Shea Moisture has become a much loved all-natural line with products for hair, body, and face. They have blossomed into a massive and relevant company that many Naturals have heard of or tried. Earlier this year they launched a hair coloring system that made me happy since I had been too scared to try traditional dyes or henna. My distrust of either left me feeling I was never going to be able to dye my hair and a hair lightening recipe I tried didn't work for me.
Well, if you are like me you haven't colored your hair using those harsher products that contain ammonia and you didn't want to fool around with Henna. The only other option was using DIY hair lightening recipes that did not always work. When Shea Moisture introduced this product I was tickled pink and felt finally ready to color my hair. No, it's not all-natural ingredients in their color line system but it was less harmful than regular dyes.
SheaMoisture is a groundbreaking natural haircare line that is redefining the art of hair color.

I already have fallen in love with many of their hair products and was ready to try the color. This is not my first time using this hair color line but first time doing a review of it. I chose Dark Golden Blond because I'm not a fan of reds but wanted a really light brown color. I have dark brown hair which to me is pretty boring so a lighter color in the Summer sounded like fun.
They have cute boxes along with beautiful bags that hold everything you need to get started. There is more than enough color as well as shampoo, conditioner and elixir so whether you have short or long hair you should be good to go with just the one box.
I'm not a big hair person. Never colored my hair myself nor permed it so my sister graciously agreed to do it for me. Here's a pic of my hair prior to the new color. Now remember my hair was colored a few months ago using this system but I used a darker color than the one I used this time.
Hopefully you can see the roots as it was time for me to color it again. I also have a few grays popping up in the front but they aren't too much of a nuisance. One of my biggest concerns using this product was my hair texture changing or the dye damaging my hair. Yes, I wanted color but I didn't want to pay the ultimate price for it.Here we go!
I have never in my life fell in love with a hair color line but I have to say this is one to fall in love with!!! My hair felt SOFTER after it was finished. I already use the line they supply to shampoo and condition freshly dyed hair and I have been in love with that elixir for a minute!! They give you more than enough but I have to say those bottle are hard to squeeze to get the product out. That would have to be my only complaint.
The color was gorgeous and I'm happy but I must share that they do not recommend going more than two shades lighter or darker. Since it didn't have ammonia I was worried I would not get a true color but that was no longer a concern. My hair is lighter that it was the first time I colored it and that was a little jarring at first but now that the dust has settled I'm really happy.
Before and after
Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures but there is a huge change in my color and I'm happy with it. My hair has not changed in texture nor does it feel hard. I attribute that to Shea Moisture's wonderful products. My sister has used this line along with my daughter. We are all very happy with this product and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want the harsh chemicals in traditional dyes or who doesn't want to fool with Henna.
