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.

    Love your choice, will definitely try them out, I have been using the same deep conditioner for about a year ORS Olive Oil Replenishing pack.I have managed to try the ORS Hairepair conditioner for me falls under the moisturising category.

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

  3. 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.

      Me and my pocket are relieved 🙂 I’ll look out on your blog for the D&L review.
