What is the HEAVIEST (most moisturising) conditioner you've ever used?

I've realised that despite being quite fine, my hair really likes heavy conditioners. They give me shiny, bouncy, relatively frizz-free curls. I can use AOHR daily and as a leave-in as well without any problems. The thing is, I can never quite find a conditioner heavy enough to be a true DT for me. I seem incapable of getting over-conditioned. :dontknow:

So here's my question - what's the heaviest (most moisturising) conditioner you've ever used?

For me, I think AOHR is the heaviest I've used, though I rarely use it as a DT.
3b/c. Fine, med-high porosity, normal elasticity. Hair loves oils in summer, protein in winter. Constantly battling the hard water monster.

    OC (DevaCurl.. not care) is my HG and it fulfills everything. Cowash, LI/styler (very small amt), DT (just did that with it yesterday with a little coconut milk).

    I have very thick hair that's coarse and its like taking a moisture bath. I love it!

    I think I'm in a similar position -- nothing really heavy enough. I've been using AOHR mixed with about 1/4c. olive oil and 1-2TB coconut oil as a DT. I pack it on to the extent that it's more like a mask. I think I could use most other peoples' DTs for spritz and condish :tongue:

    YES. What I don't get is that instead of weighing my very (very) fine hair down, these heavy conditioners just make it happier. That goes against just about everything I know about hair - what gives? (The only thing that seems to weigh it down is too much extra oil).

    Double YES! I get my biggest, awesomest hair as a result of super heavy condishes. And every time I have ever tried to use a light / volumizing condish, I wind up stringy. :dontknow: I'm-a so confused!

    As an experiment this morning, I used my CO-wash White Rain Citrus condish as a leave in and I have the saddest, hangiest curls. Yesterday I used olive oil and my hair was enormous and bouncy.

    I've done the same thing before with the same results. I can only get away with light conditioners if they're glycerin or honey heavy and it's really humid out.

    Actually - this sounds crazy - but I find that going from lightest to heaviest product actually works best. Like, use Suave to co-wash, a light conditoner to rinse-out, and then use a super-heavy leave in and use my stylers from light to heavy as well and that'll give me massively awesome curls. Do it the other way around (heavy to light, aside from co-wash), and they'll be weird. Go figure. :scratch:

    I had a lot of difficulty finding conditioners that I feel are moisturizing enough for my fine hair, too. I always thought if was because I'm low porosity.

    I agree, the AO conditioners are pretty heavy. Others that I'd put in that range are: CJ jar conditioners, Komaza Califia Conditioner, Spiral Solutions Caitlin's Conditioner, Jasmine's Shea Butter Conditioner and Shescentit Green Tea & Hibiscus.

    As a conditioner and a leave in I use EO Rose Chamomile. My favorite DT is [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Mop-Top-Deep-Conditioner-p-719.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=moptop-deep-conditioner]Mop Top Deep Conditioner[/buylink]. It's amazing. I'd leave it in too, but it has mint or peppermint and while it gives a nice tingle, you gotta wash it out.

    Most moisturizing to me are the Komaza Califia Conditioners, the BellaCurl Conditioner, DT, and Leave In and the Spiral Solution DT and Caitlin's Condish.

    We also find the Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition to have a good amount of moisture and the Mop C Hydrating Condish is also heavier and more moisturizing.

    Good, I thought I was the weird one around here. I got CJ Daily Fix recently, and read a lot of posters saying they can only use it once a week or so because it leaves their hair over-conditoned... I think I could use that stuff every day and never be over conditioned.

    I just bought AOHR recently and, as a conditioner, it didn't feel heavy at all to me. Just like a regular conditioner. Not overly-conditioning to my hair at all...

    Now, being over-proteined? Yes. I can be that. I found that out after using a conditioner that had protein in it and found my hair felt very dry and brittle. Then I switched to the AOHR, which has no protein, and my hair feels muuuuch better... :blob5:
  • oddityofwingsoddityofwings Posts: 1,261Registered Users
    Ooh, all sorts of new conditioners to try! You people are such PJ enablers. :p I've recently ordered the CJ Deep Fix; we'll see how that one goes first.

    Now, being over-proteined? Yes. I can be that. I found that out after using a conditioner that had protein in it and found my hair felt very dry and brittle. Then I switched to the AOHR, which has no protein, and my hair feels muuuuch better... :blob5:

    Funny - in addition to my hair's inability to get over-conditioned, I've never noticed any tendency towards over-proteining, either. Apparently my head is insatiable.

    oddityofwings, like you I can never seem to over-condition or over-protein my hair. It drinks up everything. None of the conditioners most people find heavy seem heavy to me at all. My hair is very fine and is porous.

    I just ordered Spiral Solutions Caitlin's Conditioner because it seems to be heavier than Deeply Decadent based on the ingredients. My order should be here before the end of the week (which also includes Deeply Decadent), so I will let you know! :)

    I like Burt's Bees Avocado Butter. I actually slather it on my hair in the morning and wash it out at night. Or, I'll make my own deep condish mixing coconut and jojoba oils and also leave it on all day before washing it out.

