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.
