Hello all 🙂
It’s time for another product line review and this time this is one of my favorite lines. I absolutely love pretty much everything I have tried from this line and not to mention everything is pretty much affordable. I have been using SheScentIt since 2012 and here is a link to a previous review I did –> https://thelifeofaleo.com/2012/12/19/in-review-she-scent-it-riche-moisture-masque-banana-brulee-moisturizing-conditioner/
But anyway let us begin with a review of the products that I had purchased over BF. First up is one of her newer products, the Blueberry Cowash.
Price 12.00 for 9 ounces
What it contains Purified Water, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Marshamallow Althaea Officianalis Root Extract, Rice Bran(Oryza Sativa) Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado Oil), Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Yucca (Yucca Schidigera) Root Extract, Cetrimonium Chloride, Vegetable Glycerin, Vaccinium Corymbosum (Blueberry) Seed oil, Panthenol Vit B5, Fragrance, Germall Plus, Lactic Acid.
What it claims to do 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.
How to Use Apply to wet hair. Massage gently into hair and scalp. Leave on for up to 15 minutes. Rinse. Hair is now soft, conditioned and healthy.
My Review First off let me just this smells divine. The blueberry scent isn’t too powerful but it’s just enough to leave your smelling your hair even after it is rinsed out. Secondly, I like how this product is in a pump bottle which makes it easier to apply to your hair, however I’m not sure if my product was just too cold but I had to pump extra hard to get the product out. I actually followed the directions on this product and applied to it wet hair and left it on for 15 minutes. I was able to detangle and my scalp was fairly cleansed. I forgot to take a picture of my curls after using this product but just know that my curls were poppin. I could definitely see using this cowash to do wash n go’s in the summer. Great product and it is a definite repurchase.
Next up is the bestselling Avocado Conditioner.
Price 8.50 for 9 ounces.
What it contains Purified Water, Persea Gratissima (Avocado Oil), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Vitis vinifera (Grape Seed) Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol, Cocos nucifera (Coconut oil), Panthenol Vit B5, Propylene Glycol (and) Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, fragrance, color
What it claims Avocado Conditioner was naturally formulated to rejuvenate dry, over-processed hair in as little as five minutes.
This conditioner also possesses excellent detangling capabilities and leaves hair smelling yummy with the fresh scent of berries and citrus!
How to use After shampooing, apply to hair. Leave on for 1 to 10 minutes. Rinse.
My Review I used this product after using the cowash and maaaan, listen the smell of these two together was AH-MAZING!! I was able to easily detangle (tons of slip) and my hair was very moisturized after leaving it on for 10 – 12 minutes. I’ve included pictures of my curls after using this conditioner and again they were poppin. Can we say Holy Grail product? I see why this conditioner is one of their best selling products. Next sale, I will definitely purchase a 16 ounce bottle of this conditioner.
Next is the Okra “Hair Repair” Reconstructor, yet another highly recommended product.
Price 12.50 for 9 ounces
What it contains Aqua (water), aloe barbadensis (aloe vera) leaf juice, cetearyl alcohol, Okra extract, behentrimonium methosulfate, panthenol, hydrolyzed Keratin, hydrolyzed soy protein, Wheat amino acids, hemp seed oil, wheat Germ oil, Calendula, Sunflower extract, Sea Kelp extract, marshmallow, glycerin, rice protein, fragrance, Optiphen, Xanthan gum, citric acid.
What it claims
Repair damaged tresses with our new breakage control conditioner. We used organically grown okra along with a special blend of botanical extracts, protein and ceramide rich oils to help revitalize and bring life back to damaged hair.
How to Use Apply Okra Hair Repair Reconstructor to dry or damp hair. Leave on for 10 to 30 minutes. Rinse. Always follow with a moisturizing conditioner.
This treatment can be used weekly. Can be used with heat for 5 mins on a low setting. Results can be seen after just one use but will dramatically improve with regular usage over time. For badly damaged hair that is breaking, use twice weekly for the first month.
My Review ****HOLY GRAIL ALERT**** alright y’all so of course I’m a low porosity diva but my hair can tolerate certain forms of protein and the soy protein in Okra product doesn’t bother it one bit. After countless hours of research, I’ve realized that my hair regimen was lacking in protein/moisture balance so I had purchased this product on BF and have been using this product every other week since the beginning of the year (I know it is STILL JANUARY but YH8, lol).
Anywho I have followed the directions listed on this product and left it on for 30 minutes and always followed with a moisturizing conditioner. Can I just say that the claims it makes are true. I have noticed a huge difference in my strands, they are stronger in the front where my hair was colored. I absolutely love this product. However, I will note that I think 2x a month may be too much protein for my low porosity hair..yet I need to make sure that I’m not using other styling products that contain protein so I won’t experience a protein overload. Next month I’m going to try and use it 2x a month but take note in the styling products I’m using for my LCO method and to style my hair with and will report back with my results. Smell is divine and I haven’t yet used it with heat but I will be sure to test out the heat treatment with my next wash in a few weeks. This is definitely a repurchase and will be added to my HG list.
Lastly, is one of her newer products the Juicy Berry Buttercream.
Price12.00 for 5.5 ounces
What it contains Certified Organic Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Butter, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil,, Castor (Ricinus Communis) Seed Oil, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Seed Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Sea Buckthorn) Berry Oil, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, Fragrance, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel
What it claims Juicy Berry Buttercream frosting is a very nourishing hairdressing that promotes and maintains healthy hair growth by moistrizing and softening strands. It adds manageability and shine to naturally kinky, curly, permed and chemically treated hair, while nourishing deep from within the strands. Gives braids and twist the juicy shine that it needs. A must have for those harsh winter months!
How to use Rub a tiny amount between palms of hands. Apply to hair focusing on ends.
My Review I used this product along with Oyin’s Burnt Sugar Pomade to do my latest set of twists (I will do a separate post about this set next) and I love this buttercream. It is a light fluffy product that isn’t sticky and provides a ton of moisture. It contains a bunch of cool ingredients and surely lives up to its claims of providing the juicy shine to braids and twists. Didn’t notice much of a smell but I can detect a hint of lemon. My only problem with this is that it’s such a small amount of product for the price. I put a huge dent in my container and I can probably get 2 maybe 3 more uses out of this product, depending on the size of my twists. I will probably repurchase only during a sale.
So that’s pretty much it for now. I have been stalking her IG and she posted a new product that contains chocolate, coffee and delicious fragrances that would be released for Valentine’s Day. Although, I do not need anymore products, I may pick up this new product just based on the description alone lol. Be sure to check out her website, there are a bunch more products that I want to purchase and try both hair wise and body wise.
Peace and Love ❤
