Yesterday Nikisha and I were cordially invited by Shea Moisture to attend their “Editor’s Meet & Greet” held at the Shea Moisture holiday shop located in Bryant Park yesterday. I had the chance to meet some of the amazing Shea Moisture team and do a little complimentary holiday shopping courtesy of Shea Moisture who were gifting selected Editors some of their favorite products…and yes I did say complimentary, let’s just say Christmas came early!
Unfortunately since Nikisha’s relocation she was not able to attend but as some of you may well know Shea Moisture has been a staple product implemented in her hair regimen for quite some time and she has had nothing but the highest accolades for Shea Moisture products, but as familiar as we are with their organic hair products some of you may not know Shea Moisture begin as an organic body and bath care line.
Founded in 1912, Shea Moisture products pioneered the market in the United States by incorporating shea butter as their principal ingredient. Not only has this major brand cornered the market regarding shea butter as a staple ingredient but another reason well actually couple of reasons why they have become so loved and highly adored is the organic factor, affordability and results. Yes, sometimes organic and affordability don’t go hand in hand but in this case it’s two peas in a pod, and if this sounds a little too good too good to be true then let me cloud your mind even more because these products are free of:
- Propylene Glycol
- Mineral Oil
- Synthetic Fragrance
- Animal Testing
- Synthetic Color
- Animal Ingredients
Yes you heard correct, Shea Moisture products excludes all of the previously listed above from their ingredients to provide us with healthy options for our hair and body.
Not only did I get to meet some of the Shea Moisture team which included Melissa Miller from Sundial Creations (responsible for creating some of the” most successful and innovative natural personal care products including the Shea Moisture Brand) and Shea Moisture’s Social Media Manager, Shondell Harris but celebrity Hair Stylist Dianne C Bailey was in the house. For those of you who are not familiar with Bailey this woman has been on the natural hair scene before people dubbed this movement a “trend”. Natural for 23 years this author, natural hair expert, consultant, founder of Tendrils Hair Spa and “Mommy and Me” Natural Hair Care Workshop has been inspiring the natural hair community for decades, transforming the “movement” into a lifestyle.
After I chatted with Bailey on the science of hair I walked around the shop and couldn’t help but notice the plethora of organic bath and body products such as my all-time favorites like the “African Black Soap” w/Shea Butter , “Raw Shea Butter Lotion” w/ Frankincense & Myrrh and “Coconut & Hibiscus” Shea Butter lotion w/Songyi Mushroom (a heavenly scent) but also took note of the unfamiliar such as their “Organic Red Bush & Sage Shea Butter Soap” w/Egyptian Musk and “Organic Lemongrass & Ginger Body Scrub” w/Orange Peel (which by the way smells absolutely DIVINE). Some of these of course may be familiar to you but something I was completely surprised by is that they have a new line of products for men pertaining to all of their shaving & grooming needs, as well as for your little ones, proving Shea Moisture literally is for everyone.
To sum up the experience I had a fantastic time meeting the wonderful Shea Moisture team and I am really excited to prepare some reviews for all of you on their body and bath care line.
