3 Budget Friendly Conditioners for Natural Hair

Is there such a thing as a co-wash-aholic?  If so, that’s me (raises hand).  I love nourishing and conditioning my natural hair, and I am always thrilled when I can find a budget-friendly conditioner that works well for my hair.  I have tried so many different products that it’s not even funny.  While I appreciate the more expensive brands, and I have quite a few of those in my stash, I appreciate the products that are easy on my wallet as well.

The one major thing that I look for when it comes to a conditioner is how well it moisturizes.  That is a top priority for me.  I also like a conditioner that provides a nice slip and does a good job of detangling my hair. These three conditioners do an amazing job, and best of all, they are easy on your budget.



I absolutely love this Aussie Moist 3-Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner.  It has a very nice smell to it and a thick consistency which I love.  I apply it and comb it through my hair when I first get into the shower.  I allow the conditioner to penetrate my hair while I am washing my body.  Afterward, I rinse it and it leaves my hair super soft and manageable. This stuff leaves my hair extremely moisturized. I keep this one in my shower and use it every other week as a quick deep conditioner. Did I mention that I love this conditioner!

I love the smell of coconut and orchid.  And this Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner is infused with coconut milk and orchid, which leaves your hair smelling divine.  I use this as a co-wash. It is actually one of my go-to conditioners for co-washing. This Herbal Essences conditioner has a nice consistency to it and it provides a great slip. It does a great job of detangling the hair.  After use, my hair is always soft, manageable and very moisturized.

I use the Giovanni 50/50 Balanced Conditioner as a co-wash also.  It did a really good job of conditioning my hair.  It has a nice pleasant botanical smell.  It is a tad bit thin in consistency to me. Because my hair is thick, I had to use quite a bit of it.  Giovanni provides a good slip when co-washing your hair.  It did a really good job of moisturizing and left my hair really soft and manageable.

    1. I know that feeling. Once you find something that works well, you tend to stick with it. I’m like that for the most part, however I am still a bit of a product junkie, so I tend to try something new every now and then.

  1. I love new hair care suggestions because I hate wasting money thanks so much for saving me time and money lol! Also thanks so much for the info on Herbal Essence I was a little skeptical of them at the price point.

  2. I love a good co-wash too. lol! I have very long locs, so for me finding an affordable conditioner that does the job is getting harder and harder.

  3. I love co washing and do that most of the time for me and my girls. I loveee herbal essences. I haven’t used them in so long. I use Trader Joe’s conditioner. Very cost friendly and a great quality as well.
