Default Best Curl Junkie conditioner

I love Curl Junkie products and I've been using the Strengthening Conditioner but I want to try a daily conditioner without protein. Is there one that you particularly recommend and why? Aloe fix was the only CJ product that I didn't like.

I've been using MopTop daily conditioner which is nice but I'd like to try one from CJ.

Thanks much!

i use both curl rehab and deep fix as daily conditioners!! and leave ins sometimes. but i have very dry hair. so dry that my hair actually loves the honey butta leave in!! it curls like crazy with it. again, my hair is dry. i would not recommend it to all.

try the argan & olive oil conditioner
or the smoothing conditioner (different from the smoothing lotion which has lots of glycerin in it is and is great in mid dews).

ah, a good one to use as a daily then just leave it all in is beauticurls leave in conditioner! don't worry about leaving in too much, it never happens!

and i think the curl rehab is good as a daily and leave in, it has good enhancement.

Great info, rbb. Did I mention that your hair is the prettiest, shiniest color?

I love the Argan & Olive oil. So much so that I'm debating another purchase over using my usual Y2C when the bottle's done.

Hi MissBanjo. I'm going to try the argan and oil. It gets great reviews.

I like using Curl Rehab as a rinse out, especially after lots of swimming and in the winter.

thanks! i owe the shine all to marsha!! my hair loves her products. the color i owe to my parents (mostly my dad), mother nature, and jeepcurlygurl for her tip in one of these threads about ardell red/gold corrector. i just add it to some cj argan & olive oil conditioner every so often and it keeps the yellow away and because i can use whatever conditioner i want, it does not dry out my hair.

Ok, I'm going to toss in a wrench.

The Curl Assurance Smoothing Conditioner is an good daily RO, but its a great LI. You don't have to worry about getting OC too quickly or putting on too much (some of the other conditioners foam a bit when your hands are heavy). Penetrates well for all porosities, and smells great too.

Actually the CJ daily strengthening conditioner is the only one I don't like! It seems to make my hair frizzy for some reason. For daily conditioners, I alternate between CJ smoothing and CJ argan and olive oil. I honestly can't tell which one I prefer; I really love both of them.

For deep treatments, CJ curl rehab is fabulous; I use it mainly in low dews, and ocassionally even as a leave-in when it's really cold. I also adore the CJ repair me! as a deep protein treatment; it's so moisturizing that it doesn't need to be followed by another conditioner.

nat -- i've had this in the back of my head since i read it, and today i brought it to the front of my head and used the smoothing conditioner as a leave in --
WOW! just the right consistency, moisture..... once again, you've hit it right on!

Another vote for the smoothing conditioner as RO and LI.
