Shea Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner

Shea Mositure

SheaMoisture is a brand I have never heard of before, I picked it up in the US as a freebie but you can get some SheaMoisture products from Boots I wanted to share with you my thoughts on the shampoo and conditioner from the Fruit Fusion range.

I always feel that it's so hard finding a good shampoo and conditioner for fine hair, because most products really cling to my hair weighing it down and just making it look super flat. Another thing that doesn't help my hair is that I was it too frequently which means I strip the natural oils from it making it very greasy even after one day, I can't bear to have dirty looking hair. The first thing I noticed about the SheaMoisture shampoo and conditioner was that it's for fine, wavy curly that's 3 different types of hair all needing different types of products, curly hair tends to be drier a needs deep conditioning, I would never be able to use the same products on my fine hair. This said, I was still super excited to give it a go. 

The thing that I really love about these SheaMoisture products is that they are so conscious to the planet, I mean look at the list of things these products don't have, no added nasties that we have just become used to having in all of our hair and skin products. Not only this, on the side of the bottles it's proudly listed that it's a family owned and operated company, that the ingredients that are used are fairtrade and sustainably sourced and points out again that they are cruelty free, I mean this company is seriously talking to the millennial in me, like who wouldn't want to try this out?

I was obsessed with the scent, because though it has coconut water in it and you know I bloody hate coconut scents, you really can't tell it. There are subtle undertones but the fruity and vibrant scent wins and I love it. 
I actually wash my hair backwards with conditioner first and then shampoo and with my conditioner I only put it on the ends, never on the scalp because it would never wash out of my hair, I learned this mistake long ago

When I first used it my hair looked and smelled incredible only after one use, I was so happy and telling people about it. However my excitement didn't last long. Every time since I have washed my hair which is probably about 20 times now my hair feels awful, the product doesn't properly wash out of my hair an leaves it looking so greasy. When I try to use less, it doesn't actually wash my hair so whilst I don't have any product left in it, it hasn't cleaned my hair properly so when I dry it, it still looks a bit dull and dirty. I just think that the shampoo doesn't work well with my hair and it's so disappointing. 

Moving onto the conditioner though, this is the real winner here, it is super thick and super creamy, it feels luxurious. This conditioner I can so get on board with and doesn't stay in my hair at all  it washes out perfectly and definitely leaves my ends feeling smooth. The scent is exactly the same as the shampoo and I love using it in the morning I just wish the shampoo worked with my hair. I would totally try more from this SheaMoisture as they have such a lovely history behind the brand. 

Have you used any SheaMoisture products before?


  1. Oh no. This sounded like such a great shampoo until I read your experience with it. I have really straight hair as is & any shampoo I use just weighs it down more. So sad to read that this won´t be my solution either. I´m very thankful for your review though!
