Product Review: Shea Moisture's Deep Treatment Masque

It's always a sad day when you buy a hair product that you imagine will be amazing... and it isn't!

I purchased the Shea Moisture's Deep Treatment Masque from Target (for about 10 bucks) because, like I told you before, I have been going through a hair crisis. Not only do I have dry skin, I have dry hair too. My hair seems to drink moisture so I am constantly searching for moisturizing treatments to aid in my hair care process.

I picked this product up because it had raw Shea butter, sea kelp, argan oil, no sulfates and no parabens. When I opened up the bottle it had a nice smell, it had a beautiful, light- almost mouse-y- texture, and mixed nicely with my organic cocunut oil.
Sounds great right? NOT!

After applying the product and leaving it in for 30 minutes, I washed it out of my hair and was so confused. My hair felt like straw... like literal straw. I had to take my time combing my wet hair because it was beyond anything i'd ever felt before. Although this product made my hair feel awful, there wasn't a lot of damage/breakage to my hair. Luckily, once I put my leave in conditioner/hair serum and blew it straight, my hair felt just fine.

I suspect that this might be a better product for African-American girls who are who are natural (for curly styles) but for me, this was a DEFINITE no-NO!



  1. aw man, that is disappointing! :(

  2. Sorry to hear that this product did not work for you. I have natural hair and always thought that this was for natural hair. Its good to always try them anyways cuz now you know this product is not for you .

  3. Following you now dear! Have a nice day :):)

  4. Hi sweetie, thanks for stopping by. I usually like anything thats made with shea butter, I'm surprised to hear this ones a bust :(

  5. I mostly see a satisfaction review of product now I see a dissatisfaction.. Lol :p Yes because some products are not suitable for us but can be suitable for the others :)

    By the way I have followed your twitter, mind following back my twitter and follow my blog too? :)


  6. I just wanna say that I ADORE your blog! You have an amazing style!

    I would be so happy if you could check out my blog!

  7. great review, and very well written. :)

    enjoy your wknd! :)


  8. thanks for the review, it looks a good product! (:

  9. I've found that this product works best as a styler. I used it once as a Deep Treatment and it did NOTHING..I mean NOTHING for my hair. But as a styler/moisturizer/'s bomb! It's part of my holy-grail product line up.

  10. I think since you are a natural seeking moisture this Silk Elements product may work for you.,default,pd.html

    I'm relaxed and I use this one and I refer to is as Hair Crack because it works wonders on my relaxed hair and my hair be calling for it. LOL! :),default,pd.html?cm_vc=SEARCH

    Good Luck!

  11. Sorry that the product didnt work for you. I am actually relaxed and use a couple of Shea Moisture products as staples . Never tried this one though.

  12. i'm glad you reviewed this product b/c i glance at it every time i'm in the hair section of target, so i won't be purchasing it. i don't know that i have dry hair but i do have a dry scalp and to combat it i make sure to wash/cowash weekly.

  13. thanks for the warning. Looks like it doesn't suit your hair type. I have dry frizzy hair too. I used olive oil sometims to condition my hair.


  14. i hate spendiong money on products that dont work x

  15. Yeah I'm Natural and Shea moisture is strait from heaven! Sorry it didn't work for you.. =/

  16. Aww man! I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. Shea Moisture products always leave my hair feeling soft and I've got some pretty dry hair. Maybe try it again...
