    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

    I was staring to use baking soda to wash my hair because all shampoos I tried left my hair feeling "thick and stiff" after shampooing. This product, besides making my hair feel just clean, has very few harmful chemicals unlike other expressive brands. My hair is permed (not kinky though) and lightened and it is thin and I have a lot of it. Look up EWG dot org for chemical ratings on this and it is. 1 or 2 out of 9 which is amazing!

              I use this for myself & my daughter. I'm natural now(African American type hair) I also used this when I was relaxing(perm)my hair before going natural(no relaxer/perm) This & the conditioner has helped my hair to grow & stay healthy! I love the smell it is refreshing & last for days! My daughter has naturally curly thick hair(bi-racial) Her hair gets dry often, so this is the best system for her hair. It adds moisture & shine & makes it more manageable(I use it with the conditioner as well as the growth & restore leave in conditioner) The results are awesome! & again it smell great! O & to get it to lather good wet hair,squeeze access water out/off, apply shampoo to your hands & rub on the scalp first massaging the scalp & roots of hair, then apply to the hair shaft. If still not soapy or sudsy as you would like add some water to the palm of your hands & apply to the scalp & hair to get your desired lather! Your welcome!!

              Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

              This shampoo is so moisturizing! You won't be stripping your hair with this. It is gentle yet cleans. Fair warning- if you go a long time between washes or use a ton of product leaving grease and oils in your hair, that stuff will eat this up and make lathering difficult. It'll take a few tries to get some good suds growing. If you use it daily it will be better. Not having the harsh ingredients that cause the easy lather is a blessing and a curse. I love that my hair and scalp get clean without being stripped of everything keeping it soft and helping it grow.

                I've been trying to grow my hair out for a life-time and I finally decided to do what it takes to take care of my hair. I have been using the shampoo and conditioner due to the what sounded like me, an AWESOME list. I have been using for 3 weeks and have stopped using hot tools on my hair and honestly my hair hasn't looked this healthy in a long time!! It looks like cut all the dead ends off! I can't wait to continue using. Worth the price!!

                  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!

                      For you, we recommend starting with the Raw Shea Butter Retention Line. Then, switch to the JBCO Line (specifically the Leave-in Conditioner). This should help to restore your hair to an optimal natural state.
