When you try a ton of products and your hair still feels brittle, dry, and frizzy, it’s easy to feel like things will never get better. A salon visit can rejuvenate your hair, but frequent visits can get a bit pricey.
Luckily, some ultra-nourishing deep conditioners and masks can help you bring to life even the driest, most hopeless parts of your hair. Regardless of your hair type or the texture of your strands, there is a deep conditioner to help you out.
Many of us have tried DYI deep conditioning by using a regular conditioner and leaving it on our hair for much longer than usual. We would then warm the conditioned hair up with a fan and keep it under a thick towel for an hour (or longer). While this method indeed brings results, in 2021, deep conditioning your hair doesn’t have to take hours or any particular skill set.
There is a wide range of nourishing, powerful deep conditioners available, and they treat many different hair types and solve various problems. Whether you’re looking for something to smoothen your curls or for a treatment to nourish and rejuvenate your flat strands, there’s a product created specifically for your type of problem.
Each deep conditioner targets specific needs. From reducing breakage to refreshing fried or split ends, you will find something perfect for your hair type.
Here is a list of the most potent deep conditioners in 2021.
Olaplex No.5 Bond Maintenance
One of the most famous lines in hair salons, Olaplex, features an entire DIY at-home set of products that help make your strands stronger. Although hairstylists swear by Olaplex for repairing bleached hair, you don’t have to have bleached strands to enjoy the benefits of this powerful deep conditioner. It’s also excellent for hydrating curls and giving every inch of your hair the much-needed moisture, especially if it’s been dry for a while.
Vitamin B5 + Dead Sea Minerals
The ancient queen Cleopatra is known as one of the most famous beauties our world has ever seen. What did her beauty routine include? Dead Sea salts, and plenty of them. She used salts as a crucial ingredient in her nourishing baths. They enhanced her skin’s glow, radiance and prevented blemishes from popping out.
The specialists at Ayam beauty have decided to put those precious salts in a Vitamin B5 + Dead Sea Minerals deep conditioner to help you bring your dry, damaged hair back to life. All ingredients are 100% natural and the product is free from any harmful components. With the help of Vitamin B, this conditioner helps your strands wake up from a long, dry slumber.
Davines The Renaissance Circle
Platinum blondes love The Renaissance Circle conditioner by Davines. Adding this nourishing product to your routine makes blonde hair regain shine and softness. An essential ingredient of the formula is the babassu butter. It helps regenerate super dry hair and turn it silky and soft without messing with your blonde hue.
Briogeo, Don’t Despair, Repair!
Briogeo-s deep conditioning mask is a big, tall glass of freshwater for wavy or curly hair. It features a unique blend of oils (almond, avocado, rosehip, and argan) to nourish your hair and hydrate your curls. The best way to use it is to massage it in from roots to tips, leave it on for several minutes, and then rinse thoroughly.
Camille Rose Natural Algae Renew
The Blue-Green algae are super-rich in vitamin B. It’s the essential ingredient of this popular deep conditioner because it promotes hair cell regrowth. The rich formula of this product results in thicker hair after every treatment. Moreover, it moisturizes and softens brittle, dry hair, so you can use it whenever you feel your strands need some extra boost.
Kristin Ess Reconstructive Moisture Mask
Having oily hair doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do a deep conditioning treatment. While this mask does a great job on every hair type, it’s perfect for oily hair. It includes an innovative Zip-Up technology that targets vulnerable parts of your hair, reducing oil overproduction and “zipping-up” dry, split ends. The mask also smells lovely.
Ouai Treatment Masque
If you’re dealing with brittle ends but you’re not ready for a haircut yet, the Ouai Treatment Masque will help you keep your hair length. Its formula contains tamarind seed extract and artichoke leaf extract to help hide split ends and lock in moisture in your strands.
SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque
People with curly hair know how much moisture it needs. A daily conditioner is seldom enough to keep your curls bouncy and shiny, and that’s when this ultra-rich conditioner steps in. With argan oil, shea butter, and avocado oil, it turns the driest curl into bouncy, defined, a gorgeous sight for sore eyes.
