    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

    I have color treated hair which tends to dry out easily. I need a sulfate free shampoo because I shampoo daily. This shampoo does not add to the dryness and in fact, adds moisture as the name implies. It leaves my hair so soft that I often skip the conditioner. For anyone who complains that it doesn't lather, well, that's because it does not contain sulfates which is the element that creates the lather. The only negative is the scent. It's not a horrible fragrance. You get used to it but it could be better.

    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

    For reference I have thick, low porosity 3b hair that's about elbow length when dry. I have been using this product for about 3 weeks now and I absolutely love the change this all natural shampoo has made to my hair!
    This is a very gentle shampoo (almost like a no poo shampoo), so I use this as an everyday (or every other day) shampoo. It doesn't lather a lot, but that's to be expected from an all natural shampoo. I use a little less than a quarter size each shampoo it leaves my hair shiny and moisturized.
    It has a slightly sweet cologne scent which I LOVE (not feminine, but also not masculine either) and the scent really stays on your hair (I can smell it the next day even). A couple days after I bought this my friend kept smelling my hair and he said it smelt warm.
    I absolutely love everything about this shampoo. The smell. The perfect balance between clean and moisturized. Can't beat it!

      Made my hair shiny and healthy. Upon first few uses, it feels like you didn't rinse the shampoo out all the way. But left my hair feeling and smelling great.

        Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

        I been using this product for a while now and it works well with my thick hair. My hair is relax but I have a lot of new growth and this shampoo really keeps my hair soft and makes it easter to manage. I would highly recommend it to people with natural hair but I can say it works well with relax hair also.

            Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

            I am an African American women that is two months into transitioning from my relaxed hair to my natural 4c hair. I basically used the entire Raw Shea Butter line from SheaMoisture. I expected to be the least satisfied with the Moisture Retention shampoo but it was actually one of my favorite products from the Raw Shea Butter line. The shampoo was gentle, lathered well, and smelled pretty good. My hair didn't feel dry after rinsing the product out. I don't recommend using a lot of it to shampoo your hair. I don't think it does anything to help detangle hair which is why I did not give it a higher rating.

            This product requires lots of rinsing. I'll definitely use it, but not every day. Great for dry hair.

              Very Different from Usual

                  Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

                  I've been using this shampoo for over two years, but I usually get it elsewhere. I ordered from Ulta awhile ago because of the BOGO50 deal, and when it came I noticed that the shampoo was a funky color (vaguely greenish instead of the dark cream color it usually is), and seemed thinner than normal. I put it down to this being a natural product with possible variations and put it away. When I finished my last bottle and used the first Ulta one, the smell was really unpleasant - it had a chemical scent, rather than the lovely perfume-y smell I'm used to. I compared it with the tiny bit left in the empty bottle and it definitely smelled different, like it had gone bad. Later that day, my scalp started itching like crazy, like I was having a reaction to sulfates (the reason I switched to Shea Moisture in the first place!) I unscrewed the cap on the second Ulta bottle and I didn't even have to remove the seal to catch the same chemical smell.
                  I'm going to get another bottle from my regular place to see whether I should be upset with Shea Moisture for switching formulas (though all the ingredients were the same), or with Ulta for selling fake or substandard product. I was seriously disappointed.

                      A:

                      This gentle, moisturizing shampoo is free of harsh ingredients such as sulfates and salts, so it is absolutely safe to use on color-treated and chemically-treated hair. It will not cause any fading.
