She moisture has won my heart once again! I have had the the Purification Mask since the last Walgreens Bogo sale yes curilies not the one they just had but the one before that. Any who it was just sitting in my bathroom shelf looking pretty all lined up with some other products as part of my stash.

Then the other day after wearing my hair in a Wash N Go via the curly girl method I decided I wanted to use it as a pre-poo before I redid my twist.  As I took the time to read the ingredients I was perplexed as to whether it would be a good idea for me to sleep in the mask due to the fact that it had clay in it.  Any who laziness got the best of me and I decided I would sleep in it over night because I just could't was my hair that night I was to tired for all that work.  Well, well, well, I devided my hair into sections and then I moistened my hair with my water spritz and applied this funny looking masque to my hair.  WOWSA!!!! As I applied the product to my tresses it was like my hair immediately turned to butter, did I say butter I meant to say BUTTA!!

Now, bare in mind that I had been wearing a Wash n Go for the last 4 days and I was well aware of the tangles and thickness of curls that had settled on my head so I was prepared to do some work on single strand knots, kinks, and thirsty curls.  But let me tell you that all of the previously mentioned issues simply melted away as this product was applied and absorbed by my tresses.  My hair was singing  ALELUYAH and the chorus was responding AMEN.  This stuff is the and then some.  I was able to detangle each section without a problem and I detangled with my fingers.  I felt the stress melt out of my hair with every stroke of my hands that were saturated with this magical potion.  
Listen guys I don't flake and I don't fake but my curls, kinks and coils loved this stuff.
Lets take a look at the ingredients;

Well , O..K.. as per the ingredients list it seems that this product is suppose to be off the chain! So after it turned my hair to butter, and I mean not butter that had been sitting in the freezer but butter that had been left out at room temperature and had soften to a silky, smooth consistency I tried it on my daughters hair.  Now this child has great hair but her hair is in the 4's category and to say that she doesn't always treat it nicely is an understatement.  So I got my daughter in the chair and was afraid of what I was going to have to deal with after one week of her gelling her hair back into a puff and sleeping on it without moisturizing.  I pulled up my sleeves and as I applied the first dollop of the masque to her section what did I see but curls and coils coming out of the woodworks! What.....this must be some trick my eyes are playing on me I thought, but know I continued her application process and her hair turned to BUTTTTTAAAA before my very eyes!  THIS MASQUE IS MOST DEFINITELY ON MY HOLY GRAIL (HG) LIST, excuse my shouting but I shall never be without this product.  

Cost: $9.99 
Purchase @:  Walmart and select Target Stores

My only con with this product is that I cannot walk into any store in my location and purchase it, other than that I am in love with the Shea Moisture Purification Masque.  I encourage you to try it I can almost swear that you to will love it.  My favorite use for this product is as a pre-poo on me and my daughters hair.


  1. Great review! You're the second person to say this about this particular product, so I'm sold and will be ordering it this week! I just started using Shea Moisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie and instantly fell in love. It gives me fat juicy twists that I never had before. I was thinking, it must be my hair that's fine and limp and was just about to accept the fact that my twists didn't look plump like everyone else's but after using Shea Moisture products I now see the importance of finding the right product/chemistry for your hair. :)

    1. Thanks for the comment. I bet it will be the best 9.99 you ever spent. LOL I just like you love the curl enhancing smoothie for my twists they are left moisturized and juicy!

  2. I have tried the Shea Moisture Purification Masque too but my biggest problem is the smell. I could tell it was working on my hair and it made it super soft. But because all I could smell was rotted bananas I quickly washed it out. I was thinking of trying it again, since I still have a full container. I wish there was another way to get pass that smell. Nonetheless...I love Shea Moisture products. And you gave a great review!!

  3. You should work for shea moisture. lol Your review was so pure and honest I will definitely have to try this. I'm still a newby to this natural process. I'm still looking for that just right product. Thanks for your review I may get this today.

  4. While searching google I found your blog and I must say I agree with your review. I applied this product to my dampened hair and massaged throughout my scalp, let sit for 30-40 minutes (without a cap), rinsed and detangled with my denman and man o man what softness my hair achieved. Prior to using, my scalp felt tight & itchy which happens every year about this time. I did not wash my hair prior to application (my five day twist out consisted of the SM Curl Enhancing Smoothie and EVOO) nor did I shampoo my hair afterwards. I like to retain as much moisture that I can get! Detangling was easy, very nice slip! I plan to purchase again. Thanks for your review.
