Summer is here ladies & Gentleman!
Welcome the humid air, intense UV rays, and much more.
So, now more than ever we should be deep conditioning our tresses. Skipping out on deep conditioning during this season is a no-no. To make it easier for you we've picked 5 deep conditioners for you to choose from this summer. They are ranked from 1 to 5 with #1 being the top-recommended choice and #5 being the least favorite.
Here they are:
Cantu Deep Treatment Masque // RANK: 5
The Cantu masque is a great pick if you are looking for a very thick deep conditioner for your curls. By looking at the white deep conditioner, you can tell that the consistency of it is “thick”. However, when applied to your tresses it will become pliable so that it's easier to work through. If it still feels thick, then you haven’t thoroughly dampened your hair. It’s favored by naturals with thick to coarse hair than with thin to ﬁne hair because the curls may feel weighed down with product in it. For the ingredients, it contains the fatty alcohols that are needed to penetrate the deepest layer of your hair strands. And as such, it works well for low and high porosity hair. However, compared to other deep conditioners it lacks the "natural ingredients" that we all love to see. Therefore, we ranked it at number 5.
Price: It is the most affordable on our list as it is priced at $6 for 12oz.
Where to purchase: Cantu is a world-known brand hence it can be purchased anywhere at your local beauty supply stores, salons (if they sell products) and even on Amazon (add your blogs amazon link)
