Does anyone have a favourite solid conditioner? The LUSH ones don't work too well on my usually greasy, bleach damaged hair, they're okay for one or two washes but then they leave my hair looking dry and brittle even if I also use my favourite leave in conditioner.

I found one from this company that sounds promising, avocado oil's probably good for stopping hair looking dry and brittle right? one http://www.squidbalm.com/products.html (sorry I can't make it link to the actual product)

It also can't have tea tree, I'm allergic.

i am not a fan of solid conditioner - my hair is to coarse for them. i did find some on etsy (after seeing vegan items listed with silk and goat milk - ugh) this one looks decent though:

Thanks MMC, that one does look good. I'm no fan of sold conditioner either but travel and liquid allowances mean that I'm desperately trying to find one I can get on with!

could you do with leave in conditioner? is coconut oil considered a liquid? they sell lil pouches of it and it tames my beast-hair!

This hair moisturizer from Lush isn't a solid but you only use a teeny tiny bit so a little goes a long way and it comes in 3.5 ounces. I use it as a leave in and I think it's pretty amazing on destroyed hair.

You could travel with a small bottle of argon or morrocan oil, a small bottle will last for ages and put your hair in better condition than any conditioner.

My hair is only okay (and not shiny, shiny perfect, just okay. It still kinda looks like straw!) with both conditioner and leave in conditioner. It's super damaged because I've been bleaching it myself for over 15 years. I'm basically trying to find solid conditioner because I need to fit my leave in conditioner (Giovanni. Love it!) in my liquid bag.

I'll give argon oil a try though fezza, I super hate the feeling of oil touching me but it's probably worth a go.

mmc coconut oil counts as a paste and would have to go in the liquid bag.

LS I'll pop into LUSH and see if I can get a sample of that.

It's a very light oil & soaks into your hair really quickly, I recommend buying a dearish one, I got a cheap one and it wasn't as good.
