If it seems like every time you turn around there is a new Shea Moisture Hair collection out... you may be right. I remember when I started my natural hair journey I only knew of two hair collections. Now Shea Moisture's brand has expanded beautifully and have over 15 hair collections to meet your hair needs. If you're new to the natural hair game, lost, or just want to learn more about what is out there I've broken down the Shea Moisture hair collections by your hair needs. I've personally had experience with over 10 of their lines (I'm a product junkie I just can't help myself) and each one is really formulated to help address different issues our hair may be experiencing. With specific key ingredients there is a Shea Moisture hair collection that is made specifically for you.
The African Black Soap Line from Shea Moisture focuses on relieving dry itchy scalp. People who suffer from dandruff, eczema, and psoriasis would benefit most from this line. The key ingredients prevalent in the African Black Soap Hair Collection are obviously African Black Soap, coconut oil, and plantain enzyme.
This is one of the latest Shea Moisture hair care lines and I stumbled onto it at Target just a few weeks ago. I am so happy to see this line was created because Shea Moisture is a crucial line to naturalistas everywhere but certain ingredients can really be detrimental to our hair care. Women with low porosity hair have a hard time taking in moisture. Therefore the focus in this hair care line is all about moisturizing and balancing your moisture resistant strands.
The Mongongo Hemp Sead Oils is the opposite of the Low porosity hair care line, as high porosity hair requires different things. This line focuses on sealing the moisture in to your hair that often escapes if you suffer from high porosity.
This was the first line I ever used from Shea Moisture and it is what made me fall in love with the brand as well as my natural hair. The key featured ingredients of this line are coconut oil, silk protein, and and neem oil. These ingredients are great for tackling/ detangling/ moisturizing and nourishing thicker courser natural hair.
The Fruit Fusion Coconut Water hair care line is made for finer/thinner hair that requires a lighter thought. I like to think of this as the counter product to the Coconut and Hibiscus line. What I like about this line is it has a styler, cleanser, hair masque, conditioner, and spritz!
The raw Shea butter collection is great for damaged hair and for those who are transitioning because of the presence of Shea Butter, Argan Oil, and Sea Kelp. However I find that the Raw Shea Butter line also works great for women with type four hair in general. It provides moisture, great slip, and is thick enough to help ease the detangling process.
This is absolutely one of my favorite Shea Moisture hair care lines and the hair masque is my favorite product. I think the Superfruit complex works best on type three curls, but really you cant go wrong with this line on any hair type you have. Then why the type three suggestion? The super fruit 10-in-1 complex helps with elasticity that gives that extra boing in your curls especially when doing a wash and go. While women with type 4 hair can certainly benefit (like I said this line is awesome for ALL) I worry about recommending wash and gos to women with type 4 hair for fear of the single strand knot! If that is not a huge concern of yours then please please please feel free to give this amazing line a try!
When Shea Moisture came out with their JBCO line the natural world went crazy and with good reason. This line catered to women's prized possession: their Edges! It also contained ingredients that focused on strengthening and growing your hair. Women who suffer from dry or damaged hair should definitely give this line a try. I do warn that it does contain a strong amount of protein and if you have a protein sensitivity you should avoid this line!
This is another Shea Moisture line that I stumbled on while aimlessly wandering the beauty aisles in Target. This line is focused on protecting your hair from fading if color treated as well as adding in extra protein that our hair often loses when colored. I've been using this product lately to upkeep my recently colored hair and I'm loving how soft it leaves my hair without worrying about fading my color out.
If you're like me and want to oil your scalp more often but realize your hair would become an oil slick... then you need this product in your life. The African Water Mint and Ginger hair care line is meant to detox your hair/scalp, refresh your hair while being gentle as well. It takes away the excess oil without stripping your hair down and making it feel dry.
