PRODUCT REVIEW : SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

Hi guys,                                                            
It's been ages since I've done a product review right? Sorry about that. I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.



Meet the product:
   


Product claims:
 This reparative leave-in conditioner softens and detangles hair while controlling frizz. Perfect for  those who regularly colour, straighten, perm or heat style their hair, as well as kinky, curly or wavy natural styles. Formulated with nutrient-rich Jamaican Black Castor Oil and certified organic Shea Butter to nourish, moisturize and support elasticity so hair resists breakage when detangling. Conditioners provide a protective layer that improves the appearance of split ends. Peppermint oil stimulates the scalp for an invigorating experience. 
Ingredients:
 Water (Aqua),  Ricinus Communis (castor) seed oil, Stearyl Alchohol, Cetyl Alchohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil,    Panthenol, Dicaprylyl Ether Hydroxyethylcellulose,  Glycerin (Vegetable), Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Fragrance (Essential Oil Blend), Caramel, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract, Mauritia Flexuosa Fruit Oil, Tocopherol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice*, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol, Trifolium Pratense (Clover) Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, Vinegar, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3, Niacin, Dextran, Caprylhydroxamic Acid, Caprylyl Glycol, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil.

 Directions:
 Apply to clean, towel-dried hair. Work a generous amount of product into hair from root to ends. Gently comb through for even distribution. Do not rinse. Apply additional product as needed depending on hair length and condition.

How I used product:
I used this product on dry hair, on damp hair and in the Kimmaytube leave-in mix.
 Here's my verdict:

The good:
  •  No sulfates. No parabens. No phthalates. No paraffin. No gluten. No propylene glycol. No mineral oil. No synthetic fragrance. No PABA. No synthetic colour. No DEA. No animal testing.
  • It is just the perfect consistency for my hair. Not super thick and  not too runny.
  • It sinks into my strands immediately. No white patches at all. 
  • It leaves my hair moisturised for up to 3 days with proper sealing. 
  • It look , smells and feels like melted Vanilla ice-cream. Love it!
  • A little goes a long way.
The bad:
I wish it came in a different package. A bottle with a pump perhaps? I feel that a product with its light consistency should not be in a jar. I had 2 major spills when someone jarred my hands and I was really upset because it's kinda expensive.  

The Ugly:
 Nothing!

DarkChild rating : 8.5/10

Price: N3600

It wasn't easy moving on from Cantu but my hair had had enough of the white patches. I'm glad I bought this leave-in. I love the smell and the way it makes my hair feel- soft and moisturised. I would definitely repurchase it.
Thanks for stopping by :-)

  1. I find shea moisture a bit drying unless i seal with castor oil...so maybe this is actually a good product. Will check it out when next I am stocking up.

  6. Funny I have double mind concerning this product. It didn't do much for my usual 2 days moisture and I needed to reapply morning and evening or else my hair felt dry. I noticed though that twistouts with the product was light and fluffy so that's what prevented me from chucking it out...that and the smell but I didn't repurchase after that.

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,
  Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing:

Use the right tool
 Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.





Comb your hair only when it is damp
 Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be. When your hair is damp it can better withstand the force of…

How to create a a sleek faux bun with short natural hair!!!!

Hi people!
   So its been a while since my last post and I apologize. I have been all kinds of busy but I have got something really cool for you all today. I haven't really done any hairstyle posts on this blog  because in my bid to retain length I just cornrow and throw on a wig. I have been doing that for months with the random Afro-puff thrown in once in awhile but this week I just wasn't  in the mood for any of my wigs. I decided to finally do something I have been dying to do: a faux bun!! Its super easy just follow the steps below and you'll be rocking your faux bun in a couple of minutes :-)

                           Preparing my hair

I stretched my hair with my cornrows first. I took out the braids then moisturised and sealed:

 I sectioned my hair into 2 parts. I started from the front section. I added some Ecostyler gel, brushed it lightly with a toothbrush and pulled it into a bun on the top of my head:

 After I was done with the front, I brushed up the back and…
