Need recommendation for deep conditioner

lastevnslastevns Posts: 3Registered Users Curl Neophyte
I have natural, light blonde hair (no coloring, bleaching, dyes) with the back being 3b and the front bring 2c. In both areas, I have low porosity, medium density and fine texture. The length of my curls (not my scalp) are in desperate need of a deep conditioner. But I'd like to have some bounce and volume following the treatment, so I am looking for something that will deep condition without completely weighing down my hair.

Over on Amazon all the suggestions for a deep conditioner for fine curly hair comes up with products heavy in Argan and other oils. I'm not sure these are the way to go. Any suggestions from those with similar hair types?

    My hair isn't exactly like yours but it is similar. I make my own deep conditioner using any of my favorite conditioners and oils (I like jojoba and argan oil). I heat them up in the micro, put on rinsed hair, put on a plastic cap and a turban towel, let it sit for an hour, then rinse well. I then do a vinegar rinse followed by a honey rinse which both give me some bounce.

    Can you tell us more about the honey rinse?  How do you make it?  What does it do for your hair?

    ^ I stir about a tablespoon of honey into a mug of warm water and mix it well, then I just pour it over my hair and scrunch. Then I finish the rest of my usual routine. For me it seems to add bounce and life back to my hair.

    The mixed chicks deep conditioner doesn’t have any oil in the top ingredients. There is safflower oil really far down the list.
