Any curly girl can spend hours dissecting her hair care routine, but we all know the most important product in anyone’s arsenal is conditioner.

If your old conditioner isn’t cutting it anymore and you’re looking for an upgrade, we’ve rounded up the best conditioners for curly hair from the L’Oréal portfolio of brands—well, 10 of them.
