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.

If you are desperately looking for a new hair product to restore moisture in your hair, or your hair is badly damaged and dehydrated after treatments like highlights, then this is the right product for you.

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.

After the second or third treatment with Shea Moisture products you can feel your hair texture returning to normal. It gets better after each wash and you can tell that the product is working as your hair becomes livelier.

The shape and size of the bottles are very handy to use. The shampoo has a disc cap opening, perfect to open with one hand and easy to pour the silky creamy liquid out of the bottle, whilst the conditioner comes in a pump version, very convenient to manage in your bath or shower.

The silky texture of the liquid is very nice and the smell is sweet.

A good scoop size in required for every wash and with this amount you can have a lavish lather to remove any dirt. It is good to note the creamy shampoo does not form a foamy lather like many shampoos but it still cleanses deeply from root to ends.

If your hair is really dry it is also recommended to do some pre treatments with coconut oil, or your favourite hair mask, especially when your hair is in a bad state.

After lathering the shampoo well into your hair, it is better to leave it in for a minute or two before rinsing. You can repeat this process if you think your hair is not clean enough, as it depends on what frequency 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, the same scoop size is recommended and you can comb it through your hair using your fingers, starting from scalp and continuing towards the ends. Leave it in 2-3 minutes before the final rinse. The conditioner untangles hair the very minute you apply it.

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.

The Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil shampoo and conditioner also feel good on your scalp and there is no irritation or itching. They are lovely products for your hair.


  • Sulphate free & colour safe,
  • Some amazing natural nutrients and non harmful ingredients;
    • Manuka honey retains moisture in hair.
    • Contains rich Vitamins A, C, D, E & F that fortifies the hair
    • Fig Extract is an anti oxidant, boosts hydration and protects hair from environmental stress.
    • Mafura oil, controls and softens damaged 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.
