Most Helpful Positive Review The best curly hair product
This is the best curly hair product I've ever used. It helps define my curls, make them soft & makes my hair smell good. I have 3b hair by the way. I'm recovering from bleach damage & Shea moisture has improved my curls so much. Here's some before & after pics....
Most Helpful Critical Review Yuck, the formula changed.
I am truly heartbroken that SheaMoisture changed the formulas of products that I used for YEARS. Why? WHy? WHY? The old formula was perfect for my hair. It had the thick consistency necessary to keep the frizz at bay. It had mostly natural ingredients. This one has glycerin, which is DEATH for my hair in my climate. Truly a sad day.

I was really excited to try this product because it was curly girl approved but unfortunately left my hair weighed down. I have 2b hair that is in between thick and thin. My waves did come out very pretty, but my hair at the bottom is so greasy it still looks wet. This product would be perfect if my hair was a little thicker. I'm still on the hunt for a curly girl approved product for my hair. Before I ever buy a product I look at reviews to see if it worked for someone with my same hair type, and I only found one review for this product and decided to take a chance and try this. Definitely a great product, just not for my hair type
Sav from FLORIDA
As a biracial woman I've had a hard time finding the right haircare.. even with a mom who is a hairdresser! I've tried expensive products to get my hair to remain calm in the Florida humidity and I am so thankful I give this one a random go! My hair stayed frizz free for DAYS I used to wash my hair everyday but now I don't feel I have to! It makes my curls sit beautifully and keeps from frizz and poof taking over my head. I will be using this for years to come I'm certain!
Great for thick curly hair
Theresa from NJ
I love all Shea Moisture products. This one smells great. The only thing I would say is that if you have thinner hair do not use this. It weighs your curls down. I use this on my 15 year old daughter who has thick curly hair. It moisturizes very well and helps her curls pop.

This is some good stuff but the packing is not right. This product needs to be in a jar or tube because you have a hard time getting it out. I had to cut my bottle open and put it in a jar myself. Please redo the packaging and it will be perfect.
I thought I just had frizzy wavy hair
Shorton from undisclosed
I am amazed. I've tried mousses before, but was drawn to this product because it isn't crunchy and I already love shea moisture shampoo and conditioner. My hair has become more healthy from the shampoo/conditioner and this curl milk was what I needed to let my hair air dry. I am half Asian but have frizzy, wavy hair. I would notice a curl or two from time to time, but always thought my hair looked bad if I let it air dry. I have always needed to curl or straighten it. Not any more and I am so excited!

Not for me
angel22 from undisclosed
This product made my hair very greasy, oily, and weighed down. My day 2 hair felt like day 6 hair. It is a very heavy product. The curl smoothie works better for my curls.

my favorite curl cream ever! it's super lightweight, perfect for thin/fine curly hair. it's moisturizing, but not too defining so i always make sure to pair it with a gel.
it has been almost two years that we buy this product again
Ella from Seattle WA
Works great on my daughter's curly hair.
Karinna from Coral Springs, FL
This product along with the mousse is a must have.
Disappointed in this Product
KLM from Florida
I used this after washing and conditioning my hair to add another layer of moisture and it has done absolutely nothing for me. There's literally just a ton of white residue/build up on my hair and I'm going to have to wash it again because it didn't absorb my hair at all. I was really looking for something to add more penetrative moisture that I could leave in my hair after doing the normal conditioner because my hair has been mistreated the last few months due to being home most of the time because of covid.
I will be looking for another option for a deep conditioning or protein treatment to restore moisture and help my curls bounce back. I had high hopes for a good moisturizing styler.
Curly hair must have
SuSuMagoo from 666th St
I love this leave in it does it's job and great for the price I have other expensive curly leave in products but I always go back to this one whenever I want to save money/ switch between products and it does it's job wonderfully
Love this product!!

Does everything it says.

I have a mix of 3A/3B/3C. All my curls are different sizes. This leave my hair. Silky and moisturized. Its light doesn't weigh hair down.
This product was not for me
Gina from Harlingen, Texas
I have a mixture of 2B, 2C, and 3A, 3B curls but this product was a little bit too heavy for my hair. I really like it and it smells good and my curls looked fine but it was too heavy. it probably works best for 3C to 4C curls
Kris from NY
Hard to get product out of bottle and made my hair greasy.
bratty 2b to 3a curls
pitmom15 from oklahoma
my curls can't evert get their stuff together. I bought this not reading much about it. then read reviews and was so terrified. however first use im heavily impressed. I do not have ethnic hair but most stuff.mixed with my well water dries it out. I have not had the greasy feeling at all. my curls are more defined than I have ever seen them. if it does get oily I also know it's my hair reacting to the moisture not the product. your hair has to get used to different products that nourish your hair. also i can't stop touching my hair because its so soft and bouncy. waiting on the shampoo and conditioner to see what will happen with them added to the mix. I love it so far. I am super sensitive to smells and this isn't bad to me either. I keep smelling it too lol. really happy I ended up with the product want to try more from the line!
Sidney from Denver
I love this product. I scrunch it into my hair after using my micro fiber towel. It's the only hair product I come back to again and again. The bottle lasts forever, I use it every day.
Love this! Makes my waves look amazing!
Wavy hair girl from Los Angeles, ca
I have been straightening my hair for years now. And it has become super dry an frizzy. So I decided to embrace my naturals curls. However, since my hair hair is dry and damaged doing this without any product made it super frizzy plus it looked super dry. But after adding this to my hair, my curls, well more like waves, looked so shiny and soft, plus all the frizz was gone! It also added more volume to my hair. I really was rocking those waves! Plus, it's a pretty clean product too!
Too greasy for me
Emily G from Connecticut
I have natural thin, brown curls and struggle to find the right product all the time! I tried this out bc of the reviews but it keeps my hair wet for hours (bc I mostly air dry) and then very very g r e a s y all day long.
I would buy again
M from Ct
I use this to style my hair after I have added a leave in conditioner and leaves my hair soft and managable. I have unruly wavy hair which usually needs a lot of moisture and this helps keep My hair from drying out as well as styling it
I really want to love this product
brendac102 from undisclosed
I have long curly hair and I've been searching for products to help me control frizz after I wash my hair. I have tried the Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Smoothie and liked it but it made my hair crunch a little. I bought a bottle of this product to try but sadly I couldn't get it out of the bottle. You see....I have arthritis in my thumbs and the plastic was just too hard to squeeze without hurting myself. Won't you consider putting this in a tube that's easy to use? I will post a new review once I can actually use the product (ie My husband is home to squeeze the bottle!).
Good for Transitioning
jadav14 from undisclosed
This was my go to product when I was transitioning to natural hair. It left my hair very moisturizerized and soft.

yesia123 from undisclosed
I have naturally curly hair but my hair is really thick I tried using this product to see if I could enchant my curls a little more .It does work but its really thick I suggest to mix the product with water so it not too thick.SheaMoisture[product:shea-moisture-coconut-&-hibiscus-curl-&-shine-conditioner-trial-&-travel-size]
