This masque from SheaMoisture is a winner for me!! Sometimes, SheaMoisture masques can be hit or miss (like the Raw Shea Butter masque) this one, however, has lots of slip, smells great, amazing ingredients AND it really delivered moisture to my hair!! My hair was super easy to detangle while using this aaaand when I rinsed it alll out, my hair was super soft! Winner! I purchased this masque from ULTA for $12.99 for 12 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?

HOW I USE IT
Just the instructions state, I section my hair into four sections. Apply the masque to each section. Use a wide tooth comb to detangle each section and then put all my hair into a top knot and put a plastic cap over it. Sit under my bonnet dryer for 30 minutes and rinse!
