      Shea Moisture is life changing! I had a bad dye job done which left me with dry, damaged hair. I began using this product based on a suggestion from a friend. I am so happy that I gave it a shot.

      I was afraid at first as I am not their target audience (I am Caucasian). I feared it would be too heavy for my hair type. That isn't the case though! For the first time in my life I can now wash, air dry, lightly spritz and go.

          This formula contains no protein and has natural oils that hydrate really well. It's a great choice for dry, damaged hair that can't tolerate protein. It lathers really well, which is unusual for a sulfate free shampoo and it smells great. I also use the matching conditioner and they make my hair soft and shiny and full of body and bounce and it responds really well to my styling efforts. They are a bit pricier than typical drugstore products but are well worth the extra money. They are as good as high ends products. The mask is also excellent. I use it for 45 minutes or so once a week with heat and it soothes my parched strands and lasts through several weeks of abuse, lol! I also use it for 10-15 minutes in lieu of regular conditioner if my hair is feeling really dry. It works well either way. I highly recommend this Shea Moisture formula.

            Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

            This product is exactly what I've been searching for. I am African American with natural hair that I wear blown-out/flat-ironed straight most days. This product leaves my hair incredibly hydrated, silky smooth, and alleviates the need to regularly flat iron since my deeply moisturized locks are less prone to revert in 90%+ humidity here in DC. I can't say enough good about this product. I've regularly used more expensive products (e.g. living proof) and will happily stick with this product from now on!

              I'm early in my transition from relaxed to natural. I tried this shampoo for the first time, (because of the reviews) and was highly disappointed.My hair type is 4a, this product left my hair squeaky clean, tangled & dry right after rinsing. I had to immediately follow up with a hydrating leave in conditioner.

              Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

              Long story short menopause caused my hair to be Very dry and frizzy. Have tried many expensive brand named products for 2 years now and nothing had helped. This was inexpensive so I thought why not. COMPLETELY changed my hair with 2 uses. NO joke just 2 and I noticed a difference. Do not know how 2 uses could do this but it did. Even my hairdresser said wow your hair feels great that was after 3 week!

              I love this shampoo and conditioner. I've been looking for a shampoo that actually does what it says. The shampoo overall leaves my hair feeling soft, clean and manageable. I don't even have to use the conditioner but I do. I also use the conditioner as a leave in. Great products. I am definitely going to keep purchasing these! :)

                  Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

                  This is the only shampoo that I have found to not kill my hair, everything else I have tried dries my hair out and makes it feel damaged and tangled. I am white/mexican I work out daily almost and my hair gets a bit greasy at the root. This shampoo ends up leaving me with build up after about 4-5 days. This is still the best shampoo I have come by, even compared to salon/expensive brands. I use whatever "sulfate free" shampoo that kills my hair once a week to clear the build up.
