It doesn’t matter if you are natural or relaxed, conditioners especially the good ones are a must have in your product arsenal. Personally if a conditioner does not have slip it goes into what I like to call the product 13 cabinet. That is the cabinet that has all the products with the fancy label and nothing to write home about inside the bottle.
There is an little known way to identify a conditioner with slip, simply look at the ingredients and search for emollients. Examples of emollients are Shea Oil, Jojoba* Esters, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, and even mineral oil*.
To help you along, since we are lovely like that, here are our picks for the best 6 conditioners that have absolutely great slip!
Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner – Tresemme is the old faithful, when all else fails and you want to go back to what your hair loves, most ladies will tell you Tresemme has the prize. Again, the formula is super creamy, and when you add it to your hair you can literally feel the tangles melt away.
Always keep a huge bottle in your bathroom cabinet for those times when you are on a product junkie hiatus because Tresseme will never let you down. Here is a great tip for detangling, always section your hair and don’t be stingy with the conditioner. Add enough to allow you hands to slip through your hair with little resistance with each pass as you detangle.
Trader Joes Nourish Spa Balance Moisturizing Conditioner – This conditioner is up there with the best of them, it is so creamy, so thick, its almost impossible to get the stuff out of the little spout.
