Hey Ladies!

I wanted to create a running list of our most beloved product: conditioner!

The categories are:

Best Co-wash
Best Deep Conditioner
Curl Popper
Super Smoother
Best Detangler

I think that covers everything but feel free to add a category. Also... can we please keep the abbreviations to a minimum. All the ABCD AOHSR CDRN XYZ gets confusing for some lol

Happy Voting!

Best Co-wash: Suave Tropical Coconut-
Smells good, super cheap, available everywhere and can double as a leave in when in a pinch.
Best Deep Conditioner: ??? I don't really do this.
Curl Popper: Mill Creek Botanicals Henna Conditioner- Best accidental purchase ever! I came out of the shower with the softest, defined ringlets I've ever seen! The henna extract and keratin in it seems to form smooth pretty curls. If you need to breathe some life into your curls this is it.
Super Smoother??? I need one!
Best Detangler: Aubrey Organics White Camelia
The Denman goes straight through with no problems.

Thanks Dawn! but what is WDT???

[QUOTE=jsocurleigh;849663]Hey Ladies!

I wanted to create a running list of our most beloved product: conditioner!

The categories are:

Best Co-wash
Best Deep Conditioner
Curl Popper
Super Smoother
Best Detangler

Best Co-wash - VO5 Strawberries and cream
Best Deep conditioner- Matrix Biolage Conditioning Balm
Best Curl Popper - Conditioner
Best Super Smoother - Conditioner and Jane Carter Nourish and Shine and wet/damp hair
Best Detangler - See co-wash and deep conditioner
My favorite products (and ingredients because I do lots of mixing and layering) are:

Best Co-wash: V05 Strawberries & Cream and TJ Nourishing Moisture

Best Deep Conditioner: Most of these are homemade and/or layered commercial products. My base ingredients/products are a combination of Essential Balms, Aubreys Organics, Shea Butter, Carrier Oils, Honey, Coconut Oil........I favor 100% natural ingredients.

Curl Popper: My co-wash conditioners and a AVC rinse do it for me. It doesn't take much to make my knotty curls pop however I need to use a gel mix (normally IC Fantasia) to elongate and take care of frizz.

Super Smoother: I don't do too much smoothing, I use IC Fantasia on my puffs.

Best Detangler: My co-wash conditioners and deep conditioners usually do it for me. However I usually only finger comb while washing.

I like to try to keep it simple and purchase products that I can get locally.

I just purchased some Oyins (which I had to purchase on line but I love what I read about there products) and Carol's daughter products so I can't really speak on them just yet.

4A&B -- Henna and the entire Essential Balms product line; lately Carol's Daughter honey mimosa & black vanilla leave-in. Staple products are SheaMoisture, Aubrey Organics and Trader Joes Norish Spa conditioner, ACV and IC Fantasia Gel. I'm also Mixtress (I love making my own hair concoctions )

Be encouraged -- Cuzz Fuzz is what it Duzz!!

Best Co-wash: I shampoo, but if I didn't need to, I think I'd be going with the Suave Tropical Coconut
Best Deep Conditioner: Blended Beauty Herbal Reconditioner
Curl Popper: clumped more than usual with AO White Camelia which I can't stand the smell of and am allergic to
Super Smoother: ?
Best Detangler: have not been wowed yet, but I always have an easier time after I let that deep conditioner above work its magic
layer cake of tight, spongy and silky/thready S strands that kink more than they coil
spiced with a few spiral coils and non-curling waves
mostly medium and fine with a sprinkle of coarse strands
protein is yummy
Good idea Jsocurleigh

Best Co-wash: Elucence MBJ and Abba Gentle
Best Deep Conditioner: Bentonite clay w/ burdock, slippery elm, marshmallow tea and yogurt. It helps w/ shrinkage which helps w/ detangling.
Curl Popper: Kinky-curly of course and Elucence MBJ
Super Smoother: Aloe vera gel+Kiss My Face Uppermanagement gel It's even better w/ the marshmallow+slippery elm+ burdock root tea poured on before.
Best Detangler:Elucence MBJ, Aubrey Organics HR, kinky-curly knot today, Abba Moisture condish.
if luvin KCKT and KCCC is wrong I don't wanna b right
