If this packaging looks vaguely familiar, then it should. You may have already tried a similar product called Trader Joe’s Shea Butter & Coconut Oil Hair Mask. And while the packaging is similar, so is the end goal of both products: to give you soft and luxurious hair. However Trader Joe’s Shea Butter and Coconut Oil Hair Serum is best before drying your hair.
Now, just to be clear I naturally have straight hair and for the most part, it is pretty healthy. That doesn’t mean I don’t have my fair share of hair products. I have a whole shelf of them for purposes ranging from volumizing to hydrating, to protection for the straightening iron.
Despite going to the pool at the gym regularly, even chlorine hasn’t wrecked my hair too much. For me, the ends of my hair are in the worst condition. Even my color-treated hair didn’t seem too affected by the additional chemicals.
For me personally, I knew the results weren’t going to be overly dramatic.
But I still got results. Nothing that photography could capture. Despite the feeble attempt at hair selfies, it was hard for someone with straight shiny hair to convey the softness that followed using this product.
My ends were just as soft as the top of my head and that isn’t something to be taken lightly. After drying my hair I would normally describe my ends as “crunchy” or “dry.” Not after using this.
Oh, and it smells ever so slightly of coconut. I really pleasant and natural smell.
For $3.99 you are getting a reasonably priced bottle of hair serum, especially when compared to drugstore or beauty counter prices.
Now, on the downside, I do hate when they say “use a small amount.” I wish they would ballpark this because too much serum can make shiny hair look greasy. My hair is just past my shoulders and one pump was sufficient.
Now, if you can’t find this at your local Trader Joe’s, it can also be found through third-party sellers on Amazon.
Would I buy this again? Yes, I would buy Trader Joe’s Shea Butter and Coconut Oil Hair Serum again.
