Conditioners are clearly the most exciting part of a hair routine. They're like eating a brownie after a boring desk lunch. The joy they illicit is primarily due to their ability to elevate hair within minutes, and who doesn't like quick results? This is especially true for Afro hair. I've done my fair share of experimenting with conditioners to find the ones that really make a difference to my natural coils.
