I have the v05 moisture milk also and was wondering how do you use it for leaving in?

@Tomeshia - using the V05 as a leave in is a little tricky since it has silicone on in it and it coat your hair instead of penetrating it. Mix a little bit with water, essential oils and aloe vera to break it down.

Thanks to you, Hello Hydration is a favorite of mine too. I have a few conditioners from before your HH recommendation and I try to use them up but I always go back to HH.

Hello! I've been natural for almost 4 1/2 years and have only started co-washing last month! I hate it took so long to discover this because I love it. However I've been trying to find the right conditioner to co-wash with. I've been using Giovanni deep moisture (I think that's the name), but I'm not too crazy about it. My hair doesn't feel too moisturized after using it. I recently learned about protein sensitivity. This might apply to me because my hair doesn't do well with coconut oil or aloe vera juice. I try to use products that are as natural as possible. Do you have any recommendations for those that are protein sensitive. These suggetsions sound good, but I'm a bit concerned because many products "commercial" products contain silicones. Do any of these have them to your knowledge? Thanks!
