Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil – Review

Friday, August 29th, 2014

I ordered every item Shea Moisture offered in their Jamaican Black Castor Oil line. My hair likes castor oil so I couldn’t wait to use it, and now, I am excited about sharing my experience.

The shampoo is clarifying. The summary says it is gentle enough to use every day, and based on my results, I believe it. the product smelled like sweet warm vanilla that sort of reminded me of freshly baked goods from my childhood. My hair carried a weeks worth of heavy product build-up and I couldn’t wait to get rid off it.

I used two medium sized dollops to get a lather during the first wash and the same amount one time for the second shampoo. During and after the wash my hair felt clean, soft and moist. I was very pleased with the moisture experience especially since this is a clarifying product. After shampooing I was able to easily part and detangle my hair.

The Treatment Masque offered more sweetness. The Hubs said it smelled like vanilla pudding or newly baked donuts. To make sure this product saturated my hair I made 11 sections and put a generous sized dollop on each piece. Once the Treatment Masque was on I felt a slight warm penetration that was soothing.

I placed a plastic cap on my hair and then a heating cap. I left the heating cap on for 45 minutes. My hair was super soft and moist. After rinsing my little afro appeared to be a little stretched. I loved it.

I went to sleep and woke up the next morning with completely dry hair. My hair still possessed that sweetness. It was wonderful. My curls were dry but still had moisture. So to enhance the texture with moisture and shine, I added the hair serum to my scalp and blended it onto my hair. Use just enough or not enough. This product will run down your face. I had shine, softness, moisture and sweetness. It was great!

The leave-in conditioner’s texture is rich. The styling lotion is thick and creamy. I added both products to each two-strand twist I made.

My hair was bone dry so detangling was necessary and made simple with the use of the two products.

I made Bantu Knots from each twist and let my hair dry naturally.

The Edge Treatment is similar to thick jelly. It provides moisture and prevents flyaway strands. In addition, if you like to smooth your edges down this will be perfect. For me it is beneficial because it’s thick and moist and can stand on its own in New Mexico’s dry climate.

My Bantu knot-out was more like a curly afro. My curls were tight and moist and I really liked the results. The photo above is day 1. When I went to sleep that night I tied a silk scarf around my hair and fell out. I did not even try to sleep pretty.

The next morning on day 2 I still had well defined curls. No products were added – not even water.

My curly afro lasted all week. I didn’t have to re-twist my hair not one night. A little styling lotion and serum was added on day 4 to maintain shine and moisture.

Out of 1 to 5 curls Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil collection gets 5 curls hands down. I just love this stuff!
