Natural Beauty Christmas Gifts from Shea Moisture

While browsing the ethnic hair care aisle at my local Target, I discovered SheaMoisture products and I've been hooked ever since. So I was thrilled when I was invited to the natural brand's pop-up holiday shop in New York City's Bryant Park.

SheaMoisture products.
Shea butter is naturally rich in vitamins A, E and F, evens skin tone and returns luster to the skin and hair.  The company's recipe is based on the homemade hair and skin preparations made by the founder's grandmother Sofi Tucker in Sierra Leone in 1912.

Of the body products, my favorite is the SheaMoisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Wash, which leaves my skin feeling clean, refreshed and moisturized.  There's also an accompanying SheaMoisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Lotion.

The hair products are designed for women (like me) who want to show-off the natural beauty of their hair and escape using chemically laden products. So I'm eager to try the products I was recently gifted at SheaMoisture's Holiday Shop at Bryant Park.

To help me combat my bout of winter dandruff, I received the African Black Soap Collection with active ingredients like plantain enzyme, tea tree and willow bark extract to alleviate scalp conditions including eczema and psoriasis. The Deep Cleansing Shampoo helps regulate sebum production and removes unwanted build-up.  The Balancing Conditioner conditions and moisturizes hair, while helping to restore PH balance.  And the Dandruff & Dry Scalp Elixir can be used in between shampoos to alleviate flaking and itching.

SheaMoisture's other hair lines include the Coconut & Hibiscus Collection for thick, curly hair; the Raw Shea & Argan Oil Collection for Dry, Damaged Hair; and the Yucca & Baobab Collection for Thin, Fine Hair.

For the special man on your gift list, SheaMoisture also has a line of shaving products.  All of these products and more are available at select retailers and at SheaMoisture's Holiday Shop at Bryant Park (at the 41st Street and 6th Avenue entrance) through January 8, 2012.
