Let’s talk hair products! If you haven’t heard of or used Shea Moisture products you are missing out. Shea Moisture is one of my favorite product lines. Not only are their products loaded with all natural ingredients, they are also reasonably priced. I tried the Thickening Shampoo (12 0z.), Volumizing Conditioner (12 oz.), Thickening Moisture Mist (8 oz.) and the Anti-Breakage Masque (12 oz.) from Shea Moisture’s Organic Yucca and Baobob line. I purchased all products from Target for $9.99 per bottle.

Thickening Shampoo – This shampoo is the truth! It may be the best I’ve ever tried. (Yes! It’s that serious!) It’s a sulfate-free shampoo that does a great job of cleansing my hair and scalp. You only need a quarter-sized amount to get a crazy, velvety lather. It doesn’t strip my hair and leave that dry, squeaky-clean feeling you get with a lot of other shampoos. After shampooing with this stuff my hair feels very moisturized. Since I use so little during each wash it takes me about 4-6 months to use this entire bottle. Can you say staple?
Volumizing Conditioner – This conditioner can be used as a regular rinse-out conditioner or a leave-in conditioner. I’ve only used it as a leave-in conditioner/moisturizer. The consistency is pretty creamy, thin and light. When it comes to a conditioner, I’m looking for something that is a little thicker and coats the hair strands very well. Since this conditioner is a lot lighter, it serves as an awesome leave-in conditioner for me. I get the same results when I apply it to damp or dry hair; it penetrates the hair and leaves it feeling extremely moisturized and soft. When my hair dries it still maintains the moisture and softness. It also aids in detangling and softens up any tangles or knots I have. This is my favorite leave-in conditioner/moisturizer and yet another staple in my regimen!
Anti-Breakage Masque – I’ve searched high and low for the perfect deep conditioner for my hair. When it comes to deep conditioners and hair masques, I’m looking for something that is thick, creamy, coats my hair strands and gives my hair LIFE leaves my strands soft, shiny and moisturized. I’m also looking for something that has amazing slip and melts kinks, knots and tangles, making the detangling process a lot easier. This was not it. The consistency is very creamy and thick, but that’s the only good thing I can say about this hair masque. I really didn’t like how it felt going on my hair. It seemed to just sit on top of my hair and did not soften or moisturize it whatsoever. I let it sit on my hair for about an hour (and I even steamed with it) before rinsing. Detangling was impossible and after rinsing my hair it was anything but moisturized. This masque was a no-go for my kinks and curls. I won’t be repurchasing.
Thickening Mist – I really like this mist! When my hair feels dry, I apply a few squirts of this mist and it refreshes and revives my hair. It’s very light and soaks right into my hair strands. No greasy feeling or film. I used this as a braid spray when I had senegalese twists and I loved it. When I removed my twists my hair was so soft. I will definitely repurchase this but only when I’m rocking a protective style such as braids, twists, etc. Since I mainly use water and the Shea Moisture leave-in conditioner (mentioned above) as my main moisturizers, I really don’t feel the need to use this as much. It’s still an awesome mist though!
All the products have a very light pleasant scent…I actually love the smell. I can’t say I noticed any affects, but the mist did give my hair more volume when I applied it. Nonetheless, I think most of the products from this particular line are great! Although the masque didn’t work for me, I still give the Shea Moisture Yucca & Baobob line two thumbs up because my hair has fallen in love with shampoo, conditioner and mist! I highly recommend this shea moisture line.
