Most Helpful Positive Review Best shampoo I've ever tried
I love this shampoo so much I wish I would have found it sooner. It has improved the overall health of my hair by making my curls more bouncy, soft, and adding shine to them. I love the fact that it is not tested on animals and it contains no hash chemicals.
Most Helpful Critical Review I would not buy this again
First I would like to say that this is not a bad shampoo, but it was definitely not for me. If you have very thick, very curly hair, this would probably work great for you. But for me I have wavy (2b/2c) hair, and this did not clean my hair at all. When I first started using it I really liked it, but after about a week I noticed my hair was getting unusually greasy and nothing I did could wash it out. I think the oils in this shampoo just started building up on my hair and made it very very greasy. Main point: if you have fine hair like me this is probably not the product for you. If you have very thick curly hair and just want a mild lather this would probably work well. If you have hair similar to me I would suggest the manuka honey and mafura oil shampoo, that one is my favorite.

Coconut is not a cleanser at all so it makes my hair greasy. The conditioner works great but wouldn't recommend the shampoo. And the smell is a little weird
Ingredient change gave me allergic reaction
Mags from Midwest
My curls LOVE this shampoo & conditioner, and I was using it for years, then they changed the ingredients and my neck got contact dermatitis. This has to do with my skin (neck esp.) being very sensitive to certain preservatives, this didn't have them and now it does - my neck is proof lol such a bummer

It's a nice gentle shampoo and actually helps detangle, but it sometimes weighs down curls at the root and makes my scalp itch slightly. It doesn't lather up much, which is good for my hair, but something to be aware of if you're used to lots of suds.
Lena from Fremont
As with any shampoo, it took a little time (approx. 2 weeks) for my hair to fully adjust. This shampoo keeps oil under control for several days, makes my curls (3a) feel soft, strong, and bouncy, and leaves a subtle sweet smell to my hair. This shampoo is very low lather but it still an effective cleanser. Check the sheamoisture guide if this shampoo is suitable for your curl type, give your hair time to adjust, and massage into your hair a little deeper.
Adds shine and strength Love it!
Melimel from undisclosed
This shampoo works wonders for my 4B /4C natural hair. I've been looking for a moisturizing shampoo that adds shine and helps my hair look healthy for a while, but I think I've found the best one for my hair. After only 2 wash days I'm noticing hair that looks and feels healthier.
Great for thick, curly hair!
Wild Flower from undisclosed
After 30 years on this planet I have found a product that works. My hair is clean. No oily residue. My curls are lovely and soft. No frizz and no crunchy jell. I have always been so frustrated when I go to the salon because hair stylist don't know what to do with my hair. If you have thick, curly and full volume hair then this is the product for you.
Don't do it
Scoops from Texas
I've been only using this for a WEEK and my hair has never felt worse. It still feels greasy after washing and just please don't.
Gabriella from Baltimore
Really brings out your curls and smells like summer 10/10
Glox from Miami
I do have mixed feelings about this shampoo, its a bit stripping so i only like to use it in my roots and only a little dolip, it also has a weird smell kind of like hair dye
DO NOT BUY
sarah1234 from undisclosed
This was actually the worst product I've ever used on my hair. It left a nasty residue in my hair and when it dried it looked and felt so greasy and dirty as if it had not been washed in a week.. so gross. And it leaves your hair with absolutely so shine whatsoever, it just makes it look dry and dull. My hair legit feels like greasy straw after using this. Do not ever put this product on your hair, it will RUIN it.

Great cleaning, especially with no sulphates. Soft, great smelling hair.
Very bad, drying
Urweird from undisclosed
This shampoo made my scalp too oily and caused my hair to fall out, after only 2 times of usage. Overpriced and ineffective. I do not recommend at all.
Anii from undisclosed
I lost so much hair with this product.
I definitely do not recommend.
Effective and Moisturizing
Simone from undisclosed
I have type 3a/3b hair that is very thin and fine and I tried this shampoo, and it really helps my hair feel clean, smooth, and silky. It is also very moisturizing for my dry scalp. It doesn't weigh my curls down or feel very heavy on my hair. I really love the Coconut & Hibiscus line by Shea Moisture!! I would recommend this product to any of my family members and friends. I will definitely be buying this again!
I stopped it for 3 months-so many regrets
Ana from DC
I used this shampoo and conditioner for years and I decided to use a shampoo that costs >$30 for 3 months but my curls were definitely not the same. I have now been using it for only one week and my curls are back.
Not great for curly hair

I am not happy with the product. Weighs the curls down.

this product smells great and looks great, however after using this for a bit i noticed my hair was very very very frizzy and shortly after my hair is in giant rats nests.
I will purchase again

Previously Shear Moisture had this shampoo for "thin" curly hair, however, I can't find it anymore so I'm trying the "thick" curly hair shampoo
Molly from undisclosed
The 1st bottle I bought was a little watery but worked wonderfully on my hair. So I bought a 2nd bottle. This bottle was noticeably thicker. No matter how long I rinse my hair it
leaves a sticky residue. I can not even run my fingers threw my hair. I have tried this bottle 3 times with the same results every time. I will not be buying another bottle. It's a shame. I really did like the first bottle I bought.
Itching and Dandruff
hhicks from Ga
I bought this line from Shea Moisture a few months ago because I wanted a more affordable alternative to try before spending so much money on other high end curl-friendly brands like DevaCurl. I noticed after repeated use that my scalp became itchy and dandruff was falling like crazy on my shoulders. There are even places on my hairline were it became scabbed over from the dryness. I just recently repurchased my favorite DevaCurl products that I had been using and am going to throw this out. I figured the more expensive hair care I trust would be easier to afford now that Ulta offers AfterPay. I gave two stars because my curls did look great when using the curl milk from this line. I'm not sure if it's the shampoo and conditioner or the whole line that did this to my scalp but I'm discontinuing use of all of it. I never had these issues with DevaCurl or other brands I have tried so I'm just going to stick to what I know and love!
Moisture? Yeah right
carebear from undisclosed
I used this and its accompanying conditioner until the bottle was empty. I figured my dry hair was just because it was adjusting to this new shampoo but my dead ends and the 6 inches I had to cut off would beg to differ. Not only did it suck the moisture out of my hair but caused it to fall flat and look matted and clumped together despite me trying to get all the shampoo and conditioner out. This look my shower routine from 10 minutes to 20 because of how long it took to get out. I have since started a new shampoo and conditioner that is not only better for the environment but also my budget and hair. I would never purchase this again and would never recommend anyone else to.
Alexandria from undisclosed
I noticed a sizable hair loss when i first washed my hair with this product. I didn't think much bc i'm always using Shea Moisture Products. I put my hair in braids like i normally do and wore my protective style. When I washed my hair a week and a half later (today), I want to cry bc of the clumps of hair that are falling out of my scalp. Every time i run my finger through my hair I get more and more hair coming out. It wont stop. I have a hard head and I treat my hair good. This product has been the only change. I love Shea moisture but after this, i might have to stop using all products from them
Formula change- super disappointed
Steph A from Maryland
I was sad to realized they changed the formula. Once I had it in my hair, it was FULL of suds and made my hair dry, not once but twice. I'm so upset because I thought I finally found the shampoo to give my curls life and now this. Can't return because I lost the receipt so I will be trashing it.
made my hair fall out
mrsmartin428 from United States
this is awful, made my hair feel like straw and fall out in clumps.

Cleans my hair without stripping my hair of natural oils. Leave hair soft and manageable.
