I'm looking for a new deep conditioner. I need one that really gives my hair a ton of moisture. Price or brand doesn't matter. Any recommendations? Thanks!:)

    I have fine hair. Not sure of my porosity. I thought it was high because my hair dries super fast but then some people told me that that wasn't accurate and I needed to get it tested...3b/c

    What's the difference between Curl junkie curl rehab and deep fix?
  • rbbrbb Posts: 4,086Registered Users Curl Dabbler
    they are both deep treatments. i find deep fix to be more moisturizing, i think it has more emollients in it, but not sure. curl rehab is lighter weight, so i use it more as a leave in. while i use both as leave ins in dry weather, deep fix seems to work better for my hair for a deep treatment.
    i would read the descriptions on the cj website for a better idea.

    It's not deep unless it contains penetrating ingredients, most commercial products are largely cosmetic/ aesthetic. It's not moisturising unless it contains ingredients that add or increase water (humectants).

    There is a list of proven penetrating ingredients on the Natural Haven blog. Work with your hair properties when choosing ingredients and products.

    CO-wash: Inecto coconut/ Elvive Volume Collagen

    Leave in: Fructis Sleek & Shine (old), Gliss Ultimate Volume, various Elvive
    Styler: Umberto Giannini jelly, Au Naturale styling gelee
    Flour sack towel, pixie diffuse or air dry.

    Would adding coconut oil or another penetrating ingredient to a conditioner make it a deep conditioner?

    I'd like to know the answer to this as well!

    I have to say that I haven't been very impressed with the commercial DT masks that I've tried. I just do an overnight DT with coconut oil weekly or every other week and that's about it. A rare protein treatment happens now and then but I rely on the coconut oil almost exclusively for my DT.
    2b/2c ( weather permitting - 3a), fine texture but lots of it, colored and highlights, BSL.

    DT = Coconut oil (love)

    Wavygirl: IMO yes, tho they likely do not penetrate well on wet hair (oil and water do not mix. As well as the deep conditioning series of articles on the Natural Haven blog, there is a new couple of posts on the subject on Sciencey Hairblog.
