For many months now I’ve been testing the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil line. I tested it longer than usual because I want to see if the allure wore off for me. The HAIR line (there’s a skin care line too) includes a shampoo, conditioner, masque and hair serum.
The Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil collection was hand-picked by Target for the Made To Matter Campaign that fights poverty. Made to Matter is a curated collection that features leading natural, organic and sustainable brands that are better for you, your family and the environment. The Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil hair and body collections will be sold exclusively at select Target stores and SheaMoisture.com. Ten percent of Community Commerce sales go to women-led businesses, to support communities that supply ingredients for SheaMoisture’s products, or support The Sofi Tucker Foundation, a non-profit established by the brand.
Each product in the collection contains certified organic Shea Butter ethically sourced from women’s co-ops in Northern Ghana, Manuka Honey, Mafura and Baobab Oils, and African Rock Fig. Those ingredients include:
- Manuka Honey – Anti-inflammatory properties smooth hair. Helps create a moisturizing barrier to rehydrate hair.
- Mafura Oil – High level of beneficial oleic acid helps replenish oils stripped from hair.
- African Rock Fig – Contains antioxidant Vitamin C, which helps keep hair looking vibrant.
MANUKA HONEY & MAFURA OIL INTENSIVE HYDRATION SHAMPOO- 13 oz for $10.99
I love this shampoo. It’s sulfate-free and cleanses while moisturizing. I usual co-wash but I’m comfortable with using this shampoo every time I wash my hair. My hair doesn’t feel dry or stripped.
MANUKA HONEY & MAFURA OIL INTENSIVE HYDRATION CONDITIONER- 13 oz for $10.99
The conditioner is good for softening and detangling my hair. It’s not the best detangler I used but it’s a good conditioner overall. I follow-up with deep conditioning masque.
MANUKA HONEY & MAFURA OIL INTENSIVE HYDRATION MASQUE- 12 oz for $12.99
This is an intense conditioning deep treatment. It gives me everything I want in a masque. For you curl popping divas, I got curl definition but I wasn’t wowed. I normally wear my natural hair in protective styles anyway so it didn’t bother me. Plus everyone is different so you might have a different experience.
MANUKA HONEY & MAFURA OIL INTENSIVE HYDRATION COMPLEX- 2 oz for $10.99
This is actually my favorite out of the entire collection. I use it as a pre-wash treatment and once a week. It comes with a dropper and I just put it directly in my hair and massage it in. It’s not greasy at all. It’s made to encourage a healthy scalp and improves hair elasticity while promoting growth.
The collection is sulfate and silicone free which is exactly what I like. The scent is amazingly rich with strong honey and fig notes. I love how soft my hair is after using it. This collection gets an A from me because it’s the only hair collection where I can use the full line. Normally you use this brand for a shampoo, that brand for a conditioner then another brand for treatments and so on… This Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil line a one stop shop. I love it so much. When I polled my followers on their favorite Shea Moisture line, 90% said the Manuka Honey. This is a favorite for the masses. The only thing I don’t like is that it’s a Target exclusive and they rarely have BOGO sales like other retailers. Even with that said, the entire collection is worth the money.
