easier to comb through in the shower?

I need a very heavy conditioner, the cure care I bought is just too light, for what I need it to do.

I have used the Stonybrook Unscented Oil Free Shampoo in the past, I really liked it. Here's my review of the shampoo:

I never tried their conditioner though!

thank you so much for replying! I worry that the "oil free" part of stonybrook will equal crazy poofball hair for me. Your review says you dont use a conditioner with the shampoo, and you still felt moisterized? Hmm that bodes well for stonybrook.

Also, does anyone know if you can add olive oil/coconut oil to conditioner in the shower to thicken it up a bit?

No, I never used conditioner with the Stonybrook. My hair is naturally quite oily, and conditioner always makes it look greasy and weighed down, so I don't use it.

Wouldn't oil added to conditioner make it thinner, not thicker?

Hmm, the consistancy would be thinner with an extra liquid, I guess I mean, could I use a dime size amount of oil in my conditioner to aid in detangling? I ask because my cure care I bought is fabulously no scent, but I am not thrilled with its detangling abilities. But I can shave with it, use it as a moisterizer, leave it in, etc etc so that multi-task aspect of the cure care is a definite bonus! if only it removed knots better, I'd be in heaven.
