Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

I started using this shampoo about 3 months ago when I was on the hunt for a product without sulfates, parabens or a laundry list of unknown chemicals on the label. I am glad to have come across this gem!

I have hopped between 3 different hair colors and put my naturally dark brown hair through several bleaches in the past year and a half and this completely brought my hair back to life!

I have thin (but lots of) wavy hair naturally.
This shampoo doesn't weigh it down yet doesn't strip all of the natural oils out of your hair and scalp that your hair needs to thrive.

It's true, it DOESN'T lather as well as some would hope, but that doesn't bother me at all. It's just confirmation that it's not full of harmful, harsh detergents that are in many popular brands of shampoo (even the high end salon brand ones).
A big lather is a bad sign to me.
Once you work this well into your scalp and let it sit for a minute or two and rinse thoroughly your hair will be squeaky clean with no residue or oiliness.
I also bought the conditioner which is a dream!

My hair went from looking completely dead at the bottom half to looking healthy and shiny in a matter of a MONTH of using this stuff!

I'll also add that I only wash my hair once per week because I don't have an oily scalp to begin with so that's a difference after only 4-5 washes which I find pretty incredible.
It has never stripped any of the colors out of my hair either.
Also, I have had a problem in the past with certain shampoos irritating my scalp and making it itch like crazy after using it and this shampoo has never done this so that's more points for this product in my book.

The only negative thing I can say about it is that the bottles are pretty small so for someone with long hair like myself it doesn't last as long as I'd like, but it's not like it's expensive anyway so I just stock up on two bottles at a time.

I'd highly recommend this shampoo to anyone looking for something that will add moisture to overworked hair and something that will be gentle on the scalp.

This Shampoo is everything

By sweetdreamerT

Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

This shampoo is amazing, This shampoo actually removed Castol Oil out of my hair, and we all know Castol Oil is hard to get out and the smell of it is not pretty. It moisturized my 3B curls they feel bouncy and moisturized, I also bought the whole kit as well and Im impressed. Made my color d hair look healthy again!! Wouldnt recommend it if you have thin hair, or straight hair because your hair is going to get greasy. But overall is amazing.

          Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

          I love this product because it cleans without completely stripping the hair from its natural oils. I usually have trouble finding shampoos that don't cause dandruff and this really doesn't irritate my scalp at all. I did put it doesn't lather well because it doesn't create suds, but that is because of the natural ingredients. The smell is great and long lasting. I dye my hair and it has greatly improved the texture of my hair. I will definitely buy this product again.

            I loved the smell of this but after using 4 times I've decided my hair hates it. It makes my hair feel very heavy and like straw.

              its nice for fine hair because it leaves a little residue. Which sounds like a terrible thing but really it gives the hair more heft which is nice and even a little hold.
              It is extremely gentle on fragile hair as well.

                Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

                This was the first Shea Moisture product I purchased a few years ago and I have never used another shampoo since. I have naturally curly hair that is a prominent 3a with some whirls and tighter parts too (2c/3b). I like this shampoo because it cleans my hair but is so softening that it does not even feel like it's supposed to be shampoo. It actually helps DETANGLE because it has slip. And for those of you that have to have lather, it lathers! I also love how short the ingredient list still is (despite the formula change, it's still minimal). Shea Moisture is always improving things and coming up with new stuff but if this shampoo was gone I would be very sad. I will try new lines and venture among their other product lines but this is the shampoo for this girl.

                  I had high hopes for this product. It did not lather well, at all. I had to keep adding more and adding more. It worked great the first couple of days but then I noticed my hair was not feeling clean. The top of my hair looke nice but if I lifted the top layer and my hair was so greasy and dirty. I keept trying it and found that my hair was starting to fall out and break. I finally figured out it could be the shampoo so I stopped using it and threw the bottle away.

                        I love the JBCO line but I decided to try this line after reading that it's a good product for transitioning. I didn't care for it AT ALL! Nothing felt special about this product. I actually was going to return it but I decided to try it in my daughters (natural) hair. It works well for her but I would NOT repurchase it. I'm sticking to the JBCO line.
