My hair is low porosity too. It has mostly medium thickness in the strand rather than coarse thickness and as a result I have a love hate relationship with shea butter. It is a good styler on damp hair if I want stretched hair but in dc/leave in/ conditioner formulations it is really up in the air half the time how I will like it. My hair does get over conditioned when too much glycerin/agave is present so I will pass on the kbb. It is too expensive, above twenty dollars plus tax, to find out that I can't use it at all.

Thumbs up

The best deep conditioner I can think of is the Honey-Olive-Oil treatment, either on it's own or added to your favorite conditioner. Either way the end result is super soft hair and it's great for all hair types.

HTH!

Yep! I am so lucky I already have that on deck to try. All in all I feel I have a good collection of highly recommended DC'S ready to be tested. Thank you ladies!!

My hair should find it's true love soon enough...

I like SheaMoisture deep treatment masque I've found it goes a lot better for me when I sit under a dryer for 15 min. My hair feels super soft after rinsing with cool water

ETA: @ Reeky, you know I think you may have point concerning balanced deep conditioners. Recently I have decided I don't necessarily need to do a deep treatment every week. This is because my hair has been holding moisture pretty well, it passes the stretch test pretty consistently and breakage has been at a minimum. Given this it may be time to incorporate balanced DC'S. Deep conditioners that can do moisture and protein at the same time.my issue is I really like them to do it at the same time, as in I don't like to have to do a separate moisturizing treatment. I am about to receive the BASK whiskey hair soak. We will see how that goes...
seeee they do make a difference. A straight moisturizing DC will make my hair feel amazing when its dry-er than usual, but when I used them regularly I got inconsistent results & since regularly using protein dcs I havent even had those "dryer than usual" days.. I learned that the best way to get my regular protein is in my DC, as most of my leave ins have no protein. Also since I started DCing with balanced conditioners only my hair overall has been staying perfectly balanced (meaning I no longer have those days where I do everything "right" and my hair comes out dry or is randomly breaking).
I too noticed that I can use a stronger protein product like the mill creek keratin or curl junkie repair me that youd need to follow up w a moisturizing dc after but instead ill follow up with a rich leave in and itll come out fine once dry.

Perfect! That just makes all of the sense! Saves me TIME too! That is very important to me.
Thank you!

I consider my hair to be low to normal porosity. I have tried it seems just about them all, but my favorite deep condtioners are:

Camille Rose Algae Deep Conditioner
Bee Mine Moisturizing Deep Conditioner
Naturelle Grow Marshmallow Root Deep Conditioner
Darcy's Botanicals Pumpkin Seed Conditioner

I second So_Jane's opinion...
Yesterday I tried the honey-olive oil DC for the second time.
I added Yes to Cucumbers to the mix and left it on for an hour.
My hair is looking soooooo much better than the last couple of days (maybe even weeks)

Holy Grail DT:

SheaMoisture SB Masque with oils and honey
Mixed Chicks
Super mayo protein treatment

For my hair, I find using a heating cap makes a world of difference. :-)

The only DC that has really worked up close to my standards is the Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Deep Conditioner. However, I am looking for something more. I'm thinking about trying the Camille Rose Algae Deep Conditioner.

YES! AOHR is now a staple DT of mine I no longer use the other DT's anymore ever since I tried the AOHR. I was sold on the first use.

I miss Redken's Smooth Down Butter Treat!

A conditioner that I've used three times with wonderful results is Living Proof's PHD conditioner. Other possible DC's are Mixed Chicks and Carol's Daughter's Black Vanilla Smoothie.

Keratin Complex deep conditioner Vanilla Bean (made me hungry smelling it).

My hair does not like the products and concoctions most of the natural hair community raves about so I went out on a limb and tried what I think is a salon grade product. Glad i did. ..I was not disappointed. My hair has never retained moisture like this! My hair has never NOT broken off by the handfuls while dangling until I met this product! I no longer fool with leave - ins, creams, messy homemade concoctions....I just use an oil and gel. My life is now simple

Cantu deep treatment masque is the best dc ever! I always apply it while my hair is dry and the slip is out of this world! It defines your curls while nourishing your hair. It has amino silk proteins to smooth and minimize frizz but it's so low on the list even the most protein sensitive person would love this deep conditioner. I'm protein sensitive and it's the bomb.com for me! It's all natural and the only thing I use from the Cantu line (I don't like the ingredients in their other products).
