Default Deep conditioning product

I'm in need of good deep conditioning product. I need one that is CG approved. I just used DevaCurl Heaven and Hair.....and it sucked!!! I'm a fan of their products but this one was a flop!

Welcome! What are your hair properties? Ingredients that penetrate so truly deep condition include coconut oil, olive or avocado oils, hydrolysed proteins, ceramides.

Heaven in hair doesn't work that way for me either. It works well for me as a leave-in/styler, though.
For deep treatments, my favorite is Curl Junkie Curl Rehab (strawberry)

Firefox, I have no idea what my hair properties are. :/ all I know it's thick, semi corse with spirally curls. 85% of the time it feels dry.

Check out the stickies here on this forum and the information on the Live Curly Live Free website, you need to know your properties especially porosity to choose products successfully.

Heaven in Hair has little in it that will do much, a fair bit of glycerin which is humectant (attracts water) and that is about it. Little to nothing that will penetrate or patch repair nor much to hold the water in (occlusives/ oils and butters). What specifically sucked about it? Did it do nothing or something but not what you expected?

Don't expect instant gratification from CG friendly products it's about choosing good ingredients and playing the long game. With commercial products the instant gratification often comes from silicones not actually improving the health or condition of hair.

Default deep conditioner

Its expensive but Ouidad deep conditioner is really good. You just leave it on 12 minutes using a plastic cap, put some heat on a few minutes and the hair comes out soft. I got a few of them when she had a good sale of 25% off.

Firefox, the Heaven in hair made my scalp burn and itch. The other products don't do that. I've been natural for 3 wks and my hair has been awesome until Heaven in Hair. I thought I would do a deep treatment once a week...it won't be that one......

Eeep! What about making up your own deep conditioner with ingredients you know you are safe with? Just use your regular conditioner as a base, add some coconut/ avocado/ olive oil (all can penetrate), honey and/ or aloe vera gel (both humectants).

You might also review your diet, that can strengthen the skin barrier and calm inappropriate immune responses. Essential fatty acids especially from oily fish are key. Plenty of new mums forget to take care of themselves when they are busy with their little one.
