I’ve been using Shea Moisture products for a long while now but just haven’t gotten around to doing a review of them. Now…I don’t like ALL of them but I have to say it’s a really good and worthwhile brand. I’m sure most of you have heard about them and their pretty extensive line. They are even branching out into body washes and hair color so it’s more than time to finally give you my take on a few.
Quite a few Naturals love this line or ask about various products from this line. Also, SM is popping up in quite a few stores now. SM is in Target, Walgreens, CVS and I’ve even seen them recently in Wal-Mart! Yes, even Wally World is getting on the Natural hair bandwagon.
The Shea Moisture organic raw shea butter deep treatment hair masque contains a rich blend of argan oil, vegetable glycerin, sea kelp extract and avocado oil. It has shea butter extracts, which deeply moisturize and repair damage to your hair and scalp. Also helps protect your hair from heat and styling damage. Ideal for all hair types. Available in a 12-oz. container.
This rich treatment deeply moisturizes and repairs hair, while providing a protective barrier for the hair from heat and styling aids. Target.com
Shea Moisture boasts no Sulfates, parabens, phthaltes, paraffin gluten, propylene glycol, mineral oil and quite a few more! It’s more than a mouthful of what they DON’T have so I knew this brand was totally worth a try. I have been looking for a deep conditioner that would be my staple even before I started the curly girl method. Reason being I was still using shampoo and it would always leave my hair feeling stripped. I hadn’t tried the CGM yet so I needed a powerhouse conditioner to combat the shampoo.
The first five ingredients in Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque:
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea butter)
* Poor rating. Will not be buying again ever!!
** Mediocre. Will not be buying again.
*** Average. May or may not buy again.
**** Above average. Will probably buy again.
***** Excellent! Will buy again and may become a staple product.
Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque *****
Oh man….I LOVE this stuff! It is thick, creamy and softens my hair like nothing other. It smells great and that is a huge plus. I have to like the smell or I’m not gonna use it. It can even be a leave in and I have done that a few times with great results. It mixes and plays well with Kinky Curly (another line I love) so I use them together with no problems. I still use it after cleansing my hair with the AS I AM Coconut Cleansing Conditioner because it does such a great job making my hair look awesome. My sister and daughter have jumped on the bandwagon and it has become a staple deep conditioner or weekly conditioner for them too.
So many reasons have made this my staple deep conditioner! The price is right because it’s around ten dollars for a 12 oz jar and it goes a long way. 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 make sure to get my 5% off every time I pick up a bottle. This brand and this item is well worth a try.
Keeping you all in the now Naturals,
Sounds good, but I tried the pink label of SM and it caused an allergic reaction. My first organic product and I couldn't stop itching, may try this part of the line in the future.
Oh wow, I think that's the coconut and Hibiscus line. I didn't like the smoothie but I love this line the best. So sorry you had that issue.
I love deep conditioners. I use the restoratve condish as a leave in and I love it. Great review. Will visit this after I get rid of my other deep conditioners 🙂
Yes, they are the best and I'm glad I'm not alone in the love of this brand. Thanks for sharing.
I have always looked at these products, but have never tried them. Maybe I need to reconsider. BTW, how did you ever juggle going to school, working, family and blogging. I have found that I just can't do them all and something (blogging) has to give.
This is a staple for me as well. I'm sooo glad they reformulated it because a little over a year ago, it had no slip…well not enough.
by the way, i'm about to tag you on an A-Z post 🙂
Common Africans then started using Shea butter to protect their skin and hair from the massive sun and coarse winds African deserts. Shea butter was also used as a healing remedy for circumcision, an insect repellent, and as an antiperspirant.
During Pregnancy, African women rub their stomachs with Shea butter to prevent stretch marks; during birth women would squat over a tub of warm water and Shea oil to reduce to pain of child birth; after birth, babies are massaged head to toe with Shea butter, for healthy, glowing skin.
