Whether you’re trying to nurse your hair back to health or you’re just trying to keep it looking its best, using the right conditioner is absolutely essential. Not only do conditioners replenish and nourish, but they can also prevent damage.

While it’s definitely a good thing that there are so many options out there given all the different hair types, we totally recognize that finding the right conditioner for your hair can feel a bit overwhelming. Lucky for you, we’ve spent years testing tons of conditioners and have come up with six that are ideal for lots of different hair types. Check out the best conditioners below:

The Best Conditioners

Shoppers Choice:

PURA D’OR Healing Aloe Vera Conditioner

Highlights: Formulated to detangle, tame frizz, and restore volume; crafted with safe to use ingredients; protein and nutrient-rich formula

“I’ve used every cleansing conditioner out there and this one is the best!! My hair is so soft and shiny after using this cleaning conditioner but still feels clean. The product is thick and not watered down some like others I’ve tried. Love the pump and big size of the bottle bc I have thick super long hair. The price is unbeatable and the quality even beats much more expensive brands.” – Rachel

Editor’s Picks:

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Conditioner

Highlights: Weightless formula that helps you wash your hair less often; makes hair look healthier instantly; improves appearance of hair over time

“I recently switched to this conditioner and am obsessed with it. Since I have super thick hair, it’s hard to find a conditioner I really like because a lot of them just make my hair greasy. This keeps it really soft without adding grease.”Hannah

Pravana The Perfect Blonde Purple Toning Conditioner

Highlights: Neutralizes unwanted yellow tones and eliminates brassiness; packed with added keratin, wheat and silk amino acids to infuse strength, add shine and moisture; sulfate-free

“Must have for blondes! I use this every once in a while (basically, whenever I remember to, or notice my hair isn’t so bright anymore) and it totally changes my hair. It’s a great conditioner anyway, but the purple tone evens out the brassiness in my balayage. I use it like an in-shower treatment and clip my hair up while it soaks in, and I do the rest of my shower routine, then rinse out and my blonde is nice and fresh!”Morgan

Biolage Colorlast Conditioner For Color-Treated Hair

Highlights: Helps maintain the color depth, tone and shine; softens, detangles and adds shine; paraben-free

“The Matrix Biolage is the best-smelling conditioner of all time. But it’s also the most smoothing for my color-treated hair. The second I start running low, I start to panic so I always keep a back-up bottle in my shower!”Justine

Buy from Amazon >>

Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Conditioner

Highlights: Damage repair in just one use; made with amla oil extract to rebuild strength to intensely repair damage from daily brushing, heat styling, repeated coloring or chemical treatments; under $5

“Since I go through conditioner so quickly, I don’t like to spend a ton of money on it. However, I still need it to do its job. I have been using this one since I have old color I am letting grow out and it has been keeping my hair and ends healthy.”Alisha

DevaCurl One Condition Decadence Conditioner

Highlights: Made with chufa milk and quinoa protein to take hydration to the next level by drenching hair in deep moisture; 100% sulfate-, paraben, silicone, wheat- and cruelty-free; vegan; great for all curl types to fight frizz

“My hair is super curly, super fine and super dry, so I am very particular about what products I use. I actually alternate between a few different conditioners, but this one by DevaCurl is always in the rotation. It’s silicone-free, yet rich and thick so it always leaves my curls soft and hydrated.” – Jeanine
