Product Review: Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Treatment Masque



Promises 
This deep conditioning masque restores strength and resilience to damaged, brittle or chemically processed hair. Perfect for those who regularly color, straighten, perm or heat style their hair, as well as kinky, curly or wavy natural styles. Helps promote growth by supporting hair's elasticity, reducing the appearance of breakage and shredding. Peppermint oil stimulates the scalp for an invigorating experience. Leaves hair soft, manageable and shiny.

Directions
After shampooing, apply a generous amount of the strengthening masque from root to ends. Pay particular attention to hair ends. Comb through for even distribution. Place a plastic cap over hair and sit under a warm dryer for 10-15 minutes. May be left on hair for up to an hour without heat. Rinse thoroughly. Style as usual.

Verdict
This treatment masque is Amazing! If you're looking for a deep conditioner, this might just be your holy grail. Since the start of my hair journey, I have tried a variety of deep conditioners. I can firmly say this has to be my favourite. I have used both with and without a hooded dryer and have gotten good results with both methods. This deep conditioner leaves my hair so soft after 15 minutes with the dryer and about 30 minutes without... No need to spend forever and a day deep conditioning. Not only does my hair feel soft after I rinse the conditioner but also after it dries, which is the most important part. As with all the products I've used from the Shea Moisture line, I cannot fault the ingredients. The masque is brown (assuming from the jamaican black castor oil), with a thick consistency. It glides through damp hair well, allowing for quick application. Alike my previous review on the SM Curl & Shine Conditioner, a little does not go a long way. I can get approximately 8 uses out of the container at most, of course this will vary from person to person based on the length and density of their hair. One thing I don't like about the Shea Moisture JBCO line is the scent  smell. It smells like fisher price play dough, I do not find it appealing but it is definitely bearable. I do however have a friend who thinks this range smells divine so the 'fragrance' may not affect you. Either way, the 'scent' does not linger. I purchased the masque for £9.99 for 12oz from a hair shop in Peckham, opposite the cinema... for my local readers. On Amazon you can purchase it for £11 including P&P. Would I use the masque again? Most definitely.

Have you tried this product or any others from the Shea Moisture line?
