Product Review - Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner

I plan on doing more product reviews on here
I've used a handful of things and haven't reviewed them!
so with that said, here is a review on the 
Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner

$9.99 (average price)

Deionized Water , Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) , Argan Oil , Coconut Oil , Behentrimonium Chloride , Essential Oil Blend , Vegetable Glycerin , Emulsifying Wax , Sea Kelp Extract , Panthenol (Vitamin B-5) , Avocado Oil , Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower (and) Lonicera Japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) , Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil 

Our leave-in or rinse out conditioner detangles, moisturizes, repairs and restores lifeless, damaged hair.
Work conditioner through hair from root to ends. Leave on for 3 minutes, then rinse. 
For deeper conditioning, leave on for up to 15 minutes. As a leave-in, work a dime-sized amount through damp hair, then style as desired.

I've used this product quite a lot.  I have used it as a co-wash, rinse out, deep conditioner and leave in.

Co-Wash- on wet hair, this glides on perfectly. It moisturized my scalp and hair and rinsed clean. My hair felt lightly cleansed and moisturized at the same time. I could do a slight finger detangle with it but nothing much.

Rinse Out - I do love it as a rinse out. I love when a conditioner deeply moisturizes my hair and it feels soft and supple after rinsing which this does. The downside is not much slip and the size of the product. I would go through a bottle really quickly if I used it for this nature and $10 for a product is a lot. Especially since it's even more in the UK!

Deep Conditioner - the product is thick and creamy in nature and works great on its own as a deep conditioner or if you add some oils to it. With my hair under plastic bags for at least 30 mins, the product penetrated my strands and left them smooth. I even detangled my hair with a paddle brush before placing under the plastic bags and the brush glided through with no trouble! (I did detangle my hair prior to shampooing hair)

Leave-In - this is the way I mostly use the product. It is a staple in my product stash, especially for the Fall/Winter seasons. Again, the creaminess of it and the thickness is great for when my hair needs extra moisture in the cold climates and it delivers. My hair is always soft and left smelling really good.

This is a product that has and will always be a staple in my product stash because I can get multiple uses out of it. For the size and price, it is more economical for me to use as a leave-in and the occasional deep conditioner or co-wash. I love that is readily available in the US, hate that it isn't readily available in the UK and twice the price.

Have you tried this product? What are your thoughts?


  1. This review was very helpful! I haven't tried this product yet, but I've recently found a black hair shop in London that stocks a few Shea Moisture products, so I may try it. I've tried their African Black Soap conditioner and it was really moisturising, I think Shea Moisture have a secret technique when it comes to conditioners lol.

  2. I've been wanting to try the black soap conditioner for ages! It's waiting on me in Florida.. my sister is taking a bit long in shipping me my stuff lol

    I think they have a secret technique with most of their products lol. Let me know how it goes when you try it :)
