Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

Made my hair heavy and coated couldn't rinse out had to wash with old shampoo 3 times! The smell is awful for the set but omg a shampoo that smells like old lady perfume is sick. And not in a good way.. Not for normal Caucasian wavy hair.. hated it and returned the set.

    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

    I received a sample of this in the mail, and after using it just one time I knew I had to go buy a bottle of it. I brought the conditioner as well. Make sure you rinse your hair really well. I have fine hair and even though this is deep conditioning I have no issues. My husband says my hair smells great too.

      Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

      This product is raved for being good on curly hair so i was excited to try it. plus it was sulfate free and organic so why not, it could only benefit me. but boy was i wrong. in the beginning my hair felt nice, my curls came out looking great, but once it was done fully drying, my curls felt greasy and it left my scalp feeling waxy and even more greasy than it has. it looked like i hadn't showered in months.

          I was really looking forward to trying this product. I loved the shower gel in this line, I even tried the shampoo 2x because I did not believe how awful it was.
          It left a waxy, greasy residue. I have used shampoos before that dont lather & none of them left my hair feeling more dirty then when I started. I cant think of anyone who would benefit from this shampoo.

            If you want clean, great smelling, and tamed hair - this product is for you! Listen, I love frizz as much as the next girl (not at all) but this shampoo with the conditioner combined are humidity blocking ninjas. I have thick, long, and wavy hair - plus I live in South Florida, which let's face it, a brutal combo on any hair but this shampoo cleansed without drying and moisturized without being oily. Just amazing.

                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.

                            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.
