Good Conditioner For Thick Long Dry Hair

by Vanessa
(Tampa, FL)

Q: First of all I want to say this is a wonderful site.


My hair was getting thin with excessive breakage so I took it upon myself to get 4 inches cut off and now it's growing back and very thick.

I usually can use any cheap shampoo like suave and get away with it, but not any more, it's drying it out but it's clean.

I need a good conditioner I don't care how expensive, I just want to keep my hair healthy.

Any suggestions?


A: Hi there. Thank you so much for the kind words.

I'm glad to hear that you've gotten your hair back on track from the breakage.

You're very lucky to have gotten away with using cheap (not in price but in quality) products on your hair as long as you were. That doesn't work for a lot of people including myself.

One thing black hair needs tons of is moisture, and you can vouch for that yourself now.

Look for shampoos and conditioners that are labeled as "ultra moisturizing" or "hydrating".

Some of my favorites are kera care, mizani and elucence. On the budget side Creme of Nature (professional formula) and Le kair cholesterol are supreme winners for me.

Look around online to see if you can get trial size samples of these products before you commit to buying one.

Also. to make any of these conditioners work even better, put a plastic cap over and sit under a bonnet dryer for 20-30 minutes.

Your hair will completely transform.

Happy conditioner hunting and I hope to hear from you again very soon.
