Jessicurl Too Shea! Extra Moisturizing Conditioner
Jan 31, 2010 - I have fine, wavy hair, but lots of it. It is not naturally dry at all, and my scalp tends to be more toward the oily side. Too Shea simply didn't do anything good for me at all. It has no deeper moisturizing abilities, and it ended up coating the hair shaft each time I used it and built up badly. Since I use shampoo only about every 3 or 4 days and the other days I do the no-poo method, the days that I didn't use shampoo the Too Shea would just keep building up on top of the previous day's application, and the shampoo didn't clean it away on days I shampooed. I actually had to use either an apple cider vinegar rinse or baking soda each time I wanted to get all the Too Shea cleaned off. Frustrating! This product caused my hair to just look blah without good curl formation at all. Did not have the ability to deeply moisturize, either (I tried it also as a weekly deep conditioner, and my hair felt no different than if I had just briefly conditioned with it after shampooing. I couldn't wait to use this product up and have it gone and finished so I could move to something better and definitely more moisturizing! Avalon Organics Olive & Grape Seed Moisturizing Conditioner, Fragrance Free, is just what my hair needs for excellent lighter daily conditioning without being greasy or weighing it down! By the way, I've used all the Jessicurl products in the unscented versions, and even though each has its own very light natural smell from the ingredients in it, I do appreciate the opportunity to be able to purchase products without strong scent!
