Personally I tend look for conditioners with a little protein just so that I never run out. Call me a realist or call me out for having ‘lack of protein’ paranoia but when you have the thinnest strands on the planet you know that even if the wind blows you are bound to lose some protein that might need to replaced.
Now I know that protein patching is not always on every ones agenda when looking for a great conditioner, and I know that having a quality conditioner just geared towards moisture is a must in any balanced regimen.
With that said I would be lying if I said I did not have some really great moisture rich conditioners in my arsenal that are trusted brands for me and for many women on healthy hair journeys.
If you are on a quest for a great conditioner that is mostly free from protein and moisture lovin’, here are 7 moisturizing protein free conditioners you just need to take a look at.
Aubrey Organic Honeysuckle & Rose Conditioner – Here at BHI we can appreciate a product that does double duty, not only is this conditioner protein free, it is a great conditioner for a co wash and a great conditioner for deep conditioning*.
It is often the recommended conditioner for women who have bleached or colored hair because it is so great at hydrating your hair after a chemical process.
Even though they may not mention relaxed hair specifically, the ingredients alone will tell you that if you have a relaxer this is a great conditioner to have in your arsenal, so click the link and add to cart.
Be careful with this one, this thing has so much moisture that daily use might lead to mushy strands that have been over hydrated.
This might sound negative, moisture as we know is great but too much of it can be awful for your hair if you do not know what your are doing. The point is the product does what it is meant to do and that is cure parched thirsty strands.
At a low price point you can grab a couple of these so that you do not run out. Aussie Moist is a must have for any woman with relaxed or natural hair.
Get the Coconut* one, it smells wonderful. So it is not quite four dollars but for the work it does with just one application it is entirely worth the price.
Curl Junkie is a trusted brand and this conditioner has some yummy ingredients that any curl would die for.
