Conditioners are what I cannot live without. I use them daily for co-washing, conditioning and my secret, for shaving my legs. In my shower there are three levels of conditioners for curly hair I keep available at all times.
The first one that I have in the shower is Elucence Moisture Balancing Conditioner. I have used this one for years. It is my go to daily co-washing product and is the perfect conditioner for co-washing. It gives my 2c curls volume and moisture at the same time without weighing my hair down. It has just the right amount of moisture and weight, not an easy challenge for a conditioner. It's also so inexpensive that I can go through it without worrying about the cost of re-purchasing. Plus, I use it to shave my legs.
My next favorite conditioner is Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Smoothing Conditioner. I have been using this for two years and have never let the bottle run out completely before I purchase another one. I use it as a RO (Rinse Out) and have never been disappointed. It truly zaps the frizz. My hair feels smooth and well moisturized after I use it. Again, it isn't too heavy for my hair which surprised me. It is thick and very concentrated, but it offers just the right amount of moisture to make it a perfect RO conditioner for my 2c curls.
The last, but certainly not the least of my conditioning trio, is Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Moisturizing Conditioner. I use this after I cleanse my hair. It restores the moisture lost by cleansing and adds a serious boost of botanicals. It is thick and creamy. It can even be a challenge to get it out of the bottle. Using it as a semi-deep conditioner has proven to be the most effective way to get the most out of it. I find myself leaving it on for 5-10 minutes in the shower. My curls love this conditioner.
What are your go-to conditioners?
I am always trying new products, but these three conditioners are always in the rotation. They have been close friends to my curls, and I have never been dissatisfied.
