Product Review: Shea Moisture African Black Soap Purification Masque

  

Hi guys,

This review is long overdue as I’ve finished this product and thrown away the empty container sef.

Disclaimer: All efforts shall be made to curb excessive typing in this post.

I bought this for the fact that I had never really had a dedicated/store-bought  deep conditioner; that is, I always did DIY deep conditioners or used my regular rinse out conditioner.  Another factor that sealed the deal was that it claimed to alleviate itchy scalp(my number 1 concern in life)

INGREDIENTS:

   

 


 

As you can see, this product is chock-full of good stuff! No red flags in sight. Very impressive.

LOOK, SMELL AND CONSISTENCY:

I like the packaging of this product. I think it looks nice. As for the product itself, it has a grayish colour and is thick(not excessively thick so it washes out easily). This product smells like a mix bananas and sand/earth to me(that’s the only way I can describe it. I don’t mind the smell)

CLAIMS + DIRECTIONS:

  



HOW I USED IT:

I would typically put it on my hair and scalp after shampooing, put on a shower cap and leave it in for an hour or more(depending on how lazy I am to rinse it out and carry on with the rest of wash day). No heat used.

PROS:

  1. It’s moisturizing. I can use this after shampooing/clarifying and rest assured that my hair will be soft and moisturized.
  2. It has great ingredients. I don’t have to worry about the big bad scary ingredients I try so hard to avoid.
  3. A little goes a long way. I don’t need too much product for it to work.
  4. It has slip. I can detangle with this.

CONS:

  1. It’s not so cheap. At N3200(when I bought it), it’s not the cheapest kid on the blox.
  2. It doesn’t do much for my itchy scalp. I did not notice much/any difference. Then again, perhaps I wasn’t consistent.
  3. It’s small for its price. For N3200, I would have expected more product. I got about  6-8 uses out of it(from my guesstimation) and I was trying to use it ‘gently’.

WOULD I REPURCHASE:

Probably not(except they dash me). I can get the same moisture from a cheaper product. If it actually worked for my itchy scalp, I would have said a definite yes.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

I give this product 3/5. 

WHERE TO BUY:

Have you tried this product before? What did you think? What deep conditioner should I try? Let me know in the comments.
