SHEA MOISTURE FOR SUMMER 2014

Thanks to the lovely people at Shea Moisture who were kind enough to gift me this amazing bundle of hair and body products from their various ranges; THIS is how I plan to see out the rest of Summer!
In the 3 and a bit years that've been natural, I quickly discovered that Shea Moisture is one of the most popular brands for natural hair. With that in mind, I'm sure you'll understand just how excited I am about recieving these products.
However, for those of us here in the UK it hasn't always been easy to get a hold of, and when we could find it, it was pretty pricey.
Nowadays it's not so bad. You can find Shea Moisture in most Black hair shops in London, at least (read here), and the price is bit better than it used to be.
As someone who's trying to avoid silicones, as well as a few other ingredients, it can be quite a challenge to find a good quality, decently priced product (particularly in the case of conditioners), but Shea Moisture is one of the main brands responding to the demand.

I've only ever dabbled with a couple of Shea Moisture products. Mainly the African Black Soap Balancing Conditioner. For some reason it completely disagreed with my hair and wasn't the fabulous experience I'd heard so much about. 
A number of people reassured me that the right Shea Moisture product/range for my hair is out there so I'm looking forward to trying the selection; especially the ever popular Coconut & Hibiscus range.
I'm also looking forward to trying out the different range of body products, especially the baby lotions that I can already tell you, smell incredibly good.

So, roll on the rest of Summer!
