If you have kinky, coil-y or curly hair, you’re always searching for great conditioners for natural hair. There seem to be more and more popping up all the time, which is great! But this also makes it harder to choose. The following are a handful of great conditioners for natural hair to start with as you learn more and more about what your hair needs.
1 Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner
Shea Moisture makes one of the best conditioners for natural hair called the Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner. The raw shea butter in this product is like magic food for naturally curly hair. A bonus is that shea butter is wonderful for your skin, too, so your scalp will thank you almost as much as your hair will. This conditioner also contains Argon Oil for an extra boost of sealed-in moisture.
2 Briogeo Curl Charisma
A friend introduced me to this line of hair products and, I’ve got to say, it’s a good one to try! The ingredients in every Briogeo product are natural and wholesome, and the thick creamy texture of the Curl Charisma conditioner lets you know it’s going to work. No matter what curl type you have, the Briogeo Curl Charisma is designed to nurture and define each curly strand.
3 Aubrey Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner
Looking to nurse dry, breaking strands back to health? Pick up a bottle of the Honeysuckle Rose conditioner by Aubrey. This thick, creamy conditioner works to repair your hair with every use. You can even use it as a deep conditioning treatment by leaving it on and sitting under the dryer with a plastic cap for 5-7 minutes. A major bonus of this conditioner is the smell. The honeysuckle smells so yummy and sweet that you may want to steer clear of beehives right after washing your hair.
4 Carol’s Daughter Monoi Reparing Conditioner
Carol’s Daughter is one of my favorite lines for curly hair. I just tried the Monoi Repairing Conditioner and now I’m hooked! The Monoi products claim to reduce breakage and strengthen hair after the first use. Stronger hair means healthier hair, which leads to faster growth. These are all great perks! And I have one more for you: this conditioner smells fantastic. Since using it I’ve had strangers stop me and tell me my hair smells amazing. Yeah, it’s that good!
5 Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Co-Washing Conditioner
If you’re a co-washing girl, Carol’s Daughter has a great co-washing conditioner in their Hair Milk line of products. Co-washing eliminates shampoo from the wash routine in order to avoid stripping hair of nutrients and amp up moisture. The Hair Milk co-washing conditioner is thick and creamy with great cleansing elements that leave hair refreshed and moisturized.
6 Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner
Three cheers for shea butter! If you haven’t experienced the magic of this ingredient, please try this product! This was the first conditioner with shea butter I tried and from then on I knew my hair would have a life-long love affair with the ingredient. This is a leave in conditioner for those of you with hair that response well to leave ins. Your hair will be softer and easier to manage after using this product.
7 Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Knot out Conditioner
There has been a lot of buzz about Dark and Lovely’s new Au Naturale line. Dark and Lovely is a trusted brand that’s been around for quite some time, and their new Au Naturale line is definitely intriguing. The products claim to combat shrinkage – something us curly girls struggle with daily. The conditioner also has great slip, meaning it helps make detangling much easier and faster. That all sounds good to me!
