Product Review: Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative conditioner

Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner
Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner


Description: Our leave-in or rinse out conditioner detangles, moisturizes, repairs and restores lifeless, damaged hair.
Directions: Work conditioner through hair from root to ends.  Leave on for 3 minutes then rinse.  For deeper conditioning, leave on for up to 15 minutes.  As a leave-in, work a dime sized amount through damp hair, then style as desired.

Pros:

  • Thick: I absolutely LOVE thick conditioner. I feel like it coats my hair so much better than thinner conditioner
  • Slip- This conditioner gave me pretty decent slip, at least from what I can remember
  • Can be used as a leave in AND deep conditioner- In the past, I've used regular conditioner as a "leave in". Now this product can actually double as a leave-in, which is good for me..so now I don't have to use regular conditioner for that lol
Cons:
  • Smell- Just like the shampoo. I don't know what exactly bothers me about the smell
  • It takes a lot of product to coat my hair: And I do mean A LOT.
  • The pump- I don't know if I just got a faulty pump, or if all of them are like mine, but I hate how my pump works lol. It's hard to press down and it clicks when you push the pump all the way down. I feel like I'm getting an arm work out every time I use the conditioner. 

Overall, this gets a 7/10 from me. I don't hate it, but I don't absolutely love it. I think overall the Raw Shea Butter line from Shea Moisture isn't exactly for me. I remember using the deep conditioner from this line and hating it because it pretty much did nothing for my hair. Eh, I don't think I would repurchase again. That could change though.

Product Review: Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo


Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo


Description: Our sulfate-free shampoo helps moisturize and repair dry, damaged or over-processed hair
Directions: Apply to wet hair and gently massage into a rich lather. Rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary

Pros:

  • Watery consistency- For me, thick/creamy shampoo just isn't my friend in the summer time. It takes more time to rinse out and my hair is the last thing I wan tot do when it's hot.
  • Gets my hair clean without stripping it- I've tried some other "sulfate free" shampoos that left my hair feeling SUPER stripped. I love the fact that I can use this, get lather and still get clean hair.
Cons:



  • Smell- It smells like the other products from the Raw Shea Butter line and the smell lingers. I don't mind if smells linger, but not if I don't like how it smells. And it's one of those smells that you can taste when you open your mouth..

Overall, I give this shampoo an 8/10, it does what it's supposed to do; get my hair clean. I don't know if it helps "moisturize" and "repair" my hair per say, but since it doesn't completely strip my hair, I guess that's what it does? I've used other "sulfate-free" shampoos in the past and they've left my hair feeling completely stripped of my life..like seriously. This one? This one is good in my book.
