Product Review: Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Anti-Breakage Frizz-Free Shine Mist

I usually use my DIY mist, but I've picked up this certain mist to try for a change. I also have fine-textured hair, so I thought I could use it to lessen the frizz...

Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Anti-Breakage Frizz-Free Shine Mist Product Review

My Own Thoughts:

The product is okay...meaning I give the product a C+. I'm more like "meh..." with the Yucca Mist because it really is a doctored-up water mist. I could have just used plain water to get the same results that I did with the Yucca Mist.

It did moisturize my hair and make my mane smell very good...but so can water with a few essential oil infused with it.

ALSO, I have NO IDEA what Diheptyl Succinate and Isoamyl Laurate really is. Surely, I looked the ingredients up and they look harmless...HOWEVER! Ingredients that 1). are tough to pronounce, 2). to explain to others to understand, and 3). are hard to find a clear description of the ingredients anywhere are a big NO-NO for me. Those two ingredients are the 2nd and 3rd ingredients on the product label...which I rather have had the feature ingredients in the first 5 ingredients. Even the Baobab oil was to be featured...but I did not even see this on the product label.

Also, my hair was very frizzy after adding Yucca Mist to my hair regimen.

I really wanted to like the Yucca Mist. I really did. But, I do not like the new formula.

Honestly, I miss the original mist: Shea Moisture Yucca and Baobab Thickening Moisture Mist***. This made my hair feel shiny, moisturized, gave my strands the thickening aspect, and I got all the featured ingredients in the top ingredients on the product label. But as for the Yucca Mist?


Have you tried the Yucca? What did you think about it?
