Conditioners and Deep Treatments

Vitale | Olive Oil Hair Mayonnaise

Hair Cholesterol of Hair Mayonnaise is a must have deep treatment for dry hair. It’s a hair miracle! On a scale of 1-5, I would give DC a 3.5. I would give it a 3.5 for now because I have yet to find a DC/hair mayo that is any better. I like this brand because it contains olive oil, proteins, nettle, peppermint, tea tree and kukui nut oil, vitamins and more. On the downside, it contains some ingredients that I’m not too fond of which are sodium lauryl sulfate, dimethicone, and parabens. All in all, this is a great hair mayo DC. It softens my hair, makes it more manageable and moisturizes it. It smells great! I have yet to find better.

Shea Moisture | Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque

Shea Moisture | Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque

This hair masque almost feels like a cleanser. It has a light and whipped feel and texture. It smells good and it has all natural ingredients. Water, Shea butter, Argan oil and vegetable glycerin are some of the first few ingredient. I would give this a rating of a 4 because this product does not contain sulfates, mineral oil, parabens, synthetic fragrances nor colors. So, does it work? I can’t really tell. I don’t feel a significant difference in my hair after using this product. However, my hair is moisturized, smells good, and is manageable. Because of the natural ingredients, I will assume that this product does a lot of good, even if I can’t tell. So I will continue to use it until it’s gone.

Organix | Moroccan Argan Oil Intense Moisturizing Treatment

Organix | Moroccan Argan Oil Intense Moisturizing Treatment

This intense moisturizing treatment smells delicious! It makes my hair shiny and less frizzy and clumps my curls so they pop. This conditioner is perfect for a wash and go. The downside: Almost all of these ingredients are chemicals and not beneficial for hair heath. It has silicone and other chemical compounds that I don’t initially recognize. The only two good ingredients that I currently know of are jojoba oil and argan oil. And these two ingredient are not the majority in this container since they are at the end of the ingredients list. For these reasons, this product will be rated a 3. Although I cringe at the chemicals and the cones, I continue to use this product for my wash-and-go because the silicone smoothes down the hair shaft and creates shine. I use this as a regular conditioner after shampoo and only leave it in for 3-5 minutes as recommended. Also, I do not use this as often as I used to since many companies have created or revamped their conditioners–I’ve been trying out many others. But, did I already say how great it smells! It smells delicious; one of my favorite smelling conditioners. This product is so good but oh so bad; either way, I still love it. BTW, The container in the image is my 3rd jar, hehe 🙂

Dr. Miracle's | Damaged Hair Medicated Treatment

Dr. Miracle’s | Damaged Hair Medicated Treatment

This medicated DC is one of my least used conditioners since I’ve been sampling so many. What I love about this conditioner is the “feel it formula.” It tingles and feels minty cool like menthol. This is supposed to wake up the hair follicles and promote blood flow in the scalp. However, I dislike the smell, it can be overbearing and linger after a thorough rinse. This product contains some great ingredients such as menthol, salicylic acid, olive oil, avocado oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba and wheat germ oil. It also contains some not-so-good ingredients like petrolatum mineral oil, parabens, and some chemical compounds. For these reasons, I will rate this product a 2.9. This is my least favorite product and one of the older products in my hair closet since trying other newer products more recently. I don’t want to waste it, so I try to mix it with other conditioners that I’m trying to use up as well.

Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner | Giovanni 2Chic Brazilian Keratin & Argan Oil Ultra-Sleek Conditioner | Redken Smooth Down Butter Treat

Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner | Giovanni 2Chic Brazilian Keratin & Argan Oil Ultra-Sleek Conditioner | Redken Smooth Down Butter Treat

These three conditioners are not very special to me. and I’ve concluded that they are not meant for my thicker hair. These conditioners and some others that I’ve reviewed that did not do much for my hair, may have a very different effect on someone else. With that being said, these are three conditioners that I continue to use in order to get rid of rather than wasting them. Starting with the Herbal Essence Hello Hydrations: I bought this conditioner because I loved the sulfate shampoo of this line. I found that, I did not like this conditioner so much. It did nothing for my hair. The ingredients are mostly alcohols, silicone and some other things that I am not familiar with. One good think it has is coconut, but that is about it. It smells great like the shampoo also, but when it come to benefiting hair health, it lacks. I would rate this a 2. The second conditioner is Brazilian Keratin and Argan oil from Giovanni’s 2Chic line. I do not like the smell of this one so much. It has a fair amount of ingredients and a chunk of them are pretty recognizable and beneficial to the hair. Some are: jojoba oil, macadamia, coconut, glycerin, shea butter, argan, pro-vitamin B-5, and aloe vera leaf juice. Other than the smell, there’s not much wrong with this conditioner in terms of ingredients. However, I personally feel that these great ingredients are diluted and watered down in this product because I do not feel much of any different when using this on my hair. Perhaps because the product is not thick and feels diluted and not moisturizing enough for my thicker hair. Or again, this may be a case where it does work and I just can’t tell; but personally, I don’t feel a difference. For that reason, I will rate this product a 3. Lastly, there is the Redken Smooth Down Butter Treat. I love the sweet subtle smell of this product and the lightly creamy consistency. As far as the ingredients, they are not the most beneficial to my hair. It has parabens, cones, perfumes, and other chemicals. There are only a few ingredients that I recognize as good which are: glycerin, macadamia, and water. This conditioner can be used as a leave-in also, which is what I used it as in combination with water in a spray bottle or other leave-ins. Although the ingredients aren’t my favorite, this product leaves my hair soft and feeling moisturized (perhaps it’s just coated and not really moisturized), either way it feels and smells good. I would rate this product a 3.2.

Garnier Fructis | Triple Nutrition Fortifying Conditioner

Garnier Fructis | Triple Nutrition Fortifying Conditioner

This conditioner is pretty decent for a quick wash or co-wash for a wash-and-go. It smells delicious and contains some good stuff like avocado oil, Shea butter, and olive oil. Unfortunately, these ingredients are not at the top of the list or main ingredients in the bottle. This product also contains cones, fragrances, synthetic colors, and a lot of other chemical compounds. So the amount of good stuff isn’t enough to benefit my hair as much as I’d like. Although, this is not the most beneficial product for my hair, I like this for a wash-and-go or a quick co-wash. I love the smell and it leaves my hair smooth, soft and manageable. I would rate this product a 3.2.
