So, I had an opportunity to try Shea Moisture’s Moisture Retention Shampoo for the first time and it was great!
As I mentioned in my latest haul video/post
, I had not shampooed my hair in 5 years!
It was due to my discomfort with the ingredients listed on most shampoo products and greatly due to my scalp itching like I had fleas whenever I did shampoo. I cannot say that shampooing will become a regular practice for me, but I will try again in the future since it was faster than having to make my clay wash. And after almost a week I have had zero itchiness. I shot a video detailing my conditioning process if you’d like to take a peek here.
Also, in the video
I share my recipe for my homemade deep conditioner:
1/2 Ripe Banana
2.5 Tbsp of Coconut Oil.
I slept with the conditioner over night and rinsed it out in the morning. I did not apply any additional product until I styled the following day, yet it felt super, sponge cake moist and soft!
For styling, I shot a video that I will share soon, but I used Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Eco Styler Gel to set my waves. I had a chance to use that bonnet
I mentioned a few posts back as well! I LOOOOOOVE IT!
Hope you like!
Let me know if you decide to try the deep conditioning recipe!
Had to make a quick run to Walgreens during my recent trip to Las Vegas and, of course, you can’t shop at a place like that and buy just one item. I ended up buying 5! I thought it would be fun to share them with you in the attached video. Lately, I’ve been interested in experimenting with my hair and decided to buy and try out the Shea Moisture shampoo. I have not shampooed my hair in 5 years, only clay washes, so I’m looking to share that update with y’all too! I will be posting photos and info for what steps I took for my trial run with shampoo, wish me luck.
