Shea Moisture is a hugely popular U.S beauty brand. Previously the brand’s products were quite tricky to get hold of in the UK so their launch at Beautydotcom has been met with much excitement and delight – I can already foresee the brand doing really well over here in the UK.
Cruelty free, free of chemicals nasties such as parabens, are ethically traded and made with certified organic Shea Butter. Excellent stuff isn’t it?!
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hair Care Collection
I was super lucky to kindly receive a trio of products from Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus collection to test out. This range is designed for people with thick, curly hair who are seeking haircare with anti-frizz, moisture, and shine properties. For reference my hair is thick, prone to frizz, and naturally on the dry side – therefore I am a good candidate for this particular range of products.
All three of the products, which I have been trialling out over the last few days feature the following key ingredients:
- Coconut Oil - hydrates and protects hair while reducing breakage.
- Silk Protein - smoothes hair for a soft, silky feel.
- Neem Oil - controls frizz while adding brilliant shine.
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo
The first and foremost feature to love about this shampoo (aside from the gorgeous yummy coconut scent) is the fact that it is sulfate-free, so there is no worry of harsh chemicals like SLS/SLES.
This moisturising shampoo has proved to be a real treat for my naturally thick, dry hair. It is packed full of goodness such as shea butter, coconut oil and neem oil (to name just a few) which resulted in me being left with a mane full of soft shiny hair! Since I bleach and colour my hair it can often look dry and dull, however this shampoo has completely nourished my hair leaving it perky and healthy-looking! My hair colour (dyed) also looks more vibrant so I would continue using this shampoo for that fact alone.
Consistency-wise, the shampoo is light and creamy. Although it is slightly runny when it comes out of the bottle, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it produced a very rich lather. Overall it cleanses really effectively, leaving both the hair and scalp feeling thoroughly fresh and clean.
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner
the shampoo, this conditioner is light and creamy in consistency. It also has
the same yummy sweet coconut smell – which I'm pleased to inform you last all
I've lost count of all the times I've stood in the shower trying to squeeze conditioner out of the bottle, therefore I am a massive fan of Shea Moisture’s pump packaging for dispensing the product easily.
Anyone who suffers from dry hair will love this conditioner as it restores moisture and smoothes dry hair cuticles. It also leaves the hair feeling all soft and shiny so I can’t fault this conditioner one bit. I particularly like the fact that it tames frizz, as dealing with the odd bout of frizziness here and there can be a real nightmare. However I am super pleased to have found a conditioner to remedy the situation!
Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Moisture Mist
This all-natural moisture mist is fantastic used on damp hair before blow-drying since it gives your finished style added hold and shine. Best of all though, it tames frizz and hydrates the hair in the process. The spray emits a very fine mist so applies easily and evenly. Like the shampoo and conditioner this moisture mist has the same gorgeous coconut scent – you may find it hard to restrain yourself from spraying this product just for the lush scent!
The moisture mist is non-greasy and gives the hair a nice bit of shine, my mum actually remarked on how shiny my hair looked and asked what I had used on it. Although I feel that overall it was the combination of using all three of the products together that caused my hair to be so shiny and healthy looking. I will definitely continue using this trio together.
I have only used these products for a very short period of time, yet the results on my hair were immediate. All three products 100% deliver what they say. I cannot believe how soft and smooth my hair is and it’s completely frizz-free which is often a rarity for me! The shampoo definitely restored moisture to my hair - and perhaps that’s another factor why there currently is no frizz in my hair: Just in case you weren't aware, lack of moisture in the hair is a big contributor to frizz - a moisturising shampoo such as Shea Moisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo is a must!!
These Shea Moisture products have also been particularly effective for nourishing my colour treated hair. My hair colour looks more vibrant and overall my hair is noticeably more hydrated - therefore I am going to stick with them and have already ditched my previous shampoo and conditioner!
