Irritated my scalp very badly

By NKP

from Washington, DC

Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Extra Moisture Transitioning Milk:

My hair and I absolutely loved this hair milk. My scalp on the other hand, HATED it.

Pros: smells great, feels great (lots of slip), my tangles would melt as soon as I put this in my hair so detangling took no time at all, made my hair super super moisturized for days, defined my curls, stopped breakage

Con: made my scalp SO INCREDIBLY ITCHY omg. I would wash my hair and everything would be fine, but as soon as I applied this as a leave in my scalp would start itching so badly. It would continue to itch until I washed it out of my hair. Note that I didn't apply it directly to my scalp or my roots, but brushing it through my hair would cause it to get on my scalp.

I put up with a severely itchy scalp for about a month because I just didn't want to believe that this product was causing it since I loved t so much lol, it was the only new thing I added to my regimen though, so I know it was this. Since I stopped using it, the itchies are better, but not completely gone. I figure it'll take a couple washes to get 100% better. If your scalp isn't easily irritated like mine is, I would definitely recommend this product.

I would apply this on top of my Chi silk infusion, let air dry overnight and then straighten it the next morning. My hair looked sooo good and like I said would stay moisturized until I was ready to wash it again. Usually did this process once a week. I'm so sad I had to return this!

    For a while I stopped using this product. I just recently purchased it because I needed a leave in conditioner. This works great with my hair. I also use it as a hair moisturizer along with my steamer.

      Well this leave in is perfect for me. As a curly head girl, I use the LOC method when styling my hair. LOC method is Liquid, Oil, Cream! Pretty much it deals in the moisture and prevents frizz!!!

        Fantastic and light leave-in

        By Eri

        from Morgantown, WV

        Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Extra Moisture Transitioning Milk:

        This makes for a great, but still light, leave-in conditioner. I have fine, high density, high porosity 2C/3A curls to just below shoulder-length, and this does not weigh it down at all, not even at my roots. I use about a quarter-sized amount for my whole head fresh out of the shower, while its still dripping wet. I finger-comb it through, then squish until I feel it absorb. I add my other products, plop with a tshirt, and my dry hair is super soft!

            Great product for curly hair or transitioning. Its light weight, controls frizz and define curls. A good moisturizer or leave in conditioner. Daily use so it doesn't build up. I've been using this for a year when i first went natural. I BC'd my hair again becuz of a bad flat iron at a salon. This helped my grow my hair from a twa/with shaved sides to shoulder length hair within a year. Now of course use the LOC method becuz u cant use this alone when growing curly or wavy hair.

                    Yes, absolutely. Since our products are sulfate-free and paraben-free, it is safe for daily use on dry color-treated hair types.

                    Yes, absolutely. There are several ways you can use the two products together. You can apply the Transitioning Milk to damp hair, proceed with styling, and then use the Curl Enhancing Smoothie (Item #: 2271857) as a finisher on styled hair. Or you can first apply Transitioning Milk, then Curl Enhancing Smoothie to damp hair and proceed with styling. You can even cocktail the two products together in your hands, then apply to damp hair and proceed with styling. We hope these tips help!
