Product Review: Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Anti-Breakage Masque

I want to do a product review for Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Anti-Breakage Masque. I purchased this product with my own money and this is my honest opinion.

Product Name:

Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Anti-Breakage Masque Product Review (Yucca)*

Price and Size:

$11.99/12oz (Target) 


Product Description:

Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Anti-Breakage Strengthening Masque's nutrient-rich formula deeply penetrates to transform frizzy hair into sleek, healthy strands. Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Anti-Breakage Strengthening Masque's nutrient-rich formula deeply penetrates to transform frizzy hair into sleek, healthy strands. Infused with certified organic Shea butter, plantain and yucca for a strengthening formulation that helps hair resist breakage. Baobab oil and cilantro extract refreshes and boosts shine. Split ends are sealed for an improved hair appearance.  

Package Instructions:

Apply masque generously to clean, wet hair. Use a wide tooth comb to distribute evenly from root to ends. Leave in for 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. For a deep penetrating treatment, cover hair with a plastic cap and apply moderate heat for up to 30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. When using a hair steamer do not cover hair, moist heat will add to masque's hydration.



Deionized Water, Butyrosperum Parkii (Shea Butter)*, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil*, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter*, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil*, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Ammonium Salt (Conditioner), Yucca Filamentosa Extract, Vegetable Protein, Adansonia Digitata (Baobab) Extract, Biotin, Panthenol (Vitamin B-5), Rosemary Extract, Bamboo Extract, Sorbitol Esters, Caprylyl Glycol, Essential Oil Blend, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower (and) Lonicera Japonica (Japanese Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Tocopherol (Vitamin E) *Certified Organic Ingredient


Featured Ingredients:

Yucca - Promotes hair growth for thicker, fuller hair.
Plantain Extract - Rich in Vitamin B complex. Nourishes hair with moisture.
Baobab Oil - Contains Vitamins A, D, E and F to fortify and strengthen hair.



My Experience:

I use Yucca after I clarify with Rhassoul clay or after my co wash with Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner. I make sure to focus on my ends, for extra protection, and put on a plastic cap (or plastic bag) and sit under my hooded dryer for an hour.
Sometimes I would use my tea treatment and then infuse the Yucca for deep conditioning for an hour with my hooded dryer. Then I rinse out thoroughly and proceed with my style.

Shea Moisture Yucca and Plantain Anti-Breakage Masque Product Review 


My Own Thoughts:

I absolutely love Yucca! The smell is like a pineapple-perfume smell and the slip is excellent for adding it to my hair. My hair is fine, so I use this to thicken my hair strands for a plumper look and for healthy hair.
The masque is not too slippery...however, I wish Yucca was in a container with a spout so I won't waste any that would fall on my clothes or the floor.
One thing that I noticed is the name of the Masque...I suppose the entire Yucca and Baobab line is changing to Yucca and Plantain. I saw this on Shea Moisture Instagram and was really surprised when I started this review writing Yucca and Baobab, when it is really Yucca and Plantain. Not sure why the line is changing the products up, but I'm happy with the masque.
One more thing I noticed is the ingredients: I did not see plantain anywhere on the label, but I saw yucca and baobab. Now yucca and baobab are not in the first five ingredients (which I thrive on for my products selection), but they were close....but yall know how I am about the first 5 ingredients...
Over all, I'm pretty happy with the product. There are no complaints with it...for now.

Natural hair says: search for the products that are the best for your hair type and texture. Make sure to do your research when searching for products...especially when the line changes. But if your hair loves the product, make it your 'tried and true.'

Always Desire Your Natural,
