I have been using Shea Moisture for well over a year and have pretty much stuck with the Raw Shea Butter line. I LOVE the smell and it works wonders on my hair. It's no secret it has taken me a long time to find the right mixture of products that keep my hair moisturized, healthy and tangle free so I really need to do product reviews on my arsenal and it's time to discuss the Restorative Conditioner.
I've already done a review on the Deep Treatment Masque from this line and I primarily use that after I cleanse my hair. I use the Restorative conditioner when I am just jump in the shower and want to revive my wash and go.
Shea Moisture boasts no Sulfates, parabens, phthaltes, paraffin gluten, propylene glycol, mineral oil and quite a few more! That alone is a plus for me since I'm really big on natural products and all those silicones just sit on my hair. This is also the conditioner they use in their Shea Moisture Hair Color System and just lets me know it has some seriously conditioning properties.
I initially starting using this as a add-on to my Kinky Curly Knot Today leave-in. It's a bit heavier than Knot Today so dependent upon what my hair needs I will choose which one to use but most times I just mix them together. There is a pleasant smell with this line that I love and if you know me then you know it's gotta smell good if I'm gonna put it in my hair. I think it's the sea kelp that I like. It's thick and does have some slip which is always good for keeping the tangles at bay.

***** Excellent! Will buy again and may become a staple product.
Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner *****
This conditioner is here to stay! I LOVE it! Like I said earlier, it is thicker than Kinky Curly Knot Today but sometimes I really need that. I let my hair guide me on what conditioner I need to use. Now that it's colder, I've got winter worries so I'll be using it more than Knot Today. I'm in dry ass Colorado, so I gotta make moisture retention priority. This always has my hair looking great and feeling soft and it goes a long way.
The price is right because it's around ten dollars for a 13 oz bottle with a pump (yay!) and it can be found lots of places including Target. The great thing about Target is they have Shea Moisture products on sale quite often and if you have a Target debit card you get 5% off every purchase you use with the card. I have gotten GREAT deals on the Shea Moisture line at Walgreen's too pretty often so between Target, CVS and Walgreen's, you should NEVER have to pay full price for them. Just watch the sales.
This is truly worth the price and if you are having a moisture problem I say give this line a try.
Keeping you all in the now Naturals,
