It smells like

Final opinion
I like the hair masque a lot, cause I wanted to make my own hair mask of rhassoul. Rhassoul is great way to remove build up from you hair without drying it out. I used it on wet hair while the ACV is still in my hair. Then I cover my hair with a plastic cap for 45 minutes and then rinse it out. My hair felt soft and my curls were defined. AMAZING! I will defintely use this for my staple.

What’s in it
Raw organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Marshmallow root, Horsetail, Coltsfoot, Nettle, Burdock root, Sweet orange essential oil

It smells like
orange, vinegar, apple

Final opinion
I love the apple cider vinegar. I dilute 1 Tbsp of the ACV into a bottle of water and use it for my scalp. It removes build up and makes my hair really soft. The bottle says no need to rinse afterwards, cause the smell of vinegar will dissipate once hair is dry. I used it as a deep conditioner in combination with the hair mask, so I rinsed it out. Love it and this will be a new staple product!

This pomade gives my hair a shine. I use a little bit because of the strong fragance. You can use it on damp hair to twist or braid your hair. On dry hair it gives a great shine.

Final opinion

My curls are defined with this conditioner. I have to get used to the strong fragance. For a conditioner I don’t really like the smell.But maybe you like it. The conditioner is white and is as thick as the shampoo. This conditioner contains Shea Butter and pumpkin seed oil to nourishes your hair. After co-washing my hair I use coconut oil to seal my hair. It is a good detangler and also good twists and it gives my hair a shine.

Final opinion

Actually I use no gel for my hair, but I was curious. It is made from flaxseed and it contains no alcohol. I used it  with the hair​​butter to twist my hair. This gel is watery and has no strong hold. It does not do much for my hair. It gave my hair a slight crunch, but I would not use it easily.

Final opinion

It is a cream to stretch your hair. It would be an opposite effect on style or curly hair. For curly hair it would stretch your hair and with style hair  wavy hair. My hair shrinks so the effect of this product is minimum. The shape shifter defines my curls and gives my hair a shine.

Final opinion

This product can be used for a pre-poo treatment. First I divided my hair into four sections and applied the product to dry hair. Then I used a plastic wrap for my hair. It is a thick substance and has a strong fragance. My hair feels soft, but I will not easily use this product with the smell and the substance. I would rather use a pure oil.

This product gives my hair bling bling. The pomade is yellow and greasy but I like that it has a citrus fragrance. It has the best fragrance of the Original Moxie products. But I prefer to use jojoba or coconut oil to give my hair a shine.

Final opinion

I got it as a present, very thoughtful and sweet. I’ve never heard of it before. The bottle looks very elegant and it’s made of glass. This oil smells great, it’s thick and it contains argan, cyprus and flexseed oil. Love that! I used it for my twists and it gave my hair a shine. Currently I am using a bit in my oil mixture, because of the nourishing oils. But I’m not so keen on the ingredients, because they got non-soluble silicones in it.

It smells like

 green tea, herbs, It’s not my favorite smell.

Final opinion

This is actually my first shampoo that I’m using during my natural hair journey. It is a clarifying shampoo that gets rid of all the residue buildup from all the products in your hair. It definitely cleanse my hair and scalp. My hair feels dry after I’m using it, but if you pre-poo your hair before with coconut oil it feels not so dry at all. And using a conditioner afterwards reversed the dryness too.

It smells like

very organic, the smell is okay, but I had to get used to it.

Final opinion

I really like it. It detangles my hair and my curls are popping. I love the substance, it’s thick. The bottles of SheaDo are hard and you have to squeeze to get some conditioner out. At first I didn’t like that, but it’s actually a good thing for me because otherwise I will empty the bottle immediately and have to buy a new one and it’s expensive so I save money. I will keep using this product, because the ingredients are natural. I always remember what you can’t pronounce it will do no good for your hair. I really liked that the SheaDo products describe what the function is of each ingredient.
