If you confront with dull, frizzy hair, then it is very important to pick the best conditioners for dry hair. Hair generally gets frizzy because it lacks moisture, so, in order to receive that moisture, it need to be properly hydrated, and the best thing you can do in this case is choosing an extra nutritive conditioner.
I’ve been trying many conditioning products, some based on essential oils, others based on plant extracts, and here I have tried to select the ones that had the best effect and the ones that have the best quality-price ratio. Here is my top 11 (descending, of course, I can’t tell you my favorite from the first 😀 )
11. CONDITIONER LUXURIOUS MOISTURE from TRESemme
The TRESemme Luxurious Moisture Conditioner is an excellent detangler, as it offers the deep moisture your dry hair needs. Thought you may not expect it, its price is not very high, actually it’s one of the best, considering the price/quantity ratio. A great advantage is that it also works well on fine hair.
However, it does what it promises, but not more (moisture talking), so it’s a very good product if you have pretty dry hair, but don’t expect it to do miracles for a very dry hair.
10. HELLO HYDRATION 2-IN-1- MOISTURIZING HAIR SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER from Herbal Essences
Probably one of the most famos and most used dry hair product, Hello Hydration 2-in-1 Moisturizing Hair Shampoo & Conditioner is the perfect product if you don’t have too much time for your hair. It has a great, coconut fragrance and its action is very gentle and does not produce dandruff (at least in my case).
The price is also very good, and the quantity sufficient for a pretty long time (of course it depends). However, it is an average product that may not make miracles if your hair is very dry and coarse.
9. REDKEN ALL SOFT HEAVY CREAM SUPER TREATMENT from Cydraend
This All Soft Heavy Cream Super Treatment shows very good results because of its double action: first, it tames frizzy, dry hair and then it also repairs damaged hair ends, making them seem more hydrated and, therefore, healthier.
From this reason, it could easily replace a professional conditioner (at least I believe so). Believe it or not, the price is not very high, actually it’s quite affordable to anyone.
8. RAW SHEA BUTTER RESTORATIVE CONDITIONER from Shea Moisture
This great shea butter based on conditioner can be used as both normal and leave-in, thus being a perfect 2 in 1 hair conditioner. It has a very light smell, ideal for persons who don’t tolerate strong fragrances.
It’s an excellent anti-frizzing agent, and also perfect for curly hair, as it maintains curls deeply hydrated for a long period. If you live in a humid area, then this conditioner is definitely a must-have!
7. K-PAK COLOR THERAPY CONDITIONER from Joico
Joico’s K-pak Conditioner smooths frizzy hair very well after the first wash. A big advantage is that it works great on bleached hair, offering the moisture needed. This product really tames your hair, even if not used at every wash, so it maintains its effect on a longer period, which is a big plus.
The scent is also very nice, and the quantity sufficient for a long period (again, this was in my case), and the price is quite good, comparing it to the quantity of the product.
6. COMMUNITY COMMERCE HYDRATION INTENSIVE CONDITIONER from Shea Moisture
Shea Moisture’s Community Commerce Hydration Intensive Conditioner was specially designed for black women, whose hair is usually prone to dryness, but it is still very useful for white women too.
As you probably noticed from its name, it promises deep hydration and it makes hair really really soft, extremely easy to brush. I’ve noticed that there are less hairs on my brush, so this is a big plus for this product. It’s also paraben-free, made exclusively of organic ingredients.
The price is not the smallest, that’s true, but I believe it’s really worth it.
5. SUPER-CHARGED MOISTURIZER from Paul Mitchell
Paul Mitchell’s Super Charged Moisturizer is, just like you noticed from its name, designed to offer a deep hydration, so it’s perfect for very dry hair. What I really love about it is that it doesn’t weight down your hair, like many moisturizing products do. Therefore, it is perfect for quotidian use, especially because of its great smell.
This conditioner’s action is visible when you have to brush your hair as it immediately eliminates tangles, so hair gets very easy to brush. You can see the difference after only one use!
4. ARGAN OIL CONDITIONER from Maple Holistics
This conditioner is sulfate free, which is very important because sulfates are usually responsible for that frizzy, untamed hair we get sometimes. It contains many oils, some of which I frequently use in homemade masks, so it made me really trust its nutritive action.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t very impressed by the smell, which is quite…absent. Maple Holistics Argan Oil Conditioner deeply hydrates the hair, so you don’t have to worry about frizzy hair in the next days.
A great thing about it is that you don’t have to apply very much, so one bottle could last a long period. The price/quantity ratio is also pretty good.
3. REPAIR CONDITIONER from Tru Moroccan
An Argan Oil based, Tru Moroccan Repair Conditioner has the same (or even a better) nourishing effect as all the products containing this oil. A great thing about it is that it definitely prevents hair from becoming frizzy.
This conditioner also has an amazing smell, somewhere between citrus and herbs, fresh and light. Another advantage of using it is that you can also use it as a leave-in (apply a smaller quantity, obviously 🙂 ), in order to maintain your hair perfectly hydrated. It has natural ingredients, including Jojoba and the already mentioned Argan Oil, ideal for extreme hydration.
The price is not very high, quite affordable I would say, and it’s definitely worth every penny!
2. KERATASE NUTRITIVE FONDANT NUTRI-THERMIQUE THERMO-REACTIVE INTENSIVE NUTRITION CONDITIONER from L’Oreal Paris
This extremely long named conditioner works miraculously on hair that is extremely dry, damaged or fragile.
A big advantage is that it also offers thermic protection, so you don’t have to use another product if you want to style your hair. In this way, it allows you to maintain your hair healthy while using styling tools. Surprisingly or not, although it works amazing on dry hair, it isn’t so effective for other types of hair, that don’t need extreme hydration.
The biggest downside is that it is probably a bit expensive, so you have to spend a few extra money.

1.EXTREME DRY HAIR CONDITIONER from JustNatural
Here we are at my favorite conditioner for dry hair! This is the product that, so far, has made the best impression on me, thanks to its amazing ingredients and miraculous action over my badly dehydrated hair.
This amazing conditioner from JustNatural is specially designed for very dry, damaged hair.
Containing Macademia Nut oils and Buritit fruit extracts, it promises to tame rough, course hair and to restore its vitality and health. The good part is that it actually does! Not to forget the fact that it also smells amazing.
Although the price isn’t quite the smallest, the quantity is high enough for even 3 months, I would say, so for me it was a very good investment.
Another thing worth saying is not only that it contains exclusively natural ingredients, but it also doesn’t contain any dose of alcohol, which is a very rare thing in nowadays products.
Have you tried any of these conditioners? What do you think about the ones you have tried? What other dry hair conditioner would you recommend? 🙂
