Most Helpful Positive Review So glad I found this!!!
I just use this on my thick wavy frizzy hair and I love the curls it gave me. My hair is curly/frizzy in the summer and indecisive waves in the winter that go frizzy and flat so I always end up straightening it in the colder months. This gave my curl definition and made my hair look healthy and fun! I did use a little gel for better hold. If you are on the fence, go buy it and try it a couple of times with the right amount for your hair. I do imagine that it could weigh thin hair down a bit, but if you have frizzy thicker hair or waves or curly hair then you will love it! I will update in the humid summer months.

Brought my waves back from the dead
Katie from CT
I just started learning how to take care of wavy hair and I was honestly a bit skeptical at first because I thought that this product would be too heavy for my hair type (2a/2b) and it would just weigh down my hair but this is literally the first thing that's gotten my waves to stay in place

I've been loving it
not worth it
emma from VA
I did not like this product. the shampoo has a very buttery smell and my hair does NOT feel clean after i wash it with this product. the shampoo and conditioner did nothing for my curls
Barb from Michigan
I absolutely love this product
Leaves my curls soft
Lucy from Savannah
I really love how this product leaves my hair soft and manageable, but I think it smells off... Thankfully my gel covers up the smell for me.
Made my dry curls so defined!
Yuh from VA
I've always had super dry and frizzy curls and this product is so light weight and redefined my curls and my hair is now so smooth!
I *like* it
Hailga from Georgia
I like this product. I don't have curly hair. I saw this on tiktok and saw that it helps with frizz and texture. It definitely does for me. I have thick pin straight hair. I put it in my hair for about 30 minutes before getting in the shower. It works best when used with the rest of the line! (Shampoo and conditioner)
For actual curly hair
Addie from California
So I have 2c wavy hair and this is way too heavy for my fine waves. This works well for my mothers tighter curls but she also has fine hair so I do find that it weighs her hair down a little bit so I think this is best for people who have thick to coarse hair. Also the texture feels something like a mixture between leave in conditioner and gel and can feel gunky like you didn't wash all the conditioner out of your hair.
I would buy this again.
Mariah from El Cajon ,CA
I use this for my daughters hair. A little goes a long way. It leaves her hair bouncy and curly.
CurlyJ from Baton Rouge, LA
If I could give this zero stars, I would. Absolutely no help with frizz control, makes my curls (2b/2c) look flat and wavy instead of curly and also knots it up so so badly. Washing it out of my hair the next day I lost so much extra hair to de-tangling than I normally do. Also makes my hair feel oily but somehow dry. Garbage. If you want something cheap that works, try Garnier Curl Sculpt Conditioning Cream Gel. Works amazing but I wanted to try something new.
Instantly better, defined curls wow
brie from Colorado
Ive been looking for a product like this for years. I have a very sensitive scalp and can't use a lot of products but thus far have had zero issues with this. On top of actually getting my hair clean without an allergic reaction I also get the benefit of very defined curls with lots of shine and very little frizz. The lack of frizz makes my curls look more defined than they every have and i changed nothing in my routine but this shampoo and conditioner.
Courtney from NJ
This has been my go to shampoo and conditioner set for literally years. Within the past couple of weeks since I repurchased, though, I've noticed some major differences that is putting this set off my radar. Number one, the shampoo DOES NOT LATHER. Like, at all. Per my hairstylist, I usually shampoo twice, and there's kind of a lather the second time, but still, not really. The conditioner is fine, but the past couple of times I've washed my hair, it's turned out TERRIBLE. My curls are losing their pattern. My hair is way frizzier than usual, and it even gets crazy frizzy when it's dry! That's not supposed to happen! I suspect they went through some kind of reformulation, that's the only explanation I can think of. Which makes me so sad because I used to love this shampoo and I'm so disappointed it's not working for me anymore and I have to go look for a new one. Sad, SheaMoisture, very sad.
NOT a shampoo
Roseoa from NE
This is a defining cream, which gives your hair hold and shiny definition. I wash my hair a couple of times a week, and use a great conditioner every single day. After getting out of the shower with dripping hair, i wring my hair out so it doesn't drip, and take a little dollop of this dream cream, rubbing it between my palms and flipping my head upside down. I scrunch my hair as close to my scalp as possible. For reference i have coarse drumstick width curls. After i scrunch i use the marc anthony curl lotion to seal in. MAKES MY CURLS SO DEFINED AND AWESOME.
you either love it or hate it
kathleen < 3 from florida
this product is extremely thick, heavy, and moisturizing. i like this product, but i can see how some people would hate it. it can easily weigh down your hair and make it feel greasy if you use too much, so use it sparingly!
Product dries hair out, does not do well on thick hair.
Liv from MO
I really wanted to like this product... I'm blonde and have naturally thick curly hair. I do color my hair as well. The Sheamoisture shampoo & and conditioner really dried my hair out and after a while of using it, it had given me dandruff. It had a lot of heavy oils in it and I had figured out my hair type does not like heavy oils in shampoo & conditioner. So I do not recommend this shampoo & conditioner if you have thick curly hair.
sam from chicago
it works very well and makes your hair nice and curly. don't add too much because it will make your hair crunchy. a little bit on your finger will do!!
"Work into a lather" what a joke..
sillyxostar from Buffalo, NY
you can't "lather" this.. at all. I'm sorry, you CAN, if you use half the bottle! SO mad I purchased this. It makes my hair fall out more than normal AND makes it greasy, somehow.. because I can't even get it to wash more than an inch worth of my scalp when I DON'T use half the bottle.. Will not buy again.
I would recommend it
Lovely Lucy from Scranton, PA
I use it with a gel
Tana from New York
This plus a denman brush is absolutely heaven my curls from my wash and go literally lasted days with this OMG I love!
Great Smell Great Hold
Desert Curls from AZ
Gives my curls great definition without being crunchy. Don't cake it on, a little goes a long way. Also I love the smell of coconut! The smell isn't too overpowering and I can't smell it after applying but I get compliments when I'm hugged.
If tight curls is your goal, look no further
Curly girly from St. Paul
THIS PRODUCT CONTAINS PROTEIN. IF YOU HAVE PROTEIN SENSITIVE HAIR, USE SPARINGLY. the entire coconut and hibiscus line is great for enhancing curl definition. This is one of my staples. When I had heat damaged curls, this helped enhance any curl pattern that remained. It's a bit thicker, but it really holds a tight curl.
Defines but does NOT lather
Laura L from Fort Collins, CO
I wouldn't say I have super curly hair , but I would definitely say I have pretty strong waves. I got this shampoo and conditioner because I wanted to moisturize and define them , which it definitely did BUT this shampoo doesn't later at all. Which is really annoying. In order to get it to lather even slightly you have to use a TON of product. I like that it defines and moisturizes , but I'm not going to be buying it again solely because it's very annoying to use.
This product is a disgrace!
Gina from New Jersey
This product was a mistake to buy. It made my beautiful head of hair fall out and it took many years for my hair to go back to the way it was! What an attack on black women's natural hair!
AS from TN
I guess I wanted something more natural, it smells nice but a bit artificially. It made my hair tangly... I didn't like that because my hair is long and it took me a while to comb my hair
