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.

    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

    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 !

          I suffer from dried out hair so I was hoping this shampoo would provide the extra moisture I needed. I've used other SheaMoisture products, but did not care for this shampoo at all. It left my hair greasy and put a residue on my scalp that made it itchy.

          Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

          I've seen the negative reviews and one lady put it well that it is not for Caucasian hair. No, no it isn't. Just because it says "organic" doesn't mean it works for all hair types.

          When I first heard of this line, it was recommended by another African American woman with thick, coarse, dry, hair.

          I feel your hair has to be a certain level of thickness/coarseness for it to NOT leave your hair feeling "greasy".
          So, yes, if you are Caucasian woman with curly hair, this is probably too heavy for you.

          But if you are an African American woman with very thick, coarse, dry or even "nappy" hair, this will work wonders for you.

          Also, if you are doing that transitional thing from having relaxed hair to natural hair, then I also heard that this was most helpful.

          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.

            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.

              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.

                  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.

                  We'd suggest the SheaMoisture Manuka Honey line. It's deeply moisturizing and works to lock in moisture while deep conditioning to leave hair looking healthy and vibrant.

                  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.
