What is the HEAVIEST (most moisturising) conditioner you've ever used?
 
I've realised that despite being quite fine, my hair really likes heavy conditioners. They give me shiny, bouncy, relatively frizz-free curls. I can use AOHR daily and as a leave-in as well without any problems. The thing is, I can never quite find a conditioner heavy enough to be a true DT for me. I seem incapable of getting over-conditioned. :dontknow:

So here's my question - what's the heaviest (most moisturising) conditioner you've ever used?

For me, I think AOHR is the heaviest I've used, though I rarely use it as a DT.

OC (DevaCurl.. not care) is my HG and it fulfills everything. Cowash, LI/styler (very small amt), DT (just did that with it yesterday with a little coconut milk).

I have very thick hair that's coarse and its like taking a moisture bath. I love it!

I think I'm in a similar position -- nothing really heavy enough. I've been using AOHR mixed with about 1/4c. olive oil and 1-2TB coconut oil as a DT. I pack it on to the extent that it's more like a mask. I think I could use most other peoples' DTs for spritz and condish :tongue:

YES. What I don't get is that instead of weighing my very (very) fine hair down, these heavy conditioners just make it happier. That goes against just about everything I know about hair - what gives? (The only thing that seems to weigh it down is too much extra oil).

pedaheh 03-21-2010 03:07 PM

Me too. I have fine hair. I don't seem to ever get over conditioned and a DT as a rinse out seems like a great idea.

Double YES! I get my biggest, awesomest hair as a result of super heavy condishes. And every time I have ever tried to use a light / volumizing condish, I wind up stringy. :dontknow: I'm-a so confused!

As an experiment this morning, I used my CO-wash White Rain Citrus condish as a leave in and I have the saddest, hangiest curls. Yesterday I used olive oil and my hair was enormous and bouncy.

I've done the same thing before with the same results. I can only get away with light conditioners if they're glycerin or honey heavy and it's really humid out.

Actually - this sounds crazy - but I find that going from lightest to heaviest product actually works best. Like, use Suave to co-wash, a light conditoner to rinse-out, and then use a super-heavy leave in and use my stylers from light to heavy as well and that'll give me massively awesome curls. Do it the other way around (heavy to light, aside from co-wash), and they'll be weird. Go figure. :scratch:

Freeman smoothing conditioner. Its probably the thickest, heaviest cone free conditioner I have ever used.

QuirkyCurl 03-21-2010 05:22 PM

Omg finally, I have the same issues you do hairwise, my hair is fine in the front and a little less fine in the back but this over-moisturizing thing seems to be a myth for my head. What people consider deep treatments seem too light for my hair.:dontknow:

kathymack 03-21-2010 05:24 PM

I had a lot of difficulty finding conditioners that I feel are moisturizing enough for my fine hair, too. I always thought if was because I'm low porosity.

I agree, the AO conditioners are pretty heavy. Others that I'd put in that range are: CJ jar conditioners, Komaza Califia Conditioner, Spiral Solutions Caitlin's Conditioner, Jasmine's Shea Butter Conditioner and Shescentit Green Tea & Hibiscus.

+1 till I found OC. I dont find the AO conditioners heavy though. Hmm... maybe its just the AOHR thats not heavy?

Suburbanbushbabe 03-21-2010 08:08 PM

As a conditioner and a leave in I use EO Rose Chamomile. My favorite DT is Mop Top Deep Conditioner. It's amazing. I'd leave it in too, but it has mint or peppermint and while it gives a nice tingle, you gotta wash it out.

Greatcurls 03-21-2010 08:30 PM

CJ Hibiscus and Banana Deep Fix Moisturizing Conditioner, Mop Top Deep Conditioner, Aquage Healing Conditioner, Blended Beauty Herbal Reconditioner, MyHoneyChild Honey and Horsetail Reconstructor are heavy for me.

Alexjoujou 03-21-2010 10:49 PM

Most moisturizing to me are the Komaza Califia Conditioners, the BellaCurl Conditioner, DT, and Leave In and the Spiral Solution DT and Caitlin's Condish.

We also find the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition to have a good amount of moisture and the Mop C Hydrating Condish is also heavier and more moisturizing.

tinymandolin 03-21-2010 11:05 PM

Good, I thought I was the weird one around here. I got CJ Daily Fix recently, and read a lot of posters saying they can only use it once a week or so because it leaves their hair over-conditoned... I think I could use that stuff every day and never be over conditioned.

I just bought AOHR recently and, as a conditioner, it didn't feel heavy at all to me. Just like a regular conditioner. Not overly-conditioning to my hair at all...

Now, being over-proteined? Yes. I can be that. I found that out after using a conditioner that had protein in it and found my hair felt very dry and brittle. Then I switched to the AOHR, which has no protein, and my hair feels muuuuch better... :blob5:

oddityofwings 03-22-2010 07:29 AM

Ooh, all sorts of new conditioners to try! You people are such PJ enablers. :p I've recently ordered the CJ Deep Fix; we'll see how that one goes first.

Funny - in addition to my hair's inability to get over-conditioned, I've never noticed any tendency towards over-proteining, either. Apparently my head is insatiable.

I use Spiral Solutions Deeply Decadent moisturizing conditioner mixed with 2tbsp olive oil and 2tbsp honey (heated). Its the most moisturizing treatment I've ever used. Also, I leave in on for at least an hour with some heat it works great!

Demelza 03-22-2010 01:40 PM

Definitely Spiral Solutions Deeply Decadent. I love it!

Nallia 03-22-2010 02:23 PM

oddityofwings, like you I can never seem to over-condition or over-protein my hair. It drinks up everything. None of the conditioners most people find heavy seem heavy to me at all. My hair is very fine and is porous.

I just ordered Spiral Solutions Caitlin's Conditioner because it seems to be heavier than Deeply Decadent based on the ingredients. My order should be here before the end of the week (which also includes Deeply Decadent), so I will let you know! :)

afrosheenqueen 03-22-2010 05:05 PM

I like Blended Beauty Herbal Reconditioner and Mop Top Deep and Daily Conditioners
