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.

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

    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 :)

            • Q:

              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.

                You can use this twice a week! The water temperature does not matter. Our JBCO masque will encourage hair growth.
