Shescentit Product Reviews

I tried some Shescentit products back in 2009 and I was not impressed. At the time I tried samples of the Gillian and seyani butters,  the banana brûlée and tea tree and grapefruit conditioner along with the coco something leave in. It wasn't anything over the moon so I never went back until she released new items  this year.  Earlier in the year I ordered the Buriti Hair milk, Riche Moisture Mask, and Coconut Sorbet. I was pleasantly surprised.  Everything was really nice and I fell in love with the Coconut sorbet.  It is amazing as a prepoo treatment prior to washing . It detangles my hair and gets the shed hair out prior to washing.  Its listed that you can use it as a hairdress but leaving coconut in my hair doesnt really work out for me

For Black Friday, I ordered another Coconut Sorbet, her new Blueberry Cowash Conditioner and Papaya Curly Souffle.

I started off my wash day with the coconut sorbet and Hairveda Vatika Frosting as a prepoo on dry hair. After letting the oils soak in, I then detangled with my fingers and sectioned my hair into 4 sections with ponytail holders..

Blueberry Co-Wash Conditioner is a rich nourishing conditioner that moisturizes while gently cleansing by using the extracts of Yucca Root. It is a wonderful blend of conditioners, oils and botanical extracts meant to give your hair a true spa-like experience. Hair is left soft, detangled and frizz free.

After wetting one section of hair, I added the cowash, added a little more water and then proceeded to scrub my scalp. I put the ponytail holder back on and did the same to the other three sections. Once I finished the last section , I returned to the first one and washed the conditioner out. My hair was soft, bouncy and as the water rinsed off I could see the dirt rinsing away, letting me know that it was cleansing as well.

After rinsing I oil rinsed with BASK Beauty Limited edition oil ( review to come later) and after rinsing, added the Buriti Hair Milk, and twisted with the Papaya Curly Souffle.

After applying the hair milk and detangling, I then added the curly souffle.  My hair for once dried really quick and soft. I expected an ultra defined twist out the next day but after putting my twists in I went skating. The exercise made my twists puff out. The next day , the twist-out was still defined but not as much as it would have been if I hadnt exercised. The weather at the time in NJ was really cold, so my hair had a tiny bit of hold to it, probably due to the agave nectar but overall., I liked it.

In the future, I would repurchase the curly souffle and the coconut sorbet. Her other items are preserved by germall , which Im not a fan of, especially if I'm buying from an online vendor.
