Even if you have thick, dense hair, your curls might still be fine in texture. Knowing the width of your curl strands can help you find products with the right amount of weight. You’ll need to avoid using heavy products meant for coarser curls, as they can weigh down your fine tendrils. However, you don’t want to not use deep conditioners and moisturizers, as your curls need both to stay healthy. Here are three of the best deep conditioners by Shea Moisture and why they’re great.
Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Masque : While this masque doesn’t have a whole lot of slip, it does work wonders when it comes to detangling snarled curls. While the masque features a whipped like consistency, it’s a heavier texture. However, it doesn’t weigh fine curls down, which is great! You can use it right in the shower after you cleanse and allow it to sit for a few minutes so the steam from the water can help it be absorbed.
Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Masque Not only does this masque have a phenomenal good smell, it’s also got a great light and fluffy texture. This masque is great for the warmer summer months when it’s hot, humid and your curls need a little extra protection to keep them from becoming a giant frizz ball. The imbe oil seals your hair to keep humidity out.
Jamaican Black Castor Oil Treatment Masque This masque works great when applied under heat. Wash your hair and then apply, cover your hair with a cap and sit under heat. If your curls are dry and lifeless, this masque will breathe fresh life into listless hair. While castor oil works wonders, it can be heavy for fine curls, so you may want to dilute it if you use it on your own. However, the masque doesn’t create build up, just enhances curls. This is a great masque to use during more moderate weathers, such as fall or spring.
