Let’s talk hair products.
I’m very, very picky about what I put on my hair. Once, when I was in high school, I took a box of dye to my mane and my hair over-processed. My hair was literally snapping off. I was crying and vigorously washing the devil’s potion out. I went to my aunt, who is a hair stylist and she cut all the bad parts out and also put some hair restorative conditioner to help with what hair I had left. Now, I would share a picture of this but for obvious reasons, I have burned all the remaining evidence of this horrible time in my life. So I found this sweet picture that is very close to what was happening on my head.
So picture this but a little more choppy. Oh and add braces AND glasses. Yeaaaa.
I was cute. So since that traumatic experience, I cannot stress that I’m very careful who cuts/colors and what products go on my head.
So with that, I kept seeing advertisements for Shea Moisture as well as a the product itself on the shelves at stores. I kept thinking, well that looks interesting…let me do some research. After doing my research, it fit my criteria…so sulfate free and color safe. It also has raw and a lot of certified organic products. Winning. I found where you can get FREE LARGE samples here plus a $2 off coupon! It also looks like they are restocking some so keep checking in for your free samples. Double Winning.
So I got my sample 2 days ago and have been using it daily (which I tend to wash my hair daily anyways because I can’t control all this madness and super thickness).
It’s the Shea Moisture- Raw Shea Butter
- My hair is friggin soft.
- Smells like the beach…a good beach.
- The smell stays all day.
- My hair is shiner.
- It didn’t frizz up after blow drying and straightening.
- You really don’t need to use much (Saving!)
- Although it smells amazing…it is very strong (still not totally a strike for me).
- I had to really make sure it was washed out. I know with previous sulfate free shampoos, it takes a minute to wash out.
So all in all, I give this stuff an 9/10. I’m totally going to order more samples of the other Shea Moisture line, just to see what the other stuff is like but I WILL be buying this one!
