I went hunting for a natural hair care product that was new and under 10 dollars that could handle my damaged end and I ran into Maui moisture line on Amazon. Maui Moisture is a Natural hair care line out of the UK that has the cutest packaging ever. I went ham with these bad boys because they were literally 7 dollars.
Let me recap for my new subscribers. I have type 4 b/c colour treated, low porosity hair that now has some damaged ends. I did a mini big chop about a month ago and I am now hunting to find a line or products that can help with reducing breakage, replenishing moisture and stimulate hair growth.
With that said, I got the Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Shampoo for dry hair, Strength & Heal Anti-Breakage + Agave conditioner for chemically damaged hair, Heal & Hydrate + Shea Butter Leave-In, the Heal and Hydrate Hair Mask and the Strength & Heal Anti-Breakage + Agave Hair Mask. I will explain why the 2 deep conditioners later on in the post. The products came in time except one of the deep conditioners it came probably a week later. Ensure you check your shipping.

Packaging Of Maui Moisture
I love the packaging! I am a sucker for some good packaging. I loved the vibrant colours, the whole Hawaiian feel to the colours. I like that the bottles of the shampoo and conditioner was plastic and had a square shape with rounded edges. Hands down I bought it BECAUSE of the packing (don’t you try judging me you have done that too. I will give it the full 5 marks, obviously.
While writing this post I had to go back to smell the products. Meaning to say the smell wasn’t all that outstanding. It smells like hair product. I was expecting something fruity or flowery but nope just plain old hair product. Look, nothing is wrong with that at all but with so much competition out there I really think Maui Moisture should do better where that is concerned, plus other things. Hmmm, they get a 2 for this. Smell needs improvement.
Bar none I can already give them a 5 here. It was like $6.69 for the shampoo and $8.89 for the deep conditioner. I mean who can beat that. I know all too well with all our other bills that buying expensive hair products is not at the top of our list. Don’t get me wrong high-end products most times do work, but I do not believe there is a need to overspend on taking care of your hair and there are loads of brands who believe in that.
Ok so here is where Maui Moisture went downhill for me. Let me start with the shampoo, absolutely no slip. I have not had that much tangles in quite some time and my hair felt dry while I was shampooing. The Conditioner, it started to get a little better not enough slip so I could not detangle with this at all. I had to use the Hair Mask, which I loved for the slip but not so much for the moisture. I detangled my hair with the Deep Conditioner, left it on all day never saw much of a difference.
Now, this is the reason why I need up with two, I wanted to give Maui Moisture a fair chance so I went back to their site, read all the literature and bought another Hair Mask the Agave for chemically damaged hair. I figured maybe I need to get something more targeted. That worked, my hair was more moisturizing, but still did not blow me away. I wanted ground shaking. The Leave-In that was ground shaking for my hair, my braid out turned out superbly and I think it had to do with the leave in, it was the only new product I used in my LCO Method. This is why I always preach used the same line an
I will give this a 3 out of 5.
It Says It Does What?
MAUI MOISTURE WAS INSPIRED BY HANDPICKED & HANDCRAFTED INGREDIENTS THAT CAN BE FOUND ON TROPICAL ISLANDS LIKE MAUI.
MOST SHAMPOOS AND CONDITIONERS START WITH DEIONIZED, CHEMICALLY TREATED WATER AS THEIR PRIMARY INGREDIENT. MAUI MOISTURE STARTS WITH A UNIQUE BLEND WITH ALOE VERA JUICE AND IS INFUSED WITH PURE COCONUT WATER.
MAUI MOISTURE IS CRAFTED INTO 6 AMAZING RANGES FOR ALL DIFFERENT HAIR TYPES & TEXTURES TO HELP GET YOUR HAIR LOOKING HEALTHY. AN ESCAPE TO THE MAUI ISLANDS WITH EVERY USE.
Sounds great right! I like the aloe vera juice part for sure this shampoo is healthier than most, No Parabens, sulphates or silicones. It is vegan with pure coconut water and Aloe vera juice. I am going to give this a 4. It didn’t profess to make your hair smooth and bouncy it spoke about the healthiness of the product, animal free and plant base. Therefore it was basically true to advertise
I will use the products until they are finished my favourite was the leave-in, not sure what’s in it that works for my hair but I am digging it. I will repurchase that and the hair mask. It is only $7 so it’s worth trying this product line to see if its good for your hair.
