Shea Moisture has done it Again!

My love affair with Shea Moisture began in February of 2011. (click here) Each new item in the line would  bring a new experience for my strands that caressed and protected them.  I still was missing one thing... my holy grail... my must have staple.... a Leave-in Conditioner! Yes, they offered products that could be used as a leave-in but they did not have a dedicated one. But now they do... The Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil leave-in per their website its: A reparative leave-in conditioner that softens and detangles hair. Nourishes, moisturizes and supports 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.

I was extremely excited to give it a try.... My expectations were high, I am very picky and ... No DISAPPOINTMENT HERE!!! The scent was pleasant, the consistency was thin but not watery and the penetration was immediate. The weather was unseasonably cold and the leave-in kept my hair moisturized through all the winds and chills. I used it on wet hair styling as well as dry and the results where the same... Amazing! I have been a fan of the Cantu leave-in forever  which is thicker than this one but I believe this one gave me at least one additional day of moisture. Detangling my hair was a breeze and having the additional benefits of Jamaican Black Castor oil is a huge bonus. I will continue to give the Shea Moisture a try in the coming months to see how it handles the summer weather. So for now I am going to give it a 9.5 out of 10 but say the jury is still out ... We will see this summer if it will become my number one.

A 9.5 is very high for me so I must share this leave-in with you! Enter my giveaway below (via the rafflecopter) to try it for yourself.
