Silky hair is sometimes difficult to come by – especially when your strands are exposed to environmental nasties (humidity, pollution) and everyday stresses. That’s why deep conditioning every week will truly change your hair game…we’re serious. “Deep conditioning has many benefits,” says Matrix celebrity stylist Nick Stenson, “from protecting color treated hair to re-hydrating damaged hair.” Below, we’ve rounded up the five best deep conditioners for every hair need.
This mask is a life-saver when it comes to combatting frizz due to it’s heavy cream qualities. Apply this to towel-dried hair after your next wash, and condition for about five to 15 minutes. Rinse it out thoroughly, and your hair will be intensely soft and frizz-free.
This Matrix Conditioning Balm works to detangle strands and moisturize hair from roots to ends. Inspired by the aloe plant, this balm also seals down your cuticle, which helps prevent water damage while still keeping the hair moisturized. Stenson also recommends the Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Rehydrate Clay Mask as another alternative. “I'm obsessed with this one right now because it contains Shea butter and Moroccan lava clay, which conditions and moisturizes dry dull hair to seal in nourishment,” he says.
This keratin-infused deep conditioner works to create a protective coating over your hair to combats humidity, frizz and water. Chock full of Sunflower Seed Extract, Aloe Vera Linseed oil and more, this lightweight formula will nourish and detangle hair to its prime.
This repair balm combats split ends, weak, rough, dull and dehydrated hair. Apply this to wet hair, and thoroughly massage the product through your strands. Leave it in for three to five minutes and rinse out for ultimate silkiness.
This conditioner can be applied before or after your next shampoo. Chock full of amino acids, this Kérastase treatment works best to protect hair from over-washing and over-processing. Bonus: It’s super lightweight and won’t weigh your hair down.
