Deep Treatment MasqueThis styling cream is one that can be used daily without the scare of product build-up. You don’t need a lot of product to get results from your hair, at least Jazzy doesn’t think so, only a dab and I’ve always been in business.

    Great review Diana…. I love Shea Moisture’s products.. and I use them on my hair and my girls too.

    This was awesome. I am a die hard Shea Moisture fan. I love their Raw Shea Butter Line (gold) and the African Black Soap Line (black) the most. The new Manuka Honey one is also really nice… But I swear the Purification Masque in the African Black Soap line is the truth, the way, and the light…

    • Thanks so much for reading Butterfly..:) truly appreciate you. We hold many of the same feelings.. the way and the light..:)
