Perusing the drugstore just got a LOT less fun now that I have much stricter standards for what I can try. So it’s a fun surprise when I come across a drugstore brand that truly meets my criteria. I picked up the above SheaMoisture products on a recent trip to Walgreens, but you can also find the line at Target and CVS.
SheaMoisture is a line of organic hair, bath, body, and shave products made with all-natural ingredients. And I mean truly, guys. There’s nothing shady on the ingredient lists . Here’s the list for the Reconstructing Finishing Elixir:
The prices are a little steeper than your average drugstore hair care product, but definitely worth it to find better hair care at the drugstore!
Much of SheaMoisture’s hair care line (the only products I’ve tried so far) seem to be formulated for people with courser, curly hair. My hair falls somewhere on that spectrum, but it’s probably on the straighter, less-course end. I have weird hair that can be frizzy, wavy, curly, thin, or thick depending on the day (yeah, it’s fun). SheaMoisture products definitely seem to calm down and de-frizz my hair, but I have to be careful about using too much of any product, otherwise it’s oil city.
I’ve actually been using the Reconstructing Finishing Elixir as a moisturizing body spray because I’ve found that using it on my damp hair just makes it look greasy. I haven’t tried using it on dry hair, though.
My favorite product of the three I’ve tried so far is definitely the Thickening Growth Milk. I’m not sure how thickening it is, but it definitely de-frizzes my hair without weighing it down. Oh! And I used to have this Coconut & Hibiscus Hold & Shine Mist, which is nice for refreshing curls and smells amaaaaazing. I kept it in my desk at work and every time I sprayed it, I would get comments like “What smells like a beach?! I WANT TO GO TO THERE.” I think I’ve also tried a body scrub at some point, but I can’t remember which one.
I will absolutely be trying more of SheaMoisture’s line — I’m interested in trying some of their non-hair care items! Have you guys tried the SheaMoisture line? What did you think?
Alsoooo, would you want to see a detailed review of any of the above products? If so, which one?
