Default Deep conditioner recommendations

Hi,
I'm looking for a new deep conditioner and wanted suggestions.

Hair type - 3b, very porous, med elasticity and overall healthy (just a few split ends and bunch of single strand knots).

I live in NYC and dews are often crazy high or crazy low. So, I need something low on glycerine (doesn't have to be glycerine-free). And also low on protein since I use a different PT when needed. I am looking for moisture, softness, silkiness.

Looking at Jessicurl DC or Curl Junkie Curl Rehab but open to others as well.

Thanks!

Have you looked at aubrey Organics honeysuckle rose? I leave it in during my shower, and my hair's been a lot softer.

I'm 3B with porous, dry hair. The deep conditioners I like are in my signature.

I've recently added Kiehl's Olive Fruit Oil Reparative Mask, and Curl Junkie Deep Fix to my DT rotation. I really like CJDF and will repurchase. Only tried Kiehl's once and it was pretty good. I am not sure if any of the ones I use will meet your ingredient needs, but they are listed online.

SereneCurls - yes I have used AOHR and it does soften my hair but it doesn't seem to work well when I use it as a DC as normal. Maybe it's the coconut milk but it seems to make my hair extra frizzy and I don't get silky feeling from it. I do use it as a DT pre-poo sometimes just for the softness. Thanks

Spiralli - thanks. I'll look at CJDF and see if it's low protein enough.
