Product Review: SHEA MOISTURE CURL ENHANCING SMOOTHIE.

 

Hi guys! How’s the weekend going? Today I’m bringing you a product review on Shea Moisture’s Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I have been wanting to try this for over a year now and I finally got it last year and here’s my review!

 

 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

Our CHS, enriched with silk protein and Neem oil, defines curls, reduces frizz and smoothes hair for a soft, silky feel. Coconut and Neem oil restore moisture and create brilliant shine. Nutrient –rich Vegetable butters condi­­tion hair without weighing it down for bouncy, healthy curls.

PRICE:

Sometime back, this product (120z jar)  used to be N2900 but I got it for N3300 mid last year at Olori.com.ng but due to this whole dollar- naira situation the price of this product has gone up to N7000!

 

 

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
The product comes in this cute, clear, open-lid jar covered with a peach label.

It’s white in color with a pudding-like consistency which can be difficult to scoop out sometimes.

It has this amazing combination of different floral scents that I can’t really pinpoint. Yum!!

MY EXPERIENCE:
I use this as a leave in conditioner and follow up a light oil and Shea butter. It is a really a good moisturizer because it does keep my hair very soft for 4/5 days. I noticed this only works when I do the LOC Method- Leave in, Oil and Cream combination. In terms of curl definition, it defines my twists outs really well and provides shine too. Though it is packed with oils, it doesn’t make my hair feel oily or weigh it down and goes in smoothly into my strands without much effort.

PROS:

Great moisturizer for my fine strands

Absorbs into my hair easily

Contains tons of natural oils

It defines my hair

It mixes well with other products

A little goes along way

It looks and smells yummy. Lol

 

 

CONS:

It’s a bit difficult to scoop out the product sometimes, it slips off my finger!

Extremely pricey!

 
WOULD I BUY THIS AGAIN?
Err… well I would buy it again if not for its ridiculously expensive price.

 

 

SUMMARY:

It’s a really nice product that does what it says: moisturize, defines and provides shine. It gives me moisture that actually stays a long time. Lovely product.

If you are looking a moisturizing product that doubles as a styling product and wouldn’t mind breaking the bank for it, then this smoothie is for you!

    Haha shouldn’t the consistency be a pro instead of a con?
