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

Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave In Conditioner is priced at £12.99 on Boots. Its currently on offer, you get 10% off when you spend £15 or more on selected hair products

What’s your fav SM products and leave in conditioners?

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol). This blog will focus on 4 main areas Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style) Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip! With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?) So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you. If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy) Email- Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day. Love Sarah.
