Question Best deep conditioner for transition?

Especially now that it is summer time I am desperate to find an amazing deep conditioner since I am transitioning and have many different textures on my head
My natural hair is 4a and I have more relaxed hair now than natural
My relaxed hair gets really dry form the sun...

Thanx!

Hi jjnellie

Have you tried Jessicurls Weekly Deep Treatment, it did wonders for my dryness and a few other curlies on this board. I don't have that dry brittle feel anymore, I also put a little on the ends at night before I scarf and go to bed, and in the morning its nice and moisturized.

HTH

I do a couple of different things with DT's. I rotate a couple of different products. I mostly use Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner, Pantene's Relaxed & Natural, and Queen Helen cholesterol treatment. I know...lotsa people absolutely DISLIKE Pantene but my hair loves it for some reason.

When I DT, I put the conditioner on 1st. Then I add a tsp of coconut oil & EVOO on top of the conditioner and wear a plastic cap for an hour (sometimes I sleep in it). My hair eats it up and is glorious the next day.

This not a cheap DT (many good ones aren't) but I have found it adds lovely elasticity to the hair and that's what you need for stretched out relaxed hair - Blended Beauty Herbal Reconditoner. One jar lasts 5-6 treatments.

Another good and cheaper way to conditioner hair (I found) is clay hair mask: Bentonite or Rhassoule clay and water (rosewater's good) mixed with any of the following, alone or combined: honey, pure carrier oil, a few drops of essential oil (rosemary's good), plain yogurt, pureed banana (or baby food banana), a tsp of ACV, coconut milk. Use under a heat cap and rinse extremely thoroughly; Follow with a rinseout conditioner so all the mixture is out of your hair. Enjoy your hair.

I wish I had found Silicon Mix earlier in my transition because it softens the hair like no bodies business! I use it as a light/medium protein treatment alone or mixed with Miss Keys 10en1 & Emergencia. HTH

When I was transitioning I loved Lustrasilk cholestrol condish. I liked the mango and the sheabutter. It is cheap too, like uner 4 dollars for a large tub. I believe the Shea Butter one is CG. But the others are not.

I didnt go CG until I Bc'd.
