Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter 2

Hey Beauties! So a few weeks back, Walgreens had a  Shea Moisture BOGO sale going on! (Buy one, Get one FREE b!). Because I am  a natural hair product junkie, I ended up getting a crap load of things! LOL. From their bar soaps to conditioners! What I’m about to review today is a small portion! In addition, this review was long overdue! I couldn’t wait to tell ya’ll about it! Today I will be reviewing Shea Moisture’s Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo and the Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque.

MY REVIEW: Moisture Retention Shampoo

Ever since it started getting frigid in NYC, I’ve felt like my hair has been excessively dry. The Moisture Retention Shampoo was so light weight! even in consistency. It cleansed and infused moisture to my curls. If it’s one thing I’ve learned? It’s that a little goes a LONG way with this shampoo. You only need about a quarter size amount for each section of your hair. It lathered so thick! I was loving it! I normally have to drench my hair in shampoo for it to be worked in efficiently, but I didn’t have to do that with the Moisture Retention shampoo.  My hair was completely comb-through and soft to the touch! The shampoo did everything it claimed. In fact, the only time I used my wide tooth comb was when I was parting my hair into sections before working the deep treatment in. After that, I was just finger combing my hair. My hair was soft to the touch! I literally heard the angels sing as I got out the shower.

My hair AFTER washing it with Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo:

As you can see, after washing my hair with the shampoo, majority of my curls are gone. My hair is completely comb through and slightly stretched. The curls are not as defined like they originally were in the first picture, but that’s because I had product in my hair. My head felt so light! LOL.

MY REVIEW: Deep Treatment

This bad boy is heaven in a jar! The consistency felt like it was whipped. I expected it to be creamy like most deep treatments, but it slowly dissolved into my hair as i was working it in. My hair was come-though like heck! I’ve decided to wear a heating cap to deeply penetrate my scalp. When I was ready to rinse everything out, my hair felt so moisturized, light, and soft! I loved the state my hair was in!

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter

My hair feels amazing! I ended up styling my hair in a high puff. I used minimal product. All I did was use my favorite gel Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste on my edges to slick them down. As it is right now, my hair is soft and shiny as ever! I definitely recommend Shea Moisture’s Raw Shea Butter line! the amount of moisture that my hair has received from these two products combined is amazing. My hair no longer feels dry, and I don’t feel my strands snapping when I’m combing it! LOL!

    • LOL I feel you! cause in your mind you know that there has to be something better out there hahaha

  • Your hair looks great!! I used Shea Moisture products from time to time, too, and I’m usually very pleased with the results. BTW, I really need that hooded bonnet dryer. Do you love it!?

    • YES! I love shea moistures products! Thankyou love! & Its cool, I wouldn’t say its the GREATEST heated bonnet, but it got the job done. It wasn’t too hot or too warm. It was just right. I definitely am seeking a better one though. I kind of just went to the beauty supply store and just grabbed it lol, i was desperate for heat for my treatments. So i LIKE it. I dont love it.

  • You hair is gorgeous! I like Shea Moisture products too. I go between their products and Creme of Nature.

    • Thank you Trice! I haven’t used much of creme of natures products but I’ll definitely check it out!

    I don’t have a favorite shampoo it kind of fluctuates every time depending on what i need but i frequently use the Olive Oil Shampoo & Conditioners &/or the shampoos that have Keratin in them for when i need a more polished look for likee meetings/interiews etc because my hair is slightly unmanageable at times as you know form doing my tweist out for me about month ago lmaooo 🙂

    • LMAO. Yes! you have ALOOOOOOOOOT of hair child!

  • I actually use this shampoo but haven’t tried the conditioner yet. Great results!
