I am a self professed deep conditioner junkie. When I try a new product line, I am mostly likely to purchase the deep conditioner first. Then I decide whether or not to try the rest of the products. Yep, its that serious.

Take A Look
Deep conditioner is what makes my strands most happy. When I want a bomb wash and go, when I want a juicy twist out, or a moist protective style, I turn to deep conditioner. Check out the video below for a look at six of my current favorites priced from low to high:
I am very particular about deep conditioner. In a moisturizing deep conditioner I look for slip, deep moisture that lasts, and good ingredients. There are ingredients that I will not accept in a deep conditioner like mineral oil or petrolatum. They aren’t necessary.
Not required from a good deep conditioner, but nice is lightness and a fair price point. I am willing to pay more for quality ingredients. However, that doesn’t always mean that I shy away from synthetic ingredients. Instead I look for behentrimonium methosulfate, cetearyl alcohol, glycerin, aloe vera, oils, and butters.
I can deal with a silicone, maybe two, but not lots. Without oil and butters, those silicones provide my hair with slip and no long lasting moisture. I could go on forever, but my current six favorite moisturizing deep conditioners are:
*ORS Replenishing Conditioner: This is an old favorite that can be found for as cheap as a couple dollars. It has great slip, lasting moisture and decent ingredients.
*Eden Bodyworks Jojoba Oil Deep Conditioner: This moisturizing deep conditioner is a recent favorite. Though it does not have great slip, it meets all my other criteria. I especially enjoy using this product with heat.
*Jessicurl Deep Treatment: This old favorite is only available for purchase online and in certain natural hair shops. However, its worth the coins. It packs good moisture, slip, and consistency.
*TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask: This was one of my best finds last year. This masque packs a punch of moisture and has great slip. It does contain dimethicone, but that is not a deal breaker for me.
*Camille Rose Naturals Coconut Water Penetrating Treatment: Another fantastic find! This deep conditioner meets all my criteria, and although the price point is high. I think its worth it.
*Curl Junkie Curl Rehab: This product was one of the first deep conditioners I found with good ingredients and serious moisture. Again, its mostly available online and packs a high price. However, it’s definitely worth it.
Of course there are more deep conditioners that I consider worthwhile, and can be found on my list of Best Products for Natural Hair. Plus, I have a few new deep conditioners in my stash to try. Nonetheless, these six will give your hair the moisturizing treat it deserves.
