    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea & Cupuaçu Frizz Defense Styling Gel-Cream:

    I bought this because of the natural ingredients and I needed something that wouldn't get dry and flake off of my hair. I have been using it for a few days and I like it so far. I can revive it on second day hair with some water, and the hold is good. I do wish it had a nicer smell, but the smell is not bad and doesn't stick around after application.

    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea & Cupuaçu Frizz Defense Styling Gel-Cream:

    Usually Shea Moisture is a really good brand for my hair. I have the frizziest hair ever and I was hoping this creme/ gel mixture would work perfectly. I try to stick away from gels since they're so drying and cremes alone usually don't take enough for me which made me chose this one. Still leaves my hair feeling dry and frizzy. Extremely runny so it comes out of the bottle easily with no squeeze. Kinda disappointed considering the price and brand name. At first I though it smelled like mint but it doesn't.

    It's not much favorite product from shea moisture. The product just pores out the hole to quickly and makes a mess. I wish it smelled more like the conditioner from this collection. And it seems to dry her hair out

        I thought it would make my Type 3 hair after washing curly and shiny. The product made it stiff and dry. I'm unsure if I used it properly.

            Where to begin... I bought this product since I was recommended to use gel for the frizz from my highly porous hair in Miami, so I thought this one would do the trick it's a gel cream and my hair is very dry. Wrong!!! As soon as I put the product on my hair, it turned a very strange and hard texture, knotted all of my hair and I couldn't get a comb through it at all. I had to wash my hair twice to get it all out. I don't know if I got a bad bottle, I only used a dime sized amount, but it was a horrible experience. I went right back to my devacurl supercream. The good thing is that the mongongo shampoo seemed to help a lot so the frozen calmed down and no longer need to experiment for a gel.

                Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea & Cupuaçu Frizz Defense Styling Gel-Cream:

                First I like to state my ethnic background just in case that influences how a person views a review. I'm Caucasian with 2c/3b mature hair. It's thick, extremely coarse, easily frizzes. I only wash it every 3 to 4 days. That being said, I used to use Catwalk Curls rock serum and amplifier and alternately with Biosilk rock hard gelee. I wanted to start using something silicone-free because I use natural henna to color my hair and want to prolong the color which is recommended. I didn't have high hopes because, let's face it, nothing ever works. I wash my hair with sulfate-free oil shampoo and use the Shea moisture conditioner that smoothes frizzy, wavy hair. Before I get out of the shower, I rinse out the conditioner and then apply the Shea moisture raw shea butter extra moisture leave-in conditioner which is amazing! After that I squeeze out extra water and apply this gel-cream liberally. I comb through, then twist my curls into separate ringlets with my fingers. I then twist it up and clip it to dry or some times I put it down to air dry depending on if the weather is nasty. I never towel dry my hair!!! No need. I rewet around the hairline on no wash days. I tried reapplying where needed but it flakes. You can always use a separate product for fly aways. I hope this helps anyone with similar hair. BTW I get compliments on how great my hair smells and how healthy it looks.

                  I have long, thick hair with big curls that gets very frizzy without product. When my hair is wet I apply a leave in conditioner, oil/serum and curl cream then diffuse my hair. At this point my hair is very big and quite frizzy. I put about a nickel size amount of this Shea Moisture Frizz Defense product in my hand with just a little bit of water and run it through my hair. It defines the curls and gets rid of the frizz without making it crunchy or sticky at all. Love it! Just had to figure out the best way to use it on my hair.

                  Tried on towel dried hair dries ok but feels slightly tacky. Smells good in a weird vanilla kind of way. Adds thickening texture. True test would be in humid weather. So far don't really like it.
