PRODUCT REVIEW: Shea Moisture Shampoo

I recently participated in a Twitter discussion for yoga entrepreneurs hosted by Black Enterprise and much to my delight, I won a yoga mat for sharing my experience!  And even better, the mat was a gift from a Natural in Nashville favorite: Shea Moisture.  As a thank you, I had to share something I haven't said specifically: I love their shampoos!*

Thank you, Shea Moisture!!

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo; Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo.

$8.49 - $10.49, depending on the retailer.

Target is one of the more popular distributors of Shea Moisture products.  Walgreens offers the shampoos at buy one get one free relatively often, which I love.

The deep cleansing shampoo came highly recommended from someone I trusted for washing locs and my first wash lived up to their expectations.  I did experience deep cleansing although I had to work a bit to lather.  Once I worked it into my locs, the African black soap played its part and help to clean and free my locs from product, workouts and everyday toxins.  My locs were left clean, not stripped, but I could definitely tell my hair needed to be replenished.

I shared this shampoos in our Christmas Wishes Giveaway, so it's secret I am a fan. I initially decided to give the raw shea butter a try to test the moisture retention.  This one worked easily into my locs and created a rich, full lather.  I know the previous wash helped, but I like the consistency of the Raw Shea Butter.  I think the thick, creamy texture creates a lather that worked right into the roots and the length of my locs.  While the African Black Soap does the cleaning work, the Raw Shea Butter left my hair with a light, sweet scent that I always get a whiff of at the perfect moment. And it delivered on the moisture retention.  My hair felt softer immediately and the sheen that comes with clean appeared as my locs dried naturally.

 I think I'm going to wear this ponytail more often!

While I am still open to trying new shampoos, it feels good to have a cleansing and moisturizing option I can rely on again.  Stay close for my review of the remaining shampoos in the Shea Moisture line.
