So today I wanted to share a few hair care products that I have been *slightly* #fangirling over lately.
I have a serious obsession with Shea Moisture products all of sorts! Its bad. I am a total product junkie and I have no shame admitting that, whatsoever! Their products are all natural and organic ingredients which is something that I have been wanting to slowly convert all of my products over to. So considering I typically need a lot of products to help tame my crazy, curly hair I figured that was a good place to start.
I am a die hard fan of their Coconut and Hibiscus hair product line. Now, obviously I have very curly hair and a lot of it, but it is actually it ranges from fine to medium in thickness. This line is specifically for thick, curly hair but I have found that it works wonders on mine. It isn’t very heavy but it keeps it moisturized, and it smells AHH-MAZING! You can usually count on me grabbing the Curl & Style Milk, Hold & Shine Moisture Mist, and the Frizz – Free Curl Mousse. The Frizz – Free Curl Mousse gives me a little extra definition on my curls while also making them super shiny, and the Hold & Shine Moisture Mist is my go-to for my second and third day hair to revamp my curls and add a little extra shine.
I also enjoy their Protein Free Leave-In Detangler from their Baobab and Tea Tree Oils Low Porosity line. Now for those who don’t know, porosity refers to how much or how little your hair absorbs moisture. Low porosity means that your hair typically repels moisture while high porosity means that it easily escapes (this is an extremely toned down version of the in’s and out’s of hair porosity – for a more in-depth explanation, this website does a great job of breaking it down: http://www.naturallycurly.com/texture-typing/hair-porosity). Now, I can’t even lie to you guys and say that my hair is low porosity, because, in all honesty, I have no clue what porosity my hair is! Don’t judge me. However, I do know that this stuff works miracles on my hair like Jesus does in our lives! Although I did learn that a little goes a long way. The oils are in this product are very moisturizing and it is easy to deceive yourself into thinking that you need a lot of product. TRUST ME: YOU DON’T.
I recently picked up their Tahitian Noni & Moni Smooth & Repair Shampoo and Condition. These products have a really nice, soft scent and they are formulated to help smooth uneven textures and control frizz. One of the things that I really love about these products is how the shampoo doesn’t make my hair feel rough and stringy after washing. Normally shampoo strips my hair of everything and it leaves it feeling as if I had straw for hair. But I have noticed that this shampoo leaves it feeling soft and conditioned. The conditioner itself has great slip and really helps to keep it from getting tangled so easily. Now I have only had these products for about 2 weeks, and I usually, only, fully wash my hair once a week, and I rinse it about mid-week to re-style. So I haven’t noticed a huge reduction in the amount of frizz overall; but I have noticed that it is much more manageable when I style it after washing.
These are just a few of the products that I have been using recently, but I would love to hear what SheaMoisture products you have been loving! Are there any other brands that you would recommend? While my bank account might not like the suggestions, I would love them so leave a comment below!
Until next time sunshines! Stay bright 🙂
