Today Was a Good (Hair) Day

Two days ago, I decided to try the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque. It’d been sitting in the bathroom cabinet for about a week and not because I was reluctant to try it (I’d been hearing rave reviews). I was just a little skeptical but I was very curious so I just wanted to take time to read the label and smell it and think of HOW I was going to use it. Well, I know it’s not rocket science, but I just didn’t want to be disappointed.
After my Miss Jessie’s debacle (a post for another day–coming soon), I expected the same results from the Deep Treatment Masque. I must say that I was pleasently surprised with this product.

deionized water, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), argan oil, cetyl esters, sea kelp extract, panthenol (vitamin b-5), ammonium salt, essential oil blend, avocado oil, lonicera caprifolium (honeysuckle) flower and lonicera japonica (japanese honeysuckle) flower extract, tocopherol (vitamin e), hyssopus officinalis extract, salvia officinalis (sage) leaf and equisetum arvense extract, soybean oil, daucus carota sativa (carrot) seed oil.

How I Used It:

Two days ago, I decided to try the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque. It’d been sitting in the bathroom cabinet for about a week and not because I was reluctant to try it (I’d been hearing rave reviews). I was just a little skeptical but I was very curious so I just wanted to take time to read the label and smell it and think of HOW I was going to use it. Well, I know it’s not rocket science, but I just didn’t want to be disappointed.
After my Miss Jessie’s debacle (a post for another day–coming soon), I expected the same results from the Deep Treatment Masque. I must say that I was pleasently surprised with this product.
After washing and conditioning my hair, I applied an generous amount of the Masque to soaking wet hair, put on my plastic cap and sat under my hooded dryer for 30 minutes. Then, I dunked my head in a basin of cold water repeating until the water was clear.
Can we say the curls were POPPING?!?! Yes, we can! My hair was SO soft and so moisturized. In my mind, I was thinking, WOW! I can NOT believe this. I then proceeded in twisting my hair into large twists (I ended up with five in all) so I would be able to sort of have my natural curls in a stretched state once dried. The next day, I untwisted my hair and my curls were still popping and ultra soft!
Since this can eithe rbe left in or rinsed out, I decided that evening to do a flat twist out on dry hair applying a little of the Deep Treatment Masque as I twisted. I made my parts crooked all over so that it’d be easy to hide them when fluffing time came. It didn’t leave any residue or film on my hair when I did my dry flat twists or anything. I really liked this product. (pics at the bottom)
As for the scent: the intial smell is great, it’s a warm, rich smell BUT then there is what I’ve been calling an “after smell”. I can describe it as sort of like a finishing note when tasting wine. That very tail-end smell of the Masque, I didn’t really care for. It wasn’t bad or anything just kind of a strong finish for something that smells so delectable and light in the beginning.
Price & Rating:
I bought the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque for 10 dollars at Target and it’s well worth the money. I will continue to use it and experiment with it and then I’ll let you all know if it’s become a staple product or not. I’m completely satisfied with how it make my hair look and feel.

4.0 stars out of 5

I did two rows of the twists in the back isntead of going straight down
