Shea Moisture Purification Masque
I was given this product to try by my natural-haired 4c coworker who simply loved the product herself and is an avid user of the Shea Moisture product line. Of course, the first thing that I did was to open up the jar and the smell of ripe bananas wafted through the air! I had wanted to try a bentonite clay treatment but was not looking forward to the mess of having to mix it and then apply it. This seemed to be a great alternative to that. The consistency was that of a light custard mix with fine sand, it was shakeable and creamy but thick enough to not swoosh out of the jar.
How I Applied the MasqueI did not cowash my hair before I applied the Shea Moisture Purification Masque. I was able to simply use my fingers to lift product from the jar and "smooth" onto my hair. I started out applying the masque on dry, sectioned hair (4) and wasn't liking the results. I realized that I had been wearing a wash n' go, which is what I do 99% of the time. So, I stopped and dampen my hair with plain water and the application of water under the product immediately smooth out the texture of my hair and dissolved my tangles.
I also realized that using the water under the product allowed me to use much less of the product which yielded great results. The product simply melted my hair into a smooth, warm butter!
After the application of the masque, I took the extra step of massaging my scalp from front to back and then I covered my head with a plastic cap and since I had applied the product before just going to bed, I kept it on throughout the night. In the morning, hair was moist and I could easily run my fingers through my 3c-4 type hair. I then rinsed out the masque and applied my Tresemme Naturals Conditioner as my leave-in.
