SheaMoisture Peace Rose Oil Complex Hair Care

I've had the SheaMoisture Peace Rose Oil Complex collection for quite a while now. Every time I went to sit and review it, something else came up or got in the way. Well, my review is finally here so continue reading for my thoughts!

I mentioned I had these items for quite a while. I actually did do two blog posts already, not including when these products were used for "Hair of the Day" posts:

As mentioned in the Conditioner post, the scent is wonderful. It is a nice, delicate rose scent done right- flowery soft rose, not offensive, strong, old lady rose (you know what I mean. It still remains a favorite SheaMoisture scent.

The Peace Rose Oil Complex line was designed to restore moisture to dry, brittle hair.

Key Ingredients:
  • Peace Rose Oil Complex a blend of Alpine, Damask and Musk Rose Oils softens hair and skin.  
  • Date Palm Extract rich in vitamins and antioxidants, smooths and protects skin and hair.  
  • Camellia Leaf Extract Natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, helps to calm and soothe skin and scalp.

Nourish & Silken Shampoo
"Gently cleanse and silken hair with this Sulfate-free shampoo infused with the romantic essence of rose. Certified organic Shea Butter blends with our mood-elevating, proprietary Peace Rose Oil Complex in a hydrating formula that nourishes hair fibers and leaves hair silky, soft and smooth. Date Palm Extracts help protect delicate hair"

A great shampoo. Smells yummy, there's lather and it cleanses my hair well without leaving it feeling stripped or dry. It's not quite as hydrating as a co-wash, but that's because it isn't a co-wash, it is a shampoo. I have no complaints except for maybe I wish it was in a pump bottle and not a tube. I've also been using this lately to wash my makeup brushes and it does a fine job at getting them clean.

Nourish & Silken Conditioner 
"Instantly soften and detangle hair with this nourishing conditioner infused with the mood-elevating romantic essence of roses. Certified organic Shea Butter blends with our proprietary Peace Rose Oil Complex in a nourishing formula that softens and conditions hair fibers, leaving hair smooth and shiny. Date Palm and Camellia Leaf Extracts help protect delicate hair."

I stand by my February words. This is a fantastic conditioner and my favorite item from the Peace Rose Oil Complex line. I went through two bottles of this conditioner since February. It's pretty rich, not *quite* as rich as a masque, but still extremely hydrating. This conditioner leaves my hair so super silky. I've used this as a rinse out conditioner and also a leave in and it works well for me either way. Detangling is a breeze, my hair is moisturized, soft and shiny.

Nourish & Silken Styling Gel-Cream
"Define beautiful, crunch-free waves and curls with this conditioning styling gel. Certified organic Shea Butter blends with our proprietary Peace Rose Oil Complex in a smoothing formula that seals in hydration and calms frizzy hair"

I'm torn on this product. I don't love it, but I don't hate it. This gel-cream is just okay for me. The good is it defines my curls and tames poof. The bad is it dries crunchy and when I go to scrunch out the scrunch, my hair gets uber frizzy.  There are so many other SheaMoisture styling products I adore, so I had high hopes for this one.  I've used it a few times, with different shampoos, conditioners and also playing around with the amount to see if it was a usage error. It's just not my favorite.

Nourish & Silken Hold Mist
"This non-aerosol styling aid boosts shine and provides medium hold with movement while eliminating flyaway. The romantic essence of roses helps refresh hair between washing.

I like this mist a lot. I've only used it on dry hair. It adds a gorgeous amount of shine, is lightweight and doesn't feel sticky. It tames frizz to an extent, but on day 1 dry hair it isn't the best frizz fighting product out there. It helps tame pouf if my hair dried too big for my liking. I also have used this as a day 2 or 3 hair refresher spray to revive my curls and it was wonderful for that!

The wash and go below was styled the way I usually style, applying products in my hair section by section, raking through and scrunching, then plopping in my Curl Ease towel and air dried. I used all of the SheaMoisture Peace Rose Oil Complex products, leaving the conditioner in and sealing with Ouidad Mongongo Oil. I applied the mist all over when my hair was completely dry.

While I'm here I also wanted to mention since February I picked up some items from the Peace Rose Oil Complex skin care line as well. The Facial Cleansing Oil smelled wonderful but was terrible for me. I usually use cleansing oils to remove my makeup and even though the bottle says it melts away makeup, it burned my eyes so bad when I attempted to remove. It did leave my skin soft, but that is not enough for me to repurchase when other Cleansing Oils perform better. The Creme Body Lotion was wonderful. I enjoy the scent, as I've stated and it left the skin on my body feeling so silky and hydrated. I'll be picking this up again when I go through some of my lotion stash.

So overall there are items in the Peace Rose Oil Complex line I really line, and some that just didn't quite do it for me. Of course everyone's hair is different and reacts differently to products so you may love the products that I didn't and vice versa and that's okay.
