With the turn of the season, hair can sometimes be prone to dryness. Products that are conditioning and repairing are a must for healthy hair this winter. Can Palmers Shea Formula come to the rescue?
Co-editor Yvonne Twesigomwe reviews the new Palmers Shea Formula Curl Repair
HOW I USED THEM:
Shea Formula Curl Repair Moisture Shampoo:
I started off by rinsing my hair with warm water thoroughly before lightly shampooing the scalp. I repeated this step to ensure my hair was clean - the Moisture Shampoo has a surprisingly good amount of slip so I needed to give my hair an extra rinse.
Shea Formula Curl Repair Moisture Conditioner: Next it was time to give my hair a deep conditioning treatment. For this I mixed the Shea Formula Repairing Conditioner with half of my usual deep conditioner of choice; the Palmers Coconut Oil Protein pack. I evenly distributed the mix whilst finger detangling through from the root to the tip. In order for my hair to really benefit from the conditioning treatment, I covered my hair with a shower cap for about an hour before rinsing it out.
Shea Formula Curl Repair Whipped Cream:
To finish up, I used the Whipped cream to complete my go-to protective style (a flat twist) and air dried my hair. I sprayed Palmers Coconut Oil Formula leave-in conditioner (another favourite of mine) to give my hair an extra hydration boost. I tend to use this particular product every other day to keep my hair topped up on moisture.
The hero ingredient is Shea butter which is ideal for deep conditioning and reducing dandruff ( to name a few of the benefits). The other noteworthy ingredient within these products is Argon oil which also helps to retain moisture.
These products were easy to use and to combine with my usual haircare products of choice. I was particularly impressed with the conditioning treatment; my hair felt soft, manageable and had a noticeable sheen.
I especially enjoyed how easy it was to detangle my hair in considerably larger sections than my usual need to comb my hair in smaller sections. Styling also seemed to take less time to do, which I think could be attributed to the products as well.

3 tips on finding hair care products that work for you
1. Don't over do it. We know it's exciting when you get to try something new but try not to use too many products all at once.
2. Try products for at least three months before you give up, your hair needs to get used to them - consistency pays off!
3. There is nothing wrong with mixing and matching, however this can result in overlapping ingredients. Be mindful of products that contain protein because too much applied to the hair could cause breakage. Why not try a range from one brand before you start the mix and match process - most brands create their range of products with formulas that complement each other.
