Oh hai weekend, I could just kiss you! It hit the triple digits this week and IT. WAS. BRUTAL.! As you all know, I am from Alabama (if you don't know, now you know) and there is humidity galore there! We could take 5 showers a day during the summer and STILL feel sticky! #grosshuh I know! Let's get into this review!
I moved to Arizona, my hair and my skin were not accustomed to this type of "dry" weather. Only 6 months before that move, my hair was permed. It was so long, my grandpa wanted to cut it and glue it to his bald head haha! My hair was my pride and joy, I loved it so! Fast forward 9 months later I had to chop it all off! Why? Because Arizona's dry weather and my hair did not mix. I think have a security blanket such as hair is no good, especially at the young age of 13! I wish I would've known about Shea Moisture + plus the benefits of coconut oil to keep my hair hydrated back then or else my hair would've been so healthy and probably grown SUPER long!
Now that I've lived here for 11 years, I know how to keep my hair from being dry, and brittle! When I use the 100% Virgin Coconut Oil hair care line, I know that my hair is in good hands! This line is definitely a life saver when you're transitioning, moving to a dry weather state, or in need of some supple hydration for those curly strands!
1. Daily Hydration Shampoo:
On top of smelling like tropical vacation, The Daily Hydration Shampoo has the power to soften and bring my hair back to life when it needs it the most especially during the summer time! Now that I've lived here for 11 years, I know how to keep my hair from being dry, and brittle! When I use the 100% Virgin Coconut Oil hair care line, I know that my hair is in good hands! This line is definitely a life saver when you're transitioning, moving to a dry weather state, or in need of some supple hydration for those curly strands!
2. Leave In Treatment:
I have to be honest here... I don't blow dry my hair very often but when I do I generally don't use a leave in treatment! However from now on I'm going to. Why? HEAT DAMAGE! By putting this type of leave in treatment in my hair, it will ensure that my hair will keep from being heat damaged and as well as hydrated!
Even though the humidity was unbearable at most times, I never had an issue with dry skin like I do here in Arizona! This is were the Shea Moisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil comes into play!
1. 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Shea Butter Soap
So a confession for you, I HATE BAR SOAP!! I just hate the way it smells (ESPECIALLY Irish Spring sorry dad! lol ), I hate how cold it is when you start to use it, and the way it makes your skin feel after you use it. I even tried high end bar soaps and NOPE same thing! However, when I first got introduced to the Shea Moisture Shea Butter Soap, I was a little iffy (for reasons stated above) but I love Shea Moisture so I tried it and guess what!? I LOVE IT! My skin feel so smooth and hydrated for a long period of time! I will only use the Shea Moisture Soap bars from now on!
2. Daily Hydration Face Milk Cleanser:
I've never used a face milk before! This face milk cleanser is definitely amazing. It makes me feel like I just got pampered at a spa and of course smells fantastic! My face is definitly restored with the moisture it needs to conquer a summer day here in Arizona!
3. Daily Hydration Overnight Face Oil
Is it possible to feel like a new woman just after using an overnight oil? If it is, then my ladies should use this too! I love the fact that it comes with a dropper. When using this oil, you really don't need a lot, well unless you want to have a shiny forehead! In all seriousness, a little goes a LONG way! When I've had a long day at the jobs, I can't wait to use this oil to look presentable in the morning!
I definitely recommend using this line if you have dry skin, or hair! It's perfect for mixed textured, course, brittle hair and irritated skin. If I peaked your interest in this specific line, Shea Moisture is having a 25% off sale for Memorial Day weekend, you don't want to miss out!!
Hydrated skin = a VERY happy Josie
Have so much fun this weekend darlings! Let me know if you decide to grab a few items from the Shea Moisture Memorial Day Weekend Sale!
