When I heard the news via social media the Curl Kit would have a new take over box featuring the one and only Shea Moisture I could believe it. I was so excited that a year after ending my subscription with Curl Kit ( due to Product Junkie Syndrome issues) I re-upped my service with the company. I headed over to the the Curl Kit site (see below) I was all set to go. I never thought Curl Kit would feature almost the entire line of Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil line. So the wait began for this epic box of heaven to come in the mail.
Fast forward to May 14, 2015 the eagle landed after almost a month of waiting it was finally here it was D-Day (Delivery day). I couldn’t believe how heavy the box. I took out all the product and stared at them with amazement. I couldn’t wait for wash day. So a few days later I got to see what all the hype about She Moisture line was all about. This line in particular got rave reviews and I had to put it to the test. My lion mane is a “diva snob product addict” and all products are not created equal, so this was gonna be make or break for these newly added products.
Wash day started as normal I pre-pooed (pre-shampoo) my hair using coconut oil and my go to African pride Olive Oil Miracle Oil using the finger detangling method. This technique and method allows easier detangling and less stripping of natural oils from the hair during the shampooing process. I LOVE this shampoo. Its so moisturizing and none stripping with a thick concentrated formula. This one is definietly a keeper for my staple products. I next used the Shea Moisture JBCO strengthen grow & restore treatment masque. Yet again another KEEPER for the stash. The creamy thinkness of the product leaves the hair super soft. I was able to finger detangle my hair using this product. Once applied through out my hair and covered with a plastic cap I sat for 30 minutes using a hooded dryer. I rinsed off the hair masque and followed up with Shea Moisture JBCO Strengthen Grow & Restore Leave-in Conditioner. At first glance this conditioner is a lot lighter and has a creamy, runny consistency but packs a nice amount of slip well as moisture for my hair. I finally used the Shea Moisture JBCO Strengthen grow & Restore Edge Treatment as a styler to twist my hair in medium sections. This is my least favorite out of all the products due to the fact I just can’t seem to find the best way to use this product. It isn’t a traditional edge control since it has little hold for my hair type (type 4). My hair doesn’t care for product over loaded in glycerin so this one may be going to the product grave yard stash until I can figure out how to use it for my hair. Later in May Walgreen had the infamous Shea Moisture BOGO sale and I ended up ordering the growth lotion from the JBCO line that worked so amazing with the leave in conditioner. I used the “LOC method” (leave-in, oil, cream moisturizer) on damp hair.
Over all I loved the May Curl Kit box. I’ve been using all the products minus the edge treatment for the month of May into june. I do see myself repurchasing this whole line in the fall or even the next Walgreens BOGO sale later this year. I highly recommend the shampoo, hair masque and leave-in conditioner as starter products for anyone who wants to try Shea Moisture products.
