What are the very best conditioners for natural African-American hair?

Question by iNDiGO: What are the very best conditioners for natural African-American hair?
Let’s face it: There are a ton of products marketed toward ethnic hair, many of them easily attainable at your local discount stores. But many of these products are caked full of too-thick, untouchable “greases”, which may not be harmful to the hair itself, but unethical to the skin (where the hair hangs, especially around the face).

So my question is this, what are the absolute “best” deep-treatments and leave-in conditioning agents for African-American hair?

(Opinions from stylists and folks with ethnic hair especially welcomed.)

    Many products for blacks contain ingredients that are bad for the hair such as petroleum and mineral oil. Try organic products, or products that don’t contain those ingredients or don’t have those ingredients at the top of the list. I also use products that are for every hair type because they are less likely to contain petroleum, like Dove, Nexxus, and Nuetregena Tripple Moisture. It really depends on the ingredients in the product rather than whether or not it’s for african american hair. the only time I wouldnt’ buy a product is if I didn’t see a black in its commerical/advertisment or it doesn’t stipulate that it’s for every hair type. I use olive oil as a hot oil treatment and pre-shampoo rinse, and regular dove intense conditoner as a deep conditioner, and organic root stimulator hair mayonnaise as a protein deep conditioner (sporadically). I also have bioInfusion (walgreen’s brand) olive oil moisturizing deep conditioner.
