One day I was on Twitter minding my business when someone retweeted a natural-haired chica in my timeline. She was recommending the Every Strand Shea and Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner for natural hair with rave reviews.

I decided to click through to see more of what was being said. Particularly because the reviewer’s hair type looked similar to mine. I had gotten lazy to continue making my usual homemade deep conditioner which lead to my hair being dry and thirsty from neglect.
Therefore I decided it may be well to check out this Every Strand product to add to my arsenal and hopefully it would bring my curls to life.
Every Strand Shea and Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner
The Every Strand Shea and Coconut Deep Moist Hair Masque is formulated to provide deep moisture to curly hair with an afro texture. The product is enriched with shea butter and coconut oil, both of which are known for their nourishing and moisturizing properties.
Shea butter is an excellent natural moisturizer that contains fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants that help to nourish and protect the hair. It is also known to reduce inflammation and soothe the scalp, which can help to promote healthy hair growth.
Coconut oil is another excellent natural moisturizer that helps to prevent protein loss in the hair, which can lead to dryness and breakage. It also contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties that can help to fight scalp infections and dandruff.
In addition to shea butter and coconut oil, the Every Strand Shea and Coconut Deep Moist Hair Masque also contains other beneficial ingredients such as argan oil, which helps to soften and nourish the hair, and panthenol, which helps to strengthen and protect the hair from damage.
Overall, the Every Strand Shea and Coconut Deep Moist Hair Masque seemed like a great option for those with curly hair and an afro texture who are looking for a deep moisturizing treatment. The combination of shea butter, coconut oil, and other beneficial ingredients work together to provide intense hydration, nourishment, and protection to the hair.
So I took the plunge and bought it from Amazon here. Normally I avoid products with coconut oil as this ingredient causes cystic acne on my face. I didn’t mind that it was in this product however since it is a washout product, i.e. won’t be staying in my hair as any type of leave-in.
I could, therefore, stand to benefit from coconut oil’s good properties and then wash it out and style it with my favourite sans coconut oil products. This was the first time I used the product. I was also washing out a blowout and flat iron so you can see my hair at the front is a little more stretched than usual.
Looks good and healthy right? This product is rich and creamy, thick enough to be applied without a lot of slippery dripping messes. When using, I apply it to my dry hair, cover it with a plastic baggie, and then my beanie for 15-30 minutes. Then, I hop into the shower to co-wash or shampoo depending on how dirty my hair is and when my last shampoo was.
I liked the product enough to take a look at the rest of the Every Strand line of products for curly hair. I now use the Argan Oil With Macadamia Hydrating Hair Masque more so than the coconut oil line for my deep treatments. I adore anything with argan oil because it’s so moisturizing for my hair.
My Every Strand Deep Conditioner for Natural Hair Family
I’ve also tried the Every Strand Aloe Vera Treatment. This deep-conditioning hair cream couldn’t hold a candle to my homemade aloe vera mask so it didn’t make the regular line-up.
You know I love a good aloe vera product but I wasn’t a fan of the consistency. The thickness makes it a little difficult to apply to dry hair. You could say this is totally end-user-related since all the directions say to apply it to shampooed hair.
However, I think a deep conditioner for natural hair is best applied to dry hair, similar to a dry sponge absorbing liquid much better than a wet one. You feel me?
The argan oil masque I love just as much as the shea and coconut oil product and often have both on hand. They both help my hair to snap back after bouts of mistreatment which usually leaves it so parched. Here’s a recent wash-and-go following the argan oil masque:
Hydrated, soft, bouncy, fluffy curls. I’m a solid fan of the Every Strand Shea and Coconut Oil Deep Conditioner and Argan Oil Mask, similar to my Kinky Curly Knot Today and Cantu Leave In.
