Product reviews on shampoos tend to be a little dry BUT this one is a little different. The Superfruit Complex that this new SheaMoisture product line boasts is very non traditional (especially the Marula Oil) and feeds hair far more nutrients than the average shampoo. Overall, this shampoo smells amazing, has slip for finger detangling (yea, you read that right) and is super cleansing! It should be “super” all those things since it’s called “Superfruit” right? Ha. I purchased this shampoo at ULTA for $10.99 for 13 fl oz.
This product boasts about it’s “Superfruit Complex.” The packaging describes this complex as “a blend of Red Raspberry, Ketaones, Goji, Acai, and Guava Extracts.”
This product also contains Marula Oil. What is Marula oil you wonder? Marula Oil is derived from fruit seed kernels that are indigenous to Southern Africa and Madagascar. In short, this oil ” contains powerful antioxidants, high concentrations of nutrients, minerals and essential fatty acids that protect against environmental aggressors, reverse photodamage, boost cellular activity, hydrate at the deepest levels and repair the skin.” Boost cellular activity? Perfect for hair growth. Protect against environmental aggressors? Perfect for those of us who are struggling with the DC heat and humidity this summer.

Lastly, the packaging talks about Biotin which “nourishes individual strands for thicker, stronger hair.” We alll know about the thickening, growing effects of Biotin. BUt, if for some reason, you’ve been living under a rock, let this article enlighten you on Biotin’s wondrous effects!
HOW I USE IT
This shampoo is meant to be used after the SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex Hair & Scalp Serum. I did just that and then lathered this shampoo on. I LOVE that it is SUPER cleansing, smells great (fruity!) and that you can actually finger detangle your hair while shampooing (which IS rare)! It ranks average in the moisturizing department (unlike the SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo) but, overall, especially with the amazing ingredients–it’s a winner.
