Deep Conditioners

Hi all,
So I've got 4b hair and loving my hair. I'm very comfortable with my regimen so I decided to change one thing up just because.

 So I bought a different deep conditioner. The usual being ORS Argan oil hair mayonnaise. The new one Dark n Lovely Amla Legend Replenishing Hair Mask. 

The main difference I noticed was that with the Amla DC my hair no longer drips as much once I wash it out. I've used this twice and I basically don't need to worry about dripping hair as I did with the Argan DC.

Is this a good or bad thing though?
 I've only used these two DCs before.

    Other than your hair not dripping as much, did your hair turn out as well after this deep treatment as it did with your usual one?

    ....great. 

    So I with the new DC I have scraggly hair, looks matted and I'm shedding too much than norm. Luckily breakage is at its minimum but the detangling is harder now.... this is saddening.

    @Taiyalin That doesn't sound good at all! There is definitely an ingredient or ingredients that your hair doesn't like. Maybe you can try mixing up your own deep treatment with ingredients you already know are ok for your hair. A favorite conditioner mixed with some oils, honey, etc?

    Now that's a thought.

    I once combined melted shea butter plus eucalyptus and peppermint oil with the original DC I used before this one. Used it once and my hair was highly manageable but stopped since I mostly keep my hair in protective styles and applying shea butter on my scalp feels suffocating.

    If there is a lot of amla in the new DC, that could be the problem. I tried using amla on my hair and it became all matted and tangly. It took a lot of DCing for it to get back to normal.
