Ah, deep conditioner. My love for you goes far back into my childhood. When my mom would buy me those V05 hot oil treatments that you put into a cup of hot water and they did…well, hardly anything. But still. It’s the thought that counts, V05.
I’m not one to spend a ton of money on haircare. I like what I like and have my go-to products and that’s that. So here are my thoughts on a few deep conditioners I think are a good bang for your buck.
Also, quick shout out to the new L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil Shampoo (you can read my full review here). If you haven’t tried it and your hair is on the dry side, you need to. It smells great too, which is probably my biggest deciding factor when it comes to hair stuff.
Right, onto deep conditioners:
Let’s go in order from least favorite to BEST EVER IN THE WHOLE WORLD shall we?
Salon Selectives: I included this because my mom is loves it. It’s actually from Dollar Tree, which is always nice. It’s really good for fine hair, or thinner hair. It’s not too heavy or thick, but it still makes hair nice and soft when you’re done. The smell doesn’t really remind me of anything…Maybe a little bit like Mane and Tail, but it’s not a selling point by any means. It’s a buck though, so you can’t really go wrong.
L’Oreal Damage Erasing Balm: This is what I’ll buy if my yet to be announced favorite isn’t in stock. It’s decent. It makes your hair soft and moisturized.It’s a really thick, goopy consistency and if you leave it on for about five minutes in the shower, you’ll definitely get good results.
Palmer’s Protein Coconut Deep Conditioner (Not pictured…Sorry, I used it and forgot): These little suckers. They’re so good. They smell like coconut. Pretty easy to find. I have really long hair and can get two uses out of each little packet. They’re almost always on sale at Target. You can find them in the ethnic hair section. Super moisturizing and good to throw in your suitcase when you travel.
And now…my all time favorite…
Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Mask: I know I can’t be the only one obsessed with this because every time I go to Target to pick one up, they’re ALWAYS sold out. I need to start buying a few at a time. If you have long hair, this won’t last you a super long time, but it’s definitely worth it. I like the whole Triple Moisture line, but this is by far the stand out product. Leave it on for a few minutes and I promise you’ll have the smoothest softest hair ever.
