My Shea Moisture Hair Product Review

My experience so far with Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner, is very good.

I was desperately looking for a new product to restore the moisture in my hair as it was badly damaged and dehydrated after doing highlights, and it felt like straw.

Searching on the net, I came across the Shea Moisture and after reading quite a few reviews I decided to purchase the shampoo and conditioner and see how it goes.

I’m probably on my fifth wash and my hair texture has already returned to how it used to be. After each wash I was noticing a better result and by the third wash I could feel it working into my hair.

I like the lot about the Shea Moisture hair products mentioned; the shape and size of the bottles are handy, the shampoo has a disc cap opening, perfect to let the creamy silky liquid come out easily and the conditioner comes in a pump version, very convenient to manage with one hand. I also like the silky texture and the smell.

I use a good scoop size in every wash and with this amount you can have a lavish lather to remove any dirt. The creamy shampoo does not form a foamy lather like many shampoos but it still cleans the hair well.

On some occasions I did pre treatments with coconut oil, since my hair was in a very bad state, and the Shea Moisture shampoo then clears the coconut oil easily when you wash it.

After lathering well, I tend to leave it in for a minute before rinsing. You can repeat this process if you think your hair is not clean enough depending on how often you wash your hair. Because I have dry hair, I prefer to wash it every 3-4 days.

As regards to the Shea Moisture Conditioner, I use the same scoop size and comb it through my hair using my fingers, starting from scalp towards the ends. Then I leave it in for 3 minutes before the final rinse. The conditioner untangles hair easily.

The result is a clean, soft, moisturised and revitalised hair. My hair is of medium length and wavy. I like how the smell of clean stays in the hair for days.

These hair products also feel good on the scalp and there is no irritation or itching. They are lovely products for your hair.

  • Some amazing natural nutrients and non harmful ingredients;
    • Manuka honey retains moisture in hair.

Helping the Community



To me: none

The fragrance which is a blend of essential oils may be a bit too powerful for those who do not like strong sweet aromas.

Final Verdict

All in all customers’ feedback are very positive on both the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner, and they seem to work better for people with dry, dehydrated hair.

I can count myself as one of the happy consumers with excellent results so far. I will definitely recommend these products

  1. Since I’ve been growing my hair out more lately due to the shops being closed, I’ve started using more moisture repair shampoos, and they seem to work kinda meh so far. However, I have seen things online about honey being a good treatment for hair, but it just seemed a little too weird for my taste, pardon the food pun (non-intentional lol).

    Although, seriously, honey to me is always something you put on like food and seems like you would want to keep sticky things like honey out of your hair, but I was wondering, is this shampoo and conditioner sticky like honey?

    Again, I’m new to the world of hair care products. Sorry if my question is a bit too ignorant. I definitely enjoy learning new things like this and being stuck at home like this is a great way to do it.

    1. Hi Matt, thank you for writing. Honey is being used in many beauty products, and especially Manuka honey. Honey brings back moisture to your hair, and do not worry, it is not messy unless you apply pure honey directly onto your hair. Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil products are creamy silky liquid. 

  2. Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Shampoo & Conditioner sound like a luxurious product for the hair. I also enjoy reading the list of non included in your article as I am especially against any kind of animal testing.
