I deep condition once a week, and I look for ingredients that actually nourish the hair, not a bunch of cheap fillers that make it feel good for a day. And I'm expecting long last results! Softness, sheen and moisture to last till next wash day.

I like to deep condition once a week. I love deep conditioners that are thick, emollient, and full of nourishing oils/butters so it will leave my hair supple and soft.

I deep condition once a week. I look for a conditioner that will seal in moisture and also add shine. I usually like a thick conditioner but not one that will make my hair feel heavy.

Locs Galore said...

I try to deep condition my hair weekly, if not, then every two weeks. When I look for conditioners, I'm mostly looking for moisturizing conditioners that are thick in content and leave my hair feeling soft.

I deep condition once a week (sometimes twice if the weather is a little harsh). Since going natural I have been sticking to all natural products...so the first things are I look for (starting at the bottom of the list) are parabens, cones, etc. If I don't see any of my personal no no's then I move back to the list and check it out. Things that make me excited on the list are oils that moisturize (grapeseed, mango, avocado, sweet almond, etc) and other ingredients that help retain moisture (honey, agave, etc). I look for my hair to look, feel and be moisturized for the week after I deep condition, if I get these things (along with a great scent) then it is on my repurchase list!

I usually only deep condition my daughters hair once a month but lately it has been twice a month so I am looking for something that will add moisture and leave her hair feeling soft. This looks delish. Thanks for the opportunity! :)

I deep condition once a week, usually on a Friday or Sunday, depending on the hair style I'm seeking. I look at the ingredients of the conditioner before I purchase and I also read reviews about that respecive deep conditioner, just to get a general consenus about the conditioning properties. I love for my deep conditioners to impart softness, moisturize, detangling capabilities and shine from the time it touches my hair; sits on for 30 mins to 2 hours; the time I rinse it out; and there after.

atomskeater said...

I deep condition every one to two weeks, usually waiting until the weekend.

First, in deep conditioners I stay away from parabens. A small amount of cones is okay, but I really look for the first five ingredients to be natural. I try to find out if the conditioner is thick.

As for results, I like a conditioner that goes on with a bit of slip, just for ease of application. I want something that is safe to leave in my hair all day if I choose. As long as it leaves my hair soft and healthy, I am happy! If the dc smells nice, that is an excellent bonus.

hannan said...

I deep condition one to two times a week, depending on what time of the year it is. I absolutely love natural ingredients that can benefit my hair and leave it feeling soft for days. A great scent (yum!), thickness, and high quality ingredients is what a look for. I hope to get lovely slip and a nice soft feeling while I rinse - after gentle heat and a good half hour. While I'm airdrying, I'd like to feel that super soft, spongy feeling afterwards. That would be success!

China Doll said...

I try to deep condition weekly if not every 2. I love all natural deep conditioners that will moisturize and strengthen my hair. I also look for deep conditioners that have not so common ingredients in it.

SuccessfulBeauty said...

I deep condition at least once a week. When purchasing a deep conditioner I look at the ingredients and also brand of product. I expect for my hair to be baby soft and easy to run my fingers through with a nice bounce to it :)

CocoMT2 said...

I deep condition twice a week because that is how often I wash my hair. I look for conditioners with no silicones, nineral oil or any other harsh chemicals. I like heavy butters in my conditioners. I want a deep conditioner that will soften and help me detangle my hair.

TrollopCM said...

I deep condition once a week. I make my own rhassoul clay deep treatment mixed with ayurvedic herbs. It's the only deep treatment that leaves my hair moisturized and feeling healthy.

darqchild72 said...

I try to deep condition once a week. I mix commercial deep conditioners with coconut, sweet almond, olive and castor oils for maximum moisture and softness. I look for deep conditioners that do not contain chemicals and that will moisturize dry and damaged hair.

FabledBeauty said...

I try to listen to my hair as much as possible, if my hair needs a deep condish every 3 or 4 days I do it, if its a week.. then I give her what she needs.. I have pretty hard water so I try not to focus on a time schedule too much not to mention the weather her can get pretty out of control randomly...

When I pick a deep condish, I look for a hair that wont give me just sheen and softness but strength as well.. I dont want my hair mushy or dull...I look for natural as much as I can, but sometimes all natural doesnt give me the right results.. Im still discovering different things and techniques since I finally cut all the permed ends off..and enjoying the journey

I DC once a week after shampooing although I'll add in an extra mid-week DC if I've used henna.
I look for long lasting softness, natural ingredients which don't need to be boosted with oils or anything, no/little protein, decent price and because I often DC overnight a GOOD SCENT that will not make me wake up with a headache.

This brand's Dc looks and sounds yummy! I swear my hair just whispered into my ear that it wants it!

Nappy Tress Love said...

When I deep condition I look for something rich in natural oils and maybe some butters. I want my hair to end up soft and feeling strong all day. I dont want too much protein because it tends to make my hair brittle but I want strength.

Lately I've been using a home made deep conditioner with shea butter, jojoba oil and olive oil and some essential oils, glycerin and water.

LOVE IT!!!

kindred soul said...

My hair demands deep conditioning 2x a month and requires simple effective nourishing ingredients.I tend to look for humectants, butters and oils and lots of moisture and slip. I expect to receive a cottony soft well nourished head that doesnt require additional moisture from leave ins or styling products.

ebonyrose31626 said...

I deep condition once a week and I look for very thick and creamy dc products.I expect my hair to be soft and moisturized after my deep conditioning process.

nappychild said...

I deep condition twice a month, using coconut oil that I warm and mix with honey. I wet my hair with warm water, section it off and saturate my hair in the warm mixture. Then I put a plastic cap on and let it sit for roughly 5-6 hours (I do this on a day when I have nothing else to do hehe)! When I rinse, my hair is divine. It's soft and my curls draw up on themselves in pure bliss. Try it-you'll love it-Guaranteed!

nappychild said...

Oh-I got carried away thinking about deep conditioning whew! I forgot to add that when I do venture out and purchase commercial or store bought conditioners, I look for one that is thick in consistency and one that caters to luscious and deliciously dense nappy hair. My hair needs a conditioner that packs a mighty punch! *No wimpy conditioners for me, please and thank you lol.
