    Comments about SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & Refresh Hair & Scalp Gentle Shampoo:

    This is a great shampoo for cleansing your scalp deeply without drying it out since there are no sulfates in it. The smell is lovely, it's minty and fresh but not in a toothpaste way haha. My hair normally reeks of cigarettes because my SO is a chain-smoker but this shampoo keeps it smelling clean at least twice as long as the standard shampoo does.

        Comments about SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & Refresh Hair & Scalp Gentle Shampoo:

        I've been using harsh shampoos and conditions to tackle my dry scalp problems for most of my teen & adult life. I use Shea Moistures skin care line and decided to take a chance on this Shampoo & Conditioner duo. I've used it once and I instantly felt scalp relief. I didn't get the strong "odor" as others complained about. It did tingle during my lather and wash process, but I could feel the difference once it was dried. I even had a professional shampoo a couple days later and my hair and scalp are back to being upset. Looking forward to my next shampoo with these products.

            I want to love this shampoo because I love the brand but it is giving me dandruff :( I thought maybe it was exfoliating my scalp the first few times so I used it for several days, thinking the dandruff would go away. It never did.

            Comments about SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & Refresh Hair & Scalp Gentle Shampoo:

            I use the African Water Mint & Ginger Detox shampoo as needed. Generally, after several days - a week of heavy gel or cream product use. This shampoo leaves my hair feeling clean and soft. I also wash my hair with this shampoo before proctective styling. It's my experience that the deep, yet gentle cleanse is a great base for lengthy styles. I usually follow up with the leave in conditoner from this line.

              I really wanted to like this. It lathered well, smelled minty and made my scalp feel refreshed. I have mild but annoying dandruff and this started to work the first couple of times. Now my dandruff is worse and the flakes are bigger. I have a freaking winter wonderland on my head! I tried this because Tgel stopped working and this was more convenient than making a hair mask that I found on Pinterest.

                I bought this shampoo for my husband, who used to have dry scalp. He no longer does :) He washes his hair 1-2 times a week. He has fine straight hair and has no issues with oily or greasy hair with use of this shampoo. Will definitely buy it for him again :)

                  I have really curly dry and frizzy hair and I live in a humid country. Would this shampoo be good for twice a week use? Should I be rinsing in warm/ cold water for best results? I have immense hair fall.would this shampoo help? Or do you suggest anything else? I want a shampoo that doesn't dry out my hair or promote hairfall..usually anti dandruff does that to me. I plan to use ginger and mint shampoo, sauve naturals conditioner, Shea Jamaican strengthening masque. Please advice. Want to have defined curls with no hairfall.
