So I actually had a choice of which hair line I was most interested in trying. After much thought, I picked the Karité one. I’ve been using hot tools on my hair a lot lately (gearing up for tutorials, but I still need practice!) & I honestly just adore shea butter. Shea Butter smells so warm & nutty, & also a tad tropical like maybe coconuts? It also smells very sweet, almost a brown sugar addition? Either way, it has done some fab things for my skin, why not my hair?
From nuNAAT about the Karité Special with Shea Butter Line:
- Packed with vitamin A, D, E and F
- Protects hair from harmful sun damage
- No oily buildup or greasy residue
- No clogged pores
- Rehydrates, restores and revitalizes dry, damaged and brittle hair
- Restores natural brilliance to chemically-processed hair
- Protects hair from damage caused by daily flat iron use
My hair isn’t exactly dry right now except at the ends, but the system didn’t over-moisturize my roots either! In fact, I think it kind of helped to “regulate” the oily-ness that summer brings my way. Let’s look at each product individually shall we?
Karité Special Nourishing Shampoo:
This is a lot thinner than pretty much every other shampoo I’ve ever tried. I think i used too much the first few times because of this. Experience noticeably stronger, healthier hair after just one shampoo. It claims you’ll be able to notice a difference after one shampoo & I think it was definitely more moisturized, then again, I also used the conditioner!
Karité Special Reconstructive Conditioner:
Again, way thinner than expected. It says: Apply to clean, wet hair and leave in for 3 minutes before rinsing. Most conditioners say 2 minutes so maybe the extra minute is what makes hair so silky. My hair was super soft, definitely moisturized!
Karité Special Deep Conditioning Hair Mask:
This is a really big tub, 17.6 oz to be exact! Directions say: Use twice monthly for deep, restorative conditioning. Works great on chemically-processed hair. Smooths and protects hair that’s been weakened with age. Apply to clean, wet hair. Leave in for 15 minutes. Rinse completely. Only 2 times a month? Wowie! Normally they suggest 1-2 times a week. I applied it about halfway down my hair then clipped it up. After 15 minutes, my hair was super smooth even wet & even better when dry. I approve. This isn’t thin like the others either & you only need a bit. It will last you a great while.
Karité Special Leave-In Detangler (Combing Cream):
Tames and detangles, making hair more manageable for styling. It only takes a small amount. Distribute throughout hair and comb in. Use daily or as needed.
I used this every time after washing my hair except after using the hair mask or when leaving my hair curly. I even used it on my hair when it was a bit dry, just because I love the scent so much! Plus, they’re right, you only need a tad. This will also last a good chunk of time!I also like that this is a squeeze bottle instead of a spray because I didn’t want to accidentally get my roots.
Karité Special Thermo Active Anti-Frizz:
Protects hair from regular blow-drying and flat iron use. This heat-activated styling product will maintain your hair’s natural shine.
I put a bit of this on my hands & kind of scrunched it through my wet hair before flow drying. My hair seemed shinier & again, love the scent. I didn’t use it for flat ironing but this will likely replace my blow-dry type balm.
Overall, I guess you can tell I love the scent! I think this line will be perfect for winter, when my hair is most dry. I also love how soft this line made my hair without leaving that “residue” type feeling or making it heavy.
You can purchase this line & other lines from nuNAAT at Walgreens, Drugstore.com & Sally Beauty which is where I tend to shop for new hair products.
