I have super thick, curly hair and the one thing I’ve learned about making it look and feel its best is that I need to use a lot of product. As such, build-up is a real issue for me. Even though I wash my hair 2-3 per week, I still often find myself with flakes on my scalp.
Thanks to Google, I soon learned that product build-up was likely the cause of my flaky scalp, so I invested in a really great clarifying shampoo. The problem? It leaves my hair so dry. For a few weeks, I was stuck in this cycle of using a clarifying shampoo to cleanse my scalp, only to slather my hair in conditioner and leave-in products to replenish moisture. It wasn’t working.
Then I decided to try SheaMoisture’s African Black Soap & Bamboo Charcoal Purification Masque. Game-changer! My hair and scalp were saved. This super rich hair masque is the perfect follow up after a clarifying shampoo because it’s formulated to re-hydrate the hair, while also still working to keep the scalp clean and free of build-up. The combination of African Black Soap, Bamboo Charcoal, Tea Tree Oil really works to absorb excess oil, lift impurities and strip away product build-up so my scalp always feel super clean. Even better, these powerful ingredients also deliver the much-needed moisture my curls need to stay bouncy, soft and frizz-free. I’ve been using this masque for about a month now and I’m completely addicted.
There’s actually a complete African Black Soap & Bamboo Charcoal product line by SheaMoisture, but for me, the highlight is definitely this masque because it really does address the flakiness of my scalp, while also keeping my hair healthy and hydrated.
