I love the graphics they put on their welcome cards- this girl has gorgeous locks!
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
This is a super durable canvas bag. I used last month’s as an extra bag to store hygiene products while traveling abroad & it was perfect for that.
*Note: Before SHTRANDS sent me the first box to review I filled out a hair questionnaire. After receiving my first hair care regime they sent me a post questionnaire that allowed me to provide feedback. They asked whether I wanted to receive the same hair care products or different ones. I like to switch things up so I requested all different products to try. My bag will probably be different than others- I have long, fine curly/wavy non-color treated hair. I also said I will use non-organic products but it’s a plus if they are organic.

The creators seriously go the extra mile handwriting the instructions. It makes it extra personal & like you truly have a personal stylist. I l also like how they give you instructions on how to use the products given, it’s very helpful.
Teadora Brazilian Radiance Rainforest at Dawn Miracle Shampoo & Conditioner Set– 12 oz. FULL SIZE! $56.00
I absolutely love this shampoo & conditioner set! First off, I love having matching shampoo & conditioner. Second, it has the most wonderful natural, earthy floral scent. I love the texture and it left my hair super soft and shiny after using it! It also had a good amount of frizz control and I battle frizz frequently due to having wavy/curly hair. This is hands down my new favorite shampoo & conditioner! According to the website the shampoo & conditioner are packed with Amazon super fruits and other powerful botanicals, has 100% natural scents and is sulfate free with antioxidant & vitamin-rich Buriti, Acai and Cupuacu. You couldn’t ask for a better natural hair care set.
Joico Curl Controlling Anti-Frizz Styler – 3.4 oz. FULL SIZE! $13.99
When I first saw this product I initially thought it was a gel, but was pleasantly surprised to see it had more of a creamy texture. This product is awesome and I can’t believe I’ve gotten this far in life without it! It made my curls smooth, soft & shiny and kept well in my hair for two days without getting gunky ( I wash my hair every two days). This product features CurlRepair Technology that has three curl-loving breakthroughs: Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex, Triple-Oil Complex & AquaLastik Technology.
Abba Texturing Cream– 2.65 oz. FULL SIZE! $18.00
I love the smell and consistency of this texturing cream! I put it on my 2nd day straight hair and it worked amazing! It gave me the life, shine & body I needed and didn’t weigh my hair down or look greasy. I discovered the Abba brand thanks to SHTRANDS and I am officially hooked after using this product. The key botanicals in this cream are: olive butter, sunflower extract and ProQuinoa complex. I highly recommend this product!
Verdict: This has been my favorite bag from SHTRANDS so far! I really like how much work the creators put in to make sure you are happy with their sub. It’s also cool to have the option to either receive the same products or try something new. It is truly a customized hair regimen! I loved every product I received this month and have been using all products since getting them so I’m beyond happy. The shampoo & conditioner set alone was almost the cost of the sub. The total value of products given is $87.99 which is higher than the $59.00 sub price. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to switch up their hair routine, wants to try salon products at a lower cost or needs direction when it comes to hair care. I’m already anticipating my next regimen!
What do you think about May’s SHTRANDS box? Did you receive the same hair care regimen I did?
