    Comments about SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & Refresh Scalp Elixir:

    I've had a very flaky scalp since I was a child and one of my constant struggles has always been itching it and having flakes go everywhere. I even went to a dermatologist for it. Since I've started using this a month ago, I rarely have to itch my scalp and I barely get any flakes anymore. I usually wash my hair in cycles or 4-5 days and usually the first 3 days of my hair after using this is flake free and day 4-5 will have a tiny amount of flakes. It's not perfect and it didn't completely eliminate flakes but the effectiveness after I've tried so many different shampoos, oils, massage methods, exfoliating methods, has worked better than any tips from the countless articles and youtube videos I've seen, and has helped my scalp improve so much.

      Comments about SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & Refresh Scalp Elixir:

      I have wavy/curly hair and I've struggled with dandruff since my early teens. I used to solely use head and shoulders but sometimes even that didn't work and it really dried out my curls. This product has helped so much with dandruff and product buildup. The first time I used it I was shocked when I was massaging my scalp because it felt oily, not in a bad way, it just felt like a dry oil similar to the ones you would use on your face. I was shocked because I thought it would be drying but it is the opposite. It's so moisturizing! And it has great ingredients like Grape seed oil, Sunflower seed oil, Jojoba oil, Shea butter, Mint, Ginger, and Activated charcoal.
      It's also gentle enough to use every time you shampoo. I can't say enough good things. The scent is very strong and minty but it's so refreshing, and when the water hits your head in the shower it is heaven.
      I would highly recommend

          I have a very dry scalp and I've been trying everything to get rid of my dandruff. I used to use the black african shampoo and conditioner and it worked but i think i used it soo much it got immune to my scalp. ive done oil treatments and nothing. i used the elixer once and OMGGG first of all the minty feeling is everything! i love the tingling feeling. after the 20 minutes i used the shampoo from the same line and i have no more dandruff!! my scalp is so clean and fresh. the tingling feeling lingered on til the next day and i loved it. I will be using this prior to shampooing my hair every time!!!

            Comments about SheaMoisture African Water Mint & Ginger Detox & Refresh Scalp Elixir:

            I have to use a lot of product on my hair, because it's curly and tends to get frizzy easily. I bought this product on a whim, and I ended up really liking it. I massaged it directly into my scalp and halfway though my hair, left it in for 20 minutes, and then washed my hair like normal. My curls were smooth and shiny after I dried my hair. Even my boyfriend noticed.

            The only complaint I have is that the pump is REALLY hard to push down. Once my hands had oil on them, it made it even more difficult to use. I considered taking the pump out and pouring the product directly into my hands, but I liked the idea of pumping it directly onto my scalp.

              I put this miracle stuff on my scalp. Let it linger and work for about 20/25 mins, I could feel the tingling of it working instantly.
              I washed my hair as usual after but the shine! It was perfect shiny straight soft hair. I'm now obsessed.

                  I had pretty bad dandruff and and itchy scalp for a while so I turned to this product. After just two uses, I saw that there was no flakiness in the scalp or hair anymore! My scalp doesn't itch anymore as well. I also use the shampoo and conditioner of this line, which probably helped too. I definitely recommend this product to see great results.

                      So after a few days with a really itchy scalp and some dandruff that came out of no where, i decided I needed to turn to sheamoisture for help. I've used the African water mint collection before and loved it, so I decided to give this guy a whirl to see how it worked. I have to say,I'm really impress. The dryness and flakiness were gone immediately after using this product. Only problem I experience was my hair feeling oily after using it but that was most likely due to me not rinsing it out correctly. Sheamoisture can never do any wrong.

                        I recently dyed my hair and it dried out my scalp so bad that I had extreme dandruff and an itchy scalp. I was looking for a relatively inexpensive and effective scalp treatment to help ease my discomfort and dandruff. So I went and bought this product earlier today. After using it I can safely say that IT WAS AMAZING.

                        It smells fantastic, especially if you enjoy minty scents. The pump on the bottle makes it super easy to apply directly to your scalp without wasting any product. I left it on for 20 minutes as the directions say to and it was a blissful 20 minutes of relaxation and minty tingly scalp. I shampooed and conditioned as I normally do and the minty feeling stays on your scalp for a while after washing it out. This is a good thing, trust me.

                        My scalp is now itch free and I don't have to be embarrassed by dandruff anymore. I would recommend this product to everyone (my husband even used it!)

                          I have experienced hair thinning and breakage, particularly around my edges. Do you recommend that I try this product line or the Jamaican Black Castor Oil line to treat my hair and scalp? I wish to achieve a healthier scalp and regrowth.

                        • Q:

                          Will this product help with thinning hair? I know that a healthy scalp helps with hair growth, and I have heard that ginger is a good ingredient to use when trying to grow out one's hair. Is this the product I should use? Thank you in advance for taking the time to answer my question.

                          Can you use this every day? Can it be left longer than 20 minutes? Perhaps overnight?

                            Yes. Since this product is made from natural and organic ingredients, it is safe to use daily. However, for best results, we suggest sticking to the recommended 20 minutes.
