Shea Moisture has been on a roll lately releasing new products and I will admit the PJ in me wants to check them out. Previously, I tried some of their older products and the results were lackluster. Recently I reviewed the Tahitian Noni & Monoi Smooth & Repair Nourishing Hair Masque and was very impressed. Shea Moisture sent me a sample of Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Treatment Masque and it arrived in good time because I am now out of the SRNHM. In following with my March hair goal I applied the product to clean wet hair and deep conditioned with heat using my Hair Therapy Wrap for about 25 minutes.
So here are my overall feelings about the SGRTM: the slip was minimal, the consistency was thinner than others in this line making it easier to apply, the smell is strange kind of reminds me of play doh but it’s very light and does not linger, and finally the results were okay. When I rinsed out my hair was soft but there was something missing, no wow factor. I would compare SGRTM to the Shea Moisture African Black Soap Purification Masque in terms of results, both were just okay for me but if you like ABSPM you will probably like the SGRTM. As for me I would not purchase this product because SRNHM was soooo much better in smell and performance.
(Side note: why do Shea Moisture products have such long names?)
