Shea Moisture: Natural, Organic and Cruelty-Free Haircare

If you've been reading my recent posts, you know that I've been on the hunt for more natural products. Discovering skincare is one my current favourites at the moment but I realised that I've also used a haircare range that ticks all the boxes: natural, organic, cruelty free and many many many other things.

I introduce to you Shea Moisture! So I've used Shea Moisture for a while - the Raw Shea & CupuaƧu range is great for frizzy hair and I've already mention the Black Castor Oil Leave-In Conditioner in this blog post. But the brand has a new range out and I knew I had to share it on the blog.

The Manuka Oil and Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo, Conditioner & Hair Masque* is made for those with dry & damaged hair, aka me.

In the shower, I shampoo first and let the product sit in my hair for a bit before rinsing off. I then pop the conditioner on and keep that on for a few minutes also. After washing & drying I noticed an instant difference in my hair. It was so soft and felt very replenished.

The three main ingredients in the shampoo and conditioner are Manuka honey, mafura oil and fig extract. They bring in moisture, controls damage and contains the antioxidant, vitamin C, which protects the hair and keeps the hair looking vibrant.

The hair masque is my favourite product in the range because it isn't your typical hair mask. You can either pop it on for 5-10 minutes and wash it off as a quick treatment or leave it in, put a plastic wrap (or shower cap) on your hair and apply heat for up to 30 minutes for a luxurious treatment. The Manuka honey in the ingredients acts as a humectant, which draws moisture into the hair. It sounds a bit like the haircare version of hyaluronic acid!

As well as being hydrating, the range is also free from sulphates, paragons, phthalates, mineral oil, synthetic colour and petroleum - which is a-ma-zing.

I also really like the back story to the brand, which is on the back of their bottles, so I thought I'd share. Sofi Tucker started selling Shea Nuts at the village market in Bonthe, Sierra Leone in 1912. By age 19, the widowed mother of four was selling Shea Butter, African Black Soap and her homemade hair and skin preparations all over the countryside.


Have you tried Shea Moisture before?
