Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Hair Masque ~ Product Review!

Calling All Naturals w/ Curls, Coils & Kinks


This product couldn’t have come knocking on my door at a better time as my hubby and I just made the BIG move to the east coast! Rain, cold and a very popular moisture packed masque sounds like nothing short of a great recipe for my tired, thirsty curls. I am sure many of you are familiar with not only this masque but the Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Line as a whole. This masque comes highly recommended so I expected nothing short of a miracle in a jar from this product. I was so excited to not only try this product due to all the hype but also my curls needed to be rescued from the dry desert and given a moisture packed boost. Did this masque provide that or just pure disappointment?


Despite being housed in temporary housing until we purchase our home I still was determined to have a successful wash day! First let me explain why this product has been a staple product for many naturals. This masque is housed in a 12 fl. oz. jar for easy access and retails for about $11.99 which is usually on sale somewhere in the world. Packed with a vast amount of moisturizing ingredients like Manuka Honey, Mafura Oil, and African Rock Fig help make this masque a popular favorite. The masque claims it’s an intensely conditioning deep treatment with a powerful dose of moisture and nutrients. If you are looking to moisturize your tresses, lock in moisture, smooth and fortify your follicles for stronger, healthier frizz free hair then this product claims to look no further. As always anytime you are able to purchase an item and give back at the same time it’s a beautiful thing as when you purchase a product from this line 10% of your purchase goes to help fight poverty. Bravo!


So as I began to do my happy dance as I was about to finally try this so talked about masque I was greeted with a very familiar smell. I have used other products from this line and they all have the same clinical very clean smell. The smell isn’t too strong but smells more masculine which I don’t mind at all. The thick consistency was very noticeable as I applied this product all over. This masque is NOT a full of slip masque so if you are looking for a masque with detangling properties this is NOT the one. However, I didn’t have any problems working the masque thoroughly through my hair. Even though the masque was thick in texture it seemed to amazingly melt perfectly into my curls. I noticed to the touch before even deep conditioning this masque already didn’t disappoint on the moisture level as I could feel it by touch. As soon as I worked the masque all over evenly coating my entire head I am grabbed my deep conditioning cap and let it sit for 30 min! As my hair began to soak up all of this masque I was left with thoughts would this masque work well for me?


FINAL THOUGHTS: Yes! When I rinsed the masque out my hair oh lalala! I was met with super moisturized and plump curls. Talk about curl definition… it was like my curls were brought back to life. They were so happy and felt so silky to the touch. This thick masque not only rinsed out super easily but left my hair soft, silky, moisturized, curls defined, shiny, and frizz free! Any time you can get your frizz to act right you know you hit the jackpot. You are welcome curls – lol! I was very happy to know that it wasn’t just a bunch of hype but true results helped make this masque a success. I would highly recommend this masque and will definitely add this masque to the rotation. This masque not only hit on all the points they claimed it would but exceeded my expectations. Although I have had huge success with majority of the SM masques they are each unique and provide such different yet awesome results. I hope I have opened your eyes with this popular product and encouraged you to pamper your hair. Don’t be afraid to venture out there and try something new and in return you may experience new insight and success. Have fun with testing out new products and do your research first for your texture of hair to help alleviate buyers remorse . Buy what you need and the rest will follow. As always thank you for reading and until next time – Chow! ♥

    I tried this masque years ago and did not like it but I recently decided to revisit it and I absolutely LOVE IT!!! I also have the conditioner. The shampoo doesn’t work well on my hair but I may revisit.

    A friend brought it to my house for me to try. When I opened it the smell blew me away. Smells like perfume. I did not try it.
