How I Used It

This masque by Shea Moisture has a strong smell, however it’s not a “bad” smell, but it’s a bit overpowering after a while. The consistency of this DC is comparable to a thick whipped buttercream.

I washed and detangled my hair, and I applied the anti-breakage masque. The product didn’t have any slip at all. I left it in for 30 minutes covered with a shower cap and a towel to prevent drips and got a little heat in there. My hair felt soft and moisturized after this usage. In the following week I used it again. As I was rinsing the product out my hair felt still soft but it didn’t feel moisturized and it tangled easily so that my hair became difficult to manage. I ended up going back in the shower to wet my hair and add a softening conditioner just to be able to detangle my hair properly.

After this experience I did a research on Shea Moisture’s Hair Masque and found out that this product is considered as a protein treatment and probably shouldn’t be used on a weekly basis.

Would I recommend  this?

I was thinking of swapping this Anti Breakage Hair Masque on our Facebook page “Frolicious Swap and Sell” but now I think I am going to keep this jar arround to use it once a month as my protein treatment.
