Every time I go to Target no matter what I am there for I must go the to natural hair care aisle (and makeup aisle too) Its great to see so many new natural hair care lines most of which could only be purchased online. Early on my natural hair journey I tried any and everything. Now that I know what my hair likes; I kind of stick to what works for me. Every now and then I come across something that looks promising. Let me tell you a little about my hair; its thick, kind of coarse, coily, kinky and curly with pretty normal porosity.
If I am going to try a new product it will usually be a deep conditioner or a leave in conditioner. Mielle Organics Babassu Oil Mint Deep Conditioner (why must the names of these products be so long) looked promising; it has pretty good ingredients and a great price point $14.99. I was a little hesitant since its marketed as a protein/moisture replenisher. Most conditioners with protein don’t offer much moisture. My favorite protein conditioner is Curl Junkie Repair Me (strengthening and very moisturizing). Conditioners with protein usually leave my hair dry and in desperate need of moisture. Mielle Organics DC has a minty scent, a smooth not too thick consistency that glided easily over my strands, it offered a lot of slip, since it spread so nicely I didn’t have to use a lot. I have used this DC 3 or 4 times and I have enough for maybe one more application. I apply it to freshly washed hair in sections, I twist each section after applying the DC, put on a conditioning cap, and my Hair Therapy Wrap (microwavable wrap that adds heat to your DC) I leave the DC on for twenty minutes then rinse and style. I really like this DC. It has great slip, left my hair shiny, moisturized, soft and my curls were clumped and popping. I would defeintly repurchase. I love the convenience of picking it up at my local Target. I am intrigued now and want to try more Mielle Organics products. What is your favorite Deep Conditioner?
