Deep Conditioners for Damaged Hair?

I want a deep conditioner because my hair is really damaged from straightening it. I know Aussie has some, and so does Garnier Fructis, as well as other more expensive brands. Any recommendations for the best one you've tried?
I've heard good things about Jessicurls' Deep Treatment. It has shea butter which works well for dry hair.

CO wash: A-O GPB LYY, Salon Care Honey Almond, Devacurl OC, Acure Argan Stem Cell+Argan Oil, Mill Creek Botanicals Keratin Repair

I have very dry hair and I have tried a lot of different DT's but the one that I like the best is the Mixed Chicks Deep Treatment. I put my hair in a pony tail coat the entire pony wrap it in a bun, cover my head with a scarf and sleep like that, in the morning it leaves my hair soft. Try it!!!
I have shoulder length 3c curls thanks to my grandfather who is french and bohemian.

My Staples are: Curl Junkie Coco Coffee Curl Creme, Mixed Chicks Leave-In, Joico Curl Activator, lots of Deep Treatments....
you can also give your normal conditioner a boost with honey, hair butter, and/or oil.

If you're interested in protein treatments, I suggest Hask Henna & Placenta. It could be found at Sally's.

You probably should get a trim depending on the extent of the damage because hair products can't make miracles. I like Cholesterol by Queen Helene. Cheap and doesn't weigh hair down or make it too soft like deep condishes often do.

Jessicurl Weekly deep treatment - I actually use a dab of it on dry hair.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.

The Jessicurl WDT is pretty good. The Kenra Moisturizing Condish is a good DT too.

I love that. Thanks, Rudeechick
I am from Argentina, but I have lived in USA for 3 years. My hair is different here and I had to learn everything again.

I use Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner, ridiculously thick (like, I have trouble getting it out of the bottle kind of thick), and really moisturizing. Check out a local health food store.

I was just about to suggest aubrey organics too ... softest and best hair I ever had was when I accidentally used too much AO White Camellia conditioner and I had to leave it in my hair all day at work because it didn't fully rinse out and left a lot of oil in my hair ... then low-poo'd at home. wow, soft hair. This one is protein-free not sure if that's up your alley but my hair definitely liked it.
nexxus emergencee and then a moisturizing deep conditioner like jessicurl WDT
4a hair. MOD CG routine.

-Back on the (rajasthani) henna train! My hair is so much better now.
-KBB hair butter mixed with Hairveda Cocasta oil
-Spiral Solutions Deeply Decadent
but, Lush's H'Suan Wen Hua really gets hair soft, so soft that my curls fall out if I touch them too much after styling. The effects last for about 2 days.



Ouidad's DT is also really good.

Hair Loves: EcoStyler Olive Oil Gel, Protein Conditioners
Hair Hates: Sulfates, Daily Hair Drenchings with Water, Gels with alot heavy PVP's
I loved the one from Pro Naturals Moroccan Argan oil. I used it after I had a phase of "must-straighten-my-hair-every-day" so my hair became really crappy. I used their shampoo, conditioner, argan oil and hair mask. Got my hair back in no time
My HG condish is the GVP conditioning balm from Sally's. It's a knock off of matrix biolage, so hydrating and great! Only $6!

That said, when dealing with damage you may also want to use some protein as other ladies have recommended. The balm is more for hydration
My hair: 3b, corkicelli, medium porosity, medium texture, medium/thick density

Co-wash: DevaCurl NoPoo
Rinse-out: GVP Conditioning Balm
Leave-in: KCKT, Suave Naturals Coconut, or my rinse-out!
Gel: SS FHG (my new HG!!)... I also like HESMU, AIF, CJ CQ, BRHG, CJ PP and the occasional LALSG

Likes: Plopping!
Dislikes: Glycerin

CG and loving it!
