I’ve been experimenting with deep conditioners and I really like Carols Daughter, Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie. The consistency is very thick, and it really holds onto the hair when you put it on in the shower. End result is much softer, more hydrated hair. Less brittle and dry! One thing I will say about Carols daughter is that some of their products are a little funky smelling, like African incense- but this one is much milder, like a light vanilla extract, and I really feel the difference in the overall health of my hair.
