It’s been a little while now that I’ve been away from here, much longer than I wanted. Honestly, It’s because I’ve felt guilty for not posting and it’s lead to a bit of a knock on effect (I might write a separate post on it in the near future, we’ll see).
Anyway, for now here’s a little low down on a couple of hair products I’ve been lusting over.
When an email popped into my inbox asking if I would like to try some hair products that make damaged and frizzy hair feel softer I couldn’t resist. I’m a gal who likes to bleach my hair every now and then so it’s definitely something I need and I’m sure my hair will thank me for it.
The day the products arrived was hair wash day, it’s like it was planned! however, I had to resist using these beauties because I needed to photograph them first and I didn’t want the paper on the outside to get all water damaged. That would’ve made a funky looking flat-lay.
I waited a good few weeks to get a decent flay-lay before trying out the products, that really took some willpower!
Shea Moisture Shampoo (retails at £10.99)
The shampoo smells just like coconuts; honestly, it’s not my favourite smell but I still enjoyed using it even though it’s not a scent that I would usually choose.
HERE’S WHERE IT GETS A LITTLE CONTROVERSIAL:
On some occasions when I used the ‘Shea Moisture’ Shampoo it left my hair feeling fluffy, fresh and all round lovely and clean. Just what you’re after.
On some other days, once I rinsed the shampoo out and dried my hair, it felt greasier than before I started, especially near the roots; yes there is the debate of did I wash it all out? maybe not, I can’t be too sure. However, I’ve only had this greasier feeling after using this ‘Shea Moisture’ Shampoo, it’s never happened to me when using any others which makes me question whether the two are related?
I know that it can’t be the conditioner causing the greaser feeling because I only ever apply any conditioner to the ends of my hair and so it’s never massaged through the scalp.
Shea Moisture Conditioner (retails at £10.99)
This may sound slightly lame but I’ve found so much joy in testing out this conditioner; it could EASILY become a part of the staple hair care routine.
After every use, my hair was left feeling smoother and silkier than before, y’know it’s a feeling that you just can’t beat; especially for someone who naturally has frizzy and knotty hair.
I’ve been using this conditioner for the past 3/4 weeks now and every time I apply roughly 6 pumps from the bottle. So I’ve probably had about 16 applications from the bottle already and there is still at least half of the product left, not bad at all.
It’s one of those items that I’ll probably treat myself to when I reach a high enough number of points on an advantage card. I can’t knock the product in any way but I also just can’t justify spending £10.99 on a bottle of conditioner in one go, no matter how exceptional it is.
Have you tried this brand?
