SheaMoisture Raw Shea & Cupuacu Frizz Defense Line Review

SheaMoisture Raw Shea & Cupuacu Frizz Defense Line

Have you seen this line around? It is now available in the UK in Boot's and Superdrug. I was able to try the below 3 products, read for my review and watch my tutorial below!

I love all of the SheaMoisture shampoos I have tried because I find that they are much richer than a lot of shampoos and have a thicker moisturising feel to them. They also don’t leave that sticky feeling on your hair after rinsing out!

The Raw Shea & Cupuacu shampoo was no different and this line has such an amazing smell it’s a delight washing your hair with it! I was able to detangle my hair easily with the shampoo and saw my curls define during the process. It is a shampoo that lathers and be careful as a little goes a long way with this product! My scalp was left feeling clear and curls were tamed (no frizz at all) after rinsing away.

The conditioner is the same size and packaging as the rest of the rinse out conditioners from all SHEA lines. It comes in a bottle like the shampoo but has a very handy pump bottle which was the best part of this product! It’s so convenient and my hands down favourite conditioner to use as co-wash, it’s just so moisturising and I am able to detangle my hair so easily with it (like the shampoo) Not to forget it makes you hair smell amazing too!
I have been through 3 of these conditioners for the past year and I always reach for it over any other products to co-wash and refresh my hair in the shower with. It’s scent always makes it a go-to co-wash for when I have been around others that smoke or have been frying food, it definitely helps to get rid of the lurking smell.

Never a fan of using gel as a leave in for a wash and go so I was a tad reluctant when trying this product, so much that I have tested it as a styler alone and again cocktail'd with my favourite leave-in conditioner (JBCO). I definitely got much better results when cocktail'd as my hair is very thick and prone to dryness 1 product often isn’t enough for me to get the best wash and go!
This gel however comes out like a cream and is watery enough to be packaged in a squeeze bottle as if it was ketchup (lol). It is quite sticky so although you may be tempted to use a lot as you would with a conditioner, you should only use a dime sized amount.
After applying to my hair in sections I let my hair air-dry and my results were very big and defined curls! However I did experience some hardness so I would recommend that you do not use a lot of this styler and to combat the hardness I scrunched my hair with some oil on my palms to “break the seal” this eventually softened the hair.
I would recommend this gel to someone with much finer curls than mine or someone who takes to gel as a styler well. For me conditioner and creams are the best product types for my hair.

Overall these are the best smelling products from the SheaMoisture lines I have tried so far and the best shampoo and rinse-out conditioner for moisturise and preventing frizz!
