I was sent some samples of Shea Moisture products for this review. No other compensation was received. All opinions below are my own.
I’ve been on my natural hair journey for almost 3 years. What I’ve realized more recently is that the reason I wasn’t getting the growth I wanted was because of one thing: over manipulation. Instead of protective styling, I’d change my hair every other day.. Or just apply heat. As most people know, that isn’t great for my 4B hair.
My goal the last couple of months was to work on keeping my hair healthy and manipulate it less. Thankfully, Shea Moisture has released the 10-in-1 renewal system.
The collection boasts a proprietary blend of certified organic Shea Butter (with rich fatty acids to deeply moisturize); SuperFruit Nutrient Complex (a blend of Red Raspberry, Ketones, Goji, Acai Guava extracts rich in anti-aging antioxidants); Marula Oil (contains natural peptides that help support hair’s elasticity); and Biotin (nurtures individual strands for thicker, stronger hair). When the whole system is used together, hair is instantly renewed, hydrated, soft, shiny and manageable.
I received the hair & scalp serum, shampoo and the renewal hair masque. I started with the hair & scalp serum as a pre-wash to revitalize my hair. I liked it.. and it smells great. I let it sit for a little while before starting to wash my hair. I rarely use shampoo mainly because of how my hair reacts to it. Its probably because I haven’t found a shampoo that works. For the first time, I experienced a shampoo cleansing my hair without drying it out. When I finished shampooing, my hair felt clean and that’s it. No drying and not tangling. The superfruit renewal system shampoo also smelled great as well. I love it.
I used my own conditioner and moved on to the renewal hair masque. This treatment happens to be an intensive, antioxidant-rich treatment that repairs hair in minutes. It is recommended to leave in for between 5-30 mins depending on your damage. Since this is the first time I’ve used something like this, I left it on for a while to make sure it did its job. When I rinsed it, I noticed a difference in my hair. It make it easier to style, but wait til you see how my hair came out!
