I really like the Shea Moisture range – that really isn’t a secret – so when I was sent the Shea Moisture Extra Moisture Retention Shampoo to review, I thought this post was going to be BEYOND positive as until now Shea Moisture has never done any wrong in my eyes and my hair loves their products . . . but unfortunately I think I might have just found the Shea Moisture product that my hair (and I) just doesn’t like.
The Shea Moisture Extra Moisture Retention Shampoo – £10.99 via Boots - has been formulated to include Sea Kelp minerals to help detoxify and softly remove impurities and residue from the hair without stripping the stripping essential oils and moisture that your hair needs but honestly I feel like I couldn’t even get this shampoo to get into the roots of my hair.
It just seemed to spread over quite lifelessly over the shafts of my hair and just sat there . . . like I paid for it to go on a free holiday.
Now I don’t wash my hair as often as some people do but I do know how this procedure is meant to work – I read the instructions you see – but despite applying the Shea Moisture Extra Moisture Retention Shampoo to wet hair and gently massaging it, I just couldn’t work into a rich lather. It felt like moisturising slime. I ended up washing it out – getting shampoo in my eye – and using my regular shampoo to do the job.
I’m not saying that the Shea Moisture Extra Moisture Retention Shampoo won’t work for you and your hair even though it didn’t work for me but no product can work for everyone
The Shea Moisture Extra Moisture Retention Shampoo costs £10.99 and is available to purchase from your local Boots or on the Boots website
