The results are in, I have found my staple deep conditioners for my natural hair

Deep conditioners for natural hair

The trial is over, the results are in and the winners are…. Ok, ok, let me back track before making the big announcemnent.

7 weeks ago, I started my testing of deep conditioners which I though would work on my hair. This was ultimately for pinning down my staple deep conditioners. This is one of my 2016 hair goals: to pin down my staple products. I have tried both moisturising and protein/moisture balanced deep conditioners. Most of the conditioners I had used before while my hair was still relaxed, I needed to see the response of the conditioner to my natural hair.

Moisturising deep conditioners for natural hair

In this category, I really loved using the Dark and Lovely Amla Legend Rejuvenating Ritual Replenishing Hair Mask – this conditioner was awesome on my transitioning hair and it left my natural hair soft and yummy. Another favourite was the Hask Coconut Monoi Oil Nourishing Deep Conditioner, however I found out that this does not have a full-sized version whomp whomp. Buying the sachet is too expensive especially just for one wash – it costs R50.

Balanced deep conditioners for natural hair

In this catergory only the ORS Olive Oil Replenishing Pak made the cut.

These 2 conditioners join my protein conditioner AfroBotanics Repairing & Strengthening Treatment along with Dabur Vatika Hot Oil Intensive Nourishment Treatment as my deep conditioners of choice.

I think I will be able to handle 4 conditioners and will rotate them accordingly. I just hope that they product junkie bug doesn’t bite me anytime soon.

      How has the ORS Hairepair been treating you? I found it a bit too thin for my liking.

    I absolutely love the your balanced conditioners, they are my staples as well. I haven’t tried the dark and lovely cons since they rebranded, I’ll definitely give them a try. Great post.

      Hi Yvonne, I didn’t think I’d like the DL conditioner as much as I did. You should definitely try it out. Thanks for the comment 🙂

    That was quick! You must be relieved to have found staple products… The D&L conditioner is very tempting, I have not used their products in ages, I think I will give this one a try! I love ORS Replenishing Conditioner too, very balanced conditioner.
