Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo Review-
Hey pretties 🙂
I have greasy, sensitive scalp & dry hair so I generally have quite a tough time choosing my haircare products to say the least :-/ I picked up this very famous black castor oil clarifying shampoo from the natural, cruelty free brand Shea Moisture months ago & was in love for the first couple of months till my hair sort of got resistant to it. Read on!

My take on the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo-
The shampoo comes in a huge, sturdy plastic bottle with a flip-top cap. It is a big bulky bottle (506 ml!!!!) so its difficult to handle with slippery hands in the shower, pour it & forget about travelling with it :-/ They don’t do any other sizes so travelling is never an option!
The shampoo is dark brown in color with a very runny texture & I need quite an amount for it to spread on my greasy hair properly & lather up. It does not foam much (sulphate free!) but does clean the scalp & hair very well which is a blessing & gets rid of build-up.
The first couple of months I used this, I used to swear by how shiny & healthy my hair looked & not at all dry! My ends were softer, almost frizz free with my scalp clean & balanced ^_^ However, 506 ml is a lot of shampoo to use up & unfortunately my hair & scalp got used to it I guess & suddenly it wasn’t doing any more wonders- just another nice shampoo nothing more!
My hair still looked nice, but not as healthy or frizz free as it used to be when I used this & I was really upset 🙁
It did not aggravate my sensitive scalp in any way though & did not increase/decrease my usual hair loss.
The shampoo smells gorgeous- a light, sweet vanilla custard scent which lingers softly in hair for the entire day!
Pros of the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo:
1> Sulphate, paraben free!
2> Cleans greasy scalp & hair thoroughly without drying.
3> Hair looks & feels soft & healthy with reduced frizz.
5> Lovely soft vanilla custard scent which lingers.
Cons of the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo:
Big bulky bottle inconvenient & not travel friendly.
It stopped working wonders after using continuously for a couple of months 🙁
My Rating: 4.1/5!
Do I recommend the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo?
Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Shampoo is a nice, affordable natural drugstore shampoo which is free from all the nasties! It used to work amazingly well on my frizzy, fine hair & greasy scalp but my hair got gradually used to it & I don’t think I would repurchase it right now.
