Sheamoisture Coconut & Hibiscus KIDS : Product Review

I am a fan of Sheamoisture deep conditioners, souffle gel and a few of the spritz's.  The main issue I have with Sheamoisture is the ingredients are very similar no matter which line you pick.  I know the company was founded on using Shea butter but my hair is so not a fan of heavily laden Shea butter products. Most of the deep conditioners or masques have a high content of water in them so they sink into my hair easily. Those that do not , I use as a pre-shampoo treatment and then really do not have the need for it to sink it because its basically to coat my hair strands  to retain moisture in the washing process.

Earlier in the year Sheamoisture released several new items and among them were kid geared products.  If you do not know by now, that doesn't stop a full fledged product junkie like myself.  If the ingredients look good , then I'm game.  So, I found a few items and really was not expecting much because the Coconut & Hibiscus line is not a favorite of mine . I don't deal well with coconut and then to add shea butter too? That's why the Curling Smoothie did not work for me.  It's too heavy and not moisturizing (wet) enough for me.

When I spied the Curling Buttercream  and Extra Moisturizing  Detangler my eyes perked up.  Butter cream you say? Well alright!! ...EXTRA moisturizing? Well I had to try them out.  Right off the bat the butter cream is way more moisturizing than the smoothie.  I can feel the moisturizing properties when I scooped some out. It felt wet compared to the smoothie, which felt....buttery.

The Detangler I was skeptical of because its a spray and watery. When I think of detangling my hair , I want slippery and creamy. Little did I know the combination of these two products would keep the moisture in my hair for seven days without me having to reapply.

The kicker for me that I think are making these two of my favorite items is ...the  slippery Elm and marshmallow extracts.What I will say is , using the detangler by itself, is nothing special. I think they were formulated to specifically use together OR if you're going to use the detangler seal it in with a butter type product to seal in the additional moisture. I love both of these items together and will continue to buy them as long as Sheamoisture is selling.
