Tired of buying deep conditioners that don't work?

Believe me, Coily Girl - I feel you. It's challenging to navigate online, virtual aisles to find the perfect deep conditioning mask for your curls, let alone one that doesn't boast a high-dollar price tag. If the main deterrent to finding the best deep conditioning mask for your coils has been exorbitant product pricing, your worries are over!

So that you don't have to break your bank on maybe-baby conditioners, I've tested several of them on your behalf. I'd like to share my favorite 4C coil-loving deep conditioning masks with you because I know how hard it is to find your perfect hair treatment.

Please keep in mind that this post is NOT sponsored. These are the deep conditioning masques that actually work for my 4C coils and I had to share my insights with you! So, enough about me - let's get down to business!

4C Curl Love: Deep Conditioning Masks for Under $20

Every Strand  Shea & Coconut Oil Deep Moisture Hair Masque

This masque is EVERYTHING and it only costs $7.99!

Okay... this is the masque that I had to talk myself out of using every day of the week. It's still a struggle.

I'm crazy about the way the Every Strand  Shea & Coconut Oil Deep Moisture Hair Masque loves on my coily hair. As a 4C, you know exactly how difficult it is to find the right combination of products that will give your curls 'slip' so when you find one that does, things can get a little out of hand. This is especially true for my coily girls that share in the low porosity struggle. Seriously. The struggle is aggressive.

So indulge your coils with this deep moisture hair masque because you'll get the Every Strand promise of "silky, shiny, and seductive hair" for only $7.99!

SheaMoisture Mongongo & Hemp Seed Oils High Porosity Moisture-Seal Masque

Nourishment in a $12.99 Tub!

Although the SheaMoisture Mongongo & Hemp Seed Oils Hight Porosity Moisture-Seal Masque wasn't formulated for my specific porosity level, I didn't let it stop me from trying the masque as a wash day deep treatment on my low porosity coils. As fortune would have it, my stubbornness paid off! Since my 4Cs get the most moisture from my shower-cap-covering-coils-for-thirty-minutes method, I figured I'd use this masque this way. After a cleanse and condition, I applied the masque, covered my curls for thirty minutes (yes, that's a full episode of The Office), and let it soak into my strands.

When I washed the masque out, my curls were soft and perfectly primed for setting my curls for the work week's Bantu Knot Out. I got sooooo many compliments on my hair that week sigh I need to get more of this stuff. You can get it right now for $12.99 by clicking the above product image!

What I love the most about this deep moisture masque, other than its delightful coconut scent, is that one of its key ingredients is Vitamin E. According to writer Aleya Bamda, "Vitamin E is an essential vitamin for healthy hair because it helps with blood circulation and leads to a healthier scalp." Yes, coily! That means that your healthy scalp will be in prime condition to produce super soft, vitamin-nourished 4C coils. I really love setting my coils into two-strand twists after using this masque because it gives them that added layer of strength (you can really feel it after washing the masque out).

You can give your hair the VIP-deep conditioning treatment it deserves for $12.99 when you visit SHOP NaturallyCurly.

Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment - Citrus Lavender

Gerilyn's 4Cs are super fans of this $16.95 deep conditioner!

When I really began embracing my curls (after the umpteenth big chop), I wanted to make sure they were healthy and happy. However, the marketplace is inundated with so many options that I really didn't know which product I should try first! Understanding my look of pure and utter frustration, NaturallyCurly Co-Founder Michelle Breyer recommended the Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment... and when I say "recommended" I mean that she grabbed the bottle and RAVED about this conditioner's merits. With that powerful introduction to this deep conditioner, I had no choice but to give it a try.

Yeah. Michelle was right. This stuff is legit.

Now, although it's a deep conditioning treatment... I didn't follow the instructions completely and used it as my daily leave-in for several months because it smells gooooooood, it keeps coils corkscrewed for days, and I just love it love it love it. I think that you will, too. You can grab a bottle from SHOP NaturallyCurly for $16.95 today. Don't forget to tell me how you use it for your 4Cs: as a deep conditioning masque and/or a leave-in!

ApHogee Curlific! Texture Treatment

ApHogee Curlific! Texture Treatment (8 Oz.) SHOP NaturallyCurly
YOU'LL GET A WHOLE LOTTA MOISTURE FOR JUST $9!

To finish up my list of favorites, I have to tell you about the ApHogee Curlific! Texture Treatment. This is the treatment that you will freak out about on a weekly basis and will cry over once you've used the entire jar. Yep - real tears.

Why? BECAUSE THIS TREATMENT DOESN'T JUST MOISTURIZE. IT DEFINES AND SHAPES YOUR TIGHTLY COILED STRANDS.

Seriously. I cannot express my enthusiasm enough for this treatment. It's given my 4Cs intense definition (even the weird straggling hairs that need to be trimmed because I haven't visited my stylist in ages). And although 4C curls tend to be super defined by nature, this particular treatment adds a visible layer of shine that simply doesn't occur for our texture. It's just brilliant, ladies. Truly. And it only costs nine bucks.

There's no reason to wait anymore to buy it. Just get over to SHOP NaturallyCurly to fall in super deep love with this jar of epicness. You're welcome.
