List of a few deep conditioners ( Protein & Moisture)

light proteins can be used weekly
Medium proteins can be used every two weeks.
heavy proteins once a month.

Protein deep conditioners.
  1. Egg protein (controversial) apparently egg protein is too large to penetrate the hairshaft.
  2. Organic root stimulator (ORS) Mayonnaise (medium-heavy)
  3. Organic root stimulator (ORS) replenishing pak (light)
  4. Motions CPR (medium)
  5. Mane and Tail Original Conditioner
  6. Affirm 5 in 1 Reconstructor (mild protein)
  7. LeKair Cholesterol (mild protein)
  8. Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor

  11. Palmers Coconut protein conditioner
  12. Giovanni smooth as silk extreme protein treatment(medium)
  13. Motions moisture silk protein conditioner(Light)
  14. Neutrogena triple moisture deep recpvery mask (light).

Note: A protein treatment leaves your hair hard and should always be followed up or mixed together with a moisturising conditioner to attain a balnace between the two.

  1. Just bumped into your sight.... Love the list highlighting a variety of deep & mild conditioners. Happy to see Le Kair properly mentioned as a mild but effetive protien treatment. I cringe whenever I hear or see women promoting harsh protiens or scary recconstruttors for black hair. With a healthy diet some excersie & the proper intake of vital minerals we all can reach long healthy hair goals, great skin & clear minds. Love the sight thus so far.

    1. hey Anonymous i´m this was informative to you :-) HHJ!

  2. Is Miss Jessie's Rapid Recovery (brown packaging) a moisturizing deep conditioner?

    1. hi sadk, i am so sorry for the late reply :-( i would say that it is a protein treatment because it contains hydrolized wheat protein. have you tried it already? if yes, how was it?

  3. What would you classify africa best hsir mayo, also can u go.into.detail about when to do a protein treatment and what types

    1. hi there, i would classify The africa´s best hair Mayonnaise as a medium to heavy protein treatment. However if you have issues with mineral oil you probably should not use this product because it does have mineral oil listed as the 4th ingredient. protein treatments should be used especially on chemicaly treated( relaxers or dyes)hair or heat damaged hair to restore the protein in them that has been destroyed during these processes.
      mild protein treatments can be used weekly whereas medium to heavy proteins should be used about every two weeks to once a month. however since we all have different hair types it might be a good idea to watch how your hair reacts to the product. it is also very important to always do a moisture treatment either right after a protein treatment or mixed with a protein treatment to maintain a moisture protein balance.
      Natural hair that is not heat damaged usually needs very little proteins to be added to them since the hair is still very healthy.

  4. Is the Queen Helene cholesterol conditioner a protein or moisture based conditioner? I'm so confused on that one. you have it listed twice under both.

    1. Hi there the queen Helen conditioner is a moisturising conditioner, it was a mistake having them on both lists. Thanks for bringing that to my notice.

  5. More girls on hair journeys in Kenya! yay! the concept is so foreign around here, i'm so psyched to find this site! a successful hair journey in Kenya is possible u just have to know where to look for stuff!

    1. it great isn´t it? Happy hair journey to you!

  6. Hi I was wondering what are your thoughts on aphogee protein vs motions CPR protein ? How would you compare and which do you prefer ? Thanks I really love your site keep up the work!!!

  7. goodday if i mixx oils with herbal essence Hello Hydration, can usenit as a moisturizing deep conditioner?

  8. There is no 2 minute aphogee recostructor in Kenya. Where do you buy yours.

  9. Their is no other best remedies for hairs as like herbal products. Use of herbal products are good for natural hairs and also a best hair growth treatment .

  10. Hair mayonnaise??? never heard abt it. where will i get this product to use ?

    1. The ORS hair mayonnaisse can be find in almost all beauty supply stores that deal with africa hair products.

  11. I'm so happy to have found a Kenyan website on hair care. Will be following closely, thanks for the great job!

    1. you are most welcome and keep following. thank you.

  12. where do we put vital olive oil mayonnaise?

    1. that is a protein conditioner.

  13. Where can i get the Lustrasilk mango shea butter cholesterol and Silk Elements Megasilk Moisturizing Treatment in Nairobi? Also the Motions CPR protein reconstructor and Motions Moisture Plus Conditioner? Motions products seem to have disappeared in Nairobi. What's up with that?

    1. Lustra silk mango shea butter is no longer being produced by the manufacturers which is such a pity because it was a really good deep conditioner. unfortunately shops in nairobi can be so unreliable. I guess it is better to just keep trying to check if the products are back in stock. Beauty wholesales and supercosmetics are usually very well stocked. I also discovered that most tuskys epscially the big ones do have a lot of hair products which are quite good. check them out too.

  14. Currently going thru protein overload on my HHJ and its driving me crazy thanks for your wonderful list I'll copy it and bring it with me when I buy a new conditioner saved my hair life!!!!!
