        Oh. My. GOD. I am in LOVE with this stuff!!

        After a bad bleaching incident that left my hair falling out in clumps, I ordered this and eagerly waited for the package to arrive. I used it that first day and noticed an immediate improvement! My hair is thin in addition to the damage but this stuff worked wonders.

        I worked it through wet hair with my fingers and felt tangles come undone as the product spread through. I rinsed and then applied some more to leave in, and my hair dried super soft and shiny! It was like night and day!! The product was light enough that my hair curled naturally while air drying. :)

        100% going to recommend this miracle worker!!

            Let me just say this may be targeted toward curly hair, but I have naturally very fine, straight hair that has been bleached to platinum and as a result is dry and damaged. This stuff isn't just good for relaxed hair, it's GREAT for any kind of chemically processed and damaged hair. My hair was literally awful and just breaking off constantly from the slightest tug..this stuff dramatically improves the elasticity and my hair doesn't look fried at all after I apply it. I 100% recommend this!!

                          You can certainly mix and match different products and collection to achieve your personal hair care needs and goals. You do not need a separate leave-in as our Condtioners can also double as a leave-in. You do not need an oil, however, this is personal preference and we advise doing what you think is best for your hair.

                          While both products help dry, damaged hair to create shiny hair there are still differences.

                          SheaMoisture's Raw Shea Butter Extra-Moisture Transitioning Milk helps to strengthen, promote healthy hair growth, and transition chemically treated hair to natural healthy hair.

                          SheaMoisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk works to hydrate, tame frizz, detangle, and provide awesome definition to your curls.