    For leave-ins I'll use either [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Too-Shea-Extra-Moisturizing-Conditioner-p-105.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-too-shea-extra-moisturizing-conditioner]Jessicurl Too Shea[/buylink]! or Dr. Bronner's Lavender Leave-In. Most curlies say these are too heavy, but my thick 3C-4A curlinkies drink it up and are left shiny and bouncy! :blob7:

    I don't know if this is gonna help --

    But -- The CJ H&B Deep Fix isn't too heavy for my fine easily weighed down hair. Its a nice moisture boost when I need it. So I don't know if it will be be enough for your hair. It worked wonders and didn't weigh my hair down, so at least give it a try if that's what you ordered lol. For example -- since I'm sorta familiar with Peda's hair likes, I wouldn't recommend it to her. I would recommend the Darcy's, Jasmine's, and the SS DT.

    Shescentit Green Tea wasn't too heavy for my hair, but the Jasmine's was. The Darcy's Pumpkin was crazy too much moisture.

    I really wish that I could use the Spiral Solutions DT, because that was serious moisture -- and it made my hair super shiny and glossy. Too much moisture for me though.

    I guess I'm adding in what I thought DIDn't weight me down, so you might compile a double list? Does that make sense? I know what I think isn't the end all -- but perhaps it can contribute to the data we are amassing lol.

    And if Afrosheenqueen and CoilyOne both recommended Blended Beauty Herbal Reconstructor then I'd go snatch that up lol. Or the Mop Top since both SBB and Afrosheen recommended that too. Those ladies know their stuff!

    Also -- Alexjoujou wrote this freaking fantastic article on her blog. Her and her daughter have hair at the opposite ends of the spectrum. So she has personal experience with a TON of items and is fantastic at comparing them. Her daughters hair has insatiable thirst and hers is more like mine. Though hers is harder to weigh down. Anyway -- I think her rating system is pretty darn good.

    O dear, I may have to make another shopping trip online... must... buy... super-moisturising... conditioners!

    Actually, goobernut, I have a weighing-down problem sometimes as well. It rarely kicks in unless there's a LOT of oil in something (my first experience with AOCW was not a good one), but it does happen, so I'm careful. I have extremely dry fine hair - I don't know what's keeping it dry (it's actually gotten worse since I got home and started using soft water, whodathunkit?!), but it's super dry and nothing seems to be enough. It does seem, perhaps, really picky about what it allows to moisturise it, though, and it seems to do best in really humid environments. Glycerin and aloe seem to be my best friends in the summer. Unfortunately, that creates a problem in the winter: low dews+humectants+porous, dry hair = straw. Thus, my search for an extreeemely moisturising conditioner.

    Many of these things sound like my hair. I'm still learning, but I i use a rinse out and leave in that are heavy with oils, my hair gets....a bit oily?? it isn't really weighed down. I don't know the right word. Oily(ish) but NOT moisturized. My hair is also extremely fine. I think my hair prefers hard water too. My hair did great last summer with honey and humidity (not super humid in my area). Sounds familiar.

    I'll let you know how the Caitlin's Conditioner is as soon as it gets here. It should be here in the next day or two. The Deeply Decadent was nice, but didn't seem as moisturizing to me as it did to everyone else. But nothing ever does.

It rarely kicks in unless there's a LOT of oil in something (my first experience with AOCW was not a good one), but it does happen, so I'm careful. I have extremely dry fine hair - I don't know what's keeping it dry (it's actually gotten worse since I got home and started using soft water, whodathunkit?!), but it's super dry and nothing seems to be enough. It does seem, perhaps, really picky about what it allows to moisturise it, though, and it seems to do best in really humid environments. Glycerin and aloe seem to be my best friends in the summer. Unfortunately, that creates a problem in the winter: low dews+humectants+porous, dry hair = straw. Thus, my search for an extreeemely moisturising conditioner.
    Many of these things sound like my hair. I'm still learning, but I i use a rinse out and leave in that are heavy with oils, my hair gets....a bit oily?? it isn't really weighed down. I don't know the right word. Oily(ish) but NOT moisturized. My hair is also extremely fine. I think my hair prefers hard water too. My hair did great last summer with honey and humidity (not super humid in my area). Sounds familiar.

    I am so glad I'm not the only one with bizarrely dry, porous hair. It was doing a bit better for a while there, a month or two ago, but has since gone even stranger. It's like no matter what I do to it, it won't retain moisture. :-( At least it's got some stretch now, which is something. Used to snap as soon as I looked at it.

    Oddly, nothing I do changes curl pattern, or even definition. It always looks like telephone cords all over my head, even if it's super dry. Weird.
    3b/c. Fine, med-high porosity, normal elasticity. Hair loves oils in summer, protein in winter. Constantly battling the hard water monster.
