A new favorite product for healthier, softer hair. Completely organic, natural, and vegan.
Helllooo everyone! This is officially my second post here on my blog! (I’ll stop counting after three posts or so)
So today I want to talk about one of my most recent goals. Or epiphanies. Or something. Anyways. I want nice, healthy hair. Doesn’t everyone? I’ve been finding a lot of split ends lately and it’s just kind of frustrating because I’m also trying to grow my hair out. As a result, I perused the internet for ways of keeping the undamaged parts of my hair undamaged. Here’s what I found:
Cue the holy grail music because SHEA MOISTURE. Shea moisture is my hair’s HG product for softness and moisture . . . and did I say softness? I only showed the Raw Shea Butter line because that is what I’m using the most right now (conditioner and deep treatment masque). But I am planning to buy the Yucca and Baobab thickening treatment in (ANOTHER) attempt to lift my flat hair. More on that later.
The reason I love Shea Moisture is that it uses only all-natural, organic ingredients. This means no silicones, which was definitely one of my goals for a new hair care regimen. While silicones do provide an instantaneous appearance of healthy and shiny hair, they don’t do your hair any good in the long term. Shea Moisture products are choc-full of beneficial oils and butters that give your hair lots and lots of love. ❤
So far, I’ve tried the conditioner and deep treatment masque. Let me just say that the deep treatment masque is amazing. I usually leave it in my hair 30-40 minutes before I wash it out in the shower. I don’t feel the immediate smoothness rinsing it out I used to feel when using silicone products, but after blow-drying my hair (which is actually BETTER than airdrying O: ) my hair feels soo much softer. And it smells nice. I would use this product every time I washed my hair, but I usually don’t have time to put it in, so I bought the conditioner.
I use the conditioner much the same way, except I only leave it on for about 3 minutes or so. I massage it in my hair in the shower, then wash my face and body and rinse out the conditioner. The effects aren’t as dramatic as the masque, I’d say, but I feel better knowing the ingredients are good. 🙂
Oh yeah! I also use the deep treatment masque as a leave-in for my lower-shaft hair and ends. I simply dab a small amount on my hair and rub it in, and it feels so soft!
The only drawback I can think of is that the smell may not be for everyone. While I personally think it smells great, I have seen quite a few reviews complaining about the smell. But the payout is definitely worth it.
Love, love, love. 😀
