With approximately a year of being “natural” under my belt, I have finally managed to get my hair routine under control. I no longer buy every new product that I see because I am satisfied with the products that I am using. There is, however, one exception–deep conditioners. I am still searching for the perfect one.
I use a deep conditioner about every two weeks. I’ve tried Shea Moisture’s Deep Conditioning Masque and found it to be just okay. After using it with heat and without, I never noticed an improvement in the condition of my hair. I also used Naturally Silk Elements three step conditioning process, which includes a pre-treatment oil, deep nourishing conditioner, and intense repair serum. My hair felt brittle after using this, so I didn’t give it a second chance.
Interestingly enough, the deep conditioning product that has worked best for me is the one that I tried first, Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula with Vitamin E Deep Conditioning Protein Pack. (I’ve been told that there is also an Olive Oil Formula that is very good, but that is not available in my local stores.) After using it for the recommended 10-to-20 minutes, my hair feels stronger, yet soft. The package weighs 60 grams (2.1oz), which is probably enough for just one application unless you have the teeniest of TWAs, and costs about $1.50. So far, I like this deep conditioner the best. It is working for me, but I am still searching. . .
Any suggestions? Do you have a deep conditioner that works well for you? Please share it with us!
