Hi curlies! I put together a short list of my favorite conditioners for curly hair. All of them are different kinds of conditioners: a “normal” conditioner, a deep conditioner, a leave-in and a detangler. The best thing about my list is you don’t need to chose one of the conditioners!
That’s because each one’s purpose is another, you can use all of them at the same time. Don’t worry you won’t be spending more money on products by getting them all. I’ll tell you why at the end of this post!
The pictured 4 conditioners are my holy grail conditioners, I wouldn’t want to miss any of them! This is how I use each one of these conditioners:
MopTop Daily Conditioner
The MopTop Daily Conditioner is the “normal” conditioner I’m using every time I wash my curls to finish combing them. Whenever I feel like my curls need some extra moisture I don’t completely rinse it. Especially if you have long curly hair I recommend you to leave some conditioner in your curls to prevent them from drying out (especially your ends need the extra moisture).
Curl Junkie Curl Rehab Moisturizing Treatment
Whenever my curls are frizzier than usual I treat them with a deep conditioner, as of right now I always use the Curl Junkie Curl Rehab Moisturizing Treatment. As my curls are quite well moisturized I only apply a deep conditioner about once every two weeks – however, if your curls crave more moisture feel free to deep condition them more often!
Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Smoothing Lotion
The Assurance Smoothing Lotion by Curl Junkie is a very light conditioner, which I don’t use while washing my hair. I only use this conditioner to restyle my curls on second or third days. In order to do so, I mix this light conditioner with water and apply this mixture to my curls to get them frizz-free and well defined.
Kinky Curly Knot Today
The Kinky Curly Knot Today actually isn’t a real conditioner, but I like to mention it in this context as you might want to consider trying this great product to comb your hair. It has really made detangling so much easier (faster and less painful) for me! Moreover it already provides my curls with a certain amount of moisture, which is why I then don’t need to use a lot of the Mop Top Daily Conditioner.
Obviously I’m regularly using all of these conditioners in my washing routine, which is why I love having all of them at home. Don’t worry about the cost of buying so many different products: Using the Kinky Curly Knot Today and using the Assurance Smoothing Lotion on second days allows me to use less of my Daily Conditioner. This is why I’m actually not using any more product than someone who only has one conditioner. Well ok, the deep conditioner is an additional product, but that’s a different kind of product which is absolutely necessary, right?!
