I really wanted to try some Shea Moisture products so Maria Tumolo of The Tiger Tales kindly sent me a shampoo and conditioner to try. She wrote about the launch of Shea Moisture in Boots on her blog.
I tried the Superfruit 10-in-1 Multi-Benefit Shampoo with Marula oil and Biotin which is aimed at all hair types and the Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner with sea kelp and argan oil.
The shampoo highlights the following qualities: age-defying (no idea what that means!), colour protecting, sulphate free, hydrating, nourishing, softening, anti-stress, manageability, body reviving and no build up. When using this I work it into a lather, rinse and repeat. It has a light consistency which left my hair feeling clean and soft which is surprising for a shampoo. It has a gentle scent which is fruity and fun!
The conditioner is aimed at damaged and transitioning hair (when hair is going from being chemically treated to natural) and claims to moisturise and fortify and is sulphate free and colour-safe. I thought this would be too heavy for my fine hair but it turned out to be ok. It can be used as a leave-in conditioner or a rinse-out which is great because it love multi-taskers! I left the conditioner to work for 3-5 minutes under a shower cap and rinsed out but on occasion I did put a little back in on the ends of my hair as a moisturiser. There is 379ml in the bottle so there is plenty of product for me to do that. It has a lovely light scent and a rich formula.
Overall, I liked how my hair felt and looked after using these Shea Moisture products so I am likely to buy from the brand again. It’s difficult to choose which range though! Perhaps the Shea Butter for winter when I blow dry my hair and the Superfruit Complex for summer when I don’t use any heat. There are other ranges within the brand which I also might try.
