My take on the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Treatment Masque-
The masque comes in a huge tub (340 gm!!!) with a screw-on lid. I hate scooping out any product with wet, slippery fingers & leaving water inside but have given up hope about better sense prevailing over hair care brands. So… Also, it is neither easy to balance on the shower ledge nor for travelling being so huge.
The masque is muddy brown in color with a very thick, pudding-y consistency which does not make it very easy to slather on wet hair. I struggle to smother my very dry hair lengths & ends with this since big chunks often fall off & get wasted.
I try to leave it on as long as possible *while I shave, exfoliate, wash* and then wash it off thoroughly. The first time I used it, my hair felt so detangled, soft and hydrated! After drying my hair naturally,I stared at my hydrated bouncy locks and noticed my frizz was cut down to a large extent without weighing my hair down! The effect lasted around a couple of days & did not make my scalp greasier than usual.
The fragrance is a sweeter version of the shampoo, more strong, caramel pudding like which I can totally slather on toast 😛 & lasts for ages!!
Pros of the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Treatment Masque:
1> Huge quantity, lasts forever.
2> Very very hydrating for dry-very dry hair.
3> Smoothens & calms frizz amazingly well.
4> Does not weigh down fine/thin hair.
5> Does not make my oily scalp greasier.
6> Yummy caramel dessert scent which lingers forever.
Cons of the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Treatment Masque:
Huge clumsy tub packaging.
Swatch of the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Treatment Masque-
My Rating: 4.7/5!
Do I recommend the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Treatment Masque?
Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Treatment Masque is a very good drugstore hair masque option for every hair type & texture. I have dry, thin hair & it hydrates & fights frizz without weighing my hair down which is quite remarkable. Also it is not at all expensive for the quantity it comes in & lasts forever. Recommended.
