Last week I went home to visit my family and I saw that my Mom purchased a couple of Shea Moisture products that I currently do not have. I wanted to try them out for myself.
Before we get into the review, here are a few pictures of my hair after I fully detangled my hair and before I washed. I actually went three weeks without washing my hair,and remind me to never do that again. My hair was filthy. From now on, every two weeks it is.
Back to the review...
African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo
What it contains:
Willow Bark extract, African Black Soap, Tea Tree oil, Plantian enzymes, Sugar Beets, Neem oil, Shea, Jojoba oil, Aloe Vera Juice, Vitamin E and many other great ingredients. See thee full list here
What it Claims to do:
This shampoo claims to relieve itching and flaking while cleansing your scalp. It also treats dandruff, psoriasis and eczema.
If you have ever tried Shea Moisture's Purification Masque, it smells exactly like that product. If you haven't tried it, this product smells like lemongrass mixed with bananas and mint. It may smell different to every person but I like the smell. For me it took a while for it to suds up, but that was because I didn't run it under the water long enough. I will say that this is a thick shampoo, and does the job. I only washed once and my hair was very clean. I've used some shampoos where after you pour some into your hand, it slides all over the place and it's hard to transfer it from your hand to your hair. Overall, I give it a 5 out of 5
Yucca & Baobab Volumizing Conditioner
What it contains:
Coconut oil, Shea butter, mango seed oil, Avocado oil, Aloe, Soybean oil, Biotin, and many others. See full list here
What it claims to do:
Strengthen and detangle hair while creating overall healthy hair
This line of products is made for people with fine and thin hair, and I have neither so I can't give you perfect results but I can tell you a little to help you out. Since it is a conditioner, it is in a cream form. I used lots of this product on my hair because I have a lot of hair. I then began to section off my hair and used a wide tooth comb to work the product through. This product works great as a detangler. I was instantly tangle free. If you are looking for a detangler, look no further. Overall 5 out of 5 just because it works wonderfully as a detangler.
