yes to cucumbers
I believe I had mentioned before that I stopped using TRESemme conditioner because they had changed their products and discontinued the one I used. I tried one bottle of the new stuff and threw away half of it because my hair hated it. So then I went to Suave Aloe Vera & Gensing. It has dimethicone, but it was far down the ingredient list so I thought I’d try it and see, at least to have something to get by with until I found another good one. At first I loved it! (typical, I know) But by the end of the second bottle, my hair was feeling really waxy and wasn’t behaving well at all. I washed with baking soda and was able to use it a little longer until I could find something to replace it. After that, it only took half a bottle to make it feel waxy again. 😦
I found some at Walgreen’s called Yes to Cucumbers and Yes to Carrots. (Apparently, there is Yes to Tomatoes too, but Walgreen’s didn’t have it.) I read the labels and they seemed to be full of plant extracts and oils with NO -cones!! YAY!!! I bought the cucumber one because I liked the smell of it better, even though it’s for color-treated hair. It’s more expensive than your regular Walmart conditioner, I believe it was about $8 for a 16 oz bottle. That’s pretty normal for an organic product though. I’ve used almost half a bottle and I really like it so far. Hopefully this will last! By the way, their shampoos are sulfate-free as well.
As an added bonus, the lady that works at Walgreen’s gave me a coupon for $2 off $10 or more of Yes To, so I got a package of Yes to Cucumbers facial cleansing wipes almost free! I love free! 😀 I really like them too! I can even take off my eyeliner and mascara with them and it doesn’t burn my eyes. That in itself is amazing. Here is a link to Yes To products website.
