INOAR Absolut DayMoist Shampoo and Conditioner Review

This hair care brand can do no wrong in my books. You can read previews posts and reviews of INOAR HERE and HERE.

Today I want to tell you about the new INOAR Absolut DayMoist range.

INOAR DayMoist 250ml shampoo conditioner mask


This is what INOAR says:

The action of the synergic complex of the Cornstarch and the Beet Extract, along with the exclusive Daymoist CLRTM, restores the hair protecting the integrity of the Alpha Helix in charge of the keratin maintenance. It increases hair elasticity, preserves colour and shine, protects from discolouring and prepares the hair for high temperature treatments.

Now, I have no idea what exactly an Alpha Helix is or what the benefits of cornstarch and beet extract is in hair care products, nor do I really care. What matters to me is how the products perform. And my oh my, does it perform.

I had the opportunity to try the shampoo and conditioner and both are absolute winners.

The INOAR Absolut DayMoist Shampoo is most definitely one of the best shampoos I have ever used. If you have dry and/or damaged hair like me, you have to try it. My hair is left super soft after every wash. I have to remind myself to apply conditioner as my hair is so silky that I can actually detangle it without it. Curly girls will know that we usually need handfuls of conditioner to do that. This shampoo leaves my hair feeling clean, nourished and cared for. The word ‘wow’ comes to mind every time I think about it. The product itself is thick and luxurious and has a beautifully sweet and creamy scent. It truly is a treat to use. INOAR Absolut DayMoist Shampoo (250ml) retails for R220.

The INOAR Absolut DayMoist Conditioner is also a goodie. The conditioner was actually lighter than I expected yet it still did exactly what I need it to. My hair feels soft and nourished, detangling is quick and easy and my hair is super shiny after use. It also doesn’t weigh my hair down at all. A little goes a long way. INOAR Absolut DayMoist Conditioner (250ml) retails for R220.

There is also a mask in the range. What it does: The mask was developed with flower extracts and an exclusive formula with an ultra-hydrating DayMoist CLRTM for intense conditioning and glow, recovery of hair elasticity, easy combing and protection of hair damaged by heat and colouring. It’s said to provide instant shine and restoration. I haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet, but judging by the quality and efficacy of the shampoo and conditioner, I’m sure it is a gem. The INOAR Absolut DayMoist Mask (250ml) retails for R350.

Wema brings you the natural goodness of Mafura and Shea Butter


Mafura Butter (Trichilia Emetica) or Natal Mahogany Butter is rich in essential fatty acids (palmitic, stearic, oleic and linoleic) and has been shown to have antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity due to the presence of limonids such as Trichilin A’.

Now I have no idea what most of that means and why it’s good for you, but the anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial part caught my attention. This means that the butter could be great to treat enflamed eczema. And I am happy to say it is. I have used it to treat both mine and Cara’s and I am very happy with the results. It is a fantastic skin moisturiser and great treatment for dry and brittle hair.The butter itself is a caramel colour and the scent has ‘yummy nutty undertones’ (stolen from the web as I had no idea how to describe the scent).

Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii) or Karité Butter is rich in proteins of oleic acid, excellent moisturizer and emollient, provides extraordinary softness to dry skin protecting the tissues.’

I was so excited to try Shea Butter as most of my favourite moisturisers contain this wonder ingredient. I have used the Shea butter to moisturise my hands and cuticles and I have used it as a hair treatment. You can’t easily top the moisturising qualities of Shea Butter. I have also used it as an all over body moisturiser for Cara and it can’t be beat. I apply it after her bath in the evening and her skin still feels soft and supple the next morning. Note that her skin is extremely dry because of her eczema and the cold weather. In short, I LOVE Shea butter. The Shea Butter is white in colour with a feint scent that is actually quite pleasant.

Both of these butters come in a solid and I use a teaspoon to scrape some product from the pot. Both butters melt in your hands (with a little bit of work), but I find that the Mafura Butter melts a bit easier. Because of the delayed absorption of the butters into the skin, they are suitable as medium oils for massage. I find that the Shea Butter absorbs a little bit quicker. For this reason I prefer the Shea Butter as a moisturiser.

Both of these products are amazing and with so many uses, I will make sure to have at least one of them in the house from now on.

Shea Butter and Mafura Butter both retail for R100 for 100ml.
