A quality deep conditioner can make all the difference for ladies with natural hair. Hitting your strands with a rich dose of moisture once a week or so can help nourish, strengthen and moisturize, repairing any damage from heat styling or the elements. The best deep conditioners for natural hair can also help enhance curls, increase shine and protect hair from future damage, keeping it healthier (and prettier) for longer.

There are a few things to look for in a deep conditioner for natural hair. Since natural hair tends to be coarser and more prone to frizz, you want to keep an eye out for hydrating ingredients that will penetrate your strands without weighing them down. These might include shea butter, coconut oil, raw honey and aloe vera. Some formulas become even more effective when heat is applied, which is perfect for safe heat styling.

In the end, the best deep conditioners for natural hair make your hair the best version of itself it can possibly be -- that being soft, healthy and defined.
