Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow Restore Leave-In Conditioner Review

Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Conditioner

Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow Restore Leave-In Conditioner ($10.99) is a new leave in conditioner that detangles over processed hair! Whether you’re working over time with your drier or you’ve chemically processed your hair this new formula helps to prevent breakage and split ends while keeping your hair super moist and conditioned.

Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow Restore Leave-In Conditioner is one of several new Jamaican Black Castor Oil Haircare products that Shea Moisture is launching now at drugstores.

You might recall my first foray into the world of Shea Moisture haircare didn’t go as I had planned but I was determined not to give up on the line because it truly has some incredible reviews backing it. I’m glad I didn’t because I actually really like this new leave in conditioner formula.

I happen to be an air drier girl. I get out of the shower and I let my hair air dry. I’m not one for blow drying, I’m not one for straightening. I don’t perm, treat, or color my hair. However, I do have drier hair…and although this is formulated for those that are really hard on their hair it still worked great for me. It contains coconut oil as well as Panthenol plus shea butter, peppermint, and Jamaican Castor Oil. Jamaican Castor Oil is known for promoting healthy hair since it contains a good deal of omegas.

I have drier, wavy long hair that tends to tangle very easily. I use this after my shower on toweled dried hair. I simply flip my head over and proceed to work it through my hair paying particularly attention to the ends. A little goes a very long way as too much makes my hair oily. You can gently stroke it through your hair with your fingers easily enough. It has a very light coconut fragrance that’s quite pleasant. The formula starts out thick and creamy but when you rub your hands together it actually diffuses and becomes more of an oil which in turn makes it easier to work through hair. I get a fair bit of frizz so this does a nice job taming it and I also find that I can brush through my hair a lot easier after using it. Typically I towel my hair off, brush my hair out, flip it over, work this through, and I proceed to re-comb it out with a wide tooth comb as this gets the product nicely absorbed into my hair. My hair feels smoother and softer to the touch after try down and it could be my imagination but it also looks shiner.

I typically like using mist in conditioners but this was very nice. I see it being particularly good for those that blow dry their hair as it softens hair nicely on the dry down!

If you have drier hair or you’re over processing your locks this is a nice leave in conditioner to not only detangle hair but also to soften and smooth it out!

    I will be on the lookout for this one! I have long, waist-length hair, that is also color-treated & naturally drier/coarse, and my little one has hair that tangles easily, so I’m always looking for new products to try!
