Redheads want to protect their hair and keep it looking shiny more than the ‘norm’ because the color is incredibly rare and unique. How to be a Redhead has tested many deep conditioners; everything from the most expensive to the cheapest. We’ve picked the top 7 ‘Redhead Friendly’ deep conditioner treatments that are the absolute best for keeping gorgeous red hair looking awesome!
Looking for a deep conditioner that won’t break the bank? Try L’Oreal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner ($5) tor repair damaged, dull and frizzy red. Apply to wet hair from lengths to tips after shampooing. Leave on for only 1 minute and rinse thoroughly.
2. For Color-Treated Hair
Schwarzkopf Bonacure Color Freeze Treatment ($19) is a great option for ‘by choice’ redheads because it is specially designed for color-treated hair. This product nourishes without weighing down the hair because of a liquid silk extract.
How to use it: Use the Schwarzkopf Color Freeze Treatment once or twice a week to provide an extra care boost for your red hair.
3. Made with Keratin
We’ve tried so many drugstore conditioners and all of them left our hair feeling greasy- that is until we tried It’s A 10 Miracle Deep Conditioner Plus Keratin ($17). Helps prevent split ends & sun damage. Smooth section by section. Leave on for 2-5 minutes. Comb and rinse thoroughly.
4. Captivating Smell
Aussie’s Deep Conditioner ($15 for a pack of 3) is infused with avocado & Australian jojoba oil to condition and add moisture to your red hair. Leave it in for at least 3 minutes as you enjoy the captivating natural fragrance on your red locks.
5. For Over-Processed Hair
Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner($15) is a great option if your red hair is looking a little dull and fragile from constantly using heat styling tools. This convenient, one-minute moisture conditioner is salon-approved and clinically proven to help even severely dry, over-processed hair feel softer and smoother.
6. For Frizzy Hair
Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil ($8) is a reparative deep treatment conditioner that softens and detangles hair while controlling frizz. Formulated with Jamaican Black Castor Oil and certified organic Shea Butter to provide deep conditioning and nourishing moisture.
7. For Curly Hair
We love the JessiCurl line –– even if you do not have curly hair! The conditioning treatments are seriously amazing, especially the JessiCurl Too Shea! Extra Moisturizing Conditioner ($17). This one has shea butter jojoba oil, avocado oil and tons of lovely herbs and spices that are all great for hair and scalp. Together they combine to make a thick, moisturizing conditioner that isn’t too heavy and not at all greasy. It makes your curls so soft you’ll have a hard time keeping your hands out of them.
We’re also fans of the JessiCurl Spiralicious Styling Gel. See our tutorial below:
