SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hair Masque

Standard

Love love loveee this masque! This is the type of conditioner that will have you rinsing out your hair way longer than you need to solely because your hair is still SO soft (like it was when you were applying the conditioner to your hair) that you still think it’s IN your hair long after it’s been rinsed away. Needless to say, I love this masque! It left my hair super soft, detangled and moisturized! Everything about this masque screams perfection for transitioners and naturals! A definite new staple for me. I purchased it from Target for $11 for 12 oz.

INGREDIENTS

Manuka Honey contains anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the scalp. Helps create a moisturizing barrier.

water, cetyl alcohol, coconut oil, behentrimonium methosulfate, shea butter, vegetable glycerin, stearyl alcohol, behentrimonium chloride, panthenol, mafura seed oil, honey, hydrolyzed rice protein, fragrance (essential oil blend), baobab seed oil, cetrimonium chloride, avocado oil, fig extract, mango seed butter, tocopherol, aloe leaf extract, caprylhydroxamic acid, caprylyl glycol, butylene glycol

HOW I USE IT

After a thorough shampoo and condition, I part my damp hair into four sections. I then apply this masque to each section of my hair, adding a small amount of coconut oil to my ends, and using a wide tooth comb to ensure equal distribution. After I’ve applied the masque to all four sections of my hair, I put my hair into two top knots, put two plastic caps on (I need two to cover all my hair lol) and sit under my bonnet dryer for 30 minutes. Rinse and fall in love with my super soft hair over and over!

Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Hair Masque

Standard

Once I tried Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner, I thought I had found my ideal deep conditioner. Then, I tried Miss Jessie’s Rapid Recovery Treatment and thought that I had found two of the best deep conditioners EVER. Until, I ran across this hair masque. Don’t get me wrong I still love those two deep conditioners, but this masque is also amazing! Last week my hair (especially my ends) were feeling extremely brittle and dry from a mixture of the humidity and heat. Not wanting to let my hair succumb to breakage, I searched through my product stash for a solution. On a whim, I decided to try this masque, as I had received it from a product swap and still hadn’t tried it. It. is. amazing. It has a combination of keratin, coconut oil and olive oil which hydrate hair while strengthening it all at once. It is now one of my go to deep conditioners when my hair is dry, when is starting to break AND right before I’m about to straighten my hair WHICH I won’t be able to do often now that I’m transitioning. This masque truly delivers hydration to the hair without being too heavy on hair. It’s a perfect lifesaver for hair that is dry and damaged. Like I said, I got this from a product swap but it can be purchased at Walmart for $10 for 11 oz. It’s super thick so you can probably get about 4-5 uses out of it depending on hair length.

HOW I USE IT

After a shampoo and conditioner, I apply this masque to my damp hair. First, I section my hair into four different sections. Then, within each section I apply this masque, detangling with a wide tooth comb to ensure equal distribution. I put on a plastic cap and sit underneath my bonnet dryer for 20 minutes. Rinse and try to keep my hands out of my super soft hair!
