SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Hair Masque

I love trying new products. Especially products that are new to the market. So I was excited to try out two products in the SheaMoisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil line. One was the shampoo the other the Intensive Hydration Masque.

The two times I used the SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Masque my hair didn't like it or respond well to it (see my first impressions video). The first time I used it per the instructions applying it to clean, wet hair. The second time I used it on dry hair as a pre-poo like I do my go-to deep conditioner. Just like the shampoo it messed with my moisture levels so no matter how much moisturizing and sealing I did during the week my hair felt dry.

Same as the shampoo the smell of the hair masque is rich and musky. The texture is thick like a putty. I could hold the container upside down and nothing fell out. It also feels dry and has no slip.

The SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Masque will not be making it's way into my regimen and I wouldn't recommend it. In fact I haven't touched it since my second use of it. It's not moisturizing for my hair and seems to draw out or block moisture.
