in-depth review: Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque

After using this product once a week since I bought it late May, I can now share you my in-depth review on this hair mask. I bought this in Target for $9.99. It was pretty cheap I thought for the 12oz of mask you get, comparing it to my favorite Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque (MNO) that costs twice that or more! If this will meet my high expectancy hair needs, then I am ready to put my MNO aside and use this. 
Trying to keep my hair long is a lot of maintenance and I am literally overwhelmed with so many hair products out there! But I want to keep it simple and stick to the simple ingredient products such as this.

Let me tell you a bit about my hair before I purchased this to understand my review on this mask.
  • I have below-the-shoulder length medium thick layered hair.
  • It's non-color treated hair for 3-4 yrs now. I just want a low maintenance hair so I've stayed away from coloring it.
  • I have minor split ends since my last haircut in March (I hate going to the hair salon!).
  • My ends aren't super dry or damaged, just a little bit because I need a trim. 
  • My scalp is actually pretty dry and itchy. I was hoping this would help give me a healthier scalp, which is the most important thing on my hair needs.
  • I do have breakage since I always have my hair on a bun or pony. Yes even with those no-dent hair ties. So strengthening my hair is another goal of mine.
  • I do have fall out in the shower, but I look at that as normal for me since I have a lot of hair! *Am I wrong?!

Now onto the product!
This has a very thick, paste-like consistency. Only a palm-ful is needed for my long hair, and looking at the jar now, it looks like I didn't even made a dent on it. It still looks pretty full, so this will definitely last me for the rest of the year.
What sold me to this are the three most important ingredients and what it will do to my hair!
  • Shea Butter: Deeply moisturizes while conditioning hair and scalp. Bingo! Scalp treatment !
  • Argan Oil: Restores shine while helping promote hair elasticity. Another ace here for strengthening hair!
  • Sea Kelp: Mineral-rich nutrition seals and smoothes hair cuticles. For my stubborn split ends and damaged ends - sold!

If you guys are pretty conscious or sensitive of what's in your hair products this has a list of chemicals that are NOT in it! How awesome is that?!? This was such an awesome bonus!

My Thoughts On It:

  • My hair felt soft and smooth afterwards. I usually air dry my hair, and it wasn't frizzy as usual.
  • My dry scalp improved! Using this and my Clear Scalp Therapy Shampoo & Conditioner, my hair never looked so healthy! I actually have not used this for two weeks, and I see my dry scalp has gone back, so I think this had something to do with keeping my scalp healthy!
  • My hair do feel thicker, but I still am having fall outs and breakage here and there. 
  • I don't see any split ends, yay! Nor dry ends! 
All in all, it has met my hair needs and will be a staple in my shower! I have noticed my hair has been growing a lot lately too, I am not sure if it has something to do with massaging my scalp, which I read somewhere helps, and I am all for that!
Besides my hair begging for a trim and fall out on days I don't brush as often as I usually do and breakage on days I have my hair on a pony all day, this mask has helped to keep my hair and scalp healthy!
I do recommend this product highly (1) because it's cheap! Cheaper than the Macadamia hair masks brands. (2) It's an all-natural product which is what your hair really needs! and finally (3) it's a mask that also treats your scalp. Starting with a healthy scalp will result to healthier locks! And if you are like me who's trying to grow it long, hair products that will keep your hair healthy from roots to ends is what you want!
