Deep Conditioners

I am looking for the best deep conditioner for damaged hair and or to get my curls back. Does anyone have any recommendations? Something that will add so much moisture it will cure dry hair in less that 3 months.

    Lustrasilk Mango and Shea Butter DT and New Era Platinum Shea Butter Hair Moisturizer (if you can find it at your local BSS) are both cheap DTS that always help my hair bounce back in terms of moisture and texture.

    Lustrasilk is a good DT. It was my main conditioner for half of this year. I didn't find it that mositurizing, though, it was more strengthening. When I was using it (currently I'm back on [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCurl-One-Condition-p-55.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacurl-one-condition]Devacurl One C[/buylink]) I would add honey to boost moisture.

    You might not be able to "cure" dry hair in 3 months; it might take *a lot* longer to rehydrate your hair. You may well have to cut off some damaged hair that has gotten so dried out it can never feel very smooth or hydrated again.

    You will have to be very attentive and not only DT, but use moisturizing conditioners and leave ins, and find ways of hydrating your hair, and sealing in that moisture, on a daily basis. It's also important to not overuse protein conditioners-this can cause brittle dry hair when used to excess.

    Other products I would recommend for your DTs are Regis Olive Oil Conditioner, [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCurl-One-Condition-p-55.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-devacurl-one-condition]Devacurl One C[/buylink] (has amodimethicone so not for the strict CGs), and Trader Joe's Nourish. Adding honey is a good way to kick a conditioner up a notch and save money on the pricier brands. HTH

    Excellent advice.
