          My husband actually picked this out for me and I was skeptical at first. I didn't think this was going to clean my hair nicely. I was so shocked at how silky it made my hair I want to try all their shampoos. I have wavy/frizzy hair and changing shampoos usually doesn't change my hair but this did. It smells kinda masculine but I love how healthy this makes my hair look so I can overlook the smell.

            I use this to wash my hair every other day. I have chemical damage to my hair because I got a color and highlights during the same visit and I noticed that my hair was shedding an awful lot. I already have soft, fine hair that is a little past my shoulders and don't want to cut it again like I had to do a few years back due to chemical damage. I google what products worked best and they led me to this one and it's sold at Ulta - I noticed a lot less shedding and my hair feels great to the touch.

            Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

            I love how this product has all natural ingridients and no parabens, sulfates, etc. This makes my super thin, dry, frizzy, unmanageable hair really soft, shiny and it doesn't cause breakage and frizz. The smell resembles vanilla/coconut. Some of the reviews say that it makes your hair really greasy but that is only if you don't completely wash it out and if you put the matching conditioner all over your hair. You should put the conditioner only on the roots.

                Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

                This product was recommended to me by my Ulta stylist because my current shampoo was leaving my hair really dry. I started using it in mid December, and 4 weeks later, my hair was back to its original moisture level. It doesn't lather that much, but as long as you run the product through your hair from root to tip, it does its job. This product is safe for color treated hair, and the conditioner is fabulous, too!

                      Shea Moisture makes a lot of great products, but the moisture retention shampoo and restorative conditioner are two of my favorite! Not only do they effectively get the job done, but I'm also not spending a ton for a product where a little goes a long way.
