Need deep conditioner recommendations!!

I've seen a few threads like this before and I've looked through most of them, but most of the DCs weren't exactly what I was looking for...

I have thick, porous 4a hair with coarse strands, right at APL, that tends to be dry. I currently use AOHSR, and it's pretty good, but I still feel like i can get more out of my DTs. I've also tried SM DT Masque and it didn't do anything for me.

If any of you would be willing to help, here's what I'm looking for:

-at least 8 oz. of product and no more than $16. I'm pretty tight with my money, and I don't like having to re-purchase products every three weeks

-very moisturizing, NOT protein-rich. It can have some protein (i know aohsr does), but it cannot be protein rich. Also, no coconut oil.

-available in stores; no 'online-only' or homemade, please!

-no 'cones or parabens

Thanks!!

I'm not a 4a but my dt is Sally's knockoff of biolage conditioning balm and it's 16 oz for under 7 bucks

I second the GVP conditioning balm (Sally's) / Biolage conditioning balm (if you don't have a Sally's nearby). Also - I recently discovered a new love - L'Oreal Eversleek Deep Conditioner. It was only $9 and you can find it at grocery stores, drug stores, Ulta, etc. I find this to be more moisturizing than the Biolage conditioning balm, which is saying a lot because that is quite moisturizing too!

I have 3b/3c hair. And the GVPCB wasn't moisturizing enough to be a deep conditioner. Go buy Proclaim Argan Oil masque from sallys. It's legit. And very moisturizing. Especially if you add an oil. It comes in a tub.

Ugh man..I haven't used it since going CG so I couldn't remember. Maybe your best bet is to make a deep conditioner. Instead of purchasing one.

IMO the best deep conditioner is Jessicurl deep treatment. I know that line tends to be pretty natural and they definitely do not use cones.

Curl Junkie curl rehab is a close second for me - also cone and protein free and generally amazing.

Sorry, just saw your price requirements! I know the Jessicurl and CJ are on the expensive end, but they last me forever because a little goes a long way and I only use them 1x per week or less. I know there are some recipes for homemade conditioner but I've never tried them - the curly girl handbook might have some ideas!
