Natural Hair Transition Update & Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie Review

For those who are do not know, I have been transitioning back to my natural hair for some months now, and my hair is almost at the texture I need it to be. My hair is now completely natural, with a few dead textured ends here and there, which I trim off regularly. I didn’t go for the whole ‘big chop’ because I wasn’t comfortable cutting my hair that low, and I am happy I doing it this way, although my transition is taking longer because of it.

I have been on the lookout for a curl enhancing hair product to bring my curls back to life, so I was very happy to try this Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie when my hair stylist introduced it to me.

 

 

I have used this on my hair and my daughter’s hair for some weeks now, and I love it!

Here is the product description –

SheaMoisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie is enriched with natural ingredients to give you soft, silky and defined curls! Enriched with certified organic Shea Butter, this conditioning enhancing smoothie smooths split ends and tames stray flyaways to transition damaged, over-processed hair to gloriously shiny, bouncy curls!
SheaMoisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie is an all-natural leave on styling cream specially formulated for wavy, curly hair. Coconut oil used in this moisturizing formula hydrates and protects hair against breakage while replenishing lost oils. Neem Oil imparts brilliant shine and adds volume and definition to dull, lifeless curls and coils. This enhancing smoothie bottles in the benefits of Silk Protein, an important ingredient that softens unruly locks making them irresistibly smooth and easy to manage.

Natural Hair Transition Almost Complete

So for those who do not know, I decided to stop applying relaxers or chemicals to my hair, and let it grow naturally instead. I made this decision because I was tired of how unhealthy my hair. It was in a terrible state, with severe breakage and no edges, and that was because I was not giving my hair the care it needed to strive. I have neglected my hair over the years by not applying the right daily treatment, and just burying it under one weave or another. It got to a point, it became too embarrassing to show off my natural hair even at the hair dressing salon, because the hair stylists would always have a rude comment to make about how badly my hair was breaking. Like it was not partly their fault, lol.

I took this photos some days ago and I am very impressed with how healthy my hair is looking. I honestly cannot remember when last my hair was this healthy. My edges are back and kicking, my hair is super thick and strong. There has been very little shredding since I took my cornrows out (I usually have my hair in cornrows). And the only way for my natural hair seems to be up!

I didn’t do the “big chop” because I didn’t want to drastically get rid of the relaxed ends. However I plan to trim off the ends in the next few days. And I see my hair going fully natural in the next 3 months at the latest.

I am very happy with my current hair routine. I think it is working great for my hair. I treat my hair daily with Almond Oil and water in my spray bottle. I apply African Pride Shea Butter Miracle Moisture Intense Leave-in conditioner every other day. I wash my hair with Shea Butter Moisture Shampoo and Restorative Conditioner once a week when I take off my cornrows. I also use the Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque once in 4 weeks. I also apply TTT4Z Hair Food every other day for extra nourishment.

My daughter also has the same hair routine I have, and her beautiful curly hair is how my hair was at her age; how I want it to be now. Her hair is another reason why I went natural. It brought back lovely memories. Hair goals all the way!
