When you’ve got hair as wild and unpredictable as mine, hair care is difficult to get right. That’s why I’m always open to trying new options in the hope that I can find a decent product or range. Anything that claims to act against frizz and tangles gets a thumbs up from me, so I was vert much looking forward to trying the Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth and Tame Shampoo and Conditioner* to review.
Story of the Shea Moisture Range
The Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth and Tame Shampoo and Conditioner have a lovely story behind them which dates back to the founder’s grandmother Sofia Tucker in 1912 who sold handmade hair soap using Shea Butter which inspired the Shea Moisture range. Such a lovely story and sentiment behind a range of caring hair products which makes it a more personal range.
The Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth and Tame Shampoo and Conditioner comes in light plastic bottles with different plastics dispensers for each product – a flip up for the shampoo and a pump dispenser for the conditioner. The label is a burnt orange colour with white writing which gives the natural product vibe and really suits the product and it’s ethos.
The Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth and Tame Shampoo and Conditioner works to combat fine, frizzy, straight and wavy hair. The shampoo cleanses and hydrates and the conditioner softens and de-tangles.
The Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Smooth and Tame Shampoo and Conditioner are sulphate free, safe to use on coloured hair and don’t use any parabens or other nasties in their ingredients. It uses argan oil and almond milk with marshmallow root extract (helps hair to look thicker as it binds to hair proteins and also helps detangle hair) and Cherimoya (an exotic fruit which contains vitamin C to promote healthy hair).
Formula and application
The Shampoo is of decent consistency which spreads well around the hair when lathered up. Two applications of shampoo is the best way to use it I’ve found for best results. The Conditioner on the other hand is a lot thinner than I’m used too with conditioners and I have to have at least six pumps worth to cover my thick hair and ensure hair is really wrung out so as not to be too wet for the conditioner to stick properly.
After washing out the Shampoo, my hair feels so soft and silky which doesn’t usually happen after using a shampoo with me. The Conditioner makes my hair feel amazingly soft and smelling so amazing. It reminds me of vanilla marshmallows and the scent carries on throughout the day afterwards, when usually after drying and straightening and using lots of product the shampoo and conditioner scent is usually lost pretty quickly. My hair is also a lot easier to brush out and I haven’t even needed to use my trusty kids de-tangling spray which is an amazing result as my hair gets so knotty!
Price and purchase
I’m really impressed with the results of this range – it did what it said on the tin and it doesn’t contain any nasty products that can harm the hair. It smells incredible and it has a scent which lasts, an most of all it detangles my hair which is a miracle in itself! I highly recommend this to anyone suffers from thick, tangled and/or frizzy hair.
