I ❤ Shea Moisture products! I have been using the Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner, as well as the Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie for over a year now and they work well for me. I like the fact that they’re 99% all natural, which means less synthetic ingredients in my hair.
I was out of my go to, ORS Olive Oil Deep Conditioner, and Target didn’t have any when I was there. I usually buy it from a beauty supply store, but it was late and I knew I needed something for my deep conditioning the following day. So, when I saw the Shea Moisture Masque I knew it would work just as good, if not better. So I bought it. It usually sales for $11.99 at Target, which is $7 more than my ORS. *side eye* But I figured I was doing a good thing for my hair in the long run. Besides, Shea Moisture products have yet to fail me. As luck would have it, when I got to the register, it was actually on sale for $9.59! *side eye slowing fading*

How to use
Section clean wet hair. Apply generously. Use a wide tooth comb to distribute evenly from root to ends. Leave in for 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. For extra-conditioning cover hair with a plastic cap. Apply moderate heat for up to 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. When using a hair steamer do not cover hair. Moist heat will add to the masque’s hydration.
I love the smell of this conditioner! It smells like baby powder and gardenias. I ❤ gardenias! The consistency is a loose cream and not thick at all. The directions indicate to apply generously. I found even in doing so, a little goes a long way. That’s definitely a plus!
I had pre-pooed overnight using coconut oil. Before washing, I deep conditioned for 30 minutes using a mixture of Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Style Milk and vitamin E, JBCO, and Rosemary oils. I washed using my Rosemary Nettle Shampoo Bar. I then did an oil rinse using EVOO and afterwards applied the Shea Moisture Smooth and Repair Nourishing Hair Masque. I covered my hair with a plastic bag and then with my deep conditioning cap. I did a second deep conditioning. Since the conditioner is so thin and being that my hair was wet, I expected the conditioner to run as it sat on my hair, but it didn’t. I kept the conditioning cap on for about it 30-45 minutes, but I got busy and didn’t rinse the conditioner out until maybe after an hour and a half. This deep conditioning masque did not disappoint! After rinsing, my curls were already starting to clump and were nicely defined; my hair was nice and shiny and soft!
I am thoroughly pleased with this deep conditioning hair masque. This is another Shea Moisture product that I will be adding to my arsenal being that I continue to get the same results I got today. I just may be saying goodbye to my ORS. Right now my hair is happy, happy, happy!!!
