You may not have heard of a brand called SheaMoisture so please allow me the pleasure of introducing you to it.
This U.S. natural beauty brand create beauty products that are organic, sulfate free, paraben free and cruelty free.
They contain no paraffin or mineral oils and are made with love while pioneering fair trade through community commerce at home and abroad.
Sounds good huh? Well they’ve just launched four collection from their award winning hair care range in Boots so I figured I ought to give them a try!
I tried out the Raw Shea Butter Extra Moisture Retention Shampoo (£10.99), Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner (£10.99) and the Superfruit Complex 10 in 1 Multi Benefit Hair Masque (£12.99).
I expected both the shampoo and conditioner to have a rich, sweet scent to them, I’ve no idea why but I was surprised to discover that they barely had any scent at all, which was fine by the way it just surprised me.
Despite being designed for damaged hair the shampoo is surprisingly light, not heavy at all and gently lathers leaving your hair feeling clean and soft without being stripped and squeaky.
It contains trace minerals from Sea Kelp help to detoxify and remove impurities and residue and argan oil with shea butter to nourish your scalp and hair.
The conditioner reminded me of a body lotion, not just because of its pump dispenser but in texture too which worried me to begin with!
It is rich, thick and creamy and features the same nourishing ingredients as the shampoo. I applied it through the ends of my hair sparingly, left it for a few mins then rinsed off.
One of the things I noticed immediately after using both products was how soft my hair felt. I always struggle to get a brush through my damp hair to some extent but I actually found it somewhat easier after using this duo.
Once my hair was dry it DEFINITELY felt softer, particularly at the ends which can often be a tad fried and frizzy.
I normally enjoy heavily scented haircare products but I found myself enjoying the clean and fresh scent that this shampoo and conditioner gave me instead.
After using both products for a week or so I also noticed that while I don’t suffer with dandruff I do occasionally get some dry, flaky patches on my scalp. Well I’m pleased to say that these were far less noticeable, undoubtedly helped by the gentle formula and nourishing ingredients within the shampoo and conditioner, which I think is pretty impressive.
Now, the crazily long named Superfruit Complex 10 in 1 Multi Benefit Hair Masque is a BIG winner in my home now and has quickly become one of my must have beauty products, which surprised me because I normally don’t bother with hair masks.
This intensive, antioxidant-rich treatment has been designed to help with an array of haircare issues.
It is designed ultimately to treat damaged hair while providing anti-aging benefits, color protection, hydration, nourishment, rejuvenation, strength, anti-stress, deep conditioning, softness and shine.
Anti ageing for your hair? Who knew! It is meant to be able to counteract the signs of aging by nourishing your scalp with a Superfruit Complex and infusing your hair with ultra-moisturizing Marula Oil and Biotin.
The mask contains a fruit complex blend of Red Raspberry Ketone, Goji, Acai and Guava Extracts rich in anti-aging antioxidants. It also contains Marula Oil with its natural plant peptides to help support hair’s elasticity and Biotin to nourish individual strands for thicker, stronger hair.
Now this product does have a fragrance and it is beautifully light, fresh and fruity, everything I like!
It is creamy and thick and easy to use- just apply to the length of your hair, leave for 5 mins then rinse off.
My hair was left feeling beautifully soft and nourished and once dried, shiny, sleek and not at all weighed down.
It is a real pleasure to use and I’ve been dipping in once a week to a give my hair a bit of a boost.
So, if you enjoy natural products free from nasties and exploring new brands then head over to Boots now to take a look at this trio long with the rest of the collection.
