As a curly hair aficionado and with the help of my friend who is a hair scientist with a degree in cosmetic formulation, we’re thrilled to guide you through the intricate formulation and key ingredients of this exceptional product.
The Jessicurl Deep Conditioning Treatment is a versatile moisturizing conditioner, initially designed for weekly use but now widely adopted as a daily conditioner for thick hair and a deep treatment for medium textures. Renowned for its rich, thick consistency, it delivers intense hydration without build-up and is protein-free. Perfect for revitalizing dry curls.
Together, we’ll explore not only the science behind its magic but also the best ways to harness its potential, ensuring maximum benefits for those struggling with dry and damaged hair fibers.
The Power of JessiCurl Deep Conditioning Treatment
Factors like UV radiation, chemical treatments, and rough handling can leave hair brittle, dull, and lifeless, compromising its natural shine and body.
To address this, hair needs an urgent supply of water molecules and fiber-strengthening actives that mend the hair’s internal structure, particularly within its cortex. Furthermore, for daily grooming, hair requires both lubrication and a smooth surface to align its cuticles.
Enter the JessiCurl Deep Conditioning Treatment. Its thick yet smooth consistency ensures easy application to each hair strand. Beyond its primary use, this versatile treatment can also function as both a rinse-off and a leave-in conditioner.

Key (Featured) Ingredients
Natural Emollients: The Power Trio in JessiCurl Deep Conditioning Treatment”
Natural emollients are top-tier solutions for addressing dry, damaged hair and scalp issues. These versatile ingredients provide a plethora of benefits to both hair and scalp.
In the JessiCurl Deep Conditioning Treatment, three primary natural emollients stand out, as evidenced by their prominence in the INCI listing – they’re among the top five ingredients. These are Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, and Cocoa Butter.
Shea Butter is a coveted ingredient in both skin and hair care, renowned for its unique fatty acid profile. It imparts a wonderful feel to both wet and dry hair, acting as an immediate remedy for dryness and adding a radiant sheen to lackluster hair.
Avocado Oil, similarly, combats dryness and boosts hair lubrication. It’s a rich source of natural polyphenols, shielding both scalp and hair from damaging UV rays.
Cocoa Butter, abundant in saturated fatty acids, lends firmness and body to the final product. It creates a gentle, water-resistant barrier on the hair and scalp, ensuring moisture retention.
Together, these three emollients, present in generous amounts in the JessiCurl Deep Conditioning Treatment, account for the product’s exceptional moisturizing prowess.
Understanding Behentrimonium Methosulfate: A Key Haircare Ingredient
Behentrimonium Methosulfate is a cationic agent known for detangling hair fibers, reducing friction during combing, and smoothing the hair’s surface.
Its molecular structure features a positively charged nitrogen center linked to a long fatty acid chain (Behenyl = 22 carbon chain length).
The positive charge is essential for its attachment to the hair’s surface, while the long fatty acid chain imparts softness and smoothness. This ingredient forms an electrostatic bond with the hair, specifically at the negatively charged amino acid sites along the hair shaft.
Its primary role is to enhance the hair’s softness, smoothness, and cuticle alignment, giving hair a silky and sleek texture upon application.
Additionally, it tackles issues like static and fly-aways, often seen with dry and frizzy hair, thereby boosting hair volume, body, and defining curls.
Natural Fiber Moisturizing Active Ingredients
This formulation contains several rich blend of natural extracts, emphasizing the significant amount of active natural molecules incorporated into the product.
Chosen for their benefits to scalp health and hair hydration, the primary extracts include Aloe Vera, Horsetail Extract, Peppermint Leaf Extract, Rosemary, Bay Laurel, Basil Leaf, Nettle Leaf Extract, Burdock Root Extract, and Marshmallow Root Extract.
Aloe Vera stands out as a widely favored ingredient in cosmetics, prized for its high content of natural polysaccharides that deliver exceptional hydration. It imparts water molecules to both the dry scalp surface and hair fibers, promoting cell healing and ensuring a healthy scalp environment.
Similarly, Horsetail, Peppermint, and Rosemary are abundant in polyphenols, acting as antioxidants. These protect the scalp and hair from oxidative damage, ensuring both remain in optimal health.
Essential Oils for Scalp and Hair Health
This formulation includes natural essential oils that not only impart a unique fragrance but also provide therapeutic benefits for the scalp and hair.
Lavender Flower Oil, Sweet Orange Peel Oil, and Grapefruit Peel Oil are natural aromatic blends known for their therapeutic properties. They ensure a gentle and soothing application experience, while the citrus elements deliver a refreshing burst of freshness.

My Experience with Jessicurl’s Deep Conditioning Treatment
After a month of using the JessiCurl Deep Conditioning Treatment, just as I did with their gentle lather shampoo, I’m ready to share my thoughts.
First off, I appreciate the variety of scents available: Citrus Lavender, Island Fantasy, and an unscented version. I opted for Citrus Lavender, which had a pleasantly subtle aroma.
The conditioner’s creamy and rich texture was a delight, leaving my hair feeling incredibly soft and lubricated. I made sure to let it sit on my hair for 5 minutes before detangling, giving the ingredients ample time to work their wonders.
While my high porosity hair typically craves protein, the blend of extracts and other components in this product more than compensated. This deep conditioner has quickly become a favorite, securing its spot in my top 5 deep conditioners. It’s a must-have in my hair care routine!
