Review | Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo

Hello everyone! Today was a normal day, so I went out and hung out at the nearby Town Center. I managed to catch up on some reading, look around in a few of my favorite shops and gain plenty of exercise for my petite frame by walking around instead of driving!

Even better, I also managed to include more water drinking into my routine and find some loose change on the ground. How’s that for a normal, healthy day?

I can tell you all about what I did today, but that’s not why I’m here writing this. I’m here because I have another product review for you!

Yes, it will be on another Shea Moisture product, but on one from the Jamaican Black Castor Oil line. This here is the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo and it can be found at select Target stores, Ulta Beauty and Sally’s Beauty Supply for around $10.99 – $11.99!

I saw this shampoo at one of the Sally’s stores in my area. I’ve heard mediocre to wonderful reviews for it and I would always see this stuff sold out or down to the last bottle. Plus, it had one of my favorite oils to use on my hair: Jamaican black castor oil! So, I decided to buy it and try it out.

Also, my mother had thining, relaxed hair under her wigs and I thought that this shampoo would be great for her to use. Of course I was going to test it out first before giving it to her. . .*wink*

I used this shampoo a couple of times and I must say, it’s a pretty good shampoo! It’s toted as a gentle clarifying shampoo that moisturizes as well (which seems kind of ironic if you ask me. . .) and it did just that! After the first two times I used it, my hair and scalp felt clean without stiffness and dryness.

But the third time I washed my hair with this, it’s almost as if my hair had suddenly gotten used to the shampoo and the product’s effects didn’t work anymore. To further explain, the shampoo went from being oh-so effective to “meh, this isn’t much different than any other sulfate-free shampoo.”

It’s as if the specific ingredients stopped working. I’m not sure what happened, but the shampoo gets my scalp and hair clean and that’s what matters the most to me.

It also claims to help repair damage and encourage hair growth due to the shea butter and Jamaican black castor oil. I can’t really speak on that issue since my hair isn’t damaged badly, but it may be useful for people with severely damaged hair.

All in all, it’s a good shampoo for my monthly shampoo washes! I might not purchase it again because there is another shampoo from Shea Moisture that I want to try next. This shampoo may be good for you if you have damaged hair, you put your hair through the most extensive chemical treatments or even if you just love shea butter and Jamaican black castor oil!

Until next post, everyone! It’s time for me to rest for next week’s classes!
