The Best 6 Conditioners For Fabulous Slip!

It doesn’t matter if you are natural or relaxed, conditioners especially the good ones are a must have in your product arsenal. Personally if a conditioner does not have slip it goes into what I like to call the product 13 cabinet. That is the cabinet that has all the products with the fancy label and nothing to write home about inside the bottle.

There is an little known way to identify a conditioner with slip, simply look at the ingredients and search for emollients. Examples of emollients are Shea Oil, Jojoba Esters, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, and even mineral oil.

To help you along, since we are lovely like that, here are our picks for the best 6 conditioners that have absolutely great slip!

Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture ConditionerTresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture ConditionerTresemme is the old faithful, when all else fails and you want to go back to what your hair loves, most ladies will tell you Tresemme has the prize. Again, the formula is super creamy, and when you add it to your hair you can literally feel the tangles melt away.

Always keep a huge bottle in your bathroom cabinet for those times when you are on a product junkie hiatus because Tresseme will never let you down. Here is a great tip for detangling, always section your hair and don’t be stingy with the conditioner. Add enough to allow you hands to slip through your hair with little resistance with each pass as you detangle.

The slip is amazing and the conditioner is also of the highest quality.

Because the ingredients are so amazing it can also double as leave in because it is free of cones, parabens mineral oil just to name a few and it wont leave your hair weighed down.

    • Alexis Daniels

      What does it do for your hair

    • Michelle Nicole Charley

      I have low porosity hair, so the baking soda opens up the cuticle so that the conditioner and oil can penetrate better….. Works AMAZINGLY. You can close the cuticles back with an ACV rinse or cool water, but personally I just choose to do a second conditioning with a higher quality conditioner (to make sure I get out all the baking soda mixture) and then rise, dry and style.
