Product Review: Shea Moisture Organic Anti-Breakage Hair Masque

Hi Beauties! 

This weekend, I experimented with a few new products from Shea Moisture collection. One of them being this Shea Moisture Organic Anti-Breakage Hair Masque Yucca & Baobab that I received when I went to the Shecky’s Girls Night Out event last Thursday. I used the masque as a pre-poo as the Shea Moisture representative suggested. 

Product Description: 

This all natural intense treatment masque with biotin & bamboo
extract is for thin, fine hair. It penetrates to moisturize and repair
over-processed, dry, brittle or damaged hair. It thickens, volumizes
& softens.

I loved the texture of the product. It was creamy and smooth like a deep conditioner. I felt like it penetrated into my dry hair instantly. I applied it to my hair in sections similar to how I would apply a deep conditioner. I then covered my hair with a shower cap for about 15 minutes. 

I was very happy with the results of using this hair masque as a pre-poo. After 15 minutes of allowing the product to sit in my hair, I rinsed it out with warm water. I then shampooed with Shea Moisture Organic Curl & Style Hair Milk Coconut & Hibiscus (review coming soon). After shampooing I used my go-to Macadamia Deep Conditioning Masque. After my wash I flat twisted my hair with the magical Nairobi wrapping lotion (my absolute favorite).

Here were the results after rocking my twist out all weekend:

Great weekend for hair & friends! I highly recommend trying this Anti-Breakage Hair Masque as a pre-poo! Worked magic and I loved the results. I kept hearing all weekend “what did you do different to your hair? It looks great!”

    @Louida M Please do and let me know how it works for you!

    @alcINFO290AC It was my pleasure to post! I'm glad you found this helpful. I did not detangle my hair with the product in. I simply applied it and let it sit with no manipulation. I detangled with my regular deep conditioner.

    I use this product in replace of Carol's Daughter's Moni hair mask.
    It works well with the Moni shampoo and conditioner.

    I will try pre pooing with it.

    Hey, I just bought this and haven't used it yet. I'm planning to use it after I shampoo though, because I have relaxed hair which tends to go dry after shampooing. I love how your hair looks, you're very beautiful! Thanks for the review 🙂
