The Exchange Rate: Shea Moisture

I've been sitting on this review since mid march after my friend brought me back some Shea Moisture products from LA, I've been procrastinating, not because it was bad but because I was at a loss to think of anything that hasn't already been said about Shea Moisture products and their greatness! I mean Natural Ingredients, no parabens or silicones, cruelty free......GREATNESS!   
My friend told tell me that Shea Moisture, to our US cousins was like Tresmme! So basically its available everywhere and it's affordable Here was me thinking that like Carols Daughter or Miss Jessies, that Shea Moisture was of the 'you can get it in the UK but ya'll better be ready to pay!' variety. 
I didn't even give my girlfriend a list I just said bring me back ANYTHING! the girl did good! 

I got the Moisture Retention Shampoo, the Restorative Conditioner and Deep Treatment Mask all for dry damaged hair with Sea Kelp and Argon Oil. The stand out product for me is the Masque, I love a multi tasking product and though it hailed as a wash out masque, I've used it as a pre poo, a masque, a conditioner and a sealant! this stuff is good!  the Argon Oil helps to improve hairs elasticity and the Sea Kelp detoxifies hair. The shampoo is good as it gives enough slip that you could de tangle hair with it. The Leave in conditioner is my least favourite, it not bad it's just a little thin for my liking......So yeah I'm on the Shea Moisture bandwagon and when my masque runs out I'll be willing to pay the UK price to get my hands on it! (Shea Moisture is around $10 in the US which is just over £6 in the UK but being sold from around £12!)  UK stockists
