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

      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.

                  The second it touched my wet hair my hair felt extremely dry and stuck together, just awful. I immediately rinsed it out of my hair. Will be returning.

                        I wanted a gel that could handle my teaching schedule. I run it through wet hair and then plop with a cotton long sleeved shirt until I almost get to work. It ends up a bit crunchy, but after a few of my classes it loosens up. I kind of want it to be less crunchy, but I kind of want it to keep my curls up all day. I still give it four stars because it's the best working gel I've found on my 2b/2c hair.

                        I was very intrigued by this line since I have tried the line for thin/wavy, and for thick/curly, so my expectations where a little high. It was very a very thin consistency. It did make my hair look good, i had a lot of waves and definition, but it gave my hair a gross texture to it. The feeling stayed in my hair until the next time I washed it. I washed my hair about every 2 days but this made me want to wash it the very next day. I will use the rest of this one but i will probably not buy this gel/cream again. I am definitely a fan of the hair mask from this line though, it is very moisturizing.
