Apparently my curlies LOVE them some protein 😀 I used V05 Passionfruit smoothie conditioner with soy milk proteins for the first time and WOWZA, I knew my hair was curly but I’d never had them all pop out and be so defined with NOTHING but a cowash. Matter of fact, I’d never had them that curly and defined EVER. And this conditioner only costs about .70 cents, so really, can you go wrong?? I purchased at Walgreens.
edit: In my excitement, I forgot to post ingredients! Thanks to JenellyBean for reminding me in the comments 😛 No ‘cones for the curlies who don’t like those, includes biotin too! Even though that’s the last thing on the list so not sure how MUCH is included. It’s slippery and more on the thin side, so I wouldn’t use as a deep conditioner since I prefer creamy thick ones for that, such as any Aubrey Organics conditioner. But this is great for a cowash sometimes! I also wouldn’t overdo it because of the protein and not wanting a protein imbalance 🙂 But it’s great for maybe every other week.

I have 4a hair mainly with 3c in a patch directly in the center of my head. The 4a curls often just fluff into an afro unless coaxed into a curly pattern, so while it generally looks like a regular ‘fro, the coily curls are there if I actually work to define them, just letting you know what type of hair I have so that you can decide if you want to try the conditioner 🙂
Pics of my hair straight out the shower, no product but the Vo5 used:
The conditioner smells super nice, fresh and fruity. It’s really like a fruit smoothie, so definitely an A on the scent. A for the curl definition and I’ll probably leave some in as a leave in conditioner the next time that I wash my hair with it. Give it a go, girls 😀
