Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Dandruff Control Hair Masque:

I have a very dry scalp and I'm constantly itching and picking out dandruff from my hair. Now I can't shower without it. After I have shampooed, I put a layer onto my roots and lather my conditioner into the rest of my hair. Then I let it deep condition for about 5-10 minutes. I can literally feel it soothing and moisturizing my scalp as it sits. Then, I just rinse! I use a T-Gel shampoo to really help protect my scalp from drying out since I shower almost everyday. I usually skip "shampoo-omg" every 2-3 days.

Comments about SheaMoisture African Black Soap Dandruff Control Hair Masque:

there are not enough praying hands emojis in the world to describe how thankful I am for this product. after first use I saw HUGE improvement on my dandruff. my scalp started flaking a lot when I started dying my hair frequently a few years ago but I never tried to fix it. it got progressively worse and worse and the other day my roommate pointed out that my dandruff looked bad so I was set on fixing it. I used the Jason tea tree shampoo followed by this mask, I kept it in my hair for 30-40 minutes unwrapped and when I washed it out my hair felt so soft (I used a little conditioner on the ends) but the best part is that I've seen just ONE FLAKE all day! amazing. I recommend this to ANYONE!!!!
it also made my curls a lot more defined but that could also be because I tried plopping instead of just sleeping on wet hair.

              I absolutely love this product. It relieves my scalp itch and makes my hair shinier and softer. The smell is a little strong but to me it's worth it because of the results. It also doesn't make my hair too oily or heavy after use which is great. Highly recommend trying this out if you have dandruff or hair in need of a boost.

                  I've used this product plenty of times. And my hair feels soft, moisturized, and clean and I was able to detangle with it. Sometimes it feels too light for my ends, so I add a little of the Restorative Conditioner to my ends before I rinse. Great soapy smell, very refreshing. Great penetrative ingredients. Also, very thick so little goes a long way. Used it with the SM Moisture Retention Shampoo. I don't have dandruff.

                        Foul! This is not the African Black Soap "Purification" Mask. It does not help Dandruff. It is a new formulation and I do not know why Shea Moisture changed the formulation or stop selling the original which was the best product on the market for dandruff and refreshing coils. Do not recommend this Dandruff control masque.
