Product Review – Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Transitioning Milk

Hey my precious lovelies, I am back again with another quick review. I have been loving the Shea Moisture line recently because of the fact that it is a more natural product. I also like the scent of most of the line so far, of course some better than others. My hair is currently 10 weeks post and at about the 8 weeks mark it starts getting more tangled and drier. I then decided to try the Shea Moisture Transitioning Milk on my hair to see how it will respond on my 10 weeks post hair.

It is described on the bottle as Shea Moisture's Raw Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Transitioning Milk for dry, damaged hair which strengthens as it promotes healthy growth while transitioning chemically treated hair to natural healthy hair. It also smoothes the hair and restores brilliant shine.

The directions on the bottle are – Apply as a non-rinse moisturiser and styling cream to damp, towel-dried hair as needed.

It contains all natural ingredients such as Deionized Water, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Sugar Starch, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat Germ) Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Essential Oil Blend, Algae Extract, Panthenol, Hyssopus Officinalis Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf and Equisetum Arvense Extract, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Caprylul Glycol, Topopherol (Vitamin E).

It is a very moisturising product and literally makes your hair feel so soft/supple and extra moisturised - I must say naming it Extra-Moisture Transitioning Milk is apt. It is definitely more moisturising than the Shea Moisture Curl & Style Milk.

It can be used on all sorts of hair and not only transitioning hair so if you are natural or stretching your relaxer, or you have dry hair or texlaxed hair this product will work for you. I was a bit hesitant to try this product out at first because of the tag “transitioning milk”.

It contains all natural ingredients.

I like the fact it comes in a bottle so I do not need to dip my fingers into the product.

It allows for easier detangling and makes you hair more manageable.


It is quite expensive and the name “transitioning milk” might be misleading preventing those who are not transitioning from trying the product.

It is not readily available in Nigeria. You can however buy it at hair products shops and also online try

It does not have the best smell compared to the other products in the Shea Moisture Line.

Rating 5/5 (Excellent)

What is your experience with this product or other products in the Shea Moisture line? Are there other Shea Moisture products you would recommend?

My Church Bun

Apologies my loves I know it’s been a minute however I meant it when I said I intended to do more frequent posts and to ensure that I am update this blog more often.

I decided to share with you a picture of the bun I wore to church a few Sundays ago. If you have been subscribed to this blog for some time you would know I like to refer to myself as the Queen of Buns. I love full buns using my natural hair so I am working my way back to a fuller bun after my hair cut/trim. This has been the result so far and I am loving it.

If you would like a tutorial for this hairstyle you can refer to my earlier post here. This bun can be worn by people with all hair types as long as you have some length and fullness (although results are likely to vary). If you are able to replicate this hairstyle do share pictures on our facebook page or by sending an email to

I am still making sure to stick to the rules of my personal hair growth challenge. I look forward to sharing the results with you all when I get my hair relaxed/retouched. I am currently about 10 weeks post relaxer, so that means I should be back with the results for the hair growth challenge pretty soon as I do not intend to stretch my relaxer past 14 weeks. Do not forget that you can follow the rules of the hair growth challenge yourself to encourage your own hair to grow.

Until my next post darlings,
