    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.

                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.

                    We live in Napa, my husband is a winemaker. We have struggled for years to find a lightly scented, color-friendly, intensely conditioning conditioner. This stuff is deeply conditioning but my husband nearly had a fit over the smell. In contrast, I purchased aveda shampoo and conditioners, which cost at least 4 times more and conditioned my hair just as well. When I came out of the shower, my husband said, "hmmmm, smells like a woman." So I'll use this if he's out of town but other than that, no.

                        I have thick, wavy, unruly hair that doesn't take too well to the California drought. I've tried so many different products and nothing worked. I was brought to the point of wearing a bun everyday as my hair looks ridiculous any other way. Dry, frizzy, split ends. It as awful. I was looking for something affordable that didn't have harsh chemicals and alcohol (sulfates too), and thought I would have to get something expensive online. But I ran across this brand and fell in love.

                        My entire routine consists of products from this company and it has completely changed my hair. I start with the argan oil treatment, then wash with this shampoo, towel dry, add the African black soap scale elixir to my scalp after and finish with the leave in curl conditioner.

                        I never get a dry itchy scalp. My hair is smooth, manageable and lustrous. And I can do two to three days without washing. It's amazing.
