What a mouthful! I can finally bring you a review on the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave In Conditioner I got ages ago! Read on!
By now, every naturalista has at least one Shea Moisture product in their arsenal! If I had to guess it will either be something from their Coconut & Hibiscus line in that case it is the Curl Enhancing Smoothie or the Raw Shea Butter line then it’s their Restorative Conditioner LOL if not then I’m clearly outta luck! But now that they are available in the UK and in your local Boots we can wave good bye to international shipping costs!
I went to the Shea Moisture Launch Event, you can read my event cover here and got this product among others in my goody bag. Read my Superfruit Complex 10 in 1 Renewal System review here. I have been using this leave in for a while now and I am happy to report its no longer in rotation! And only a few products achieve that status lol. So let’s get into the nits and grits of it
First, read all about the Jamaican Black Castor Oil line and its full product collection here. The leave in conditioner is free from sulfates, parabens, phthalates, paraffin, mineral oil and synthetic colour. Its 3 main ingredients are
Organic Shea Butter- for deep moisture while conditioning hair and scalp
Jamaican Black Castor Oil- to promote healthy hair and growth and is full of reparative omegas
Peppermint- to stimulate the scalp for an invigorating experience
It smells like vanilla ice cream to me lol and has a runny consistency, I kinda wish it was in a pump bottle instead of a tub because of the consistency. But this gives it amazing slip! Its very good for detangling!- it’s the 1st leave in conditioner that has really impressed me with this.
When I first used it, I felt a tingling sensation on my scalp which is probably due to the peppermint in it. It was nothing too overwhelming but it was a nice experience.
My hair feels extremely soft afterwards and days after. Its honestly the 1st leave in I have used where I feel I don’t have to pair with an oil to get that silky feel in my hair ( I still do because I’m extra lol, but I have used it many times without an oil and my hair felt really good too)
I noticed that as my hair was drying it looked a bit flaky which scared me a bit- I absolutely hate the look of flakes in my hair! But in the end, when it was completely dry there was no flakes.
Verdict- I love this conditioner so much its now my everyday leave in and no longer in rotation! I love that you get a lot of product- 431ml which seems to last forever, I use a lot of it and it still seems to have a lot in the tub. It’s a 8/10
