Deep conditioners

Hey everybody, I recently just cut my hair and i'm trying to keep it healthy but can't seem to find any good deep conditioners that are not too expensive. Do any of you have any recommendations for deep conditioners (preferably at drugstores) or any good at home recipes for a deep conditioner? My hair and I would truly appreciate any feedback

I recently purchased Curl Junkie's Curl Rehab and I'm in love with it. It doesn't sit on top of my hair it actually penetrates my hair and scalp. The slip is also incredible. It's not a drugstore conditioner but a little goes along the way
Products I'm currently :
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia (Vanilla Latte scent)
  • Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk
  • Certified Organic Coconut Oil
  • Karen's Body Beautiful Heavenly Jojoba Oil
Staple Deep Conditioners: Giovanni Direct Leave-in and Karen's Body Beautiful Luscious Locks Hair Mask

Recent newbie to the Curly Girl Method
6 months post relaxer. I will be 7 months post September 17 !!

Under Construction
Home: honey and olive oil
Store: shea moisture purification masque (black label in case I screwed up the name), carols's daughter smoothie mixed with olive oil, surprisingly the lustrasilk cholesterol one is decent as well. Good luck!
I found that Organic root stimulator, Replenishing Pak, is awesome!

It imparts moisture and gives my Fine Porous strands a nice light shot of protien.

Plus its only $1.29 to try a sample pak
If you dont like it, its only about a dollar

After I shampoo, I dont use a rise out conditioner, I just dry, by wrapping a old t-shirt around it (less frizz vs. towel drying). Then on clean damp hair I apply the PAK, put on a plastic shower cap and a beenie for an 1+ or just 15min under the dryer, if Im short on time. Then rise, And wow! juicy curls everytime!!

I have used this method with the following and had good results:

Aussie 3min
Mane & Tail Deep Moisture (seal with EVOO)
Yes to Carrots(seal with EVOO)
Plain full fat yogurt+EVOO
3c, fine, porous,MBL
Pre: EVCO Poo: GTTT DC:AO GPB, TJ Nourish Spa+EVOO
LI: Cantu Shea butter LI, YesToCarrots,(AVJ+H2O) Spritz
Style: AVG, Eco Seal: Qp Mango & Olive oil, Shea AloeMix
Another vote for honey & EVOO.
I have tried all the SM masques but my favorite is the Yucca & Aloe one (green label). It is protein enriched & I add EVCO to it.
*Natural 3C*
Wash: Liquid African Black Soap, BS/ACV
Conditioner: SM SB, YTCarrots, Organix Coconut Milk
Pre-Poo: Honey & EVOO
DC: AOHR
PT:
Super Mayo Deep Conditioning Treatment
Moisturizer: CURLS Souffle
Leave-In: KCKT
Gel:

Although my hair was soft with the products in, usually if something works well my hair will remain soft when i wash it out. But i've heard great things about their masque's so i'll def gonna buy some this week, thanks!

Yes I have tried all the masque. The purification one left build-up and I use the Yucca & Aloe once a month cause it has protein. But now I am using the SM Shea Butter Masque weekly and my hair is thriving! I also add honey, grapeseed oil, Tresemme Naturals avocado & aloe vera conditioner (just to thin it out a bit), and EVCO. LOVES IT!

Another vote for the ORS Replenish Pak. LOVE the smell and feels very moisturizing. Usually I'll dump a little coconut oil in it.

When I'm lazy and don't feel like going out to the store to buy it, I'll grab my tresseme naturals and mix it with coconut oil and honey. Works almost as well!
I know you said drugstore and this isnt cheap in my opinion i think its about 20.00 and at aveyou you can use a coupon code but curl junkie curl rehab is worth the money. I normally wouldnt spend that much on hair stuff but its def worth it. when I cant afford that I just add evoo and honey warm it up in the microwave for a couple seconds add in my regular conditioner (tressame naturals) put it on and sit under a hooded dryer for 20 min.
another way is id just put tons of conditioner in my hair, i do four big sections ( i do that all the time anyway either way) then go back over each section with evoo, do big chunky twist to each section heat cap and under hooded dryer for 20 min.

naptural85 has a couple home made ones on there with yogurt.

Its a beauty, natural hair, food, family, and life all combined into one blog. I took a break from it for awhile but I recently started blogging again and Im addicted!

my tumblr natural inspirations and beauty: http://sophiams85.tumblr.com/

does your hair like protein? that will make it easier to make or pick something out. im protein sensitive so i just use my normal conditioner and add different oils to it and a bit of honey and/or aleo vera and/or shea butter, (depends what i got). if ou like protein joghurt, moyo avadado banana. using the oils is far quicker and simplier for me then mixing something.

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
I like equal parts honey, oils (evoo, co, or both) and suave conditioner. It's an awesome, quick, and cheap DT.

high porosity (from coloring)

Shampoo: Mop Top Gentle Shampoo
Co-wash: Chistophe Robin Lemon Cleansing Cream

LI: Jessicurl Aloeba
