SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner
Jun 10, 2013 - If you're looking for a conditioner to help detangle your hair (read: SLIP), then this is not the one for you. If you're looking for a conditioner with nice girlish smell, this ain't it either. For that I deduct a full curl because this stuff really isn't perfect as "conditioner", because with the word "conditioner" comes a lot of expectations. Nevertheless, I keep repurchasing this stuff because it is so super duper moisturizing. I throw it in my deep treats as a base, I can use it as a leave in when my hair is dry, and I mix it with a slipper rinse out (say Tresemme Naturals or Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle) when I'm washing my hair, I let it sit a good five minutes to penetrate, then I detangle with the aid of slippier conditioners and I'm all right. I have coarse hair so it needs extra moisture and emollients and this stuff does the job. it doesn't really have a smell. It's sort of plain. But I don't mind. I don't even really mind the (and I'm being honest) utterly DIRE lack of slip because I have other products that provide it. And oh my God if you mix this conditioner with honey and olive oil, it is like your hair is having a bath in moisture. Also, like all Shea Moisture products, I don't have to worry about chemicals or nasty preservatives poisoning my body and polluting the environment.
