Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner Review

Shea Moisture:Moisture Retention Shampoo

Price: $9.99 13oz 

Claims:"Our gentle all natural shampoo will help soften, moisturize and repair damaged over process hair"

Consistency: Thin & runny. I would say this product will be ideal to use in a nozzle bottle for those who prefer to get to their roots only. 

Deionized Water, Decyl Glucoside (Sugar Beets), African Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Argan Oil, Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Rosemary Extract, Sea Kelp Extract, Vitamin E, Lonicera Caprifolium Flower Extract (Honeysuckle), Lonicera Japonica Flower Extract (Japanese Honeysuckle)

My Opinion: 
This shampoo overall is pretty good. It is a sulfate free shampoo which is make it less of a harsh shampoo and that is why I decided on getting it. People claim that with this shampoo you are able to detangle with it and that it provides amazing moisture. In my own opinion while using the shampoo I don't see it helping with loosing up my tangles. So attempting to "detangled" or loosen my tangles with this shampoo was a fail.This shampoo does help with getting rid of any build up and was not stripping to my hair at all which made my hair feel decently moisturized (nothing dramatic though). The shampoo also lathers up rather nicely. I don't have anything negative to say about this product.

Will I Repurchase? 
Yes, once the bottle runs out I most likely will buy it again.

Shea Moisture:Restorative Conditioner

Price: $9.99 13oz Pump Bottle 

Claims: "Our leave-in or rinse out conditioner detangles, moisturizes, repairs and restores lifeless damaged hair."

Consistency: It appears to be a thick product in the bottle but when it's pumped out it has a lotion type consistency. The pump bottle does make the product come out a lot easier compared to using a cap top. 

Deionized Water, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, Behentrimonium Chloride, Essential Oil Blend, Vegetable Glycerin, Emulsifying Wax, Sea Kelp Extract, Panthenol (Vitamin B-5), Avocado Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Daucus Carota Sativa Seed Oil (Carrot)

My Opinion:
Hates this I tried this is multiple ways and my hair disagreed with it. I used this as a co-wash, leave in and moisturizer

Thoughts as a Co-wash:
This stuff made my hair so tangled and matted. No moisturizing properties what so ever. I tried using it three times and each time was a failure. I would have to follow up with a different conditioner so I can detangled the mess it left. 

Thoughts as a Leave-In: 
I didn't notice anything significant as a leave in. Didn't provide any moisture just made my hair feel dry and almost rough.

Thoughts as a Moisturizer:
Now even though this isn't directed as a moisturizing I still decided to try it out anyway, last time I checked there were no rules about using a product. This stuff just sat on my hair and did nothing. No shine, no moisture, no softness, absolute nothing and I just couldn't stand the smell when used as a moisturizer it just smelled awful. 

Will I Repurchase?
Definitely not, I even got rid of the bottle with product inside. I just could not deal with the results from this product. I tried it in every way possible and every result was a fail. I did not try it as a deep conditioner but how that stuff works as a co-wash I can just imagine how bad the results will be with just leaving this on for a longer period of time.

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length. 

Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

Wash Day

[1] Detangled hair & shampooed in four sections with ORS Aloe Shampoo. I feel that this shampooed is a great shampoo especially to remove build up.
[2] Deep condition with Creme of Nature Moisture Milk Masque. I recently purchased this deep conditioner and wanted to see how well it worked on freshly washed hair. I applied it to my four sections starting from tip working my way up to the root. I put on two plastic caps and left it on for 40 minutes while I did some house cleaning. Rinsing the product out it was nothing impressing. My hair looked really shiny and moisturized, hair detangled rather easily but I detangled prior. First impression it did not wow me.
[3] Leave in of choice was Chi Keratin mist because my hair has been shedding like crazy and Creme of Nature 7-in-1
[4] I also recently purchased Creme of Nature Foaming Lotion. I never used a foaming lotion my initial reason of purchasing this was to do a flexi rod set but I decided to skip that and just braid my hair. I did t…
