          Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

          I was excited to try this product because it is organic and I'm trying to switch over from soaps with harsh chemicals. I used the product for about 3 days and started to notice my hair became extremely greasy. I tried to wash it out with my regular Pantene shampoo but it's still not all the way out. I have no clue why it's doing this to my hair! I read the reviews before buying this product and I didn't see anyone else that had the same problem. My hair is straight and the exact opposite of dry. The shampoo is "moisture retention" so maybe that's why it's making my hair so disgusting! Ugh I hope I can return this

          Love the smell!

          By Stephie

          from Houston, TX

          Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

          Shea is one of my favorite scents in this world! The scent on this isn't TOO strong, for those that are sensitive to smell. I have very thick, curly, Italian hair, so I only wash my hair every other day or so. This did give me a bit of build up the first time I washed with it, so now I only use this on my shaft, and ends. It definitely helps heal split ends, add moisture, and add shine. I would recommend this if you blow out your hair, or heat style your hair frequently.

            Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

            This has become my holy grail shampoo........and i've never had one of those before!! :-o I did not care for the matching conditioners fragrance (nice but too overpowering for me, altho the first one of this brands products i felt that way about). Sad because i love how that conditioner performs (deep conditioning my hair with no heat whether applied we or dry!!). But because of that i waited ForEver to try this shampoo and boy am i sorry i waited!! What a favor i would've done my hair to get this sooner!! I ended uo getting 25% more bottle too and on a buy two get one free sale ! :-o whoopeee :-D
            Now my sister is gonna try it. Because i said so darnit! lol

                A:

                We'd suggest the SheaMoisture Manuka Honey line. It's deeply moisturizing and works to lock in moisture while deep conditioning to leave hair looking healthy and vibrant.

                A:

                We'd suggest trying the Jamaican Black Castor Oil line. The leave-in and edge treatment work to strengthen and deeply moisture the hair while hiding breakage, shedding, and flyaways.
