State of Hair prior to applying:
I took out each twist one by one and applied the Restorative Masque. If you didn’t know I normally pre-poo and either leave it in for a couple of hours or overnight. I left the masque in overnight. The next morning, undid each twist, detangled with fingers and combed through with the tangle teezer. I rinsed and shampooed with the Moisture Retention Shampoo and from there I applied the Restorative Conditioner but did not rinse it out. I finished my shower process, sat underneath a heat cap to help it absorb and then sat underneath a dryer until hair was close to dry. I then applied Karen Body Beautifuls Creamylicious and braided my hair.
Shampoo is very moisturizing
Leave In Conditioner (or rinse out depending on how you use it) is very good, absorbs well provides lots of moisture
Price is very good for what you get
The ingredients are all natural
Easy to find this particular line in the Shea Moisture roster which is very interesting.
The Masque sucked, does not go on as smoothly as the Yucca or Black Soap (have to review this one as well but can I tell you that TOOT TOOT, this is my favorite conditioner). I actually had to use some of the black soap on other sections of my hair because the Shea Butter Masque was not cutting it.
I have very dry hair and what I love about this line is that it provides much needed moisture but I notice that for me what’s helping also is the fact that I’m pre-pooing with their masques and it’s allowing the shampoo not to strip my hair since it’s essentially “stripping” the conditioner. I had to re-shampoo a section of hair for some reason and noticed that the moisture factor wasn’t there as it had been before and I experienced tangles in that section.
Would I repurchase:
Yes to the shampoo and conditioner, HELLZ NO to the masque. Since I still have a good amount left, I will be combining it with coconut oil before using as a pre-poo.
