Hi natural hair queens, lovers (famzers), boyfriends, friends and family and everyone involved in the movement! You all gotta hear about this hack I found.
The first time I used a Shea Moisture product (The Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie), it felt like a miracle…because magic doesn’t cut it! My hair density is highly high which means you can hide a pen in my hair and have to look for it! Lol. My hair also tangles ehnnn and that’s because it is kinky as kinky can get. Talk about dealing with bad hair days, I know it like I know my name!
To my testimony! I used this product and let’s just say it is exactly what is written on it! CURL ENHANCING. Period!
Well, I realized that Shea Moisture has such a variety of product lines and I can imagine how confused anyone would be seeing the different colours of jars, different descriptions (my oh my, they do a great job with this). It would even be more annoying if you already bought a product and didn’t achieve the results you wanted.
Well, well, well! I found a simple hack. All you have to do is follow the following steps on A Million Ways to Shea and you’ll get a SUMMARISED list of products best for your hair types, colour, desired style and everything else.
See how mine turns out:
- Go to A Million Ways to Shea. (make sure you finish reading this post first sha…)
2. If you’re happy to share your natural hair pictures like me, upload a picture, confirm your hair type & desired style.
As you can see, my hair is KINKY and I picked ‘Wash & Go’
3. Down to a very important part:
My hair is DRY thanks to HIGH POROSITY (this means my hair takes in moisture but loses it real quick)
THICK…check! VOLUMINOUS…check! HEALTHY/DAMAGED?…let’s not too confident. NATURAL…of course! So, you see how you can get to adjust the levels?
4. What are your top three HAIR GOALS? Guess what? You can choose more after your first three.
Mine is to Hydrate/Moisturise, Define Curls and Detangle
5. Now, I don’t have to deal with that confusion and I also get to SPEND WISELY!
Did I buy these products? YES! The Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil shampoo & conditioner were the first to jump in my cart.
I didn’t get the masque from this line because someone’s got a plan! I want to add more colour to my hair by the end of the year and ‘A Million Ways to Shea’ recommended the Shea Moisture Mongongo & Hemp Seed Oils High Porosity Moisture-Seal Masque and Finishing Elixir.
As for the detangler, I got a detangler (and more) from another line (which was in my goody box from the Shea Moisture Nigeria event…benefits of being a naturalista, aye!)
And finally, my all-in-all product…the Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie. I met Ekene of thekinkandi.com at the Shea Moisture Nigeria event and she told me how the Style & Curl milk from this same line works best for her so guess who did copy copy and bought it. Don’t judge me, her hair is amazeballs! Well, I really love the style milk but I think my connection to the Curl Enhancing Smoothie is emotional.
Stay tuned as I share my reviews of these products! You can get all SHEA MOISTURE hair and skincare products (yes, SKINCARE) from Perfect Trust at great prices.
