    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

    I have very long thick, curly hair which has a tendency to be dry. It's difficult to find a shampoo that lathers well without all of the toxic ingredients.

                        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

                            For Low Porosity hair, we'd suggest the Raw Shea line over the Manuka Honey as it has less protein, and low porosity hair can tend to be protein sensitive.

                            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.
