The Best Deep Conditioners For Natural Hair

It’s no lie that when we naturals deep condition our hair, we feel a certain type of way! It’s like God himself blessed our hair and anointed it with his (olive) oil



If your deep conditioner is not giving you this much life, gurl you deserve so much better! That’s why I wrote this post because every fro should be as soft as soft can be. Let’s get a bit technical first


Conditioning vs Deep Conditioning


Conditioners work on the surface of the hair to close the cuticle and puts moisture back  in the hair after shampooing. Conditioners for this are also called rinse out conditioners and usually come with a matching shampoo. It’s left on for 3 to 5 mins then washed out.

Deep conditioners targets specific hair concerns e.g. excessive breaking etc and penetrates deeper into the hair shaft to repair, rebuild and restore. Deep conditioners are also called hair masks, masque, hair treatments etc and are left on longer. Heat will activate the active ingredients and allow it to penetrate quicker.

Technically you can turn your rinse out conditioner to a deep conditioner with added heat but it’s always best to actually get a deep conditioner has it will have more benefits for your hair

How Often Should I Deep Condition?

The answer isn’t set in stone but recommended at least once a week or every wash day for coarser/dryer hair textures. I have 4c natural hair so I deep condition every wash day.

Why Deep Condition

Besides the softness you get, deep conditioners actually target specific hair concerns. They are also packed with nutrients and benefits that regular rinse our conditioners don’t have.

How did it perform?

Very well actually. I really like that it has a pump which makes it so much easier to use. It says to apply directly to your scalp but I applied to my hair as applying co-washes/conditioners to my scalp makes it itch. But it gently cleansed my hair and scalp.

It really does make your hair soft! As soon as I applied it, I could feel my hair softening lol and yes you don’t need a conditioner afterwards, but because I am very extra( and my 4c hair needs every moisture it can get) I did lightly condition afterwards. You will get a bit of slip to detangle with but I found adding some water gave me more slip. It has a yoghurt consistency, not too thick or runny and the smell! It smells really good.

After rinsing
After rinsing, my hair felt really soft. ( yes almost every natural washes their hair in sections lol, dont you hate it when you think you have washed out every bit of conditioner thenn you go to apply your leave ins etc and you realise actually you havent!)


4c shrinkage is real! curl definition or nah?? (probably not!)
4c shrinkage! but that one curl is poppppinggg!


This makes me a big fan of co-washing! This is the 2nd one I have used which I really enjoyed using. I think it’s perfect when you want to cleanse your hair you but you don’t have a lot of product build up. It’s a generous size too, 473ml will last you a while especially if you have shorter/finer hair. It’s definitely worth a try!
