Shea Moisture: Moisture Retention Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner REVIEW

Hey everyone!

I have been super busy trying to get my line together and everything BUT here's a review I'm finally ready to share with you all.

It's on the Shea Moisture Line's Organic Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo & Organic Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner.

I bought these at my local Target for $9.99 each.

They're both 12oz.
The conditioner has a pump but the shampoo doesn't, it's just a cap that pops up when you push down.

My hair is naturally curly, it's dry and I've dyed it so many times and use hot tools on it, so it's damaged. Isn't as bad as it used to be but it's bad.
I wanted something natural that was sulfate free and had no bad chemicals that could damage my hair even more. I want to reconstruct my hair so it's beautiful and shiny and soft. I didn't just want to mask it for a day.

With normal shampoos and conditioners, ya you clean your hair and it smells good, but it's temporary. The ingredients in it pretty much wash off anyways, you don't retain the moisture.

I've used deep conditioners, moisturizing shampoos, stuff for damaged hair, etc. Nothing really helped, besides haircuts.

Since I'm trying to grow my hair out to how long it used to be, I don't want to have to get haircuts to get the hair I want.

I picked up this line and was BLOWN AWAY!

I admit, at first I wasn't too big on it.

Here's the thing. I started with the shampoo, only put a dime size in my hand and it didn't feel like I put anything in my hair, so I poured more, and more. It didn't sud for me, which I'm so used to from other shampoos. So I just finished working it into my hair, rinsed and started on the conditioner. This wasn't super soft feeling either, it felt like just my hair. I left it in a few minutes and rinsed out. Nothing. So I felt disappointed the first time, especially since this was the most expensive shampoo and conditioner I'd ever bought.

Once my hair was dry it felt soft though.

Then I kept using it, I've been using it a few weeks now and my hair is transformed.
I still have split ends from previous damage, but only haircuts can help with that.
But my hair is soft, shiny, smoother and just much more manageable.

I'm really loving this set and I will definitely be repurchasing.
I'm so glad I found a shampoo & conditioner that are natural, organic, cruelty free and have no harsh chemicals. Plus it smells pretty good:]

Oh & the conditioner can also be used as a leave in! Awesome!
