REVIEW ¦ Shea Moisture Manuka Honey Intensive Hydration Hair Masque


shea-moisture-manuka-honey-and-mafura-oil-intensive-hydration-hair-masque-review-stylishleeOkay, Okay! This one is sure is a mouth full but here goes…today I’m sharing with you my thoughts on Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Masque! Whew! See I told you…a mouth full! Now try saying that 3 times fast.

I’m making this review as short as possible because if you give me the chance I’ll be here repeating myself over and over and over again about how amazing this Deep Conditioner is. In total I’ve tried five different Shea Moisture Masque’s, ranging from the Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque, Yucca & Plantain Anti-Breakage Strengthening Masque, African Black Soap Purification Masque, the JBCO Strength, Grow & Restore Treatment Masque (review on this masque coming soon) and now the Manuka Honey Masque. From all five deep treatment masques that I’ve tried from Shea Moisture, hands down the Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Masque is my absolute favorite!


The masque is creamy and semi-thick. I say semi-thick because compared to the other masques I’ve used from Shea Moisture this one is definitely thinner in texture, and this is usually a tell-tale sign that I’m not going to like a product because typically thicker products work better on my hair. Man was I wrong! It may be thinner, but it is far more moisturizing than the other products too. Crazy right! I think this makes this deep conditioner great for all hair types, whether thin or thick it will work just as well.

The SCENT!!! Okay lets just say I loved this scent so much that I went and ordered the body butter, body wash and the damn hand cream in this line too! YES it’s that good! I’m terrible at describing scents but as soon as I opened the jar and got a good whiff of the scent, it was everything I loved and more!

I also really love the packaging of this particular line from Shea Moisture because it has a very luxe look and feel. The jars and bottles are darker in color and they all have a signature gold lid, making the line appear way more high end than drugstore.

The masque gives loads of slip, leaves my hair popping and ultra shiny and it feels unbelievably freakn’ soft! This masque is everything that you would expect from an intense hydrating deep conditioner and much more. Whoever developed the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Masque clearly made it from ‘sugar, spice, and everything nice’ and then accidentally spilled a mysterious substance called ‘Chemical X’ into the mixture, creating the perfect deep treatment masque. Can you tell I once was a huge fan of the Powerpuff Girls haha! Don’t Judge…

Well that’s all my hunniez! Leave a comment below if you have tried this deep treatment masque and what your thoughts were. If you’ve never tried this conditioner all I can say it go out and BUY IT and TRY IT!!! & while your at it, also tell every natural hair gal in your life to go try it too because this right here is HOLY GRAIL!

    I got this masque along with the shampoo and conditioner about 2 weeks agai and I love the collection. The shampoo is beyond amazing. I used too much and thought my hair would be stripped because of how much I used and instead it moisturized my hair very well. It is also a detangling shampoo. I mean I thought I was using conditioner and I’m sure it was because honey is a key ingredient. The conditioner had good slip and was packed with mousturizing goodness. And the masque was AMAZING. Slip was A1, moisture was out of this world. Overall I love this line. It’s become my winter care regimen.
