It’s super easy to get caught up in all the awesomeness that is the natural hair movement. More than ever before, women of multiple colors are embracing their glorious God-given curls and purchasing products by the pound. I’m also a PJ ( product junkie for those not in the know) so I have quite a few jars and bottles in my linen closet:
While my current favorites are the DevaCurl No-Poo and OneCondition, a girl can only co-wash so much. I also have plenty of strengthening products like the Monoi serum and LivingProof Restore Masque. However, I needed a good deep conditioner to protect these strands and decided to buy SheaMoisture’s Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque. I tried it out this past Friday and I love it!
First I pre-poo’d with coconut oil while I did some volunteering that morning:
(There’s a cap under there helping my hair marinate in all that awesome coconut oil ;) )
My curls aren’t incredibly defined, but I’m hoping that I will see a change once I’m done with the masque.
Once I got home, I shampooed and conditioned before applying the masque throughout my hair. I added one tablespoon extra virgin olive oil to the masque as suggested on the package to really get a good result:
As you can see, my curl pattern was really starting to show after I applied the mixture. I’m a mix of 3c/4a if that helps :)
Putting on a developer cap, I sat under heat for 30 minutes to lift my hair cuticle and help the masque do its thing!
After I rinsed my hair with cool water, this is what my newly-conditioned hair looked like. My GOODNESS, my hair was so soft! I usually just try to use my own body heat by wrapping my capped head with a bath towel and hoping that that’s enough but that heat does wonders.
My curl pattern seemed much more defined and I liked the smell. It wasn’t incredibly overpowering and I liked that both textures on my head seemed fully moisturized. Usually my 4a sections act like they don’t know how to be soft, but this masque covered everybody ( no pun intended). I’m definitely incorporating this mask into my weekly deep condition routine. At $11.99 a jar at your local Target, it’s worth the price tag. What’s your favorite deep conditioner?
