DT recommendations?

Looking for DT condish recommendations, but I have some very stringent requirements. I have only found 2 conditioners that don’t make my hair floof- SS Deeply Decadent and Jessicurl DT. JCDT’s formula changed so it’s too thin for me now. I use these as my leave-ins. All other conditioners make me floof.
My hair really dislikes CJ rehab!!!
My nose hates Aubrey Organics.
My hair hates heavy protein

I am looking for other DT conditioners that are similar to SSDD I can use as a leave in. My hair needs THICK condish- not lotion consistency. I am very porous, and coarse.
I don’t do drugstore brands- might as flush the cash down the toilet for how they don’t work for me!
Any ideas?
med/coarse; porous; 2c & 3c
protein sensitive
too much glycerin and some oils give me stringlets

!!! LOVE SPRITZ AND CONDISH !!!!

co-wash: Fructis Body Boost condish
low-poo: miss my LLL Green Tea, CJDF
condish/leave-in: DMLI, Elucense MB, KCKT, JCWDT, CJCR, KBB Deep Condish, Marie Dean, Shescensit GTH
style: faves: KCCC, DMCG, AOMMJ, CGG, Elucence Foam, FSG
DT: JCWDT, CJCR, SS Deep Condish

    Tried GVP conditioning balm? You can add things to it for an even deeper treatment, such as oils (EVOO is what I use), honey, or a little ACV.

    Works like a dream for me!

    Lo-poo - Renpure Keratin, SMR, Giovanni SaS
    clarifying - mix Johnson's H2T with low poo

    RO - GVPCB, Ion Eff. Care, TN.
    LI - SMR, Cure Care, or RO
    Seal - MO or Jojoba

    Look into Marie Dean stuff. Her products tend to be very moisturizing and thick and not goopy. At least, that's what I found with the red clover honey leave-in.

    I think kathymack has samples of this brand so you can try them out!
    Coarse texture, normal-high porosity, normal elasticity (Komaza Care), very weak waves
    cleanser: Redken Fresh Curls Shampoo, CJ Daily Fix

    rinse out: GVP Conditioning Balm, CJ Beauticurls, CJ Smoothing

    jellies/creams: CR Curl Maker, KCCC
    gels: CJ CQ, CJ Pattern Pusha, BRHG

    She does have samples of MD. I tried the peach honey syrup deep conditioner. Loved it!!
    remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!! :read2:
    My hair:
    2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
    My routine:
    Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
    RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

    Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.

    Darcy's Pumpkin Seed Conditioner is VERY thick. I'd say it's at least as thick as the original JWDT, maybe even thicker. It has some protein but I wouldn't say it has a lot. I use it on occasion as a rinse out and sometimes as a leave-in.
    3a (protein sensitive)
    Fine, normal porosity, normal elasticity

    Cleansers: Mop-C Hydrating Shampoo, JCGLS
    Conditioners: CJCR, TJTTT
    Leave-in: CJCR, CK Satin Roots
    Stylers: UFDCM, CJPP
    Standby items:GVP K-Pak

    Thanks for the recommendations. I have tried many Marie Dean products thanks to Kathymack but I can't stand the smells! I just discovered a DM Hairwhip sample from KM that I had lost in my stash. I tried it and my hair loved it, so I have found one more. But I would take any other recommendations...
