Not to be dramatic, but deep conditioners are the best thing that’ll ever happen to your hair. Unlike your typical conditioner, a deep conditioning treatment is usually a heavier, more intense formula that works overtime to “repair, reduce breakage and split ends and improve the overall health of the hair,” celebrity stylist and “Curl Queen” Nai’Vasha Johnson, whose clients include Yara Shahidi, Janelle Monae, and Serena Williams, tells

Ahead, 15 of the best deep conditioning treatments to bring your hair back to life.
