Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque

My hair gets dry in the winter. It's all of that dry air, and of course the fact that I have to use a blow drier on my hair every day instead of occasionally like I do in the summer. I was talking about this to a friend of mine a couple of years ago. She recommended that I try ethnic products on my hair. It never occurred to me. My friend was a person of color, and she told me that she always had to deal with dry hair. She informed me "we have the best products for dry hair." I was at the store the other day, and as I walked down the hair products aisle, I remembered this conversation. I decided to take a look at some of the products. And I purchased Shea Moisture's Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque. I decided to share a review of this product.

The Product

Shea Moisture is a company that has been around for a while. It all started in 1912 when Sofi Tucker shows up and begins selling shea butter and soap. This company is this woman's legacy to the world. The company strives to maintain quality products that are accessible to everyone. And 10% of their profits go to Community Commerce which funds women led businesses. They mainly support businesses that are needed in the production of their products. 

The deep treatment masque claims to moisturize and repair dry damaged hair. The product contains shea butter of course, kaolin, and avocado oil. There are other ingredients too, but these were some of the ones I found most interesting. Everybody knows that all of these ingredients are great for beauty treatments. I was surprised when I did some reading that kaolin is actually used in treating side effects of radiation treatments.

What I Think

I opened the container and I saw a cream. I followed the directions on the package, and applied the masque to my hair. The instructions state that you should use the product in wet hair for 30 minutes. It went through my hair smoothly, and I was able to comb it through as the instructions recommended. I rinsed it out of my hair, and blew it dry. I looked in the mirror. And my hair looked a little shinier. And it definitely felt soft. The first treatment worked well.

I am one of those people who always thinks if one is good two is better. I thought to myself would the product be better if it was left in over night? I fortunately did a little reading on this before I tried it. The Shea Moisture company does not recommend that. It states that a build up could cause drying of hair. This would defeat the purpose of me using the product. 

I liked this product. I was easy to use, and it has a price tag that is kind to the wallet. I paid around $10.00 for the item on sale. The container is easy to get into and contains 12 oz. So it will last a little while. I liked how the product is using fair trade and organic ingredients. And best of all I liked how my hair felt after I used the product.

I did not receive any compensation or products for this review.
