Product Review: Shea Moisture

Hi Curlies,

I am currently using the Shea Moisture line of natural hair products.  First I must say this is the only line where I am pleased with more than one product in the line.  Also I am impressed with amount of natural ingredients in their products and are actually in the top 5 of the ingredient list.  

In this review I will go through the products in the order that I use them.  I will also list the first 4 ingredients because ingredients are listed in order of volume.  Meaning if water is the first ingredient then product has more water than any other ingredient.  

Deep Treatment Masque

First 5 Ingredients - Deionized water, shea butter, argan oil, vegetable glycerin

How I use it - Apply to damp hair in four sections as a pre-poo treatment.  Allow penetrate for 15 - 30 minutes then de-tangle.

Results - Soft, easy to de-tangle hair.  Very moisturizing.  I tried using it after I washed my hair and I did not get the same results as when I use it a pre-poo treatment.

Moisture Retention Shampoo
 First 5 IngredientsDeionized water, sugar beets, shea butter, aloe vera juice

How I use it - Apply to wet hair in shower and work mainly at my roots and smooth down the remainder of my hair.  Rinse.

Results - Squeaky clean hair.  A little bit dry.

Restorative Conditioner

How I use it - Apply to wet hair in shower in 4 sections.  Let it sit during my shower. Sometimes I rinse; however most times I leave it in.

Results - Soft, moisturized hair with a light airy scent.

Curl Enhancing Smoothie

First 5 Ingredients - Deionized water, shea butter, coconut oil, macadamia seed oil

How I use it - Apply generous amount to damp hair in 4 sections.  Allow hair to air dry or diffuse.  
For a twist out, I put my hair in 6 - 7 twists and allow to air dry.

Results - Soft, shiny and moisturized curls!
