Hey guys in today’s post I’ll be sharing with you a hair review on Shea Moisture’s Raw Shea Butter line. This is my first time using their products and I thought it would be better if I got the holiday bundle which includes the 8 and 6 oz bottles. This way, if I don’t like the products I don’t have much to work with.
I was so excited to try this product for you guys I even did it when I was sick. I wanted to try this bundle as well as my Cantu products to see how my hair currently looks with a flat twist out. I dont do much of these, but lets see how it goes.
I hate doing reviews because my opinions may not be in agreement with yours and I don’t want it to seem as if I’m knocking anyone’s favorite product, so if this is your holy grail product. Sorry!
Before shampooing (old wash and go)
I Sectioned my hair in half, at first there wasn’t much lather and I’m not too particular about the smell. It did nothing for me, and not seeing a shampoo lather makes me feel like its not being cleaned. Having put more shampoo and wetting my hair a bit more, that’s when it started to lather. It made my hair feel brittle, almost mattifying, like it was going to knot and break apart when I was going to wash it out. Overall I dont think I’ll be buying this shampoo again. I didnt like the smell and how it made the texture of my hair feel. Sorry Shea, but I think they’re better shampoos out there.
The hunt continues !
UPDATE: It make my hair soft, and curly once my hair is sectioned and tangle free.
Okay, so this conditioner made my hair feel so soft. There was a big comparison in how it made my hair feel right after I rinsed out the shampoo. This product had great slip, but it was a bit on the thick side which may make you use alot more than you need, you just have to work with it. I left it in for about 5 mins. It Made my hair super soft, and I could finger detangle my hair. Lets just say I prefer this product over the shampoo and the masque.
UPDATE: I still enjoy using this product.
At first I was excited to try this product, but after applying it to my hair. I hated it because it kinda made my hair, almost feel like the texture the shampoo gave me. I know hates a strong word, and the scent doesn’t help. Ive used this only once, so I can’t really tell if I hate it or love it so I’ll keep you guys updated. The texture of the masque was a little thick, not too creamy. I left it on for about 5 minutes maybe, but I don’t think it did much for me, but ill try again and keep you guys updated.
UPDATE: First off, every time I use this product, the texture of it is never the same. Sometimes its thick, and the other times its creamy. When I apply my Olive & Almond Oil duo to this masque, I like it better for my hair. Scent still does nothing for me. I'm big on scent if you can't tell.
Twist Out Style
To do my twist out, I used the Cantu Coconut Curling Cream. I really enjoy using this product. It smells good, an it keeps my hair moisturized. The only con I may have about this product is the white flakes I get when I mix it with a gel. I didn’t pull these out until 5 days later because I got sick, but I’m fine with how it turned out. When I first went natural, I hated twist outs and braid outs. Now I feel I may do them more often, so Ill be getting a new product to try out for that (any suggestions?). I hope this post was helpful to all my new naturalistas, and transitioners.
