Sheamoisture: Anti Breakage Masque In review

OK so since Sheamoisture is in Walgreen's it seems they have some new products. I'm not into hair milks that much or moisture sprays so I tend to go for deep conditioning products as I wash and go a lot so I tend to deep condition more as my strands need it.  I wanted to get the purification masque but for some odd reason the labels turned me off. Call me crazy but I like the packaging on products to at least look tempting and that one wasn't doing it for me. 

So on to the Anti Breakage masque,  This is geared for thin and fine hair , none of which I have but since when did that stop me.  I purchased it at my local Walgreen's for $10.99. I'm still peeved they are charging a dollar more but that's another story.

 Once I opened the jar I knew I would be using this as a prepoo or under my steamer because it is THICK. It so thick I'm tempted to even twist with it to see how it comes out. I didn't like the other deep conditioning masque ( Sheamoisture Deep Treatment masque) because of the smell so I didn't have high hopes of really liking this. Well, right off the bat it gets points knocked off for the smell. Its not overpowering but it is a floral smell that shouldn't be in a deep conditioner( to me). Its sweet sickly smelling , like a perfume. Ah,I just looked again at the ingredients, the culprit is honeysuckle! Usually I like honeysuckle but this as a sweet undertone so me no likey.  I do however love the texture.  If its thick and creamy I'm there!!  So far I give it points for be a smooth easy to prepoo with product, we will see how it works out as a deep conditioner.

I really wished my walgreens sold all of the shea moisture products. Everytime I go in I only see the shampoo, lol.
