Coloring, processing, and heat styling can strip your hair of moisture, leaving your curls dry, damaged, and limp. When curly hair is dry and dull, it's usually because your hair's natural oils are having a tough time making it down to your ends. That’s where a deep conditioner comes into play. These hair treatments deeply penetrate curls to lock in moisture, repair damage, and smooth out flyaways back into your curls to help hair look smoother, shinier, and healthier. Ahead, we rounded up the 14 best deep conditioners for curly hair that'll improve the look, feel, and texture of your hair.
