    Not good!!

    By Brittany

    from New Hampshire

    Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Shampoo:

    I used this product with the conditioner every night in the shower for about a month. I know that is probably not enough time for it to start working, however my hair was falling out 10x more than before when using it! I was pulling out chucks in the shower. I was really bummed because the reviews were fantastic for this product and I thought I finally found something that would make my hair not so thin and with less falling out. I love SheaMoisture and their products so I am not shaming the brand, just this product and the matching conditioner did not work for me I guess.

    Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Shampoo:

    This is one of the best clariflying shampoos next to The Baobab & Tea Tree Oils Low Porosity Protein-Free Shampoo and The African Water Mint & Ginger Detox Hair & Scalp Gentle Shampoo! I only use it once a month so I won't dry my scalp out! I use it wash out all that product build up I had in my hair for the remainder of the month! I do have to follow it up with a moisturizing shampoo during the winter months so my hair don't dry out! It smells like vanilla extract! It has a good lather! It's also best to use when you're using flat irons on your hair. Really the Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore line!

    Opposite of everything it says

    By WornArmor

    from Dallas, TX

    Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Shampoo:

    I see many other women with my same complaints but gave it a much higher rating. Why? Anyway it doesn't lather and it's thick like motor oil. It claims to reduce shedding, remove buildup, moisturize and promote growth. I have to wash 3x to feel clean because it does NOT remove buildup and it makes 100 strands of hair fall out each time! Since using my scalp is oily, and I have a ton of oily dandruff from the buildup. Yuck, I know. My hair looks like a birds nest it's so dry! I'm not lying about this to be a jerk it's truly doing the exact opposite of everything I needed it to do! I'm not the only one saying it, but I'm the only one giving it the corresponding rating so that's why it has 4 stars. Hotel shampoo would have been better on my hair. I used almost the whole thing because I'm like "I paid for this better knock it out" but there's 5oz left and I'm fed up! Tossing it in the trash

      Too heavy for my hair

        Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Shampoo:

        I'm a big fan of Shea Moisture products. This one was disappointing. I have thick highlighted hair. It left a coating that I could not rinse out and felt greasy. I tried diluting the shampoo. But even at a ratio of 1 part shampoo to 2 parts water it still was much too heavy.

            Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Shampoo:

            My hair is 3B/3C curly and transitioning from a relaxer (halfway). I'm a big fan of this Shea Moisture line. I rinse well to rinse out all the products, then shampoo. JBCO lathers into a light frothy clean lather and smells fresh. It also leaves my hair feeling clean and hydrated before conditioning. Best of all it has every ingredient that strengthens hair and makes hair grow, given the stress from half the length being chemically relaxed. Whether I diffuse, roller set or occasionally blow dry, it really protects my hair, prevents frizz, and daily hair loss has diminished! I highly recommend this line if you have chemically treated your hair and need to restore it. I also alternate with the High Porosity Co-wash, always follow with the JBCO condish, then the JBCO Leave-in. So good!

            Comments about SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Shampoo:

            Made my hair grow quicker and thicker than any other product. It is very liquidy, so I found it easier to spread around my scalp.
            It requires a lot of water to get a lather going, but if you mix it with another shampoo (I alternated between Neutrogena Anti-Residue and Caviar's Hydration Shampoo) it goes on like a dream.
            The smell is sweet with a strong caster oil (?) after smell. But the smell doesn't stay in your hair after you rinse it out, and if it does it smells like vanilla.

            • Q:

              I naturally have loose curly hair, with humidity in south Florida was getting really frizzy and hard to blow dry which is my preference. Due to hand pain, which I speculate is carpal tunnel I did the Brazilian keratin and have noticed hair breakage even though my hair looks shiny and is very soft, but not the strands look super thin. Having had family do the keratin and they haven't complained about keratin breaking their hair I tried it. I love how it's straight but wan to stop the breakage and the hair loss, if that's another problem I may not be aware of. Will this product help the make hair thicker and stronger to avoid breakage post keratin ??
