Not all hair conditioners are created equal. In fact, the four hair conditioners picked offer a little something different for aging and thinning hair. These points alone makes them stand-out stars special enough for an HKI shout out. But the one important equalizer amongst all the hair conditioners picked is that they’re extra hydrating. Here are my 4 picks for extra hydrating conditioners for Black hair:
HYDRATING CONDITIONERS FOR AGING HAIR
Did you know that your hair ages just like the rest of you? But don’t give up the good fight. Even though you may not be able to Botox your hair to freeze time in it’s tracks, you can use one of these two anti-aging hair care brands to keep your hair looking younger, longer and without the needle prick. Ouch!
White Sands Orchid Bliss Conditioner ($20.50, whitesandsproducts.com) capitalized on the many benefits anti-aging benefits of the orchid plant – they’re known for their moisturizing properties and they fight the molecules that contribute to aging and tissue damage, also known as free radicals. Besides restoring necessary moisture to your strands, this intoxicating, yet gentle-scented conditioner kills the frizzies and works well with other styling products.
If your hair requires daily washing and is color-treated, then take a close look at ALTERNA Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture Conditioner ($32, sephora.com). Caviar is a lipid-rich formula that’s infused with four registered processes called Seasilk®, Age-Control Complex®, Enzymetherapy® and Color Hold® which help maintain moisture & protect your hair from daily environmental stressors that keep it looking healthy and strong for years and years to come.
HYDRATING CONDITIONERS FOR THIN HAIR
Rich in green keratin, but not green in color, NAAT Brazilian Keratin Intensive Hair Mask ($5.99, walgreens.com) means serious business. If I didn’t know better, I’d think Intensive was a body lotion because after I applied it on my hand, the ash was gone. Talk about multipurpose beauty. Intensive is focused on restoring hair thickness and increasing its strength, softness and shine.
The last thing a woman with fine hair wants is a conditioner that keeps body & movement at bay because the product is so heavy. Don’t sweat the small stuff because Mizani Supreme Oil Satin Crème Moisturizing Mask ($20.99, sears.com) is to the rescue! What makes Satin Creme (SC) ideal for fine-haired mavens (and other hair types) is it’s Silicone-free formula. ‘SC’ should be your go-to product if you’ve got color-treated or chemically-damaged hair because it brings back that softness and manageability we all crave.
