Hair Conditioner Picks

From the archives. Original Post May of 2014. Refreshed and rewritten in June 2018
It's almost Summer and that means it is the season of wet'n go hair. So what are the best products for curly, natural hair that has never been chemically straightened that can also be described as coarse, dry, frizzy, and fragile hair. This is my hair type currently. It's a blend of the blood line of part Irish, Cherokee Indian, Blackfoot Indian and a whole lot of African American. It has a tight and defined spiral pattern commonly found in 3b hair and 4a hair. 3b has a spiral curl and 4a has a coil pattern. You can say, I have a spiral/coil pattern that is gorgeous when the right products are applied. For those who have similar hair, here are my 2 top picks for leave-in conditioners that I am currently obsessed with.

Obsession 1 Regis Design Line Ultimate Radiance Leave-in Conditioner $11

It is one of the best conditioners that I have had in a long time. I found this product while I was working at Regis Salon. One bottle will seriously last you months if you use the proper amount of conditioner. Meaning a few pumps to the entire hair is enough. More than that will cause the hair to feel grubby and very thick due to product overload. The key ingredient is keratin protein.
This is also a go to product for chemically straightened or naturally curly hair that is thirsty and color treated hair.

Obsession 2 MOA Melaleuca Omega-3 Argan Leave-in Conditioner $20

Out shopping and BAM! This little bottle of goodness was spotted in the speciality hair aisle at T.J. Maxx. It is a very light weight conditioner which leaves me guessing if I should even use it as a leave-in conditioner. Occasionally I find myself using it more as a cream moisturizer to apply with a gel when I do a wet'n go style. It leaves the hair a little hydrated with natural yet enhanced shine.

Application Method

  1. Wash and condition hair with a moisturizing shampoo like Redken All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner.
  2. Use the recommended amount of shampoo to cleanse but apply 2x times the amount of conditioner to evenly coat and saturate hair.
  3. Comb conditioning through the hair with a wide tooth comb with. Apply a plastic shower cap for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  4. Rinse hair thoroughly.
  5. Use a wide teeth comb to divide hair into 4 even quadrants.
  6. Spritz entire hair with 4 even pumps of Regis Design Line Ultimate Radiance or 6 even pumps of MOA Melaleuca Omega-3 Argon Leave-In Conditioner to the 4 quadrants of the hair.
  7. Comb through and proceed with normal style regimen.
Now as a professional cosmetologist I like to try some of everything but it depends on the budget. "Quality over quantity. Fuck it. I'll try both."
