    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

    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.

    More for Natural less for transitioning

          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.

            It has been so hard to find a hydrating shampoo for my wavy to curly long hair. This one works and has helped heal my tresses-in-need.

                My hair has never looked better. Even my stylist asked what I was using, because it is so soft and shiny. My color treated hair is so much healthier. It does not cause the color to fade.

                    let me start by saying i'm a 4b hair type with fine hair. I only wash with shampoo once a month otherwise my hair is brittle and will break. I am on the search for a product that doesnt dry out my hair. well this wasnt it. this left my hair dry and feeling straw like. the smell isnt bad but its not great either. as far as not lathering well, a shampoo dosent have to lather to cleanse so that didnt bother me. But unfortunately my search continues.

                    Comments about SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo:

                    I have mixed feelings about this product. It worked best back in September when my hair was in a very bad place. It totally revived it! Now that it's healthy I have to wash my hair every day as it get's really oily really fast. The smell gives me a headache so that's not fun. I still use it like once a month for extra moisture.

                      I find myself using more product than i would with other shampoos to get a good lather but otherwise no complaints. Its an okay shampoo. I love that it's free of sulfates parabens, etc. (Had to switch out my products because I recrntly developed eczema and wanted to eliminate possible chemical irritants)

                            I have been using SLS and organic and natural shampoo for 2 years now. About my hair, I have medium length wavyish thick hair that is healthy but looks dry and very frizzy almost wire like. I wanted a shampoo that cleaned my hair well and left me with silky easy to manage hair. I did not get anything I wanted and I am trying really hard to get through the bottle. I have been using this shampoo for about 4 months now and it does lather well but my hair never really feel very clean and I think it is giving my some dandruff. It did nothing to reduce frizziness unfortunately. I have also tried the conditioner and the other Shea Moisture Coconut shampoo and conditioner- all terrible. Will not purchase any other Shea Moisture products as they all could be a lot better.

                                This shampoo is sulfate-free, salt-free, and very gentle, so it is ideal for color-treated and chemically-treated hair including keratin-treated hair.

                                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.
