Hair is such a massive part of someone’s appearance. No wonder the haircare market is so huge and full of various shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling products. We use them to keep our hair clean, controlled and presented in a way that suits our lifestyles and tastes. Do I personally love hair care products? I probably see them as a necessity, but I’m always open minded to using new products. What was recently new to me was Shea Moisture’s Moringa & Avocado Power Greens hair care range. I ordered 3 full size hair products direct from Shea Moisture and only paid £6.50 to cover the p&p charge.
Why did I order this?
I’ve used Shea Moisture products before and I’ve liked them. This brand is suitable for lots of diferent hair care types but probably pushed more towards people with afro Caribbean hair, which I have. I ordered this because Power Greens sounded nourishing for the hair which I need. The set contained a basic but full routine for a wash day and the price I paid was crazy! One full size product from Shea Moisture at full price can cost up to £13.00. So just paying for delivery costs for this collection was amazing value!
What did I get?
I received the Moringa & Avocado Power Greens Shampoo, Conditioner and Reconstructor.
What does this range do & who is it suitable for?
This range is designed to be lightweight on curly and coily hair. Perfect for weak, dull and coloured hair because it’s nourishing, gentle (no added sulphates or silcones) and effective at cleansing, conditioning and strengthening.
The shampoo and conditioner (has a pump to dispense) both come in slightly darkened plastic bottles and the reconstructor comes in a lidded tub. All three have a distinctive bright green label which fits in with the ingredients of these products perfectly.
All three products have the same fragrance. They smell fresh, sweet almost floral like but heading towards more plant based rather than floral flowers. Smells absolutely gorgeous!
Power Greens Shampoo
I expected the texture of this to be a little thicker but this was quite runny. It took two applications for this shampoo to really foam up and work into my hair, but that’s with any shampoo I use. Once I got to this point it foamed up like crazy. Easy to wash out and it left my hair feeling very soft and smooth.
Power Greens Conditioner
After using the shampoo, I followed it up with the conditioner. Thicker, less shower gel like than the shampoo and I used a lot less of it. I had this on my hair for probably 10 minutes (instructions said 3mins) then rinsed off. No residue in my hair and again my hair had that soft and smooth feel and seemed a little less detangled.
Power Greens Reconstructor
I thought the texture of this would be super thick, but I found this to be very loose . This wasn’t an issue it just surprised me. A small amount went a long way and I had this on for around 20 minutes (10-15 is suggested) with my hair wrapped in cling film (yes, I said cling film!). I expected my hair to feel incredibly soft after rinsing this off like the other two products but it didn’t feel like that. It was a touch tangled, not massively. The immediate feel after using the shampoo and conditioner I think was so good my expectations were so high for this and it didn’t quite match their performance.
My hair was in good condition after using this set. The shampoo really gave my very dirty hair and flaking scalp an effective but non stripping clean and didn’t dry it out at all. The conditioner just added to making my hair feel more treated. The reconstructor was ok but I don’t feel it added anything extra to my hair care routine. I would happily use it again but for me the winners were the shampoo and conditioner. So would I recommend this range? Yes I would! Shea Moisture isn’t the cheapest range but there’s lots of variety in regards to products and is regularly on some form of offer. Available in lots of places such as Boots, Superdrug and supermarkets so easy to get hold of. But keep an eye on Shea Moisture themselves. This is the second time they’ve had special promotions like this and it may not be the last!
