What is a deep conditioner really for?

So I tried one (DevaCurl Heaven in Hair) and it made my hair duller and even fluffier. Now that I resorted to shampooing it out and haven't used it for a week, my hair is back to being nice and shiny. So I'm trying to understand - what is the point of shelling out the $$ for this stuff? What result are people looking for? Perhaps they're meant for people with low porosity? Help! :)

Thank you everyone :) (3A curls, medium texture, normal porosity, uncolored brunette, co-washing for about 2 weeks)

    I know it sounds stupid, but Lorraine recommends following Heaven in Hair with One Condition. I don't know why. I've noticed the same thing with Heaven in Hair, but I've since started following it with One Condition, problem solved. It's strange.
