So, I just mentioned that I needed to try the Jamaican Black Castor Oil line from SheaMoisture a few weeks ago and just like that my September Curlbox delivered my wish! Hey Curlbox, If I ask to hit the Powerball Lottery will that wish be granted too? Since you guys are making wishes come true and all I thought I would ask. LOL. All joking aside folks, this is a MEGA box with four full-sized products and 1 trial size tube of “Extra Moisture Detangler”. All of the products can be used separately or in conjunction with each other (with the exception of the Treatment Masque). I love when I can use the products in the box together. It gives the box a more cohesive feel. Lets get into this September Box!
List of SheaMoisture Items in this month’s Curlbox:
The products couldn’t get any better or bigger. The Jamaican Black Castor Oil line smells divine. There is a light vanilla scent that is just right.
The 12-oz, “Strengthen Grow & Restore Treatment Masque” has a pudding like consistency and smells out of this world. The “Strengthen Grow & Restore Edge Treatment” came just in time for my Winter routine.
The “Styling Lotion” will be a staple for my daughter’s hair while I may run through this “Hair Serum” like it’s water.
A little bonus sample of “detangled” is always a good idea. Every wash comes with a detangle in curly world. I’m happy to see the St. Jude reminder in the box as well.
You can get SheaMoisture’s line at your local CVS or Target store.
I started buying Shea Moisture lotions and soaps a few years back after I found it at my local drug store. I loved the brown package and the story behind the company appealed to me. I became a fan after using the products. I am a big Shea Butter fan and I still buy the African Shea Butter in the tub for $4 at my African spot on Flatbush Ave in Brooklyn. I was pleased to see this shampoo available for me to smell and see recently at the Essence Street Style event in DUMBO. I adore the smell. There are hints and notes of vanilla bean that does not overwhelm or underwhelm. It’s just enough. A few of my Instagram pals have raved about the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo so naturally it has to be my next purchase.
Jamaican Black Castor oil is centuries old and is authentically used in Jamaica for restoring the hair. I’ve had versions where it was homemade in Jamaica or store bought in little glass bottles. I love the results but must report that I’m not a fan of the scent of the original and homemade castor oil. I’ve noticed more products on the market now with Jamaican Black Castor Oil as a main ingredient so when I smell something like this shampoo and the scent is phenomenal then I am pleased.
