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.

Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

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.

Smells disgusting!

      Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

      I received a sample sachet of this. I was excited to try it, got it out, gave it a whiff before I put it on my hair, and YUCK! It smells absolutely disgusting! I've never hated a hair product smell before so I'm not some crazy picky person, but it smells like a mixture of dirt, a mud mask, and soggy wet rotting spa clay stuff that's been sitting around. It's so gross! I made my husband come over to smell it and asked him if he liked it and he turned his nose up and just made a stank face! I asked him if he thought I should use it more and he said it was nasty and to put it down the drain! So I did. Ugh so gross! (The conditioner doesn't smell as bad, that one actually smells ok, so my husband used it.)

        from sacramento, ca

        Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

        So i love this shampoo because it smells good and leaves my hair feeling light and clean! the reason why i dislike this shampoo is because it says on the directions to lather... this shampoo does NOT lather! i have long hair and i feel like i have to use the whole bottle to wash my hair.

        Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

        This is the first shampoo that literally doesn't have any type of Sulfur,sulfate or sulfite in it.
        Thanks. I now have no itchy scalp or hives on my body. It smells good,not overpowering and
        is organic but it doesn't lather that great and i have to use more shampoo. Not so great but it beats the itches any day.
        I will continue to use this shampoo as long they don't discontinue it.

          I don't review products often BUT I had to review because this product line is truly amazing! I've always had trouble with keeping my hair moisturized !! But when I stumbled across this product I had to create a review because my hair is soft and manageable!! My favorite sooooo far !!
          BTW For ladies that have "Low Porosity" this product is for YOU! My hair feels so soft and detangled !! And it's been three days; trust me my hair is always tangled the next day after I use a different products! Best line for Natural Chicks on a budget !

                  A:

                  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.
