          I've tried everything in my daughters beautiful curls (mixed chicks, coconut oil, it's a 10, etc) and for a long time Mixed Chicks worked great, but as she's getting older it began to leave her hair looking dry and her curls more frizzy. Coconut oil also dried her hair out and it's in so many products it seems. So I gave this leave in conditioner a try and we love it! Her hair was soft and curls in tact even after sleeping on it!

            from OR

            Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Leave-In Conditioner:

            I've been using this product on my thin hair for the last couple weeks, and I love it. I use a generous amount starting in the middle and down to the ends and then take the excess and massage my scalp. It smells lovely (like vanilla) and has a lotion-y texture but doesn't weigh my hair down. It also detangles well without causing too much breakage, and my hair is SOFT.

            As far as my hair thickening/regrowing, I haven't seen any noticeable change, but overall I'm happy with the product as a leave-in conditioner.

            Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Leave-In Conditioner:

            I am a caucasian female with natural hair that is very beach-wavy. My hair is ultra fine, it tangles super easily, and I am extremely tender-headed so I must use conditioner. My scalp gets oily rather quickly regardless of the fact that I use a natural shampoo bar and I don't wash my hair every day. I bought this product because the ends of my hair were drying out (due to using too much Apple Cider Vinegar), but this product just didn't mesh well with my hair. I used this after I got out of the shower. My hair was towel-dried and pretty damp. I only applied a teensy amount to my hair's ends, and it made my hair so greasy that I had to wash it AGAIN. I had to use a clarifying shampoo to remove the product because my natural shampoo was too gentle for the job. I used the product once since that day, but I ended up with the same greasy result.

            I do think this product would work amazingly for kinky, curly, thick, or immensely dry hair. It smells wonderful. A little goes a long way; a tub will last you for a good while. I guess people with fine hair could use this as a mask instead of a daily leave-in conditioner? I don't know, but I will try to find some use for mine.

            I love this! My hair was so dry and looked dead before i used this. Now, my hair is SUPER soft.
            One thing that you have to keep in mind is that to not get too much product on your scalp. Because it did make my roots/scalp look greasy, so i use a TINY bit on my scalp and then work my way down, focusing on my ends. Will definitely buy again when i run out :)

            • Q:

              I know the treatment mask in this same product line you don't recommend we keep in longer than the time listed on the directions. But I was wondering if it would be okay to use this product as an overnight mask for my hair. My assumption is that if it is safe for daily use it should be fine but my goal is to fix my hair health not make it worse.
