The Best Deep Conditioner

Like Tree18Likes

My hair is low porosity and I've basically given up on finding a good moisturizing dc. I think most are just too thick. I want to try Kbb luscious locks but it's too expensive.
I tried the cj repair and my hair felt coated and not moisturized. I think it has shea butter and my hair hates shea butter.

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.

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!
If you want something with the slightest touch of protein and with butters and oils in addition to conditioning agents, you have to try the Darcy's Pumpkin Seed conditioner. My only gripe with that product is it needs to container; it is too thick for the bottle it is in.

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

You all are going to make me try Curl Rehab again lol. All I have to say is it had better have been a bad batch I tried out the last time lol. But yes, in the protein free category it seems to be number one for a lot of people.

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...

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.

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


Hair Type: 3c/4a

Still searching for my staple products. Maybe I can be faithful to a set of products one day.
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. :-)

*experimenting and loving it!


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
Never relaxed

Experimenting in creating my own products.
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).
I'm loving Camille Rose Natural's Coconut Water Deep Conditioner.

Before that, I consistently used Bee Mine's Bee-u-ti-ful Deep Conditioner.
Honorable mention- Darcy's Botanicals Deep Conditioner (not the pumpkin seed).

If you want to be all-Natural and don't mind a little elbow grease;
The Onion PASTE Overnight Pre-Treatment Mask Treatment that I use makes my hair really really soft.
I use it overnight and then apply a honey-olive oil pre-shampoo treatment for 1 hr and co-wash or shampoo that out and then I apply my Yogurt Deep Treatment or Egg protein Deep Treatment -And the end result is super-duper-soft hair!
great recipes at: Onlinealchemieforum.forumotion.com

*But, If I'm feeling lazy, I can get similar results by doing the honey-olive oil pre-treatment and then using Aubrey Organics Blue-Green Algae hair Mask OR Aubrey's GPBconditioner for a great otc finishing deep treatment.
Wish thankful for all the suggestions. I have tried MANY deep conditioners but the curl rehab has to be the best. To everyone that said the darcy botanical is good how the check do you get it out the container? I have a full bottle (only used it once and didn't like it) but I have to turn into hull to get it out.
