    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

    My hair responds so well to the Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo. It's like having a salon visit every time I wash my hair. It's so fluffy and so easy to style. I just bought another set of the shampoo and conditioner. I rarely buy the same products unless I really really like them. The affordable price is fantastic too!

        Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

        honestly an awful product. My hair is a mixture of curly and wavy, and my sister has very curly hair (curlier then mine) and we have both noticed a difference in formula. We used to love this but it isnt as great anymore. For me it has left my curls un defined and for my sister very dry and just kind of limp.
        Would not recommend this product anymore and will not buy again.

              Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

              I have struggled with seborrheic dermatitis for most of my life, and no products I used ever seemed to clear it up or provide relief. I decided to transition over into a more natural and holisitic lifestyle. I started using this shampoo over a year ago because it is sulfate, silicone, synthetic fragrance, paraben, preservative, and a whole array of other things free. It has changed my hair and has helped to calm my scalp down tremendously. I will admit that when I first started using this product I noticed a little bit of dryness and frizziness. I attribute that to the lack of silicone in the formula. After about a month or so of use and a trim, I no longer experience this. This shampoo is not going to lather up like conventional shampoos. You have to work with it and actually massage the product into your scalp and hair shaft. I highly recommend this along with other Shea Moisture products to my friends and family because it has changed my life. I can't speak for curly haired individuals, but it strengthens, moisturizers, detangles, and products my wavy causcasian hair.

                          The moisture sealant in this shampoo is great. It doesn't leave your hair feeling dry or stripped of moisture, but the smell is too strong for me.

                          I have Caucasian hair, medium thickness nothing too crazy and this works amazing. I don't have any build up or anything. I love the smell too. I also have psoriasis on my scalp so I need natural products so this was the perfect fit. Don't listen to comments saying if you're Caucasian it's not for you because you may end up loving it. If not just return it but I think it's worth a shot. I'll keep buying unless they stop making it.

                              This line would give you spectacular results. This shampoo gently cleanses while deeply moisturizing and repairing dry, damaged or over-processed hair.The same applies with the rest of the line.
