As you all know, I recently did a giveaway, in which I actually gave away a jar of Shea Moisture's Purification Mask. At the time of the giveaway, I had not tested the product out myself, but now the review is here.
A few days go I used this product as a a pre-shampoo treatment.

I really like the smell. For the last couple of days I've been trying to find a smell to relate to it, but I can't. It sort of has a lemon, mint smell. I will say that as soon as you open up this product, the smell will hit you. One thing that I was surprised with was the texture. For some reason I expected it to be thicker, similar to the smoothie and deep treatment masque, but it was the exact opposite. The texture was really thin and water-like almost.
I wet my hair and then applied the product to my scalp and hair, then let it sit with a plastic cap for about an hour. Soon after I rinsed I found my hair to be very clean. I normally do not experience a flaky scalp, but because of the cold weather, my scalp was very dry with buildup. Everything of that such was gone and I was left with clean,soft hair.
Overall I give this product a 5 out of 5. It got the job done. My hair was clean, soft and moisturized. If you have problems with you scalp, such as it being too dry or flaky, this product may be for you. Especially during the winter months.
