Review | Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk

I've been intrigued about the Shea Moisture brand for some time and, after a bit of deliberation, I ended up picking up the Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk (£12.99) from Paks a couple of weeks back.

It is pretty pricey considering it's only 236ml of product and this is the main reason I've been hesitant to try anything by Shea Moisture. I guess my curiosity got the better of me and I thought I'd at least try one product by the brand as I always see rave reviews. I'm happy to report the Curl & Style Milk did not disappoint, I absolutely love the product.

The main thing I was impressed with was the ingredients list and this helped me justify to myself how much this product costs. As well as Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Hibiscus Flower Extract, this product contains, Silk Proteins, Neem Oil, Carrot Oil, Honeysuckle and Vitamin E. It smells absolutely heavenly (very sweet, but thankfully not sickly) and I've had so many compliments on the scent.

I usually prefer milky products as my hair can't take much product at all. The product consistency is not what I expected, it's more like a yoghurt texture than milk. However, it's still light and doesn't weigh my hair down even though I've been really heavy-handed with this product. I've got through half a bottle already and I've only had the product about 3 weeks!

The product works so well at keeping my hair so soft and moisturised that I think I would repurchase this again. I just wish the bottle was a bit bigger for the price. I'll be using the other half a lot more sparingly to make this product last as long as possible.

Have you tried anything by Shea Moisture?
