Types 2B to 3B: What conditioner do you use?
I have fine blonde hair, type 3a/b, and I really need a good go-to conditioner that won't weigh my hair down. I've recently committed to the CG method, and I've learned that my hair is easily over conditioned (a very new concept to me). This leads to weighed down, oily looking, "mushy" feeling hair that is just not cute. Ingredients like Coconut Oil and Shea Butter are just too heavy for me. I need a CG conditioner that is light, yet moisturizing. I also kind of need it to be affordable enough for regular purchase-- let's says $1/oz preferred.Any suggestions for me? I really appreciate the help!
Hi Curlygirl 042! DevaCurl makes a lightweight conditioner called Delight that is great for looser curls and waves. It works on the same principle as the other Deva conditioners but is the most lightweight of the three. It is made with rice protein to keep your fine hair strong and shouldn't be too heavy. I would definitely give it a try!! A little goes a long way, so you should get good use out of a standard-size bottle. Good luck! :)
Thanks Nicolepaige! I was actually using DevaCurl One Condition back before they launched Delight. It was pretty awesome, and I'm sure Delight is perfect. Deva's a little on the pricey side for me, though. I probably will use Deva as my "special occasion" conditioner, but I think I need to alternate with something less expensive for everyday. Thanks!!
Hi! I have 3a to 3b hair. I use Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Hydrating Conditioner and the Black Vanilla Shampoo on a regular basis. Both products are sulfate and silicone free. The Carol's Daughter brand is affordable considering the high quality of their products. It's $11 for a 12 fluid oz bottle of the conditioner at the store I buy it from. It's sold at Target and Walmart in my town. I also use the Deva Curl No Poo about once a month along with Deva Curl One Condition for extra hydration.My hair only feels weighed down when I use too many gels and oils after washing my hair, which is why I avoid putting too many products in my hair. "Less is more" is definitely the key to keeping my hair healthy and preventing build-up & weighed down curls. Good luck with finding a good, reasonably priced conditioner that works well with your curls! :)
I use briogeo curl charisma conditioner and it smells like heaven and leaves my hair soft, shiny and manageable I would highly recommend :)
