Default Cheap Deep Conditioners

Times are rough and I'm on the market for a cheap (but decent quality) deep conditioner. The nearest Sally's is about 2 hours away so Lustrasilk anything isn't really an option. I've heard good things about Pantene's Relaxed and Natural deep conditioner but apparently it's been discontinued

Do you have any suggestions or recommendations?

Now don't quote me on this, but I think Pantene's Time Renewal Replenishing Mask might be similar to the R&N mask which I hope isn't discontinued but I can't find anywhere either.

The time renewal works just as well for my hair. I can't find the R&N mask anywhere either for a few months now in my area. You can always add honey, olive oil and so on to help your conditioners go further.

Some people use pure coconut oil as a deep treatment.

2 tbs of coconut cream concentrate (Tropical Traditions online - a 16-oz jar lasts forever)
2 tbs of extra virgin coconut oil
1 container of plain yogurt
1/2 to 1 container of banana baby food
1 tbs of apple cider vinegar

Melt the first 2 ingredients together in the microwave to soften, the mix in the rest. Apply to hair section by section (it's thick) with your fingers, cover and sit under a heatcap for 30 minutes. Rinse out and enjoy the softness.

I know that the Dollar General store near me sells Lustrasilk and Family Dollar. I don't know if you have a Big Lots but they may have it too....

Rosemary/Sage boiled in water and then cooled. Mix with yogurt, honey or corn syrup, and some oils did good on my hair. A lot of people love coconute milk as a DT...

I'm on a search for a deep conditioner too, one I don't have to make...and outside of LS. I really want to try some blended beauty products.

I recommend Elucence MBC. You can't get it on the ground but it is a cheap deep conditioner that also functions well as a leave-in too.

I've been using the Suave Naturals Coco Condish mixed with oils my hair likes as a deep condish.

I freakin LOVE Pantene's Time Renewal Replenishing Mask!!! I leave it in while I cook dinner on Sundays (maybe for an hour or so) and then rinse with cool water. It makes my curls pop!

I make it fresh, it's quick and you don't need a blender. Makes a cup or so.

To date, my favorite DC comes from Dollar Tree, Herbal Infusions Hair Mayonnaise.

My favourite dt:

1 ripe banana
1 ripe avocado
1 can of cononut milk
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey

Mix everything in blender. I fill about two ice cube trays with these amounts and freeze it. Each time I do a dt I'll thaw two or three cubes.

adding yogurt or coconut milk, oil (I like olive, soybean or hempseed) & honey turns any regular condish into a deep condish (for me anyway)

Don't sleep on ayurvedic herbs either! I've been using these lately and OMG dos my hair feel wonderful

I agree with the other ladies. Homemade DTs are the best! I really doing these:
Avacado+Olive Oil+ a cheap conditioner (Like Suave Naturals)
Honey+Olive Oil (or coconut oil)+ Cheap Conditioner applied warm

You should be able to get Lutrasilk at any hair shop. I got mine at my local hair shop down the street.

How did the Protein and Balsam work for you? Every time I go into Dollar Tree, I'm tempted to purchase this--after all, it's only a dollar!! :-)

i LOVE elucence for everything. a DT, a leave in, a co wash, etc. as a DT i usually add my basic "DT boost ingredients", which are honey, olive oil, veggie glycerine, and melted shea butter.

and a tip for any other elucence users: check to see if you have a beauty alliance near you. they carry elucence products, but they only sell to licensed cosmetologists. so if you go to a salon (or even if you dont), a stylist can pick it up for you and you dont have to keep ordering online.
