Conditioners are the cornerstone of any healthy-hair regimen. Besides providing moisture, they are used for detangling, co-washing, refreshing, and for frizz-control. Conditioners help to strengthen the hair shaft, enhance curl definition, and impart sheen to your strands. We asked you to vote for your favorite cleansing conditioners, daily conditioners, leave-ins, and deep conditioners for our 2019 Best of the Best Awards, these are the winners.
