          Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Detangler:

          I was super exited when I bought this product because other Shea moisture products have been doing wonders on my hair. First application the smell was terrible but it made my hair crazy soft and smooth. It was soo easy to comb and my hair felt amazing. A few days later I began to scratch my scalp like a maniac and it just wouldn't stop and got worse until I washed it. During the wash the smell of the detangler was very pungent and spent about a week or more before it started to fade away. Still haven't been able to find out what ingredient is causing this incredible itching but bottom line it's very irritating. Great for my hair but terrible for my scalp. For me, it was a waste of money. I also had to add natural coconut oil to give it slip.

                I had two major knots underneath my hair. It was like a rats nest! I had to use a lot of product, hence the 4 stars, but the knots finally came out. I thought for sure qhen my hair dryer I would be a greasy mess. To my surprise my hair is not greasy at all. It is soft, silky, not as dry, and very easy to brush.

                  ..I was nervous a bit to put this in my hair because it's gel like consistency, I thought it'd leave a ton of residue, but it worked awesome! It helped with my tangles and added so much shine to my lifeless hair. It just sunk right in my hair and made it look so healthy! I started using this on my 2 Toddler girls as well. They have a totally different hair structure than I do, yet there hair has never looked any better. The smell isn't over powering and I can't tell you how it works on dry hair, I've only ever used right after the shower. I'm very happy with this product! I actually started using this over its a 10, only because I've been going more natural (no heat) these days. You'll like this. It's one of those things that just becomes a staple in your routine and you don't realize how easy it makes your life until you run out! :)

                  I have straight hair and this is the first time in my life that I have grown it out. It is so long that I had to start fighting the tangles that were forming at the ends. This product has made my life so much better. Just a little goes a long way, at least for my hair type. I'd usually spend 5-7 minutes detangling and now it's just a 2 minute thing. Worth the money!

                      A:

                      For your hair needs, we think the Raw Shea Butter Line may be a bit heavy. However, this is exactly why we formulated our Fruit Fusion Collection to help give those with straight hair types the same great moisture without all the weight. We would recommend you start out by using the Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Shampoo and Créme Rinse. Then, if you're loving the results, you can pick up the Hair Masque too.

                      The Raw Shea is great for transitioning or super damaged hair that is limp and needs strength, while the Super Fruit Multi Vitamin smoothes and defrizzes the hair leaving it knot free and stronger. If you are looking for smoother, frizz-free hair we'd suggest the Super Fruit.
