What it is: Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow, & Restore Shampoo & Conditioner
Where to buy: Amazon.com
Overall rating: 8.5 / 10
Having a good working shampoo and conditioner is essential in maintaining healthy and growing hair for any natural. The Strengthen, Grow, & Restore Shampoo & Conditioner from the Shea Moisture JBCO collection is formulated specifically for fixing problems associated with dryness and brittleness in your hair. It additionally helps to gradually strengthen weakened strands. Those with thinning hair or other problem areas may find help with this shampoo and conditioner duo.
The set features a moisturizing clarifying shampoo that will gently remove build-up while avoiding stripping your hair of its natural oils. The fortifying conditioner is used as a follow-up and replenishes the hair with an infusion of stimulating and healthful ingredients. The Jamaican black castor oil infused in the product is a widely used oil well known for promoting hair growth. Additionally, the ingredients consist of a blend of natural extracts, oils, and shea butter.
Initial & Lasting Impressions
Although the bottles do not look to be as big as other shampoo and conditioners, I was gladly mistaken. These products ended up lasting me a good couple of months. The smell of the shampoo and conditioner features a lush scent, with a blend of peppermint and shea butter. Shea butter aids in moisture retention and the peppermint additive helps to stimulate growth. Both the shampoo and conditioner have a smooth consistency that lathers favorably – not too little and not too much.
After using the shampoo, my hair felt completely cleansed without that “stripped” dry feeling. The lather of the conditioner further moisturized my hair and made detangling easy, with the help of its creamy consistency. I did notice some hair growth likely attributed to the help of this duo over the months.
Pros & Cons
- Cleanses well
- Easy lather
- Pleasant scent
- Gradually strengthens strands
- Replenishes moisture in hair
Shea Moisture’s Strengthen, Grow, and Restore Shampoo & Conditioner successfully does what it is targeted for. I would recommend this product to anyone with dry, damaged, or weakened hair. With one use you will be able to tell a difference in moisture and softness. Overtime, healthier hair is noticeable as the Jamaican black castor oil and other moisturizing ingredients work to promote hydrated, stronger strands.
