Hi Loves, welcome back to my blog. Shea Moisture sent me some products from their Jamaican Black Castor Oil range. I use the Leave-in Conditioner in this range and I love it so much, it is an holy grail for me. Seeing how much I love the Leave-in, I was so excited to try the shampoo and other products out. Today, I will be reviewing the “SHEA MOISTURE JAMAICAN BLACK CASTOR OIL STRENGTHEN & RESTORE SHAMPOO WITH PEPPERMINT & APPLE CIDER VINEGAR”. Long name I know, LOL. To know how I feel about it, keep reading.

 Shea Moisture Claim: This Sulfate-free, clarifying shampoo removes buildup, while infusing hair with moisture. Perfect for those who regularly color, straighten, perm, or heat style their hair, as well as kinky, curly or wavy natural styles. Formulated with Jamaican Black Castor Oil and certified organic Shea Butter to encourage hair to grow longer by nourishing and strengthening damaged or chemically processed hair, reducing the appearance of breakage and shedding. Apple Cider Vinegar aids in regulating and balancing pH levels on the scalp, while softening hair to promote enhanced growth.

 Ingredients: The main ingredients are Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Shea Butter,  Peppermint and Apple Cider Vinegar.

How to Use: Apply to wet hair, gently massage from root to ends. Rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.

Price: is £10.99 – £12.99. You can watch out for when it is on sale for buy one get one half price at Boots or £7.34 at Superdrug (currently on). Look fantastic also stock Shea Moisture products.


  •  Packaging: it is packed in a clear cylindrical bottle, this makes it easy to see through the product to know how much used or left. It also makes it easy to hold in the shower without it slipping away. It has a flip-flop lid making dispensing it onto palm(s), hair and scalp easy.

  • Consistency: It has a liquidy consistensy. It lathers so well when applied to wet hair. If you are not careful with this product,  your whole bath will be filled with soap lather, take it from me, a little really goes a long way.

  • Scent: its scent is so similar to the leave-in but milder. Very nice perfumey smell that doesn’t linger.
  • This shampoo is a good,clarifying and inexpensive one, I really love it. It cleanse my hair without stripping it of its oils and moisture. My scalp felt so soft and squeaky clean after use. I love it more because of its ingredients which are Jamaican Black Castor Oil which repairs and strengthen hair; Peppermint, stimulate the scalp, promoting hair growth and Apple Cider Vinegar that regulates hair pH level and enhance hair growth. Although,  it contains peppermint, it didn’t feel tingly on my scalp.

Verdict: Overall, I love this shampoo, from its scent, how it cleanse my hair, made my scalp feel and its ingredients. I am giving it a score of 5/5 because I can’t think of any cons.

Note: I always pre-poo my hair before shampooing.

    It was such a wonderful article dear and from my side I want to say that i am using jamaican black castor oil from long and its really effective. SheaMoisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Loc & Braid Butter makes your curls and coils so irresistibly soft and smooth that you will want to touch them again and again.

    • I haven’t tried the LOC & Braid butter, it is not available in the UK yet. I will try it out once I can get my hands on it. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and your support ❤❤❤

  • I just ordered this and can’t wait to try it out. I’m hoping it helps my hair grow.

  • I myself am awaiting this product to come in the mail, cant wait to try. I have already tried this one with the Shea butter, JBCO and ACV. I want to see if there is a difference between the two. Can I share this post?

  • I can imagine too and the inflation also wouldn’t help. I’ll appreciate it. Thanks for your usual support. Thanks for stopping by my blog ❤ ❤

  • Usually sulfate free shampoos make my hair look more oily and limp :(. Did you have an issue with that with this product?

    • No, I don’t. It didn’t make my hair oily. It is a clarifying shampoo. Thank for stopping by my blog ❤ ❤

  • Yeah do, it’s good. Thanks for stopping by my blog ❤❤❤
