Product Review: Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque

Jackpot! I think I'm inlove!

This product is the best thing that has happened to my hair since going natural, period. Ok, so for months now I've been complaining about the state of my hair. "It's thirsteeehhh!" You could often hear me scream. Nothing seemed to come close to quenching it except for the mixed chicks detangling deep conditioner. It does a good job of making my hair feel moisturized, but it still wasn't 100% what I needed. It is still a staple product in my hair regiment though. Anywho, whenever I would cry for help a sista friend, Lisa, would say try Shea Moisture. So finally I ordered the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque from last week and used it for the first time this weekend. Oh.My.Good.God. I'm totally inlove.

The consistency of the product isn't super duper thick, but it's not runny either. This satisfied me in two ways: 1) This made it easier to work through my hair and 2) It was thick enough that I felt like it was going to really moisturize.

The smell is so fantabulous! I kept waking up all night wondering who was wearing perfume and where could I buy it lol. Now, it's not heavily perfumed by any means...It's more like a mixture of different oils that smell great!

Now, I didn't use this product as a deep conditioner, but rather as a leave-in conditioner (it states on the package that it can be used in such a way) and my hair thanks me for it. I cowashed my hair, towel blotted, then added the Shea Moisture throughout. Loves it! Later in the day I was randomly pulling at my curls and thought man! My hair is super duper moisturized and soft! Even my husband commented on how soft my hair was. Now, I used it with an Aubrey conditioner and...well, that's another review in itself. Next I want to buy the Shea Moisture shampoo. The routine for next time will be:

Deep Condition with Mixed Chicks
Use Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque as a leavein

My guess is that my hair is going to be so moisturized and fantabulous that I'm not gonna be able to take all of the lusciousness!

I love this masque. It made my hair dry and hard when I used it as a deep conditioner but when I used it as a leave-in -- HEAVEN! I use it then take a hot shower and my hair just drinks up the moisture. My hair is so soft after I use it, nothing else makes my hair feel this way.
